    Full backup question

    When I do a "Full" backup through ActiveSync 3.8, hardreset, and restore, will all of my settings/registry hacks and applications be restored or just settings or what?

    Also when I upgrade my ROM and do a restore from my old ROM will the restore cause problems?

    Thanks!

    All will return

    Most here will say that the total restore from the old ROM is a bad thing to do. You can restore contacts, calendar, notes, email settings, and files, but shouldn't restore registry, programs, etc...

    You can restore it if you like, but if you do so you will overwrite any registry settings changed in the upgrade [if there are any].

    Personally, I would just love it if someone took a registry dump before the upgrade, and another after, and compared the two. That would put this issue to rest for a while.

    I suspect a restore won't lose you anything, but that is my personal opinion, not based in fact or law.
