HTC Hero :: Restoring Everything After Flashing A New ROM

May 8, 2010

I've flashed SenseHero 2.1 & 2.2 over the last week or so, and as soon as SenseEspresso is ready I'm going to flash that one too. My question is, is there a quick way to get your phone back to the way you like it? I currently use mybackup pro & Titanium backup, and it takes me a fair chunk of time to reinstall all my apps and set up my homescreens.Any suggestions? What do y'all do?

HTC EVO 4G :: Restoring Data After Flashing Rom

Oct 20, 2010

Just flashed with Myn's Warm TwoPointTwo. Went very smoothly. I used Titanium back up (free) and Astro file manager to back everything up.Take note this is my second time flashing a rom. First time went fine. I have restored all data and apps. Everything is restored perfectly except my text messages which i need the most. Don't worry i did a nandroid back up before even flashing. I thinking i did all the restoring correct. Whats the deal lol? I would hate to restore back to the android back up and redo the whole flashing process again. Any alternatives?

General :: Restoring After Failed Flashing

Mar 17, 2013

my SE Xperia Pro .I was flashing it to CM10 , flashed the core but that was the last thing done successfully. Clock work Mod recovery didn't launch , so firmware even didn't started to install. Now by switching it on I just get nice picture "xperia free project" and depressing dark after it. I cant launch recovery, SEUS at the first time stopped working very quickly, the second time said that there is modified software there, and thirdly ,at last, didn't recognize my phone at all. Can i do something with it, excepting using it like a brick?

HTC EVO 4G :: Restoring Applications After Rooting And Flashing Fresh?

Sep 28, 2010

Last night I rooted my Evo (Android 2.1) using Unrevoked 3.21, then flashed the new Fresh ROM and radios. I encountered several "gotchas" that may help others doing the same thing.

1. I had to try the Unrevoked program four times before the root "took". The first three times I got the message "Unable to obtain root. This happens sometimes" message. I would actually like to know (at least at a high level) why it failed the first three times. I tried it on a Win XP laptop the first two times, then switched to a Windows Vista machine, then back to my XP machine when it finally worked.

2. After verifying that my rooted Android 2.1 was working ok, I decided to flash the new Fresh ROM. First, I did a Titanium backup of everything on the phone, that went fast (although the Titanium interface could be improved. You have to go into the menu and select Batch to do the actual backup). As a fail-safe, I tried to do a backup of apps + data using MyBackup Pro. Unfortunately, it kept hanging on the app backup, so I just did a data backup. I also did an Astro backup of the apps, and (of course) I also did a nandroid backup of the current ROM (thanks to the good advice on this forum).

3. I then did a factory reset and cache wipe of the phone, then went ahead and flashed the latest Fresh ROM and radios. Both went very smoothly, I checked the version of the ROM and baseband in the phone settings and they match. Unfortunately, restoring the apps and data did NOT go smoothly at all. First, I discovered that Titanium doesn't seem to work as advertised. It didn't back up all my apps (I have over 150, guess that's a lot, but still!). A good example was Folder Organizer. It didn't get backed up so I had to re-download it. Next, Titanium didn't restore any of my data, SMS, call logs, home screen settings, nada. Fortunately, the MyBackup Pro data backup had almost all of that stuff, so I was able to get most of it back. The Astro backup was pretty useless the app list is not sorted by name (it uses the "com" package name") so it's virtually impossible to find what you're looking for. Lesson learned: if you've heavily customized your home screens, maybe flashing ROM's is not for you. If there's a better way to restore apps and settings after flashing, let us know!

4. Finally (and I believe this is a known issue) the FriendStream widget and Facebook contact linking is not working with this ROM.
At least I'm rooted now. Wireless tether works, the ROM works as advertised (scrolling and transitions are noticeably smoother due to the frame rate mod). I haven't had a chance to test 4G, I've got it turned on and will test around town. If it doesn't work then I'll restore the nandroid backup and go back to stock.

LG Ally :: Restoring Stock Rom After Flashing With ROM Manager

Aug 28, 2010

I rooted my phone using Universal Androot (worked perfectly) and then proceeded to install ROM Manager to flash a custom ROM to my Ally. I used the Flash ClockworkMod Recovery first (sucessfully) then used Backup Current ROM to backup the stock (V8) ROM (sucessfully). I then proceeded to install the Velocity 0.1.1 ROM (sucessfully).

I've searched here a bit, and am unclear as to the process to restore my stock ROM using ROM Manager. I believe it would work as follows?:

Use Manage and Restore Backups. Select backup I made, and then restore.

If I wanted to un-root, I could then just use Universal Androot to un-root the phone (although I havent tried that part yet).

Love the ROM, just curious how to go back if I need to.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Restoring Data Back On Phone

I have a question, for the apps we can download them again, but I backed up my people phone contacts to my SD card using Astro, how do I restore those contacts and my pictures once I do the upgrade, and is there a better program to back up the contacts from the phone to the PC, then send them back from the PC back onto the phone, would feel better having 2 different backups in case one does not work, can't hurt,

Sprint HTC Hero :: Flashing Radio And Pushing RA

May 26, 2010

Been running Fresh 2.1.1 for about a week now and it seems pretty good. But with 2.1.2 just out I'm planning on flashing that as soon as possible. I've been running the stock radio and RA and wanted to get some feedback on weather it would be beneficial to update both the radio and RA to the newest versions available before I flash to 2.1.2. My awake time is at about 10% and cell standby is using 48% of my battery while phone idle is using 44%. Does this sound normal? If not would flashing a new radio and RA help resolve these issues?

HTC Hero : Sms Vibrate Being Broken After Flashing A New Rom And Rebooting

Oct 14, 2010

Im having problems with my sms vibrate being broken after flashing a new rom and rebooting it the first time. The sms vibrate may or may not work on the first boot, but afterwards it usually doesnt work anymore after another reboot. This happens on pretty much any rom, usually a hit or miss but its happened like 5 times for the RCMix rom ive been trying to put on. So just wondering if any of you flash maniacs can shed on light on what i could be doing wrong. Everything else works fine, only the sms vibrate. I know i have all the settings correct.

So this is the order of what i do when i flash a new rom.
Wipe everything
Partition sd card (0/512)
Flash rom zip file
Flash kernal
Boot (sms vibrate usually works)
Do some settings
Reboot (this is when the sms vibrate stops working, if works, next boot it wont)

Sprint HTC Hero :: Flashing ROMS - Nandroid Backup

Mar 31, 2010

About two days ago the DamageControl2.0r ROM started giving me the WiFi issues, and where I am with no EVDO or even E network. I rely on the WiFi at work and home, and wherever else I may need it. So I attempted to flash back to Fresh2.0c using the wipe/reboot and all the normal steps. Well it kept booting back to the Damage Control ROM. Someone suggested I use Nanroid backup then tried reflashing the rom. Which ended up working. Well I then decided I wanted to try the New Kitchen, because I love tinkering with this stuff, and it wouldn't flash again. I had to use Nandroid backup to go back to Fresh2.0c and have it working properly. Is there something I could be missing completely?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Radio Flashing Compatible With Certain ROMs

Apr 20, 2010

Just a few questions on flashing a new radio on a Sprint Hero, as I'd like to be sure I won't brick my phone and there really don't seem to be many guides on this.

Are certain radios only compatible with certain ROMs? If so, what do you do if you want to flash a new ROM afterwards? In the event a radio flash fails, can you attempt to flash a different one or is your phone pretty much bricked at that point?

I'll probably have more questions later, as the thought of bricking my new Hero is well, I'd really rather not have to go back to my old BlackBerry.
