if you have a lot of sms/mms the backup & restore will take forever or might not backthem up corectly

both apps above Backup SMS +    and    backup & restore SMS are great, this last one it's really fast

Re: 2.3.3 available (flashtool) for both x10i and x10a

I did this:

xrec backup (for when root & xrec are available again)

appmonster backup (it backs up apps to one folder & app data to another...easy restore if you've got no root)

flashtool 2.3.3 update

boot phone, enable non market apps & debugging

restart

enable usb data transfer

click install apks in flashtool

navigate to x10 drive letter/sdcard/appmonster2/old style backups

click ok...it runs and says it's done when it finishes.

reboot

all done!!

Re: 2.3.3 available (flashtool) for both x10i and x10a

but it works just fine, I'm using backup & restore on my Arc and it works just fine, I can restore my backup from my X10 to my arc and vice versa :smileyhappy:
