Re: this is How to restore the "Back up & Restore" app

If the Market isn't working for some odd reason then

go to settings -> applications -> unknown sources (make sure is selected)

now this is a bit tedious but

on your X10 download the apk from this site -> once you have the file pull down the notification bar -> tap on the downloded file -> install it

or you can open your app drawer and then tap on Downloads -> tap on the downloaded file -> install it

then just follow the steps on how to install the backup & restore

also go to

settings -> applications -> manage applications -> Market -> clear everything and try again to download something from the market

Other options to Backup & Restore (for future reference)

Contacts

just to play it safe sync your contacts w/ google if you haven't already

open your phonebook

 
press MENU button -> tap on Send Contacts -> select all -> send it to your email
 
on your computer
 
-> download the file -> go to your gmail -> click on contacts -> click on more actions -> on the drop down menu click on "import" -> choose the file -> and click import

SMS/MMS

if you don't want to use the backup & restore app then

Install "backup SMS" to back up your SMS and MMS to your Gmail

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.zegoggles.smssync&feature=search_result

or your SMS use

"backup & restore SMS"

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore&feature=search_result

or for your MMS use "Save MMS"

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.schwimmer.android.mmsextract&feature=search_result

Call Logs

And for call logs this is great

Apps

Don't worry so much about backing up your apps

on your computer go to

market.android.com -> log in -> click on My Library -> and send all your apps to your phone

(make sure you check on the market beforehand it should look similar to the pictures bellow)

Re: this is How to restore the "Back up & Restore" app

Hey,

I've tried the Megaupload link, but it's saying the link clicked is not available when I've tried to access it from my phone. It works fine on pc, though. I've tried with both checked and unchecked in apps....umm...Am I missing something here?

Thanks!!

=)
