    I'm fairly new to upgrading my firmware as I've only done 2 (stock to .90, then to .99) so if I can re download the software onto the newly upgraded os then why do I need to back them up?

    I have poynt and slacker installed at the moment but from what I remember, all I had to do for slacker is to redownload it and sign in with my acct info. I'm not sure if poynt works the same way but what are the advantages of backing them up vs redownloading and installing from scratch?

    thanks for any insight.

    I dunno. It might be easier to Install everthing at once then to have to go back and install your 3rd party apps later. Especially if you have a lot of them. If you only have two I guess it really doesn't matter.

    thanks. hmm I guess it would make more sense that way if you had a bunch of programs since you wouldn't have to remember all of the ones that you installed.

    Yea, it kind of streamlines the process. It installs them all at once as part of your upgrade process.

    I have about ten third party apps and I had the 3rd party backup problem where it was cached and only got the incremental application changes. Well, it took me about forty five minutes to find the apps on the web download and install. With a third party apps backup the restore is under a minute.

    Yep, that's exactly why you do it. Some apps you need to take extra steps to have OTA links sent to your phone (QuickPull and BOLT for two). Royal PITA. Easier just to back them up periodically and just before an update.

    i back up first cause if computer crashes during a backup it doesnt really matter...... if your loading an OS and it crashes it kind of complicates things

    I have something like 40 apps right now...I can't imagine having to reinstall them one by one with each new leak. I would probably have stuck with .75...lol.
