    Hello again! :awesome:

    As you may know, Cronos Froyo 1.3.0 is out. I want to get it, but I'm not sure what to do regarding apps and settings. Do I need Titanium Backup? What would that do? Would it help (a full wipe is recommended, so without a backup I'd need to reinstall everything all over again :cry2:)

    Thanks in advance

    This is why I am going to wait every few months before I rewipe my phone, unless there is an easier way without having to reinstall all my apps

    Delete any backups you already have (the TitaniumBackup folder on the SD card), run Titanium backup (it may be an idea to avoid backing up system data to avoid conflicts later on), if you use LaucherPro then back up your layout from the menu.
    Then just wipe/flash/boot install TitaniumBackup from the Market and sit through clicking "install" for every single app you have.

    If you pay for TitaniumBackup it will install all the apps without your input, but they cheap way is the long way.

    If you are using LauncherPro then be aware that Widgets do no carry over.
    They will be in their places but won't load or something. You will need to manually reposition them, apps however will remain in their places.

    Apparently my Hero running on 2.2 gets a better Quadrant score than the Moto Droid on 2.1..

    Wtf.
    JIT compilation. The first few runs it identifies the code that makes a bottleneck in the performance and caches the compiled version. Some stuff can be upto 4x quicker with it.

    Ya I know.
    But I still didn't expect it to jump so high, especially when my Hero failed epically at the graphics tests :P

    It looks like the Desire HD's new CPU & GPU are holding up. Good quadrant scores here.

    Anyone know if it's possible to get an Mkv player on Android market.

    I think RockPlayer plays mkv files? If you have a look through Jimmy's posts in this thread you might be able to find it. :creep:

    Yo, everything's so good! I think the initial fervour has died down, now that I've got things just the way I want them, more or less.

    I'm trying Grooveshark atm, but it's really buggy and the audio quality's not great. I just want 'free' music :emo:

    Yeah you can get APKs, see Jimmy's posts!

    A couple of pages back, I think.

    Grooveshark :bigsmile: It's like Spotify Mobile. But cheaper.

    HTC Desire HD is still out on Vodafone on October 14th. It's only the SIM free handset that has been pushed back.
