New to rooting and custom roms so apologies for the noob-ness of the question. Background first: Moto Droid 1, MIUI 188.8.131.52, ROM manager 184.108.40.206 When I am updating to a new weekly build (I ALWAYS backup the current rom first), I select the rom in ROM Manager and select the 'wipe dalvik cache' usually. I installed MIUI 1.6.3 and it had some problems (slowness, FC's, etc.). I restored the previous rom and went back into ROM Manager, selected the 1.6.3 rom and this time selected 'wipe data and cache' and 'wipe dalvik cache'. This time everything worked perfectly, but all my apps were gone. Is there a way to restore app settings after a 'wipe data and cache' rom install? I don't mind having to reinstall my apps, but then having to completely reconfigure them all is a real pain. Anyone have advice on making a full cache and data wipe slightly less painful? Thanks!
