Hi everyone! I want to upgrade my rom (stock ICS) to CyanogenMod 10, but I have questions before I proceed:
- I've got the backups of my apps and settings in the original Huawei backup app. After upgrading the rom, Will I be able to restore everything or do I have to use another app, such as Mybackup root?
- Can I directly use the last nightly? or do I have to first use the stable release and then the last nightly?
Many thanks in advance!!
I'm not sure what you've currently got -- if you've got root access the following applies,
if not, some won't -- so ask for clarification
I've read your comments about Huawei backup BUT the following is what I'd do, overall the safest imo:
BUT first things first -- read the previous posts on this list -- You WON'T be able to use all the apps / features that came with the stock ROM -- look in particular for the previous posts about the lockscreen app -- the Lockscreen app in this ROM is part of the "framework", and so cannot be easily replaced -- without decompiling the ROM and virtually creating your own brand new one -- NOT something I'd recommend most people do ;-)
This is what I'd do -- to me it's the safest way of doing this, but many would miss one or more steps
RE -- THE BACKUP
first, download & install Titanium Backup Pro -- one of the few apps that truly deserve 5 star imo
second, download APN Backup and Restore from Playhttps://play.google....upRestore&hl=en
to ensure you've got the connection settings to re-connect to your network (I've never needed it, but just in case...)
third, backup your APN settings
fourth, backup any essential apps / data with Titanium Backup
fifth, perform a nandroid backup using the Recovery on your phone -- so if all goes wrong, you can re-boot into recovery and restore everything you had before
!!! You don't have to use the stable release, the nightly is very stable now !!!
you'll need to download from, say, Jenkins:http://jenkins.thebr...om/job/android/
after that you can use the nightly OTA procedures -- ENSURING you've got a GOOD, and STABLE wi-fi connection -- something which probably accounts for a LOT of the problems people report here
