Motorola Droid X - Launcher Pro Suddenly Blowing Up After 2.2 Update / Need To Do A Factory Reset

Has anyone else been experiencing launcher pro force-closes and homescreen freezes after their 2. 2 update? Everything was working perfectly for me for a couple of hours and now it's all gone down the drain. I've done restarts and two battery pulls. I would get to the homescreen and then it would just freeze up and i couldn't do anything. Frustrating! Do i need to do a factory reset?

Issue: Apps Disappear From Sd Card, After I Factory Reset The Phone

Moved apps to sd card, did master reset, where did my apps go? I moved all my apps to my sd card by using my phone. I backed up all of my pictures and everything, and then did a factory reset on my phone. I plugged in my sd card expecting to see all of my apps that i had moved to my sd card (about 15 of them) and i can't find them anywhere. Anybody have any ideas? Of course, i can download all of my apps again, but some were paid apps, some from the amazon appstore. I have searched everything that i can think of, and haven't found any sort of answer. My phone is not rooted either.

Motorola Droid - Applications Redownloaded After Reset / Cause Of It

I've noticed that some applications are re-downloaded after both a factory reset and a hard reset. I've tried removing the applications prior to the reset, but this happens anyways, so i was wondering what could be the cause? It's not quite a big deal though, as i can always remove them after resetting the phone.

Motorola Droid - Apps Keep Reloading / Is This Normal - Should I Do A Reset

I've searched a bit on this forum but never found an answer to my issue, or perhaps didn't search the right thing.

The sales person loaded advanced task killer. I had multiple apps that ran in the background which i closed with the task killer. I set the phone down, 15 minutes later i picked it back up, opened the task killer again and there were multiple apps that had restarted such as "setting" "voice search" "corporate calendar" "browser" etc. I never started any apps after i killed them yet they restarted themselves.

So my question is, is this normal?  Or if not should i do a reset?  Or return to the store and replace? I just bought a few hours ago

Motorola Droid X - Use Univerisalandroot - How To Get Phone To Restore A Backup

This might seem dumb and noobish ( i am new to android, had dx for a month from a bb) but what are the best steps after i use univerisalandroot. I keep seeing it suggested to back up, but how is the best way to do that? Do you save a backup on the sd or on a pc? How do you get the phone to restore a backup? I think these are the questions that are holding me back from rooting but i might have others.

Motorola Droid X - Unable To Properly Backup And Install Roms / Way To Do

I'm reading and researching everything i can to figure out how to properly backup and install roms. Nothing that i have tried works. So far i am using rom manager and basically can't get it to do anything. I want to simply backup my current state, and flash cyanogen mod. When i reboot using home + power i don't see any options to backup, just the standard options to wipe, factory reset etc. Can anyone lend a helping hand, or point me in the right direction.

Motorola Milestone - Would Factory Resetting Lock It Again

Got a unlocked telus motorola milestone off ebay about 2 weeks ago. Been working on at&t and i loved it.

This morning. No data. It was just not working. Put the sim in another device, same drill. Got on chat with a at&t employee. No go.

Went to the local store, new sim, still no. Employees sim card. No. Finally we played with the apn settings and some mobile web sites kinda work using proxy settings, but not full ones. Basically. I'm screaming inside.

While troubleshooting this morning, i factory-reset my milestone. Would factory resetting "lock" it again? Or once you carrier unlock, is it unlocked for good?

Was just wondering if there was any possible way to reset the words the keyboard remembers? My girlfriend was using my phone to txt a friend last night, now when i try to type "in" it just comes up as "ib" i can always just hit the prediction words but that would be absolutely annoying to have to do that every time im typing the word. Also when i type "if" it always comes up as "id", thats been happening since i got the phone a month ago. Just the 1 has been annoying me for some time, and i can only imagine how bad it will be with 2. Please dont let these 2 tiny words ruin my txtng!

Samsung Epic 4g - Custom Theme - Back To Factory

Uninstalled the custom theme and the other progam that makes it run. That put it back to factory. Then i was doing other things and tried to go back to home, and it made me choose which action to take to get there. I chose "android" and told it to use this by default.

Well, apparently, this takes it back to like the vanilla android, i guess? I don't like it. That was half the reason i hated the custom theme because it ran things like vanilla andriod.

I must be the only person that prefers this, but please help me get back to factory.
