A couple of weeks ago I took the plunge, rooting my 2.1 Droid following instructions posted at http://www.droid-life.com and then installing JRummy Remix V0.5 based on Cyanogen Mod 5.0.5.7. It worked fine, but then I wanted to migrate to JRummy Remix V0.7 (based on Cyanogen Mod 5.0.6.2). That didn’t work so well. The phone started rebooting randomly and increasingly often as the days went by. Last night I uninstalled some apps that were repeatedly crashing or that I wasn’t using (SportsTap, ShootMe) and then reinstalled the custom ROM – but this time I wiped cache and data first. Things seem to have stabilized since then.

Lesson Learned: Wipe data and cache before upgrading a ROM.

Question to Answer: How best to back up settings so I don’t have to re-enter them? Android does a great job of re-installing all of the apps I’ve downloaded from the Android Market, but re-entering all of my settings is a pain. Some apps let me back up settings (like Setting Profiles), but most do not. Is this something Titanium can help me with?
