How to do a factory reset without losing applications/settings?
Since updating to Froyo on my Droid X, I've noticed my camera's autofocus won't work at all. I first noticed this because the barcode scanner can't read bar codes anymore because they are too blurry. I want to try a factory wipe to see if that fixes it. I just did a factory wipe 2 weeks ago and it erased all of my applications and settings and was a huge pain to reinstall everything. Is there a way to backup these apps, so I can just automatically re-download them after I do the wipe? Thanks for any help.

I never even considered that one of the apps could affect the camera. Where do I find instructions for sending them to my SD card? I don't mind downloading them all again. I just don't want to have to recreate all my home screens and icons. Will i have to do that?

If you are rooted, Titanium Backup has an option to backup files and settings. Thing is, if this is done, a factory reset is execute and you restore the files, are you not back in the same sinking ship?EVO & an Acer A500 tablet.
