    Default How Do I Get My Apps Back After Factory Reset?

    So I did a factory reset of my TB and now am wondering how I get all of my apps back? I hate to think that I will need to download them all over again.

    For future reference, you can use AppBrain and that will make it easier to reinstall everything. Or, ideally, you root and install Titanium Backup and it will reinstall all of them for you when you restore. That's the best bet AND the best backup utility.

    Your apps are backed up with the Gmail account you used to set up the phone. Go back into the market after setting up your phone and they will be under..my apps.
    Some of your free apps may not be listed.. for those you will have to search for them again. Paid apps will be listed.

    Look into an app called MyBackup Pro for backing up all your apps, home screens, bookmarks, sms messages, call logs, etc.. or even Astro File Manager lets you backup the apps apks.

    If your rooted.. you can backup apps + app data/settings.

    Two ways -
    1. Take a backup before resetting using apps like Titanium Backup.
    2. Go to your android market library from your PC which will show you a list of your previous apps. Just do a push of the apps you need and they will get automatically downloaded and installed to your Phone. See this for details -

    I had forgotten I had been told to go to the App Store. I was looking in my Gmail account! Thank you, Cyber Warrior
