    I'm new to this and no expert, but I think that just happens when you flash a ROM. Supposedly you can use Titanium Backup to recover your apps and data, but the developers seem to say that's not such a good idea. I don't have that many apps, so it wasn't too bad to just download them again from the market. I did use an app to save my text messages.

    It's been a huge improvement having Serendipity on my phone, and well worth the price of losing my progress on Angry Birds.

    You should back up your apps with titanium, but after you flash a different rom, only restore apps, NOT system data.

    And, if your phone is running good, you should make a back up using Red CWM, before flashing a different Rom. If you have a custom kernel the you should haveRed CWM. Boot to recovery and choose back up.

    So I downloaded cwm-community-kernal-v8.zip (which shows up as SetupV1.exe on my internal SD card) and when I open SGS kernal flasher and tyr to flash it I get an error message that says the zImage file is not a valid kernal image and the kernal flash failed. Do I need to unzip it on the internal SD card?
    You downloaded the wrong file it should be listed as: cwm-community-kernal-v8.zip

    When you or the rom do a wipe from cwm, all user data is wiped.

    Love the rom but, I can't seem to get my contacts back. I backed them up in the stock contacts app as recomended. But when I try to restore them it says can't find vcard on sd.

    When you log back into Gmail on the phone your contacts should be restored, I have tested 6 diff ROMs and each time I log into the phone for gmail under settings/accounts all my contacts are fully restored.

    Can you access your external SD Card?

    The link for cwm-community-kernel-v8.zip is broken. It will not open the page and I cannot find it anywhere that actually works. If you could post a new place I could download it from or seed a torrent of it; it would be much appreciated. Thanks
