The Weekly Q&A: Week 13

The XDA News Writer team has selected five questions and answers found on the forums, some of them may not be of your interest but we are an almost 3 million members community and therefore, they may be of help for many others.

Q What happens if I update my phone? will I need to re-root it and get the ROM again? will all of my applications get erased? If so, is there a way around this?

A You will lose your root, but not apps if it is just an update.

Q Can anyone suggest a good program to backup and restore carrier specific settings, so that if I load a new ROM I can quickly port settings over?

A Look on the forums for application called APN Backup & Restore.

Q When we will get the first official WP7 ROM from hTC for the hd2?

A There wont be an official wp7 rom for the hd2. The HD7 is Microsofts and HTC’s way of giving you WPS7 on a comparable device. You either need to get a new device, or wait for devs to port it.

Q How to sync my Google contacts to my new HTC HD2?

A To set up Google Sync on your Windows Mobile device see the link below.

Q I have the original T-Mobile Dash(not 3g) and want to know if a 6.5 ROM can be loaded on it? I tried running the spl and hspl but neither worked. If you know please link a helpful thread or response here. Thanks.

A Yes it´s possible, have a look to this WM 6.5 ROM thread

If you have a specific question that you think it’s worth addressing in the Q&A, please PM any News Writer.

Thank you for reading

In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...

A Look at the Telegram+ Situation

Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels.
