And I have tried various programs, some registry edits, hacks, etc - and I think I have settled on the configuration that I want.
During that time, i have installed and uninstalled quite a bit of software - some on the SD card and others into memory.
I think, at this point, what I woud like to do is clear storage (or is it hard reset - or are they the same thing?) and then reinstall the apps that I intend to use, making sure that I install things like Battery Saver and HTC_Home in memory, while installing less critical apps like Google Maps back onto the card.
I guess my question is - what, if anything, should I take care to back up - and what is the best way to do it?
It looks like my contacts and appointments will be restored when I reestablish my Exchange Server connection. I assume that anything which is already on the card is safe, but what about apps that are installed on the card - should they be uninstalled prior to the reset and then reinstalled?
I believe I have read that the PagePool hack will survive?
Any tips, tricks, advice that might help prevent this turning into an all-weekend project?
