    Talking Backing up and selectively restoring?

    I am curious about what the best way is, to back up everything (all apps, data, etc.) from my phone, and if it's possible to selectively restore certain apps and data back to the phone. I have a second-hand Captivate which is still running 2.1 (eclair) firmware, and the previous owner put a picture on the phone as a wallpaper, and I'd like to perform a factory data reset, and still be able to get the apps and data and everything back afterwards.

    I rooted the phone already, so I should be able to do anything necessary with the phone to back it up. I looked around through the forums, but the more I search, the more confused I get about how to perform a backup of everything on the phone.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Check out Titanium Backup, you can find it in the market.

    I'll look into that, ninja. Thanks. But what's all this I hear about a NANDROID backup? (not sure if it's supposed to be all caps. lol)

    nandroid can be done if you use CWM recovery. If you already flashed that you can use that as well. It backs up the ENTIRE phone and you have a choice later to either restore everything or restore certain things like /data/ or /system/... etc...

    Just go into recover and select backup and restore and then select backup.
