AnonD-1894, 18 Jan 2012Hey Anthony.. :)
Can u pls brief abt the usage of PIM backup. I wil be mvng home soon, so hav... morePIM backup
PIM backup does not need to be installed it runs from where ever you copy the file (so make a folder for it so your multiple backups will be in one place.
When you run it you pick from “Action” if you want to Backup or “Restore”
And you check the items you want to “backup” or “restore”
Some items activate the “Options” key to the left.
On the NEXT page
You pick where you want your backups kept (it would be best set it for a location on your SD card)
Check it “as Default backup folder”
Better yet just check everything in that window.
Pick “schedule” and set your backup days, time & number of backups to keep.
Also check “Turn off after backup” & “Delete old backup files”
One you do that tap “Validate”
Once it goes back to the next screen tap on “options” on the right,
Then pick Schedule>load Schedule
Hit next and watch the backup or restore be made.
After that backups should be made based on the schedule you made.
When you want to restore run the program again. Browse for the restore file you want to restore and run it.
Note: you can restore part of the file you don’t have to restore the full thing, just uncheck the things you don’t want to restore.
There is more it can do but i can’t go into everything. But the pictures on the web site will give you some ideas.

If you are a user of the digital compass and now you have upgraded to the 3.14ROM you would have noticed a lot of it functionally has been removed, which allowed you to use it with the album, Google maps and footprints. The link below gives you a version that gives you back google maps use with the digital compass.

As you tried to install ICS on your phone that had a 3.14 ROM it is recommended that you do I factory reset. Because some of your files may have been corrupted.
Hold both volume up and down when turning on the phone to get the factory rest screen.
Install a program call PIM backup
And set a schedule for it to backup your contacts, task, sms, calendar and so on. To you SD.
So you can restore the info when ever you do a factory reset.

Under install is says is needs to be in an ICS folder.
But the bigger problem is ICS ROMs look like they need MAGLDER to be installed on your phone.
MAGLDER is not compatible with HSPL4, which is why I said you could not install NAND Android or WP7
And if you put on a lower version on HSPL, you will lose a portion of your ROM if you keep the 3.14 version of WM6.5
Lower versions of HSPL are made to work with ROMs up to 1.66
Your options are…
1. Look for a gingerbread SD Android ROM
2. change your windows ROM to a older version so you can use HSPL2 or 3
3. Get rid of windows all together and install a NAND Android ROM.

As a user that dose not have unlimited internet you should install program called “DATA CONTROLER” you can use it to turn off the parts of the SIM you don’t want the phone to use.

bih, 14 Jan 2012i want to know if change my windos to androd .can it cus anything to phoneyes!
it can cause your phone to look and run like it has Android on it. and if that freaks you out, all you have to remember is your windows ROM version, download it, and put it back on your phone.

Feel free to try and see if your can change the HSPL to the SPL and maintain that size. (let me know how that goes, check it after on the 4 colored bands screen to know that it changed)
I’m not a pro with android, so all I can do is get you started.
Blow is a link to Android ROMs.
The ones you want say “SD” as the ROM type:
(don’t ask me which is best because I don’t know, I have not tried all.)
1. Pick one you want to try and go to the XDA Thread to download it to your PC.
2. use 7zip to extract the files/folders.
3. Locate the folder with the name “Android” and copy it and it’s contents to the root of your SD card. (Do not copy the folders that the “Android” folder is in)
4. From explorer on your phone open the folder
5. run CLRCAD (nothing will happen that you can see but you have to run it)
6. run HARET
Android set-up will start (the first time can take as much as 15-20min) you must complete the setup or it will take just as long the next time.
Note: unlike windows mobile you actually have to use the hardware keys (the back key is to go back, there is no “X” and the window key is “menu”
To get back into windows just restart the phone.
To get back into Android run the 2 files again.
I will post some windows tips for you tomorrow.
