Am presently updating the firmware on my HTC Dream.
Here's hoping I don't bugger it up utterly. *crosses fingers*
And that the backup software actually backed it up. *knocks on wood*
ETA: Setback: "30-day trial" of backup app would not run upon reboot. Apparently thinks it's expired. I installed it... this morning? o.O
Thought: fine, was going to buy it anyway, went and shelled out $5 USD for the download, and then the download froze and failed. Uh. Went to try again and was told the download link had expired. After being told it lasted 2 hours or 3 attempts? This was my second in twenty minutes. Have sent panicky/irritable e-mail to Rerware, but am not holding out hope for response before Monday. FAIL. Now have much zippier phone... with nothing on it. :(
ETA2: Ha ha ha! Downloaded trial version to my PC and uploaded it to my server, and back down to my phone. Restore app now working! Wow, had no idea I had that many SMS messages. Now scrolling through Restore 1988 of 2217. o.O
ETA3: Dur, I am stupid. Could have just downloaded a new file-browsing app and loaded it from the SD card. Sigh, it's good it's Friday. *headdesk*
Still restoring SMS...
