HTC Dream (T-Mobile G1)

I'm having a couple of issues here.

1- I have to re-flash my ROM. I can do that with nandroid but when I want to re-load my contacts the only way I can get them back (that I know of) is do a restore from a backup. That puts me right back where I was, with a damaged ROM.

1.1- Is there anything I can use to do the backup that will allow me to re-load only my contacts onto a new ROM? Perhaps some way of exporting the contacts file, editing it in a spread sheet (or some such) and re-loading it into a new ROM after the flash?

2- I had a copy of ROM Manager in my phone. It's gone somewhere. I'd like to get another copy but it seems to have vanished from the net. No link that I can find (no, not on Market or AppBrain) will actually point to the app. It only gets the licence add on and I still have that on my phone.

Any assistance is appreciated.

If you have a recent version of Android, 2.2 or later then on your contacts screen press your menu button then import/export contacts. export the contacts to your sd card then on the new ROM import them from sd card

 

if that doesn't work there are a number of contact back up to check out such as these two though there are more of them

bdfull3r,

Thank you for your reply.

I did look at the apps that you mentioned. It looks like the import of the data from both apps is problematical. Do you have any thoughts on this?

 

I have realized that I left out quite a bit of information in my request for assistance. Thngs like the specs on what I'm running. Here they are.

 

Model Number: T-Mobile G1 (Rooted and flashed)

Firmware Version: 1.6

Baseband Version: 62.505.20.17U_2.22.19.26I

Kernel Version: 2.6.29.6-SuperD [email protected] )

Mod Version: Super D 1.10.4

Build Number: Super D

 

I hope this will make it easier for you good folks to advise me.

Again, thank you.

bdfull3r,

Again, thank you.

I installed Mobile Backup ll and it worked. Thank you.

Due to my own incompetance, I now have duplicates of every contact in my list. Any idea how to get rid of duplicates? I can't seem to find any step by step on the net. The trick with Google Chrome dsoesn't seem to have worked.

Is there a way to export the file to a spreadsheet, edit it, and then recover it from the edited file?

Again, thank you for your help.

Again, thank you for your reply.

I did find a way to delete individual contacts. It's cumbersom but it works. From the contacts list, select a contact, hit the menue button and the delete is right there. I'm still trying to find a way to select several contacts at a time for deletion.

On another note: I've flashed in the Cyanogen version 5 ROM for this phone, but the Super D 1.6 from ClockworkMod works better so I flashed it back in. I'd like to try some others from ClockwrkMod but my phone has lost the ROM Manager APK. I have the APK on my computer (yes, I did find it) but when I use the App Installer I get a parsing error. The ClockworkMod site doesn"t have any "contact us " data so I'm going to start a new thread on here in hopes that someone can help me with this parsing error problem.

Thanks again for all of your help.
