    For all those out there that have spent time tweaking their home page; installing the apps they need; getting to level whatever on Angry Birds; or whatever it is you just don't want to lose when you flash your device, here is a tip....

    Install Titanium Backup and before you do your flashing be sure to do a full batch backup of all your apps and data. After flashing your nice clean ROM on your tablet, install Titanium again (although a lot of the ROMs have it cooked right in already) and you can then reinstall your apps, settings and app files (scores, levels, etc). It does then take you through each of the apps you had before and gives you the choice to put them back or not.

    Cheers,
    P

    You can sideload it.

    I also HIGHLY recommend dropping the $6 for the PRO version. It allows for batch restore (as opposed to one at a time) and you can set automatic backup days and amount of backups (for example you can keep up to x number of backups for a particular app.)
