I'm currently using Nikez Lente's ICS rom 1.0.1a9 and what is the system app name for the phone's homescreen where all my apps, widgets are currently stored. I'm a bit of a flash freak so every now and then I drag my at least 40-50 apps one by one.
So I backuped all my system data and apps with titanium backup and now installed different ROM, and when I try to restore missing apps and data it asks for approval for every single app I had installed. I need to press "install" and then "done" for each app, and not only that, if I don't want to install and press cancel it stops working and I need to go to task manager, kill titanium backup and do everything again.. How to make that process automatic?
I've a problem that is recurrent in the Galaxy S forum... and maybe somewhere else!
When I do a backup with TB, it goes fine.
Then I flash a new rom, restore with TB. When app is restored, everything's fine, but when I restore data, every app is force closing... This is really annoying if I want to get back my apps settings...
I was hoping someone could assist me. I have paid for and installed Titanium Backup, but can't seem to locate it on my phone, in the apps list or elsewhere to actually run the application. It is hiding from me. In the settings, applications, i can see it and see program details, but as far as a program exe i cant find how to actually start the program.
I flashed to the Cognition Froyo, phone is rooted. Installed Titanium Backup but can't find the icon anywhere. It says installed but nowhere to be found. I've uninstalled and installed again. Also restarted and no luck...
When i click on batch, then run to backup my apps it jumps back to the Backup/Restore screen with all the apps, nothing gets backed up. I have backed up before with Titanium and it worked. I reinstalled Busybox, didn't help. If i uninstall and reinstall will i lose all the things i did like freeze apps etc ? When i try to update through the marketplace it says installation error, package file was not signed correctly.
I backed up all apps and data then I uninstalled a few of them. Now I went to reinstall them and Titanium Back up says batch restore finished but the apps are not there. They are in the TB folder on the sd card but the app is not in the app list. How do I get them back? I did do a nandroid back up immediately after rooting will that restore them?

I was looking for an application that would allow me to:
1)Migrate to another phone easily. 2)Backup my applications (with ease) 3)Backup my DATA (with ease)
After some playing around with the market of available applications to backup applications/data, I found some very interesting applications which allowed scheduled backups (which I believe is a must have..) well thats my opinion anyway but out of all the applications I tried, titanium was the only application which after restoring the applications, also restored the links into the marketplace under downloads which allowed me to then receive further updates in the future..! Most backup applications will restore the application, no problem, but what about future updates? You WONT get them.!
Just recently, the developer of Titanium released the market doctor feature (only for donate users) which will attempt to fix any applications that dont show up in the marketplace after a restore (before this feature you had to restore, sometimes twice before it would show up) GREAT WORK !
I am abit (personally) disappointed with the GUI of titanium I believe that it should have an option (wizard) when you first startup the application which asks you, are you an advanced user or beginner, and if youre a beginner it shouldnt show you all the advanced information (that half the people wont understand anyway)
What Id like to see added?
1)beginner / advanced view of home page 2)shortcut options (or widget to run defined backup) 3)Scheduled backups 4)Backup of (SMS, call logs, bookmarks, system settings?) 5)Option to move most recent backup to remote location (i.e. network share over wifi, ftp over data etc)
Many people recommend a complete data wipe between flashing roms, and i assume the preferred method of backing up all the apps/data is titanium. my first question is, when restoring all backups is there a way to not have to press "install" then "done" for every app it's restoring? like a fully automated process?
I have 73 visual voicemails on my Evo right now. If I backup the stock voicemail program with Titanium Backup will I be able to restore them all after wiping all data and/or installing a different ROM (as well as Sprint VVM)? If not, is there another way to backup the downloaded voicemails on the phone, i.e. not emailing them to myself?
I have the root app Titanium Backup. When I root my friends' phones, I like giving them all my root apps with a quick transfer of my SD card app backups from AppControl.
BUT, I have never been able to find the backup file for Titanium Backup. I realize they can just download it from the Market, but where I work I get no service so I can't download it for hours for them.
Does AppControl or even Titanium Backup itself actually back up Titanium Backup? It seems almost like they skip over the APK because I can never find any backed up APK files that have the words "Titanium" or "Backup" in it. I've never been able to find the file!
From what I have read it is already possible to do so. ADB offers some commands to backup your whole internal disk directly to PC. Also there is a way to do so via fastboot. Thats both very nice but I would like to go one step further. I put many trust in backups like cwm or twrp. currently I'm using TWRP on my N4. The tools works just fine!!
I have around 13.8 GB of capacity overall! One backup made by TWRP takes about 1.5 GB. But thats only because the compression works this well. To get it the backup process started I need to free about 2.8 GB. Thats over 30% of my storage. Another point is that to have a proper backup I have to copy the backup to another storage eg my PC. So I was thinking:
Why can't we made this superb backups (compatible to CWM and TWRP) directly to PC?
I have a really odd problem recently i rooted my phone (sgs4) and used TWRP (and later CWM) to make a backup of my system via recovery. However, at one point the backup failed due to insufficient space on my internal card, and now the phone keeps warning me that the phone is full. However - and here's my stupid problem - I don't remember which of the two backup programs I used when this happened, and however I search the card (using Root explorer) I'm unable to find ANY folder named backup, twrp, clockworkmod or anything comparable. Now, the files MUST be on the card somewhere, considering used storage jumped with about 4,5gb. before and after this incident. Where such files might be hidden?
I am running the latest nightly CM11 on my LG G Pad 8.3 V500 and have the latest TWRP installed.
I was experimenting with a stupid app called LCDDensity for root and it caused my G Pad to be stuck in a bootloop. I was able to boot into TWRP and the first thing I did was to make a complete backup. I then tried to wipe cache and dalvik cache but the device was still stuck in the bootloop. This was the point were I did not know what elso to do and so I wiped everything and installed the latest nightly (I was running a previous version when the bootloop happened). Everything is working again and I am on the latest version now, but all my data is gone of course.
My Questions are:
If I restore the backup I made when the device was stuck in the bootloop, will this then cause a bootloop again, or can I savely restore the backup? I don't know if that makes any sense, but I am afraid to restore corrupt data somehow. What else could I have done to get the device to boot up again?
I have a question regarding restoring data after flashing to a new ROM (Bugless Beast) via a nandroid backup. I know I have the update.zip option, but that seems to introduce issues for some that I want to avoid.Now, I know I have a few options. I can batch backup apps and data with Titanium Backup, then wipe, install the new build, and then restore via Titanium. Or, I can do a nandroid backup of my phone, wipe, install the new build, and then restore only the data partition of my first backup.My question is, are either of these methods any different from just using the update.zip version of BB? For example, when I upgraded from BB .7.8 to 1.0, I lost root and had to do a full wipe and I just manually reinstalled everything. Will doing the data partition restore or titanium backup restore result in the same issues?
