I've got TB pro, so i did a batch backup and decided before i flash any new roms again, that TB is working.Backing up completes fine.But it won't restore apps.I updated to the latest TB pro, cleared my data and set app processing mode to AUTO, Indirect.
Trying to restore data from XML. I made SMS & MMS, call log, and Wi-Fi access points XML backups on stock Android 4.1(VZW) and now I am on AOKP toro JB build 4 trying to restore them and all I get is force closes as soon as I select the file to restore from.
I just rooted my HTC Evo 3d GSM. I have downloaded many games such as Gameloft etc.But now I am going to install a custom rom for my device. Android 4.3....And so I have game progress saved in my games. I have heard that if you are backing up using Titanium Backup and restore into a custom rom do not install settings.I mean what does it mean? full guide starting from backing up data and restoring them to a custom rom device! (with pictures only if you can)
Lately, it seems that batch restore is broken again on Titanium Backup 4.8. Did a reflash of my friend's phone and using the bath restore function, it wouldn't restore anything and the loading bar would load forever. Restore each app one by one didn't work as well. It was broken in 4.7.X as well for me.
I've created a backup called "app +data (easy import)". Now I can't find any option to restore an app from this backup. Not from dropbox nor from a titanium backup folder. Titanium does not see this file and says there is no backup for that app. So how to restore an app from this kind of backup??
I backed up all the system and user apps before installing the custom ROM CynaogenMod 10. I restored the user apps and it worked fine. Then I tried restoring the system apps and I had to choose to restore from either XML or system image. I chose system image, rebooted and the phone kept restarting. I then tried using the XML file to restore system files. Again the same problem; the phone kept restarting.
Out of the backed up system files, the most important one for me is the contacts. Is there any way I can restore only the contacts. I have the following files in the backup folder pertaining to contacts.
I just flashed a new ROM on my phone but when I tried to restore my apps with Titanium, only 1 app is showing. A few days ago I had also made a copy of the Titanium Backup folder in my computer but I don't know how to (if) I can restore my apps with only the folder.
I've noticed whenever I use a new ROM and restore from a update.zip (with all apps, data..etc) there are a few problems...
1) Applications restore correctly, but Accounts, Wi-Fi Access points...etc do not... I have to boot into the ROM and restore them via TitaniumBackup.
2) Restored applications work, but some don't start on Launch like Whatsapp, Viber, Facebook, Facebook Messenger but applications like Dropbox, Skype (autorunner), GMail, Yahoo Mail do and every single one of these apps has been ran once manually. If I used Xposed and "Bootmanager" I can visually see that they should run on launch as it says they are going to however they don't. The only way I can get them to run at launch is to uninstal the application and reinstall it manually (thus losing my data for the app, as restoring the data only doesn't work).
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...
The ROM that I use on my phone pretty much discourages dirty flashing updates [CM10.1 based]. So for the last 10 or so updates, I have clean wiped my HTC Rezound, then restored from a TitaniumBackup.
First I disabled compression of backups.
Then to restore I go to /sdcard/TitaniumBackup/ and run a bash command:
# for i in *.apk; do pm install "$i"; done
Then I go to TitaniumBackup, and every app is installed but doesn't have my data. So then I batch restore my data for my apps [Pretty much only user apps, except a few system things like SMS, WiFi networks]. But the problem is, recently, TitaniumBackup will quit halfway through a batch restore of "Data only." So I've been manually restoring data 1 by 1 for the apps that I need data to be saved across rom updates.
But then I thought, "Hey, why can't I just backup my /data/data/ folder?" but then I also thought that would probably be like a dirty flash.
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.
Just was wondering, after updating a rom, or titanium backup restore of all your apps. Seems that they dont get set in the play store to "auto update", so usually I have to wind up doing it 1 by 1. Was there a way to mass set the auto update on all my apps? Cause the Play Store Settings, while set to auto update for new apps. Only will be applied on apps installed from play store, not from a restore from backup.
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 downloaded TB and backed up a few apps I plan to un install eventually. Before I did it though, I wanted to make sure I understood how to restore something in case I have problems. So I went to the TB folder on my SD Card and found where the backups were, but they are not saved as .apk files so how do you restore e-install them? I open the TB app and clicked on the backup e store button, but didn't see anything about restoring. All I see is buttons for backup, freeze and un install. Am I missing something obvious?
I backed up all my apps and user data just fine with it. I just installed a new rom and Restored all the data and it went fine, but I was curious about one thing.
I have 110 apps on my phone, not sure if thats a lot or not, but its a PITA sitting there and hitting "Install" then "Done" 90 times. Is there a way to have it just restore without asking? I understand this is easier than trying to download and install them all over again.
In the guide it is recommended we do a Titanium Backup, now that I come to restore a number of Apps/Functions won't come back but are ther in TB, do I have to buy the donate version to restore all my apps/Functions eg. FM Radio MMS etc.
How come there are certain apps that will not allow me to restore even though I have a valid backup for it. For example I have the HTC_IME with a valid backup but when I click in within TB my only option is to delete the backup file, no restore available. There are other apps like that as well.
I've been rooting my phone for about a month now, and I'm currently running Kangerade 5.0.9 (great job Jrummy) but I have a quick question about Titanium Backup. I have a feeling you will all be hesitant to answer, but Im going to ask anyway. Note I have no intentions of stealing here, Im just curious to see if this is a bug.
If I purchase a paid application from the market, back it up, and then refund the application, would titanium backup be able to restore it?
I am trying to batch restore all of my apps and it gets to about 4% and the phone restarts. I can not figure out why it is doing this. I have used it many many times before and never had had this problem. Though I know it did start when I loaded up CM6 and it also did the same thing. I am now back too BB .04 and it is doing the same thing. I assume it is some corrupted file somewhere?
What do I need to restore to put my Email account (exchange account) back on my phone via TiBu? Always just re-entered my account info, but wanted to try restoring it the last time I wiped, and could not get it to work. I restored "Accounts" and "Account and Sync Settings 2.2" and all my Gmail accounts are present, but when I launch the Email app or look at Settings>Accounts my Exchange Email account has not been restored. (I also restored Email 2.2 (only option was Data restore). This was going from one CM nightly to another, so I'm restoring data from two ROM s that are virtually the same. Any advice appreciated - I can add the Exchange Email account back manually, but wondered why I can't restore it. What am I missing?
Will titanium backup restore the market links with the apps so that I can still receive market updates?
I want to change ROMS without having to make a list of my current apps and reinstall each one. But I still want the ability to restore and get updates for all the apps I have.
And one other question, when I backup my apps, and then do a nandroid restore I assume Titanium backup will need to be reinstalled. Once I do this will I still be able to restore the apps from the SD card?
I have wiped data and restored my apps twice with Titanium so far. It all works well, but two minor problems. First, every time I do it all of my previous call logs, and all of my previous handcent text messages also get reset. Is there a way I can restore all of these as well?
Also is there a way I can restore my non-gmail email account so I do not have to go through the whole set up of putting in the incoming and outgoing settings all over again. It isn't a huge deal, but it does get annoying redoing the path, the port and the security every single time.
I might just not be doing the correct restore as I only do the batch restore missing apps with data and not all apps with data, but I do not know for sure.
