Motorola Droid :: How To Backup Settings With Restorability To Different ROMS

Apr 26, 2010

Thinking about switching to BB from Ultimate Droid v10. That being said, anytime I do this, I backup the ROM entirely through SPRecovery. I've used Titanium Backup, MyBackup Pro, etc., and I can't seem to restore the settings/apps whenever I switch to a different ROM. This makes the process entirely pointless to me, as I don't feel like setting up home screens/redoing all my settings each time I switch ROMs.

Titanium Backup likes to give me parse errors regardless of the level of compression that is set. MyBackup Pro reports a successful backup, but nothing is actually restored except apps (no app/system settings, no home screens, etc). I've heard that to make Titanium Backup work, you must set something in the shell but I have no idea how or what to put in there.

Motorola Droid :: Clean Up Settings In CM-based ROMs?

Apr 13, 2010

I'm sure there is no easy answer to this question.. but is there a way to remove the "HTC"-type settings in the CM-based ROMS(Koush/JRummy remix/ UD 10, etc.)? By these settings I mean the Trackball/Breathing light and similar. These ROMS would seem overall more Droid-oriented without these settings that are basically useless to us Deleting the HTC Copyright .apk seems easy enough..

Motorola Droid X :: Way To Backup Data Before Installing New Roms

Sep 30, 2010

So I'm wondering about the best way to backup apps and data before installing new roms since it usually involves a full system+data wipe. Right now I use Titanium Backup and then restore all user apps when I have the new Rom loaded. While this works pretty well, I still have to go back and change all my settings, set up my accounts, etc. Shouldn't there be some way to preserve this data? Also very frustrating is that I have to re add all my widgets in Launcherpro. Any way to get a real backup of that too? The process isn't too bad right now, but as more and more Roms come for the droid x, I'd rather not have to repeat the setup process every time.

Motorola Droid :: Good Program To Backup (apps, Files, Shortcuts, Bookmarks And Personal Settings)?

Nov 15, 2009

Is there a good program to backup your all your apps, files, shortcuts, bookmarks and personal settings. I know Astro has a "backup" function but I don't know what it actually backs up. I know you can back up your contacts Google.

I guess what I'm asking is if there's a way to "clone" your Droid, not just the SD card.

Motorola Droid :: 2.1 ROMs And 2.0.1 ROMs

Mar 7, 2010

Maybe i'm not really seeing anything that stick out to me but could someone please give me an answer.

Whats the difference between a 2.0.1 ROM and 2.1 ROM?

I've been rooted for awhile and always stuck with either AdamZ ROM or Pete's Bugless Beast and they were all based off of 2.0.1. Is there something special I need to do in order to run a ROM based off of 2.1?

HTC EVO 4G :: Backup / Restore When Flashing ROMs

Oct 19, 2010

Now that I'm fully rooted I'd like to experiment with a few different ROMs. My issue is: I'm a heavy user of Folder Organizer (great product). After I rooted initially, I flashed the Fresh 3.3 ROM after backing up using Titanium, Astro File Mgr, AND MyBackup Pro (I don't mess around). After I was done with the flash, I went to restore with Titanium. It didn't restore all of my apps, and actually not much of my data (for example, it didn't restore SMS for some reason). No worries: I went to my Astro backup, it got a few more of my apps, no data.

Finally, I turned to MyBackup Pro, fortunately it restored my SMS data. To wrap it up, I wound up having to restore a few apps from AppBrain, and I had to reset all the folders in Folder Organizer (a real pain). Is there a can't miss backup/restore process when flashing ROMs with Folder Organizer? I don't mind having to restore a few missed apps, but it takes hours to get the folders back. I'm also paranoid about the missind SMS data, but I think I have that covered.

Motorola Droid X :: Backup Of Titanium Backup APK

Sep 30, 2010

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!

Motorola Droid :: Data Backup - Not An App Backup

Feb 23, 2010

I DLed Titanium Backup, but it wasn't obtaining root access. I read here that I probably need to update to a newer version of BB. After a bit of a fight, I finally managed to get BB 0.4 onto my Droid. I figured I was safe b/c I have Lookout, which also backs up data. Yeah, it backs up contacts and pix, that's it. So here I am w/ a nice, shiny new rom, and a completely wiped phone.

Now, I know my old info is still there. I know I could just recover into my last version. But then I wouldn't be on this rom. Is there any way for me to get that info on here, or do I have to do everything manual? Or could I restore the old version, and not need to do a wipe when flashing the new rom?

Man, no matter what I good I start to feel about myself w/ what I've already learned from you guys, I'm quickly reminded that I'm barely scratching the surface.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Flashing ROMS - Nandroid Backup

Mar 31, 2010

About two days ago the DamageControl2.0r ROM started giving me the WiFi issues, and where I am with no EVDO or even E network. I rely on the WiFi at work and home, and wherever else I may need it. So I attempted to flash back to Fresh2.0c using the wipe/reboot and all the normal steps. Well it kept booting back to the Damage Control ROM. Someone suggested I use Nanroid backup then tried reflashing the rom. Which ended up working. Well I then decided I wanted to try the New Kitchen, because I love tinkering with this stuff, and it wouldn't flash again. I had to use Nandroid backup to go back to Fresh2.0c and have it working properly. Is there something I could be missing completely?

General :: Backup Apps And System Data On Roms Based On Stock ICS And Restore To JB

Oct 21, 2012

I'm looking for an backup application which will allow me to backup my apps and system data on roms based on stock ICS and restore to JB and vice versa.

Titanium backup does the job but after restoring on a new rom I get a lot of fc's and none of the apps works. I cannot restore call log and text messages, accounts, etc.

There's a lot of backup apps, I know. But I would like to be sure that they work as they should. Any app which will do the job?

HTC Desire :: How To Backup Settings For Sd Card?

Jul 11, 2010

I've downloaded firmware and backed up the data stored on the phone when prompted, now after the phone restarted I saw that the main screen is set to a default HTC one, I had my own profile saved onto the phone but I cannot find it after the firmware update. Can you manually backup data form the sd card? Or is it just a normal thing that the update deletes your own main screen setting even if it's saved in the profiles section. I must say I'm quite annoyed with it.

HTC Hero :: Backup Settings Before Installing ROM

Sep 12, 2009

HTC recommend a backup before installing a ROM. Is there a HTC backup tool? I know my Google account is online so I'm not worried about contacts and address book but what about the settings?
Android market? Will all my paid for apps still be available to me after update? Are all my installed apps memorized by the market? So finally what's the difference between Mybackup and Sprite backup or is there a better one that someone wants to recommend? My phone is not rooted and its not something I want to try at the moment.

General :: Backup And Restore Phone Settings?

Oct 5, 2011

My wife's Droid 2 recently began to behave badly and make a gear-like squealing sound intermittently during some phone calls. Sometimes one a day -- sometimes every call. When it happened she could always hear it - sometimes the other partly could hear it. The phone is 11 months old and still on warranted.

I took it to the Verizon store and they insisted that they must do a "return to factory setting" and re-setup the phone to see if this fixes the problem. "It will only take 15 minutes" they said. Of course, after those 15 minutes I spent the next 4 hours trying to get it to stop yelling "Droid" at my wife every few minutes when an email, sms, phone call, usb connection etc. happened. I then realized that what I really needed was an application that saved and could restore the phone's basic settings and those of the important apps.

When I looked at the Market and App-Brain I couldn't find such an app. Without root-ing and using Titanium is there such an app that can restore the hundreds of settings that you might have tweaked?

Samsung Vibrant :: Backup - Restore All Apps And Settings

Sep 1, 2010

The micro usb port on my phone has gotten loose over the last few days, and so T-mo is sending me out a replacement phone. I would like to completely backup my phone (ideally to my dropbox folder) so I can easily restore all of my apps and settings on the new vibrant when it comes. I already have Astro, and have backed up my apps to my SD card. But I would like something more comprehensive, say the way Blackberry Desktop software can do a complete back up from one phone and restore it all to a different phone. What backup apps do you use?

Jelly Bean :: Backup All Settings (especially App Folders) Without Rooting?

Feb 28, 2014

app that does a complete backup of my device (Note 3) that will restore all settings including the app folders that I have created. I have used Samsung Kies, but that does not restore my app folders. I have spent a lot of time setting up my apps into folders, but there is no app that I can find that will restore app folders. Many of the apps say the restore system settings, but it doesn't appear to me that those settings include the app folders. Coming from an iPhone, this is the biggest frustration that I have so far with my device. iCloud will restore all settings so that a new device is exactly the same as the one it's replacing.

General :: How Google Backup Data In Settings Works

Feb 2, 2014

When I had my iPhone, I can do iTunes backup to my Mac and when I have a new iPhone, I can do restore of the apps and data from the previous iPhone. It restore everything, including apps, the apps data, email configuration, etc.

For Android, there is "Backup My Data" under Settings --> Accounts. Does this do the same thing as the above?

For example, I tried to do this:
1). Check "Backup My Data"
2). Associate this with one of my Gmail account
3). Get a new Android phone and... I don't see "Restore" in the same Settings.

I DO see the settings to Backup My Data in the new Android phone, but I am afraid if I checked this, it will overwrite the data in Google's server

I am trying to figure out if Backup My Data can re-download all the apps installed in the older device, including the apps data. I don't care about email or contacts, since those are synced to my Gmail accounts.

General :: How To Backup Google Music Play Settings

Sep 10, 2012

How do I make a backup of my settings, or which file do I need to extract when I want to make a backup of google play?

Issue is the follwoing, As google music currently saves all the music in the Data folder on the Phone (at least in my Galaxy Nexus) and no longer on the sdcard, every time I flash a new rom or an updat I loose Google music. obviously that is not an issue as I can reinstall the app, however the files I want to have locally on the phone need to be re-downloaded. the issue is that with the new install these settings have been lost, and I need to go back in the app and mark every file to be stored offline again from scratch.

I have also tried bracking up via Ti backup, however that leads into bigger problems as after restoring the app gets reset everytime I reboot....

Motorola Droid :: Too Many ROMS

Jun 13, 2010

I've had my Droid since February and have it rooted. I've been using Smoked Glass v6.0.1 ROM and now I'm ready to change things up. I have ROM manager premium but I'm too overwhelmed by all the choices. I've been trying to research the different ROMs out there but there are too many.

Can we make a list here of what ROMs do what? For instance I've read Bugless Beast is great for speed but Ultimate Droid is better if you want looks and don't care about speed. Don't even get me started on CyanogenMod. There are way to many options with that one.

Motorola Droid :: Roms

Mar 22, 2010

In here you can put what rom you are running and all the info, OC range kernels all that, and a screen shot of the main home screen. and you can discuss on which one is better. what one has that the other doesn't and etc.... i like talking about all that for some reason.

I'm running CYANOGEN MOD 5.0.5 W/ 24K THEME AND OC RANGE OF 1000-800MHZ. I have in the past run simmply stunning and smoked glass and droid mod and the desire build roms. i find cyanogen to be the smoothest and most customizable to me. I also like the updater its all very easy to use.
cons: i dont like clockwork recovery, im use to SPRecovery.

All in all CYANOGEN MOD IS THE BEST TO ME.
