So I screwed up and lost the passphrase for TB encryption. I have a good working android backup with all the apps+data that I would want to use for my next rom flash. The problem is when I go to TB and disable encryption on my good backup it doesn't allow me to restore the data when I flash a new rom. is there a way to completely remove TB and all of it's app data so that I can start from scratch with TB in order to good unencrypted backups of my apps+data without completely formatting my SD card? I'm stuck on my current rom setup.
I recently clicked on a pop up on my phone it asked me if i wanted home or sense to be my default, so i clicked home but i have lost four of my screens and everything is different can anyone tell me how to get it back to the way it was without loosing anything.
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!
I finally got around to getting 2.2 (after having to watch my phone in a bootloop all day since i was in meetings all day). i kept root. all of my other root apps work (shoot me, root explorer, autokiller, etc...) except titanium backup. ti backup says it cant verify root. everything is running like a top, except the one app i REALLY wanna get up and running. anyone come across this or have any ideas? i'm sure its something really simple i'm not thinking of.
Well first of all I jumped in and deodexed and themed my phone before I did a backup, is there any way to undo it? How many backups can you have with titanium, as many as you want? why do people "freeze" the backups?
OK so before i switched roms i didnt back up my apps to titanium. so my ? is how can i get all my apps back if its possible? should they be backed up some other way i dont know about that i can get them back?
I was using Fab's NexTheme R2 and updated to R3 without formatting and figured it would be fine, and it was for a while but then started to get laggy. So I decided to backup my apps with titanium and update to R3 from fresh, formatting DATA, SYSTEM, and CACHE.
Well when I restored my apps not all of them did. So I verified my backups and there were errors. Luckily I had an R2 nandroid backup so I went to that and updated to R3 again as before.
But I would still like to install R3 fresh but every time I run Titanium Backup and then verify my apps they all or most atleast come up saying there was an error. I clicked the "problems?" button and busybox should be ok so idk what to do.
Which backup method is better Nandroid or Titanium backup? I was following a guide for Nandroid but when I use DroidRootTools and try and download the tools I get an error saying the file type is not supported. So I get Titanium Backup. Which one is better? Should I try and find a way to setup Nandroid?
Trying to learn all I can about the Rooted Droid. I've tried a couple of great ROMS, but each time I download and install a new one, I'm following the instructions and wiping everything. Although I thought I'd backed up appropriately with Titanium, my contacts always revert back to when I first bought the phone - they obviously didn't get backed up. Am I just missing something in Titanium, or is there a better way to save contacts and things like that? Also, are all of you literally starting from scratch each time you reboot with a new ROM - i.e. Are you literally having to start the "Welcome to the Droid", signin to Gmail, etc. screens or am I the only one?
I just flashed a cyanogen rom, and i'm trying to use Ti Backup to restore my apps and data. However, for every app that Ti backup attempts to installs, I have to confirm that I want to install the app, as if I was installing it from the market for the first time.
After performing a factory reset (which by the way did NOT require me to reactivate my phone, idk why) I reinstalled Tibu first to reinstall my apps and it tells me I have 0 backed up apps, even thought they are there on my sdcard in the TitaniumBackup folder.
So I did a batch backup with Titanium and when I went to restore on a new ROM I was trying (first time I'm trying this), when restoring all of the apps, it didn't do it automatically? Like I was reloading a bunch of apps, and it prompted me for EACH APP. Is there a way to just press restore on a batch I backed up, and it just puts everything on the phone that I selected? It took a long time sitting there and pressing ok after each app.
Running the OTA 2.2 and I am rooted. I use ADW with with the Sense skin. I am going to do a factory reset of my phone and want to return it to the state it is currently in including all apps, app info (like game saves, etc), contacts, text history, pictures, etc. What is the proper protocol to get my phone back to the state it is in now? I have taken screenshots of my 7 homecreens already. I do not want to lose any of my game save info (for tower raiders for instance) nor my text message history. Will TB back all that up and restore? Is it necessary to reformat the SD card also? And if so, should I make a separate backup of the SD card to my PC before reformatting it? ottom line: Does TB do a comprehensive enough backup to get my phone back to the state it is in now or are there other measures one should take before doing a factory reset.
I just flashed Pete's latest ESE53 BB and cannot restore any of my apps and data with Titanium Backup. I get the error "there is a problem parsing the data". I have already tried to chmod 755 /system/xbin/busybox and still no go. Does anyone have any ideas before I go back to my BB 0.7.8 nandroid backup?
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 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?
Can we download the text file from our email to our sd card while on the droid, because I am doing my damndest and cannot figure out a way to save it when on my phone...Do I have to use my PC and download it and connect my phone via usb to install it on sd card?
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?
