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.

HTC Incredible :: Installing Roms And Doing Data Wipes?

Sep 23, 2010

I just rooted my phone and I'm not in the know with how to install roms, however most of the rom sites indicate how to install. Most of the roms I've visited recommend doing a data wipe and a cache wipe. Is this something I have to do every time I want to install a rom? I just did a factory reset for the 2.2 OTA and, quite frankly, it was a pain in the butt to get my phone back to how I had it.So, am I going to have to do a factory reset every time i want to try a rom?

Motorola Droid :: Rooting And Installing Custom Roms

Aug 27, 2010

I have been messing around with rooting and installing custom roms then going stock messing with settings then going to another to see how I like it. In the past, after I flashed a stock .sbf file I would be prompted for the Froyo OTA update. I just did it again last night. I was wondering, can you flash your phone too many times where you start to cause problems? And, does Verizon keep a check on how many times you've downloaded an update? Or, is it just not popping up because FRG22D is out?

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 :: Installing Custom ROM And Nandroid Backup

Mar 9, 2010

I am a Hero user, So sorry I do not know all so much about the Driod. But I am working of a friends phone and want to install a custom ROM. Thinking of going with this one.
[ROM] 2.1 ESE53 - DesireRemix v0.1 - Overclocked Kernel

But I cannot find nandroid back up like I have on my phone when I boot in to recovery mode? I want to make a backup just in case, Plus On that site it says
"Install by copying the BDS-20100308-1659 to your SD cards Nandroid folder"
So I guess I need the nandroid folder.

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.

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?

Motorola Droid :: Data And Cache Wipe Before Installing Rom

Oct 6, 2010

I'm considering installing a rom and I've heard that doing a data and cache wipe is the proper thing to do to ensure success. What I'm concerned about is how easy it is to restore/re-do all of your settings like ringtones, notification settings, app settings etc. How long does it usually take you to set up your phone again after installing the new rom?

Motorola Droid :: Restoring Data / Nandroid Vs Titanium Backup

Feb 23, 2010

I have a question regarding restoring data after flashing to a new ROM (Bugless Beast) via a nandroid backup. I know I have the 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 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?

Motorola Droid :: Do I Have To Wipe Cache - Data Before I Flash My Nandroid Backup

Sep 17, 2010

I have installed UD8 for about a week now. But ever since I have flashed some kernels (slayers 1100lv, chevys 1100 lv, p31200) I have not had the stability nor the quickness that the original 800 stock kernel gave.

I made a nandroid backup b4 flashing those my question is this: Do i have to wipe cache/data before i flash my nandroid backup? Or can i just flash it w/o doing any extra steps?

Motorola Droid : Complete Guide To Backup / All Of My Apps - System Data

Jul 2, 2010

I run the risk of getting flamed for this... but I deem it a worthy thread, as things are constantly changing. I haven't found an up-to-date thread that has satisfied me yet.

I recently joined the Android community with my purchase of the Moto Droid. After a few days, I became interested in the rooting process and gave it a go... upgrading to Froyo. There have been several ROMs I've tried out, but I'm very hesitant to try more due to backups.

Will somebody provide me (in words or a link) the best way to backup all of my applications and data when testing out a new ROM? I tried Titanium Backup (and even donated), yet I never have successfully restored from a backup. Some applications and system data restore, but a ton of apps don't install, and I have to re-enter my email accounts (and appropriate sync settings) every time. This and the number of apps it doesn't restore (especially Swype) makes it not worth messing around with.

I read something about Nandroid backup, but that just looked like it was a backup in case something went terribly wrong with a ROM or something of the sort. Also, it looked like in the Simply Stunning (ChevyNo1) 4.2, there was a built in backup script... but I'd like to be able to venture between ROMs.

I want to be able to backup all of my apps and system data (gmail accounts, sms, etc), install a new ROM, and reload all of my apps and data.

Motorola Droid :: Titanium Backup - Move Apps Data To Sdcard To Save Some Space

Sep 2, 2010

I used the option in batching Titanium Backup to move apps and data to my sdcard to save some space. I've decided I want to move it back so that it's available when I press the Launcher. I know where it's stored on the sdcard and I have root explorer, but I'm just not sure which folder to move it back to in the first place. which folder houses all the apps that are currently available via the Launcher?

HTC Incredible :: 2.1 - Procedure For Installing Roms?

Aug 7, 2010

My Incredible is Ver. 2.1 and radio 1, what is the procedure for installing roms? Can I just install any 2.2 rom right away or do I need to find a 2.1 somewhere then upgrade? Sorry, I just don't understand and I've been reading up on this for a few days. I think I understand that the Incredible will release a 2.2 update soon, do I need to wait for that. In my adventures so far, I've been able to pretty much master backing up my phone as I've had to restore it several times now.

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 Incredible :: Installing Custom Roms / Rooting

Sep 27, 2010

I have been using the INC for about 2 months now and i really do like the phone. As all of you know, the battery sucks. I picked up the 1500 battery about the same time the 2.2 came out and the battery life dropped over the 2.1/stocker. I thought it may have been the battery so i used the stock 1300 for a while and it was TERRIBLE. To add to the issue, the battery takes longer to charge then it does die. And thats why i am posting this. Could someone give me a list of what i need to do while rooting my phone and installing custom roms? that will speed up charge time? Normally i wont ask for help like this but i have zero time to sit down and read about everything. Just looking for a simple fix to get me by for the next few months.
