Keep in mind as well any apps not restored will still show up in the app drawer and you'll need to manually remove those.

I think I get it
1. restore applications widgets
2 restored apex and apex settings\data
3. reboot tablet? ?
4. restored all of apps \data
5..reboot

am I correct?

Just a quick bump to let everyone know that I've moved these posts from the original [Guide] TitaniumBackup Tutorial thread over to this new thread.

Thanks!

From within the Apex Launcher settings, there's an option to backup and restore Apex settings and Apex Desktop Data. If you didn't do a backup of both of those from within Apex before you backed up with TiBu, then I don't think there's a way to restore those.

Restoring the desktop data from previous Apex backup settings doesn't work? Are you getting an error, or just nothing happens? Apologies for stating the obvious... but you do have the widgets installed that you are trying to restore, yes?

Could be a corrupt copy, or an issue with Apex itself. You might need to submit a support ticket with the Apex developer(s). In all honesty though, it would probably take you less time to manually recreate the widget setups.

Have you tried restoring "application widgets" in titanium backup?

I have never used TiBu and before I go through wiping everything to install the new ROM, I have a question about the restore process. In the guide it says:
Quote:
After the phone reboots, open TiBu again and go into the backup restore. Tap on Restore missing apps with data. Go down the list and untick any boxes for Google apps. If there are any apps that actively sync data often or create accounts in your phones settings area, you will need to untick those as well. Now tap on the green check-mark up top and let it restore your user apps.
What are the apps I need to untick in the process? Should I look at my settings and see which has created an account, like FB, Google, Dropbox? What about the syncing of data mentioned above - would K9 mail be part of this or no?

I've never had any probs restoring Dropbox, but I never restore Facebook. Facebook syncs a lot more data than Dropbox I would think. As for K9, I've not used that. However, my boyfriend uses Touchdown and Enhanced email for work, and I do restore those for him simply because of how many accounts he has set up in each of them. The only time I wouldn't is if the rom I was flashing for him was a major Android update (ie; from 4.1 to 4.2 where you wouldn't perform any restores), in which case I have him backup the emails he needs to save and have him do a fresh setup of those apps.

OK, so I won't restore FB. Since you say you restore other email apps, I'd probably put K9 in that same category. However, I will be going from 4.0.4 to 4.2.2. So, I guess you'd suggest doing email manually (which is no big deal really - I have 3 accounts setup, but all emails are stored on webmail and desktop too, so they're backed up.) I'm not sure what other apps I have that would fall into the category of syncing data, but those were the only ones I could think of.

Ah. Yes, I recommend no restores at all. Pain in the butt I know, but it's the best way to go about that kind of update to ensure you don't have any apps going all wonky. What I do under those circumstances is completely move (not copy) the entire TiBu folder over to my pc and begin an entire new set of backups after the flash.

One free app that I do use for backing up just the apps themselves (no settings whatsoever) is Android Assistant by Aaron. Under the tools menu is an option called App Backup and Restore. I put a tick in the box for all 3rd party apps (3rd party being apps that did not come with the phone) and back those up. After I flash, I download ES File Explorer, enable Unknown Sources in ANdroid settings (allows you to install apps from your SD), and then proceed to install my apps. After that I check for updates for those apps, then proceed to customize things to my liking.

Oh, so for this type of upgrade (a big one), you wouldn't use TiBu for the restore cause of potential issues. I'll look at Android Assistant and go from there.

Moving TiBu folder - is this in case I go back to my 4.0.4 ROM? If I'm using AA to make the backup and then installing from SD, I won't be using the TiBu backup. So that's the only reason I can think of moving the folder, is so that I can revert back if I'd like. Am I correct?

No apologies necessary. I'm super anal and follow instructions to the T. I just wanted to make sure I understood before I proceeded.

I recently moved from an LG Optimus Elite running 2.3.7 to a Nexus 4 running 4.2.2 and I used my backups from the elite on the nexus with no issues.

There are some apps I have found that do not restore well at all such as Waze or pocket frogs, but other than those I have all of my restored data on my nexus.

So when you used the TiBu from the Elite, how did you know that certain apps did not restore well? If I make a backup with TiBu and restore all the apps, what should I expect if something will not restore well?

I knew waze didnt restore from previous experience with the app and flashing roms. It would always try and load info from the net and just sit there. If i uninstalled it and downloaded it fresh it would connect to the net fine and do it's thing.

OK, I believe I followed the instructions correctly. I backed up everything as listed, installed new ROM, flashed TiBU zip and now I'm in the new ROM. I opened TiBu and my first question is that it is just the "free" version. I would assume it would have been the full version with the flash - is that not true?

I'm working on Restore missing apps with data. It is installing them one at a time. Is that correct? Again, I made an assumption - being the paid version it would install them all for me. Instead, I need to click Install and then click Done for each app. I have quite a few apps, so this is taking quite a bit of time. Is all of this correct, or did I miss a step with my backup/restore?

You've already signed into your Google account?

For me when installing titanium via Flashable zip, need to sign into Google then a reboot and it then should show up as pro without downloading the key again.

No I did not. The instructions say to install everything first and then create the Google account. So by following the instructions I was not able to log into the play store and get the key since the account was created last. Should the instructions be updated to say create a google account first, get the key, and then install everything?

Everyone has their own way of going about this, but for the full version, a sign in to Google is needed to link the key to titanium for license verification.

Did you back up both TiBu and it's Pro Key with Android Assistant? You want to make sure you reinstall both, otherwise you can only restore one app at a time since the batch options are only available with the paid version.

You can log in to the Google account, but you want to be very very careful not to allow it (Google) to restore anything. It's just easier and safer to log into it after you're all finished. Helps prevent an oops.

When you're installing and you get to the bits where it asks you about Google backing things up to it's servers and restoring make sure neither box is ticked, or you say no to both.

Nah. If it's backed up already on the SD then there is no need. When you get to the bits where TiBu asks to restore the previous device ID, that takes care of any verifications needed for paid apps.

For batch restores then, sign into google, grab key only (I'm guessing other apps won't start downloading automatically) and then use TiBu to restore.

Well, I know up above you suggested maybe trying AA, but I decided to give it a go with TiBu instead. So I was following your tutorial and backed up everything using TiBu Pro. However, when it came time for the restore, it mentioned to install everything first, then sign into google. Like I mentioned, I'm anal about following instructions, so that's what I did. I'm wondering if the guide should not be updated to say "sign into google play store and get the key only, while avoiding xyz" where xyz is whatever you think needs to be avoided with the google servers. I assumed that's the way to do it, but I try not to venture off the instructions my first time round. Now that I know a little more of what I'm doing, I don't mind being a little more daring.

I never got asked about previous device ID. I backed things up per the instructions (I believe) but I don't think the key was backed up to the card.

It won't always ask about the device ID, and it's ok if it doesn't.


Honestly I'm not sure why it only saved the free version. It should have saved things properly when you created the update zip.

One of the many reasons I use AA for backing up all my apps... just in case something goes wonky and does not work the way it should.

You can download the Pro key from the Play store. Not sure if they'll all start downloading or not... they shouldn't as long as you skipped that bit during the OS install. If for some reason they do, you should be able to stop the downloads.

OK, so normally, when creating the TiBu.zip file, the key should be a part of it? And if not, go into the play store, grab the key only and proceed?

1. backup apps and data with tb [copy it to pc]
2. make a backup applications widgets with tb [copy it to pc]
3. do singha_ROM_SuperWipe and flash rom
3. [copy tb folder to tablet ] restored missing apps and data with tb
4. make a backup apex settings and data
5. restored applications widgets with tb [copy it to tablet ]
6. restored apex settings and data [copy it to tablet ]

1. How does Titanium Backup make full ROM backup?

2. Can Titanium Backup have different numbers of backup for different apps? For example: I want to have up to ten backups for some games, but I only need one backup per app for everything else.

No for that you would use your custom recovery.

You can set the maximum number of backups, but it's a global variable.

You could of course copy older backups of some apps to another folder, so they won't be overwritten by the next backup. Or you can manually delete older backups of apps you only want one backup of (annoying if you have to do this for a lot of apps). But I don't see an option to set the max backup history differently for different apps.

Default Re: [App] [Support] Titanium Backup

Do you mean that the widgets don't restore themselves to the desktop and you have to replace them by hand, or that the apps themselves do not restore from the backup?

The first is completely normal. Any time you clear a launcher's settings and restore you have to replace the widgets (shortcuts should be ok). In my experience that's true if you use the launcher's own backup feature or Titanium. It's a feature of how widgets work.

A nandroid restore will replace everything, but that's different.

Well I've never ever known it work. May depend on android version though (mine's rather old), or the specific launcher - you're using the same one it worked with previously?

TB is strange on what it transfers and what it doesn't. One time it didn't transfer the paid keys to apps, I had to go get the keys again from Play. This time it transferred some databases for some apps and not for others. It did get all the paid keys.

I can't figure out where TB stored the info. I looked through everything on the phone with ES file explorer and couldn't find the lists. Yet they were stored in the backup I made of the Nexus S by direct TF to PC before I changed to the Nexus 4.

Titanium Backup's restore feature does not see all the apps in my backup.

I have a rooted Samsung Infuse with 2.6.35.7 (CyanogenMod) that I have backed up and synched to DropBox.

I am trying to copy my apps to my new rooted Samsung Galaxy Note II with Jelly Bean 4.1.1.

I copied all of the files in the Titanium Backukp folder on DropBox to the backup destination folder on my Note II.

When I try to restore them, very few are displayed in the selection box. I click the check mark at the top of the screen, scroll down to restore missing apps, and see what little is offered.

How do I get the apps from one phone to the other leaving out some I no longer use in the process?

Also, why zipsigner? Someone asked but withdrew their question. What role would it play in this process? ...and, yes, I have the paid version of TiBu.

I *believe* it's because some custom recoveries will not flash a zip that isn't signed.

I did determine that I could get what I needed by selecting backup/restore and selecting the apps I wanted in the list. One....at.....a......time....ugh. Some had several backups listed some that did not have a restore button.

Some could be restored with data, some only offered data, and others could not be restored but I got there.

Now I'll go back to just using it.

What is going on with TB? Got an error message today about not being able to get root access. Something about Superuser popped up on screen.

I have it scheduled for backup on Tues and Sat. There was some kind of update recently. Stuff OK before update. Got something called SuperSU that said update.
Where did that come from? Do I delete it? Is that malware?

AFAIK, the phone is still rooted, it still says 4.2 like it did when I rooted it. So something's screwy.

Please respond as I want my backups.

If SuperSU updated, you probably need to reassign permissions. Go to your app drawer, open up SuperSU and grant TiBU permission.

If Su or titanium backup are updated (or any app requiring root and you are using supersu) you have to reauthorize.
