    Just do restore all apps & data. I used it a lot when I had my Dinc. I actually had better luck with MyBackUp but TB should work. You may need to do some manual work after but it still saves a ton of work

    I did it by backing up all the apps I wanted. Then just copied over the titanium folder that it makes of the backups on the sdcard to my desktop. Then onced I got rooted installed titanium I placed the folder back in the sdcard and restored.

    I really couldn't tell you for sure how much or what. All I was really looking for was restoring my home screens. With that sad I don't recall having to reset any app settings when I used it and it differently restored some but like I said I didn't really look that hard so I can be specific..

    sorry

    If you get a new phone you can just swap the sdcard with the one you've been using.

    Well I just used it on my replacement DX and it worked like a charm. Only have to redo the widgets. Here what I did

    Swapped my sdcard to the new phone
    used Astro to install and run the root app I had on the sdcard
    once rooted
    reboot
    downloaded TB from market
    (Make sure to select"problems" button and let it download busy box, also make sure it it recognizes you license key)
    Restore "All apps and system data"
    Reboot as soon as TB is done
    Done!
    It looks just like before and has all my setting also (except widgets.)
