    Hey guys,

    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.

    Weird question but I've never been able to find the file!

    In Astro's Backup it reports the file as com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup; however, the file doesn't show up in either Titanium Backup or Astro's backup folders on the SD card.

    Very interesting...

    Titanium Backup must be using a disguised name for it's apk file in the backup folders, because I have restored Titanium Backup using Astro's restore function in the past. but I used Astro to do it.

    Very interesting indeed.

    Any more info on this guys? How can we find this file and be able to transfer it around at will from SD card to SD card?

    Come to think of it, I feel like I never see Widget Locker's backup either, even though it restores as well. How about this one?

    I mean I am scrolling through AppControl's backup folder and I see no app names with any of the following words: "titanium, backup, widget, locker, teslacoil"...nothing!

    After digging around more... the com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup file size is listed as 867.80 Kilobytes. On the SD card in Astro's backup files, there is a file named pkg.apk that is the exact same file size. That is probably the Titanium Backup apk file. :)

    Yep, just confirmed it. :)

    Used Astro to navigate to the pkg.apk file and selected it. Astro opened the Android installer and the file is com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup.

    So do these just not exist when you backup using Titanium or AppControl?? I don't understand..

    Look in the Backups/Apps folder on your SD card. that is, if you have all your apps backed up with Astro.

    Right I figured that, but right now I have that folder but it belongs to AppControl's backups. Before I overwrite those with Astro's, I wonder why the other 2 backup apps don't seem to back this up at all??
