    Hi, everyone

    I've rooted my Dinc and got skyraider 2.5.2 with full backup through titanium and nandroid.

    Here are my questions.

    1) Is there a way to transfer the exact status of my previous contact to my new rom? I've linked and synced all my contacts with facebook and stuffs and it looks like all those links have been disconnected. I don't want to link again manually.

    2) Why does titanium not backup SMS? I've restored my titanium backup and none of my SMS got restored. Luckly I've used SMS Backup & Restore to backup, so that's not a problem, but I was wondering if I'm misssing something in titanium.

    3) When I'm restoring apps with titanium, I have to keep giving permissions to install apps (clicking install button). I have around 80 apps, and I would much prefer if it's automatic without asking for my permission. Is there a way to do that?

    Thanks again for your help.

    As for batch restore, buying titanium pro will give you that feature.

    I thought you have to wipe your phone out to flash a new rom?

    two more questions, hopefully they are the last.

    1) I installed skyraider vanilla instead of the sense. What is the difference really other than the UI? I moved to vanilla because I heard it's faster. (I got around 1200 in quadrant)

    2) I'm a little bit confused with the Backup Assistant. Does Backup Assistant back up your contact in you gmail's contact? Because I tried to just restore mky contact with Backup Assistant without setting up the gmail account yet in the phone and the contact wouldn't get restored.

    No, backup assistant will only backup contacts you save as a 'Phone' contact, not a Google one. So if all your contacts were saved as Google contacts, Backup assistant won't restore anything.
