    Hey all.
    Just thought I'd drop by from my s3 forums and say hey, how's it going and all that.
    I frequent this forums now and then just never post.
    Looks like things are still semi-active here, that's good to see.

    I have a question, well actually 2....
    1: Suggestions for a TW rom? It's a friend who has my old s2, and it's still rockin solid, going strong.

    2: Any suggestions for a TB alternative that backs up apps+data? He wants a free solution to TB, that works. I bought TB so I only use it mainly, but was wondering if someone could suggest something.

    Thanks for any suggestions, and nice to see this place is still hopping

    There are lots of app backups. Helium does data backup. (So it's a 2-app solution.)

    I see you have gone to the S3, still waiting for it to come down in price here. For a great TW ROM, I am thinking project X is the one.

    I used the free version of TB for backing up for a while before I decided to go with the pro version. If it is a cost issue, the free one worked well. If you put "app backup" in the play store, you will get a list of them.

    Helium is kinda cool, but it requires a internet connection and also requires a pc side as well as the app.

    TB free is good for backing up, but restore is a major pain in the butt, unless you wanna sit and hit install > done.....install > done for all your apps.

    I was hoping there was a free version that did a 1 click install for all the apps, without interaction.

    I'll look into ProjectX, but need a backup/install solution before I do anything.

    Helium does not require a data connection, just tell it no when it asks you if you want to sync online

    Ahh ok, cool, I might give that a try see how it works at least.

    He's on a mac so it's gonna be hard to work with that I'm guessing.....that's why I was leaning to the phone side

    Tell him to download Online Nandroid Backup in the Play Store, it's free and basically it'll do a full backup of the system with the option for it to create backups in CWM or TWRP format, after he has created the backup, he can then go into CWM and do an Advanced restore for just the data and that will restore all his apps+data... :)
