    I know how to flash a new ROM, but the time it takes to restore apps, contacts, settings ect discourages me from doing this often. I have titanium backup pro but it still takes me a good 2 hours to get everything back up to par. Some people say it takes them 20 minutes. Is there something I'm doing wrong and is there a faster way? I feel like even with titanium I still have to manually fix settings in apps and the system and my game progresses dont even save. Can I get some help, I'm a bit of an Android nub. Thanks!

    What is the procedure you're using? 2 hours is way too long. It also depends on how many apps you have. I can normally get my phone back in 30 mins.

    First off, after you flash a new rom you only want to restore missing apps/data. You don't want to restore system apps/data from one rom to another. That should cut your time in half at least.

    What about settings such as display brightness, wifi pws, sync times ect.. And how do you save app data such as levels in angry birds

    Make sure youre doing batch backups of your apps and data. If youre only doing apps, youre losing ALL data. When you start back up your phone with the new rom on it, restore apps + data. That will clear up your saved settings and games problem. It usually takes me about 15 mins to restore everything. Unless youre doing it manually it shouldnt be taking anywhere near even an hour.

    this doesn't harm/hinder anything when you sign in to the market & it begins your automatic install of pre-downloaded apps?

    i thought i read somewhere it was harmful. if not, then this will save me lots of time. i would previously wait until all apps were downloaded, then go into Titanium & restore data for each app.

    Ive not seen any adverse effects from it personally and Ive flashed in roms a lot to find the setup I like. With the market fix, it does 95% of my apps that I got from the market. If you want to do it that way, feel free, but I think this is a lot faster because you dont have to wait for them to download and then install.

    Just remember when changing roms you want to restore items in green, not red. Red is system data and restoring that is asking for trouble.
