    correct. you can also do a batch restore. just do not restore any system data.

    I agree with what everyone said so far -- use TB for backing up apps+app_data only -- and I will just add:

    To save all your SMS & MMS, use SMS backup+ (saves all your texts under a gmail label "SMS")

    If you want to back up music playlists, dictionary, bookmarks, and alarms, use My Backup Root (it gives the option to backup more than those I listed, but just be careful about anything you don't really need backed up to avoid conflicts between roms).
