Root Is there any easier way to use Titanium Backup?

    Lets say you do a factory reset of your phone and want to put all your apps back on, you have to install each one individually with TB?

    I was hoping Titanium Backup worked kind of like Nandroid in that it just restored everything on it's own, or at least install the apps on it's own without you having to sit there and click install for each one.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    BTW I only have the free version.

    There's the key. Paid version does what you are wanting.

    Yeah, the dev does the paid thing a little different than other apps. You use Paypal and then he emails you an activation code. If you decide to go with Ti as your app backup mechanism, its a must have IMO.

    menu -> batch -> backup all user apps and system data -> run the batch operation. this will backup all your info and apps.. then to restore them all, do the same thing only choose restore all apps and data

    Yes I know but you have to install each one individually

    Just got my key for paid version so I will try that tonight when I get home.

    How did this work out. I like the idea of backing up my apps but I really hate having to setup a paypal account and dick around with all that jazz just to buy an app. Is there another option that is as good that I can pay for with my google account.

    My paypal account is linked to my checking so it just wrote him an instant echeck and I had my key in 10 minutes.

    Was worth it.

    Also TB not only reinstalls all your apps but (something I didn't know) puts them back on your homescreen where they were....

    Wow!

    MyBackup does a nice job. It can do the same level backup as TB and can also restore your home screens. One or the other is a must, I bought both, if your going to flash ROMS.

    As far as I can tell you can't restore home screens on ROMS that use any third party launcher for their UI though

    Ok well that is cool, just something about paypal that bugs me. What does the full version of TB do that the free one doesn't? If I do a batch and do a full backup and then full restore isn't that pretty good.

    Also if I buy apps from the Market can I just download them again or do I have to purchase them again if they are lost?

    mybackup doesn't require root though, right? so how are they doing that if titanium does? what is titanium doing (since it requires root) that mybackup can't do?

    i used mybackup before i rooted, i have installed titanium but haven't gotten the chance to use it yet...

    mybackup doesnt save the data within the apps when you back them up. just the apk installer for the app itself. also the free version is only 30 days trial and pro version is 5.00 compared to 4.00 for TB.

    Just use ADW Launcher. It can back up your homescreen setup and settings onto your sd card. Then you can restore once you have flashed your ROM and reinstalled your 3rd party apps.

    LP might do this too, but not sure as I don't use it.
