    What is the best way for restoring apps after a ROM install. Currently I am using Defrost but it updates that often I try to keep up. I have got into the practice of making a backup using ROM manager then doing a full cache and data wipe before installing the new ROM.

    I have been letting the phone do its own thing and eventually the apps seem to restore themselves eventually, but is there a quicker way to restore them after a full wipe.

    Cheers.

    astro file manager (market) does apps backup to sdcard. It's free and installs them again pretty painlessly

    Agreed. +1 for Astro, although be aware the apps are like a fresh install. User data can be lost so top scores in games etc...

    -1 for astro...

    +1million for titanium

    Titanium restores ALL your APPS AND APP DATA. Everything. Market links too.


    And you shouldn't need to wipe flashing a defrost rom on top of another defrost. No issues my end and I've never done it. But I always do a titanium and a nandroid backup in case i have to.

    What Lekky said!

    Titanium is fantastic.

    And again, as for Defrost, I've never had to wipe anything, you can upgrade straight over the top. Give it a try next time! ;-)

    As always, do a nandroid before you do!!

    Is there 1-click-backs-up-all for Titanium...?

    Seems a bit convoluted from what I can see of it.... :thinking:

    if you donate, you get the full version which does 1 click backup and restore, very worth the $3.99

    Although, menu, batch and choosing to run backup.user apps and system data isn't too long.
