Titanium Backup: converted a system app to "user" and it disappeared...

    I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy Ace and Titanium Backup Pro.

    I used TB to convert a couple of apps from system to user. I thought I would then be able to move those apps to the SD card.

    Two things actually happened:

    1) The app disappeared
    2) My phone had less available memory than before.

    I don't understand the nuts and bolts of Android. I suppose 2) wasn't a surprise, as the app was moving from the "System" area of memory to the user-accessible area (RAM?)

    However, I don't know why the apps have disappeared.

    Can anyone tell me why this has happened? If I've lost the apps, it's not the end of the world. Have I misunderstood what "change to user app" does?

    Hi Chris,

    Have you tried rebooting the phone, then see whether the apps are visible?

    If not, which apps are they? I've done this with Ti Backup, and apart from a couple of apps which need to be in /system to work it's been fine.
