    I'm on stock and I've grown bored of it and want to switch to a different ROM. However, I have gotten far in a few games and I don't wish to lose the progress. Is there a way I can transfer my progress from one ROM to another?

    How would I do this in Titanium Backup?

    Come on. Go to the Play store and read up on it. Go to their website and learn. You can back up apps with their data, i.e. Angry birds. Back it up with Titanium backup and after you install a new rom, you can re-install Angry Birds and restore the data from Titanium backup.

    I read the description on the Play Store and I backed up the data for a few games but when I go to my new ROM, I don't know how to restore it.

    Open TB and you will see (or should see) backup/restore tab options at the top.

    It does exactly what it says on the tin, it backs up & restores your installed apps, you can choose app or app & data, you can run batch jobs (on the paid version) and nightly jobs, you can link them to dropbox (or other cloud services), so if your device fails you always have an off site backup.

    Data sync is another option - save off site then transfer back on new rom.

    A full nandroid backup is always the best option before you do anything though, at least you can always go back to how you had it at that point in time :)

    In the new rom, install Titanium Backup from the Play store and install the game you want to restore data for. Open Titanium and touch the the menu options (3 vertical dots at the top right) > Preferences > Backup folder location. Have it detect or point it to your Titaniumbackup folder and set it as default. To restore the game data, on the main TiBu screen, now touch the rectangle with a check mark in it in upper right next to the menu dots. In the restore section 'Run' restore all apps with data. *Important* next, Deselect all and select Data only. Checkmark the app you want to restore the data and hit the checkmark in the upper right corner to restore.

    Thank you all for the help! However, I'm still doing something wrong. When I go to 'Restore all apps with data', are there supposed to be apps there? This is all I see: [​IMG]

    I'm guessing you did a full wipe between roms and now you're wondering where your backups went?

    If so, bad news...

    Well, I have a nandroid backup from before I flashed CM10 so couldn't I flash back to stock and fix it?

    Yeah you can restore that nandroid and then make sure you copy your titanium backup folder before wiping, so you can restore it after switching roms.

    Thanks for the help. Now what do I do in TB? The method I tried last time did not work so I'm sure it won't work this time.

    Edit: I tried the same method again and it worked this time! Thanks for the help guys and sorry for the nooby question.
