    I've flashed 3 rome now (currently running gummy) and I'm getting a bit tired of restoring everything after backup. I just installed TiBackup but from my recollection it cannot do the following:

    1. Restore pictures in gallery
    2. Restore settings of various email programs
    3. Restore downloaded ringtones / wallpapers in Zedge

    Etc.

    I have Nova launcher and had my setting backed up, then realized that instead of really backing up my configuration, it gives the "tap here to restore widget" and you basically have to restore all your widgets manually. Not only that, it kept not "keeping" the widgets, so I did everything about 5 times!

    Any other methods of backing up similar items?

    Thanks.

    I only use Titanium backup to restore my downloaded apps and app data. That should include email program settings.

    As for gallery pictures and zedge stuff, that's all stored in the root of the memory, so you can just copy your DCIM and zedge folders from your phone onto your desktop and then drag them back when you need them.

    I'm a bit irritated by the "restore widget" thing in Nova too.
