Restoring ALL app data is a bad idea. That's true.

Restoring user installed apps and their data usually works well. Restoring system apps and data across different firmwares has a high likelihood for trouble. Titanium backup stores SOME system data in xml format, making it more likely to restore successfully across firmwares.
