Yes I restored everything - system data included. I guess that could be the problem? I'm in worse shape now. I disabled and cleared the data for Gmail and now the Play store won't let me install and I can't find the Gmail in system>apps anymore to re enable. F&$#@.

Maybe it's not too late to wipe data and try again (Making a backup of only sms and apps since that's all I really care about.

If you gotten any new sms, back it up, and titanium backup remembers them, same with potential new apps (even if you can redownload them) Titanuim remembers!

I recommend a wipe, or wipe and go back to the backup of 1.9.1 you hopefully had? and install over that, and never restore any of the red data, since the versions differ some in each release, and with the green text ones like sms/mms/apn and bookmarks, just restore it's data.. never the program.. you had to learn the hard way But you will never forget it at least

For the wipe check gabos faq (in my sig) for extended install

Always backup and restore User Apps only.. Never System app. You need to filter user apps in TB and you'll be safe. You basically don't want to restore system apps because they constantly get their sources changed for every update. Sometimes the changes could be minimal code wise but big enough to affect your usage.

I asked gabo to make a little write up about red text and green text in TB for the faq, just to be sure no one else suffers from the same mistake made here, since we get some new people every day, and it isn't clearly explained in the faq.

Geez... I remember when I had my S2 back in February and this rom had started to take off, now it's incredible. It already was the best ICS rom before the official release. Great F**k*ng job westcrip!
