New 10.1.3-I9300 Installed / Problem To Restore My Data
I'm new to cyanogenmod and just installed CM 10.1.3 (Android 4.2.2) following the heimdall/OSX guide but I'm having some problems to restore my data from the previous Samsung 4.3 installation.
I took a backup before installing cyanogenmod by using the Android SDK adb command
./adb backup -apk -shared -all -f backupname.ab
but that seems to have taken a full system backup as a single file and not possible to recover any of my files individually..
Unfortunately I didn't had my phone contacts to be synced with a gmail accounts as I wanted to keep them separate for synchronising with my email contacts but this doesn't seem to be an option with the current cyanogenmod version, you can't create a local contact on the phone but the any new contact you add must be part of an online account like gmail..
Giving the current circustances Is there an easy way I could restore all my files (app settings/contacts/photos) to my phone ? Can some one help me and tell me how ? My thught is to restore the previous 4.3 Android version from Samsung and root my phone to take single backups using Titanium backup but I don't know how well this will work ...
couple of more questions :
1) Is there an easy way to restore my phone Samsung ROM (and data) previously as it was before installing cyanogenmod with the adb backup file ?
2) Can you point me to a good howto in order to root my cyanogenmod (OSX preferable)
3) Once I have cyanogenmod configured will all my data, what' the best way to keep backups ? is the adb command usefull in that case ?
Sorry for the many questions.
Thanks in advance,
