Info 2 complete backup solution

I started to experiment different custom roms for the old 4X and could not find a decent backup app .
tried titanium backup but i got no app data , tried my backup pro , backup master and another couple from the market but to no avail .
finally i lucked out with Helium ( from team cyanogenmod ) it gave me all my apps back , all settings and saves , sms and call log . for contacts i just exported them to ext sd and imported back on new rom ( zaiben ) .
if anyone has a better solution , please post .

It is not recommended to restore your settings and system apps on different ROM because in most cases they are not compatible..
All your apps and contacts are synced with google, so when you install new ROM, google automatically restores it so really there is no need for backup. Your messages, setting, call logs can only lead to FC`s and for ROM not working properly..

Then you are removing half the reason for having an Android device.

Maybe I just sync/ back up my data to my private FTP server. Can somebody recommend an app for that?

Default thanks for all the interest

i started this thread because having a good backup app makes testing custom roms a lot easier .
i will try the go backup pro next time , thanks for the idea .

L.E.
just got the blackscreen bug in zaiben rc7 . changed to official miui and tried go backup pro . got the sms, call log and contacts . however , the apps needed to be installed 1 by 1 ( 57 apps ) and they did not have their data ( had to start over in subway surfers ) . gonna stick to helium for apps .
