great guide finally helped me with viewing and editing the apn's on the slimkat rom i installed.
i had to do a couple different things though.. i used apn manager pro and i had to change its permissions to 777. then it would work.

Titanium Backup always hangs on me while setting APN Backup and Restore as a system app. It stays on processing and nothing happens. :\

Try using a file explorer app to locate and move apn backup and restore from /data/app to /system/app or to whichever directory u need. But, could someone here please upload their apns that were backed up with apn backup and restore? I would like to try this to see if I can get lte. Thanks. I really hope someone replies to this soon like I did lol.

I'll upload mine as soon as I do

EDIT: I had no success, I always get the following error.

I included my DNS settings in the archive, just extract and restore.

I am getting the same issue. Do i need to use titanium? as it says i need to donate to convert to system app.
Instead i tried rom tool box, converted to system app. when look for apk in system > App its not there, and data> App its not there either

I notice it uninstalls it. i have to reinstall it.. So what i did was i installed it. i copied the apk to my sd card. converted to system app, but when i try to paste to system > Priv.app it says failed..

i dont know what to do anymore. I am running beanstalk 4.4


Edit:
I just tried titanium and it just hangs.. 40 mins no progress.

Are we suppose to wipe any data before recovering?

I tried the very same, no luck whats so ever. I was running on Rooted stock 4.3 did the backup successful. I tried doing the KitKat process on C-Rom with no success. Titanium Backup hangs and restoring APN doenst work for me.

Works for me... Install like normal on carbon... Use link2sd to convert to system app then fx explorer to move the apk to / priv-app.... Reboot and restore apns..... Got full data and everything on carbon ROM virgin mobile.

It then failed with the following error:



I did a quick google search which turned up nothing, but I will look further.

Stock Rom (rooted): Baseband Version: L710VPUBMK5, build number: JSS15J.L710VPUBMK5. Android version 4.3.

Carrier is Virgin Mobile

As I said, I will keep looking for a solution, but if anyone has a quick answer, I would appreciate it.

Thanks for the write up.
Same problem, though I'm on Stock rooted MK3, on Sprint.

If on a 4.4 rom make it easy on yourself, quit using titanium... Locate the app in data/app, cut and paste to system / priv-app, click to make sure it's installed then reboot... After reboot and disabling the check within the app it will backup your apn no problems
