Default [Q] Restoring backup files (apk.gz) without root?


My Galaxy Young just broke, so I got the HTC Desire S A510e from a friend.

Now, I would love to restore my contacts etc. Backup files were created with Titanium Backup free version. After researching for about 2 hours to "how to root the htc desire?" with the result that A) most of the guides out there are somehow outdated (404 for necessary files) or B) would take hell of a time, I now am looking for possiblities to restore the apk.gz-files without having the phone rooted.

[URL=""Here[/URL] is listed "Restore individual apps+data directly from ADB backups. These backups can be made on Android 4.0+ without root access!" as a feature of the Titanium Backup Pro version. That doesn't help me, since ADB backups are different than the "apk.gz", right?

Is there any other possibility to restore the files?

Thanks a lot,
