Default [Q] Titanium Backup to restore apps after ROM installation.

What's the best process to use in TB to backup and restore before and after a clean install with a new rom. Should I do apps and data or just apps? I want to do a true clean install and not carry over any junk by restoring backups. Any help is appreciated.

Myself, when I do a restore from TB I will do a batch restore of just the apps. If the apps all restore with no issues then I will go back and restore the data to the apps that rely on having the data restored such as games, or anything else that may have personalized settings. This has worked well for me with no issues.
I've used this going from Aosp roms to sense roms and vice versa.

Agreed. Especially in the case of going back and forth between AOSP and Sense.

Good post.

Didn't notice that the OP also asked about backing up from a clean install...
I just did this yesterday, going from an Aosp rom to a Sense rom...
After doing your install, and getting what apps and settings taken care of that you want, go into TB and do a batch backup of both the apps and the system settings.
I've never really used the system settings backups, other than wifi info, but I just like to have the backup'd settings for just in case moments.
I also will clean out my backups from time to time, doing a complete delete of the backups. But before I do this, I make a copy of my TB sd card folder and place it into a folder on my notebook for safe keeping in case I ever need it. Never needed it yet, but you never know...

Awesome! Thanks for the help guys. You definitely answered my questions. I have yet to have a problem, knock on wood. I just wanted to make sure I'm not carrying over any erroneous data.
