Keep your data and apps when you upgrade
Not sure if others already know this but I have found a way to retain all my apps and settings when upgrading from one version of AOKP to the next. It never seems to work 100% just to flash it over the top of the old version, even if you wipe cache and dalvik first. (I always seem to lose some apps in the process, though it will boot.) However, the following process has worked perfectly for me 4 times now, on two different devices (TF101 and Epic Touch). I HAVE ONLY USED IT TO UPGRADE FROM ONE VERSION OF AOKP TO THE NEXT - NOT TO COME FROM ANOTHER ROM.
1) Make a nandroid backup in CWM
2) Wipe data/cache/dalvik
3) Install new version of AOKP
4) Install GAPPS
5) Go to backups and restore, advanced restore, and restore the data partition only
6 ) Reboot.
The phone will go through the "android is upgrading" process when you reboot, and, at least for me, all settings and apps are back and working. It may not work for you, but what do you have to lose - just reboot and install clean if it doesn't. This is loads easier than trying to restore everything from Titanium Backup...
Perhaps the purpose of your life is to serve as a warning to others.
