Downloaded but not installed. If they're corrupt than I'll just wait it out until they're up again.

because this is bare basics of jelly bean, it doesnt even come with the playstore. While padawan comes with a bunch of stuff.


Flashing right now with latest jb gapps, not liquid gapps, because the link was down. I love slow days at work. I will report back later

It's also 29 MB smaller than RC7, but the addons are a separate 18 MB file. Maybe they were included for RC7. Overall, the sizes seem fine.

I suspect there is a difference, but whether that difference is the cause for the various problems people might have is a different question. I don't think TB goes through the package manager when restoring an app. It simply copies (to my knowledge) the .apk back into /data/app. Restoring data copies back the appropriate subdirectory in /data/data . If you look in your TB backup folder, you'll see three files associated with each backup instance: the APK, the tar file with the /data/data directory structure, and a properties text file.

Furthermore, has it been proven that restoring data causes problems with THIS rom?(JB to JB,not including system apps, although most stuff in green work flawlessly )?
I can see how simply re-copying the files might cause problems whereas running through the installation process (which may or may not involve an installation script and tweaking some system databases that Package Manager normally handles) is the "official" method. But I don't know if that's merely correlation, or if actual causation has been established. I think the warning is more of a cover-your-ass approach, since in most instances we simply don't know. So to be safe, we are told to not use TB, even though it might not be causing any problems. My approach has been to restore only user app+data with TB. If there is a problem, I will uninstall the app and reinstall from Google Play to see if that makes a difference.

For example, I'm seeing a problem with the Liquid Launcher with RC8. If I try to install any widget, the launcher crashes. I don't know if this was a problem with RC7, since I was using GO Launcher EX and I could add widgets to it just fine. I uninstalled the widgets in question (HD Widgets and Agenda), reinstalled from Google Play, and the problem persists. Even the built-in analog clock widget is causing Liquid Launcher to crash, so I'm pretty sure this isn't because I restored my other widgets with TB. But just to be completely sure, I'm wiping everything and starting over to see if it makes a difference.

I am experiencing the same crashes with widgets. I wiped dalvik, cache, system and I restored no apps.

Confirmed the problem with adding widgets. I did a factory reset, logged back into my Google account, but did not even visit the Play store. Tried adding the default analog clock widget to Liquid Launcher. Crash. Tried adding the default power control widget. Crash. Anyone else getting this? Let me install QuickSSHD so I can at least login to the phone and grab a logcat...

Installed successfully for me (clean install from stock touchwiz).

No crashes, all is well except for 1 thing so far:

Sorry if this has been answered already, but I can't set google now settings. When I select "settings", a "google now has stopped working" dialog pops up and very quickly disappears.
