There is a backup guide in my sig.

To be honest you'll learn to live without most of the settings backups you make but the app backups are useful. If you're going from rom to rom the settings will often not work - for example 2.1 backups won't work on 2.2. Sense UI backups wont work on Vanilla. 1.5 backups are a no go on 2.1 or 2.2 etc...

Yes, use bulk backup of installed user apps in titanium, then restore them on new rom.

Donate version means no need to manually allow each app to get installed.


Having trouble getting an answer? | What is XDA about? | How to ask for help?

if [ $PM.incoming.type = $type.question.ROM.how_to_use ] || [ $PM.incoming.type = $type.question.ROM.silly_question ]; then mv $PM.incoming /.trash; PM.response($responsetype.ignore); $PM.sender.ignore_in_future=true; init.sequence($boy_who_cried_wolf); fi;
