Default Guide: Mass Restoring Apps With Titanium Backup And Your Phone

Not content with installing apps one by one, I decided to see if Titanium Backup would work..and alas! It does!

Pre-Reqs:

1. Rooted NookColor: http://nookdevs.com/NookColor_Rooting
2. BusyBox: http://nookdevs.com/NookColor_Installing_Busybox
3. SU/Superuser.apk: http://nookdevs.com/NookColor_Instal..._Superuser_app
Titanium Backup installed on the phone: http://www.appbrain.com/app/titanium...TitaniumBackup (I recommend the paid version!)


Steps:

Open up Titanium Backup on your rooted Android phone, and backup the apps you'd like to transfer
Use Astro to backup Titanium Backup(Oddly wasn't able to do this through Titanium Backup itself?)
Use adb/astro to install Titanium Backup on the Nook, after BusyBox and SU have been installed
Transfer the 'TitaniumBackup' directory on your phones SD card to your nooks
Run Titanium Backup on your Nook, and go to batch restore, and then restore missing apps. I chose to restore the apps only, and not data.

Let it do it's thing, and you should be set Just did this with about 50 apps, and it seems to have worked.

I was trying to use Titanium to back up whatever I have in my NC but no go.... it would always stay at 0%. Any ideas? I'm rooted and SU-ed.
I see dead phones, calling around just like regular phones.

A better way to install Busybox. Just install it from Titanium backup.

if you get the "bad mode" error, just use root explorer and copy busybox to the /system folder anthen install using the code in instruction # 11. then your good to go. thats how i got around it.


also i used a terminal emulator on the NC itself
