Migrator - Android Backup Solution and ROM Migration Utility

It can backup/restore apps (including split APKs) with respective data and runtime permissions, system and Magisk data (including settings).

ZERO warranties, use at your own risk!

Install as a regular Magisk module (no reboot needed afterwards, though).
Alternatively, you can extract `system/bin/migrator` from the zip and run it as `sh filepath` (yes, no Magisk installation required).

The documentation is bundled.
Refer to `migrator --help` or `M -h`.
It can be exported to a file: `M -h > file`

If these executables aren't readily available (before a reboot), use `/dev/migrator` or `/dev/M`.

Okay I still don't quite understand the method technically even after reading the description.
The thing is if dev say clean flash(wipe data,system,cache,dalvik) is a must before installing a rom,etc.Then will this adk solution can be used instead of titanium backup?Because you wrote that adk more efficient than tb maybe I'll use this instead of tb

All you really need to understand are the setup steps. This module prevents app data from being deleted when you use TWRP's "wipe data/factory reset feature".

And indeed it is true. No issues whatsoever -- I'm using it myself.

No extra space is taken, as data is moved, not copied.

I installed this and it erased all my app data, ironically enough. Make sure you have a backup before installing.

After typing "adk" it finds all the apps, but after typing "." it lists every app with "pm: not found". After a reboot, the apps are not installed. Am I doing something wrong?
