This uses a nandroid backup instead of titanium backup. Basically, instead of having two separate backups, nandroid and titanium, you can use your nandroid to recover apks and data instead of using titanium, saving space and time as a result.

Smile AppExtractor - Added ICS Compatibility
Just published AppExtractor v1.5.4 to the Market. This should resolve issues with App restore on ICS.

I'm still having problems when trying to restore user apps (1.5.4): "Unable to generate APK listing"

I just published a new version (1.5.3). Can you see if this works when restoring your data now? Did you reboot after restoring SMS / Wifi?

I'm looking into changing the way that SMS / MMS messages are restored... a more reliable way that would hopefully work across different ROMS. I'm deving / testing on a DX so it limits me... I'm able to restore CM7 SMS messages without issue so I'm curious why this may not be working for you.

Proper SMS/MMS restore across different ROMs would be the holy grail for me - enough for me to spring/donate for this app and then some.

I've been trying to use Titanium and/or MyBackup Pro to restore SMS/MMS messages from a Sense based ROM to AOSP and it's giving me fits. After restoring the messages to the AOSP ROM, the MMS messages are always split off from their original conversations. I see the same behavior with the stock messaging app, Chomp, Handcent or GoSMS. With the Sense ROM and Sense messaging app, these same MMS messages are embedded with all the other SMS messages from the same sender. I haven't yet tried your application for this same test.

I was actually to the point that I was going to try to develop my own solution, but I stumbled across AppExtractor last night. It doesn't sound like it's fully mature yet, but your quote above gives me hope. For the record, I would be happy to test and/or help with coding if I can assist here at all. I'm an embedded Linux engineer by day, and haven't yet delved into Android, but I suspect I could assist. At a minimum, I certainly have a great test case I'd be willing to report on.

I've actually looked into my issue a bit and I think the messaging apps are getting confused by the non-standard schema of the HTC mmssms.db file. I can probably massage my mmssms.db file to make this work, but I'm looking for something more robust - a solution that I could trust going forward.

Let me know if I can assist in any way!

I may be looking for the same thing. Maybe a flashable zip containing apps, settings, data that we can restore universally. Im constantly installing new custom roms and Its a pain to have to install apps individually and the reflash gapps, tibu, and a file manager.... I just dont know how to create my own flashable zips.
