I've been working on an app called AppExtractor. It's meant to be a companion app to ROM Manager in that it allows you to restore individual apps, data, SMS / MMS messages, Contacts / Call Logs, and Wifi Settings from your ROM Manager backups.

AppExtractor is compatible with backups created by ClockworkMod Recovery 5 as well as previous versions of CWM Recovery.

If you are interested, you can find it on the Market here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.handyandy.appextractor

For those who cannot install from the Market, I have included the APK in this post.

Please let me know what you think!

I really hope this was what I've been looking for so long!

Does your original post mean that some kind of output from your app can be used to flash back programs and their settings from the CWM?

If yes, I'd like to make a request.

More often than not, the apks are updated, but the settings are generally the same. Is it possible to give an option to just restore the settings of the selected apps only without restoring the apps? I saw that this is possible through your program ... want to know if its possible through the CWM.

Thanks

Ok, so I got it from the market and now I understand a bit more. The idea is great. However, although it appears to be free, it is not. The user has to pay for SMS/MMS. The user is limited to restoring just 5 apps.

Fine, so, its limited! Maybe you should rename it as "lite" as otherwise it could be misleading.

Wanted to try this, mainly for sms/mms retrieval from old backups (went from sense rom to miui and sms/mms weren't carried over...

Thanks for the suggestion! I may consider renaming it so there is a lite / pro version. My intention isn't to make it confusing for anyone.

Are you still having issues downloading from the Market? It's definitely up there and supports all 1.6+ devices.

Hi Jones,
Would it be possible for you to include an option to for eg. extract from the rom image the settings or the apk or both (as chosen by the user) and recompile it into a new image (only the setting or only apk or both)?

Hmm...I'll have to look into that! ;)

Just downloaded it and will try it out soon. I would greatly appreciate it if you would put what the limitations are in the free version and/or what is unlocked with the key in your description.

Awesome!

I have been looking/waiting for app like this so that I can flash apps straight from CWM after flashing rom instead of having to install Titanium backup and the restore apps from within Android.

Much appreciated. Will give feedback once tested.
