View Full Version : Quick Titanium Backup Question

03-09-2011, 11:13 AM
First time Titanium Backup user. Looking to make a backup of my apps/data before I apply a ROM for the first time.

Do I need to backup any of the system apps in red? All the threads I read talk about how people do the full app+system data backup, but then other guides say to just restore apps. I just want to get the cleanest restore possible - get my app data, settings, and sms/calls,etc back with minimal complications, which I hear usually come from restoring system data.

So, is there any point to backing up everything, or should I be good just doing the white/third apps and the green/important system data items?

Only use the app+data button, not system data and you'll be fine..:)

I just ran a batch backup and did everything, then after installing the rom I went through the list restored the apps I wanted one by one. I don't think I restored any of the system apps but I backed them up because it didn't take any extra time or effort.
