    I am sure many others will chime in here, but TiBu not only allows for automation, it allows for app backup with data. Crucial feature to root users, who change ROMs often. Verizon might get ya Angry Birds Rio back, but I want mine back with 3 stars on every stage and all my fruit ;-0

    So, what's the harm in using both? I believe I do back-ups on both (just in case!), but only have used TiBu to restore. Isn't the backup asst accessible without root? I think TiBu is a root access only app.

    I've never used BA so i actually don't know. LOL, my bad this was in the Hacks thread so i assumed Superuser was implied...if indeed this is a no root question, i have heard others talking about google backup instead instead of Assistant, i believe it is an option you can turn on in Privacy, but you have no scheduling control...

    Its all about automation, I run a batch backup of all apps & data once a week or so and especially when I am about the switch roms.

    Then I start a batch restore apps & data and uncheck any apps I don't want reinstalled like really old stuff or apps that don't apply to the current rom.

    I've never used back-up assistant and I don't know how it works or what it backs up. All I know is Titanium Backup works perfectly every time, I've never had an app not get restored.

    Note that BA is bloat and won't work on blurless framework ROMs.

    Probably why I don't use it on Justice... never thought about it.

    Good call 1KDS!! I hadn't thought of that either. I was just saying about the backup asst, if one were to sbf (obviously to stock), couldn't the apps be recovered by ba without root? At least games and such that don't require root. I have not used it either, as TiBu works so well. Just a thought....
