If you are rooted, go for Titanium Backup : it allows you to browse all your apps, and freeze (truly disable, but not uninstalled in case something bad happens) the one you want.
You can also disable those kind of apps with adb:
pm disable _name_of_the_apk_
pm disable _name_of_the_apk_
If you've been on /r/Android for any considerable amount of time, you'll have heard users extol the virtues of Titanium Backup (requires root). Forgive its outdated UI for it really is the best backup app available and invaluable to have in the toolbox of anyone who likes to fiddle around with their phone, as many of us do.
Helium is another great backup app which does not require root.
Outdated article with outdated recommendations.
Use Titanium Backup. You can back up apps and data. Although keep in mind that a factory reset wipes internal storage also.
The closest you could come is making a Titanium Backup then restoring after the flash. Alternatively you could make a TWRP backup as there are various apps that will restore parts of those (as opposed to the whole thing).
By default, the only way to preserve Health data is to sync it with Google Fit (or Apple Health under iOS) -- it's not backed up anywhere. If you have a rooted phone, you can use a program like Titanium Backup to save this protected app data, and restore it later. Some manufacturers provide a privileged backup & restore program that provides this capacity even without rooting the phone -- LG happens to be one of them (with LG Mobile Switch), so that seems like your best bet.
Use titanium backup, find snapchat, backup app and data. When you want to reinstall, just restore app and data. If you need more explanation, let me know and I can take screenshots and give a more detailed description of the process.
Linkme: Titanium backup
Edit- Actually, I don't think the linkme bot works on this sub. [link] here's the link.
Use Titanium Backup or oandbackup, but root is a necessary prerquisite.
Some custom ROMs let you dirty flash (flash without wiping) updates so long as you're already running a version of that custom ROM.
Otherwise, I'd try Titanium Backup. It backs up & restores your apps and app data so that everything is exactly the way you left it. It's especially good for carrying over custom launcher setups. Don't be fooled by the ugly UI, it's the best at what it does and it's still being updated today.
As for contacts and other info, that should be synced to your Google account so you'll get them back as soon as you sign in.
Yeah, I would guess you need to reset the phone in twrp or whatever you use. You can use Titanium Backup (root) to back up all your apps to SD and then reinstall them once you've booted up cm13
To get the 5.1.1 OTA you would need to re-flash the stock ROM and stock recovery. Updating to the stock ROM using any method (OTA or flash) would remove root, so you would need to re-root the phone after installation.
If you want to avoid that you could try finding a pre-rooted stock ROM to flash, or use a custom 5.1.1 ROM which will almost certainly include root, among other things.
You can back up your phone using a few different methods. Google backup does backup app data, but only for apps which allow it, so there is no guarantee and I don't recommend relying on it as your sole solution. You can use Kies by Samsung to backup almost everything, but it won't backup "protected" app data such as authenticators or bank apps.
Since you are rooted, I recommend using something like Titanium Backup to backup all of your stuff. If you are using a custom recovery, such as TWRP, you can also run whats called a nandroid backup of your phone to capture imgs of the rom, bootloader, modem etc. which you can re-flash at any point and pick up where you left off.
Game progress is usually tied to a linked account through either FB or Google Play Games, but in the case the game supports neither, Kies or Titanium Backup will most likely preserve the app data for you.
Titanium Backup is another tool that a lot of root users like. It's a little hard on the eyes and difficult to navigate at first, but I can't live without it now. You have to buy a key to make iut really useful (batch operations), but it's absolutely worth it to me.
But, as others have said, just flash the system.img from the update package and you don't have to mess around with a backup app. You'll have to re-root, but it won't wipe data unless you run the flash-all.bat/flash-all.sh without removing the -w flag in the file. Check XDA (or just google it) for a guide on how to use fastboot.
Yes, but you'll need root access. Download the latest Google Phone APK from APKMirror and install it as a system app with Titanium Backup.
Root is only required if you intend to use apps that need it.
i.e. Titanium Backup
Or maybe adaway for blocking ads globally.
> how can i dirty flash from cm to lineage without losing all data?
If there's not experimental build then unfortunately it's not possible to just flash the new versions and keep your data intact.
I would recommend using Titanium Backup to back up your apps and their data and then restore them to a new LOS installation:
Make a nandroid backup of boot, system and data in TWRP before doing anything else.
Root your CyanogenMod installation
Download and install Titanium Backup from the play store.
Backup "all user apps" in Titanium Backup from the batch actions menu
In advanced wipe in TWRP wipe everything except Internal Storage (and SDcard if you have one)
Flash the LineageOS zip file meant for your device, reboot and set LOS up.
Flash ARM Gapps on your device.
Download the SU for ARM from here and flash it.
Download and install Titanium Backup from the Play store.
In TB open the menu (by holding down the menu button or back button on your device (you might have to go bind the menu function to some button in Settings > Buttons), scroll down and press Manage Android ID and then restore from backup.
Now you can restore all the apps you want from the main screen of TB. You can also batch restore all of them and their data at once. I do warn you that the batch restore might take some time and might seems it gets stuck (is restoring one app for a half an hour) but if you set it to restore during the night it should restore everything and be ready in the morning.
If you want to use any apps that don't allow you to be rooted then download and "flash" the SU removal arm that can be found from the same page as the SU for ARM.
If anything goes wrong before step 10 you can just restore the nandroid backup done in step one and be back to how the phone was before.
Titanium backup is an app that allows your to backup the apps on your phone + any data associated with them. also restore said apps later and restore market status (i.e. if you installed via market).
I have gone thru 6 phones and 3 tablets in past few years, titanium made it so I was up and running in under an hour after turning on a new phone and downloading and installing titanium.
So you flashed O2OS on top of CM11S? If so, then it would be a good idea to do a proper wipe. Check off dalvik cache, system, data and cache. You can get to it by selecting wipe and then advanced wipe. Leave internal storage and USB-OTG unchecked.
You can backup your apps with Titanium Backup but it requires root access. If you don't have that, then you can gain root access by flashing SuperSU.
No, you have no need to remove it. Nor do you have a need to flash the SuperSU binary with CM since it has root access available to you already.
You need to clean flash since you are going from 12.1-13. If you update later from a nightly CM 13 to another CM 13 nightly then you can dirty flash. I think Titanium Backup can back app data up for you. And you can restore them again in CM 13. Never used it to know how to do that though.
You can flash Open Gapps. ARM/6.0 and whatever package you want. You can click on the arrows right next to the packages and it will tell you what it will install. Minimum of nano is needed for the Google app voice search. I recommend going for the smaller packages to avoid clutter. I usually go with nano just because I don't need all those google apps.
Have no idea. You can test one out and see from there. Odds are they are all about the same. You could try with the oldest so you could dirty flash up if there is any issues with the older ones.
Opinion rewards money will not be lost. Once you sync your google account it should appear. I have flashed many different roms and still have the same old ~$1 I always have.
The android market still only has TB w/ root requirement
So a small caveat my s6 is unlocked and rooted so I do a full back up, factory reset and if it doesnt help I restore the back-up and move forward. As far as I was aware TB is still root only which does not help most people as more and more devices are locked down.
If his bootloader is already unlocked or he is already rooted, he could also just backup the games with Titanium Backup, then clean flash PureNexus and apply the backup.
And even if he can't root his phone, he could atleast try to backup with adb (for comfort with apps like Helium).
My experience has been that pretty little is preserved across new installations of the Pebble app, not much is really saved to your Pebble account (and when servers are gone, you can expect nothing to be carried over). Whether you can transfer all your settings and health history depends on your phone situation. Some OEMs provide a privileged backup and restore utility which can transfer private data during migration. As an example, I recently upgraded from an LG G3 to an G6, and was able to preserve most all app settings -- including all Pebble settings and health data -- via use of the "LG Backup" utility (now called "LG Mobile Switch").
If you're rooted, you can use Titanium Backup for this, and it should work across different phone brands/ROMs.
If you are rooted you can use Titanium Backup to back your apps and other data up. Also, I'd suggest that you unlock your bootloader and install a custom recoevery to access TWRP and create a Nandroid backup.
~~if not your out of luck.~~
Titanium Backup - back up apps and data, create multiple profiles for an app, uninstall, disable them, etc. Requires root. Does many other things. 328,263 total reviews with an average of 4.6. Been around since almost the beginning on Android and has seen many many updates.
Package Disabler Pro - only disables apps. No root. Perfect if that's all you need. 772 total reviews with an average of 4.4.
If you're rooted, try Titanium Backup: [link]
If you're not rooted, try Helium - App Sync and Backup: [link]
What data do you not want to lose? If you are worried about pictures, videos and that sort of stuff, you won't lose them if they are in the micro SD in a factory reset. Just save it onto a cloud drive like Google Drive or Dropbox if you are still worried. If there are apps you don't want to lose, use Titanium Backup. It requires root access, but you have TruPureXMM, which comes rooted. It'll allow you to backup your apps. Backup those apps onto your micro SD card. Then, factory reset your phone. Flash TruPureXMM again, and I hope that ends up fixing your phone.
Titanium Backup if you're rooted. If not, manually copypasting the saves and take comfort in that you'll definitely root them after the update to make these thing simpler.
While I haven't done this myself, I believe Titanium Backup Pro would work. But I can't 100% confirm, so read up on the app before purchasing.
Here's how I've migrated my household's nekos across android phones in the past: using either Titanium Backup (Needs Root) or Helium (Root not needed), back up the app and all it's data somwhere where you can get the backup off of the old phone and onto the new (laptop/desktop, cloud storage, SD Card). Once you have the backup, load the app you're using for backing up onto the new phone, and restore the neko atsume app & data onto the new phone.
I've found this method to be highly reliable, having migrated kitties to new phones or into fresh installs of new custom ROMs probably about 5 times now. Once or twice there was some weirdness where I'd lost a day or two of progress, which leads me to suspect that the game may be caching data someplace Ti Backup/He don't think to look at when they make their backups, but I can live with a lost day.
As part of a full back up yes but its sounds like you are more looking for titanium backup functionality which twrp can not do.
If you have Titanium Backup
You can use it to extract/restore apps (+ possibly associated data) from a TWRP backup.
But as /u/Saki_EU says you can not restore your data partition as it would cause conflicts across roms.
>...where to clear the cache for all apps at once...
LOS 15.1 is not available for my device yet so I can't test this but if your device is rooted you could try > Titanium Backup > Batch actions (icon w/ the checkmark top right) > Manipulate data > Clear cache for user & system apps.
If you are rooted on android, you can use Titanium Backup to backup the app data into a file, then restore it later using Titanium Backup again. This works with any app/game that uses local storage for app data.
If you aren't rooted, you can try Helium but I don't know if it works, never tried.
If you're on iOS then i don think you can.
quando smanettavo con le rom usavo TitaniumBackup ma penso sia ancora valido.
Per app come whats app penso che tu debba copiarti a manina tutti i media dell'app ma forse trovi anche un app dedicata.
Just back up your data using some backup app like Titanium Backup or Parcel (I used Parcel and it worked fine), uninstall, install my apk, and restore your data. The backup/restore step will take quite a long time, as LLSIF has a lot of downloaded data.
You'll still have to download the new content from today though obviously
Follow this guide to unlock your bootloader, install custom recovery, and root your device. You can use the space to store full backups of your phone via custom recovery or apps with Titanium Backup.
> Patronizing jerk
Wow, you're really easily offended (and pissy).
> Holy cow do you think I'm 8? I'm a Software Engineer. I've owned an iPhone before dude. You're not telling me anything new.
Sorry, I must have missed the posting of your biography.
> Google Photos automatically synchronizes all my photos nowadays so just ignore that whole bit of the process because it doesn't even exist anymore.
You were the one who said, "make sure my pictures are stored somewhere else". Those were your exact words. Why did you say them?
> it's completely unfair to say that it's just so much better to do it with an Apple device.
I didn't say that now did I? What I said was, "What you described sounds like the iPhone has an advantage in this specific area."
For those keeping score though... the advantages Apple has in restore/backup in terms of what's automatically backed up each night (or on demand) and automatically fully restored:
Missing from Google:
* Bluetooth pairings
* Google Authenticator data
* Custom settings (some, including notifications)
* Game saves, app data, app settings (may or may not)
* Photos not in Google Photos
These are reasons why Apple has an advantage in the specific area of backups and why 3rd party backup solutions are a thing on Android.
Now, how important these things are to someone is entirely subjective. To me, it's very important to both have automated backup on a regular basis as well as automated restoring of absolutely everything. iOS does this, and does it perfectly. Android has some issues.
What you want is titanium back up. it is the best for that.
Open the app,click the back up and restore tab, click an app, hit freeze. .
You can also un-install but really no reason to and if you have trouble you can unfreeze vs backing up and uninstalling
thats not where your app data is stored, though. You'll want to check out /data/data
Titanium backup is the best tool for backing up and restoring everything, its well worth the purchase. You can back up everything into one folder that is easily copied to your PC
Root your phone and use Titanium Backup. You have the choice of totally uninstalling them, or freezing them incase you want to use it at a later stage.
If your bootloader isn't unlocked, then follow this guide and get Titanium Backup. You'll need to wipe your phone again but it's worth it.
Titanium Backup is the way to go
It's just fantastic, set up a new ROM + Kernel; 15 minutes later all my apps are exactly how they were before I wiped my phone.
Sorry for the late response.
I am no expert myself. But as per recommendations from friends, I have tried Titanium Backup ([link]). It is overall fairly intuitive, though with a somewhat messy UI. Hopefully it will serve your purpose.
To use it, you have to link your device to a PC and follow instructions. Your level of tech expertise won't be a factor.
I believe there are other simpler solutions out there, but I went with the crowd. Hope this helps.
If your phones are rooted, you can use Titanium Backup. You can use the batch functions to backup and export everything, transfer the file from Phone 1 to computer to Phone 2 then import. I've honestly never used it, but the app's been around forever and I've no doubt you can find lots of help online or on YouTube.
If your phones aren't rooted, I don't know the best way to do it all at once, it would be on a per app basis.
But the Google setup process now asks you to check the apps you want to restore from a list that you had most recently on that Gmail account. Just make sure to run the backup from the Settings before wiping everything.
That was kinda all over the place. Hope it helps.
Edit: game/app settings can typically be restored automatically, once you log in, or settings can be exported then imported again. Hopefully.
Titanium Backup is the golden standard for backups for Android. It's ugly as sin but it's probably my most used paid app.
You could root it and take a full backup using Titanium backup or something.
Please do share the procedure if you go down the rooting route. I have been thinking of doing the same since a long time but couldn't find any simple solution online.
You can root without losing your app data. Use Titanium Backup after rooting, then you can try custom roms after that. Don't know if you can restore appdata after changing roms though -- app compatibility and all.
All the ways I know require root access.
You can use Titanium Backup to backup the app, which places the APK (and your app data) on the user-accessible "sdcard" storage.
You can also just pull the APK file from /data/app/com.MichaelDavies.CataclysmDDA/ with a root-enabled file manager.
If those aren't an option, no sweat. I've emailed Michael Davies to see if he has it online somewhere.
Yeah, I'd use Titanium Backup to backup your apps if you can. Also use an app called SMS Backup and Restore to backup sms texts and call logs.
If you're rooted you can use Titanium Backup.
If not, you can try Helium, I'm not sure it would cover your use case but it seems like the best option.
Luckily I said "iirc"... I remembered it wrong. So long time i used this (it does linking, but symlinks apps from SD card to internal memory as if they were on internal memory, which has nothing to do with Play).
TitaniumBackup (only in Pro version) is what I should have suggested: [link]
TiBu is your best option if your bootloader is unlocked and rooted.
Unlocking the bootloader may wipe data.
MIUI Backup and restore only works on there own roms or miui based customs roms.
Google Play will download and install previously used apps, if you choose that option, when setting up LOS. But not data.
At least until you're comfortable flashing updates and making backups, I'd say stick to snapshots for now. Nightlys are cool and all, but for people that are new to the custom ROM scene, I'd say just hold off until you're more comfortable/ confident. Stability is much more important than you might think.
To backup your data, for apps, at least, there are tutorials for an app called Titanium backup which many people suggest. I have it, but frankly rarely use it. I'm just too lazy to make backups myself. It's probably one of the best free full backup apps for apps and data. There might be better ones out there, but I haven't checked.
I'm not trying to "hack apps and whatnot". Rooting is not something I'm not supposed to do. Heck, OnePlus even doesn't void my warranty for it.
Completely legit reasons why my phone is rooted:
Having root access to your phone is the same as having admin access to your computer. Imagine programs not working because you have an admin account on your computer. That's complete and utter madness. People should stop seeing root as something dangerous/unwanted.
I think you can only do this if you root your phone; then you can access the app's private data store, and use a program like Titanium Backup to backup/restore it to your new handset.
It is in it's description: -
So yes needs root.
If you don't have root, it maybe possible to remove them with adb commands. But if xiaomi automatically restores them it is not a solution.
Freezing the apps, keeps them from working and been restored.
Looks like a deterministic wallet with mnemonic recovery seed: [link]
To restore the funds, you'll have to have the recovery seed. Usually a sequence of 12, 15 or 24 English words.
Once installed, it seems the wallet is encrypted on the device using a passphrase. However, that does not restore the private keys, only encrypts what is stored on the device. If OP happens to have a copy of the wallet-file, for example in a Titanium Backup, the passphrase will be needed in order to decrypt the copy of the wallet. If there's no copy of the wallet left, the passphrase is useless.
Admittedly, I've been stuck on an iPhone for a while, but would something like Titanium Backup do the job? It grabs apps + data and backs them up for you, though you have to do it on an app-by-app basis unless you spring for the paid version.
Something like SMS Backup Restore might work, but it depends on where Allo keeps its data. I used to use these two apps in between flashes/between devices when upgrading, though there might be newer options these days.
Titanium Backup - Remove system apps, backup / restore apps, data and settings device wide, multiple user profiles (run apps under different profiles), etc.
SD Maid - Regular maintenance to clear orphan, stale cache, bloated app cache, optimize SQLite databases, etc.
What app data specifically? Google will backup all their own app data. Whatsapp data back-ups store to your drive account and you can set it to back up just before you reset to save the most recent messages. If your're using Office 365 - that's also backed up by Microsoft. Not sure what kind of data you're worried about?
If you root your phone with magisk, you can use Titanium Backup (Pro) is a traditional favourite for people who regularly factory reset devices: r/[link]
However, if you intend wiping the device completely, obviously, you need to get the backup off the device, and probably be better to decrypt everything before you reset aswell.
Logging into google does not sync app data. You'll need to use titanium backup (requires root) or helium backup (does not require root).
Can't really give you too much advice without knowing what kind of phone(s). Some OEMs provide a backup and restore utility which can transfer your apps' private data during migration. For example, I recently upgraded from an LG G3 to an G6, and was able to preserve app settings -- including Pebble settings and health data -- via use of the "LG Backup" utility (now called "LG Mobile Switch").
(iOS, I have no idea.)
I'm pretty sure that's by design, why would Google want to be storing backups from apps you're not getting from them?
You can always root and use Titanium Backup from the Play Store.
Right, I was just clearing up your doubts in that regard. I didn't really mean to contradict you, just saying that Android is easier than you might think. But yeah, switching could appear cumbersome to some. I'm a software tester though, and regularly have to use both platforms (and I personally own an iOS tablet and an Android phone), and honestly, as far as ease of use, I see no difference.
And as far as the cloud back up, Titanium ([link]), with the backup placed in a folder that syncs to a cloud service, but that requires root. I didn't say that was easier, but it seems more comprehensive, from what users have said online. I haven't had to use it.
Sure, and thanks that was very clear!
So one app says you're rooted, one says you're not, then SuperSU (from the play store) doesn't want to install...
So, I wonder if you are really rooted or not? Maybe try to install a program (aside from SuperSU) that needs root, and see if it works. Like say - Titanium Backup., and see what it does.
You're going to have to wipe and start from scratch. You don't have to wipe your internal storage so you can still keep your personal files. You'll just have to re-download your apps. Next time, use Titanium Backup to backup your apps.
I used Titanium Backup to make a backup of all of my apps and their data, then I copied the backup folder from internal storage onto my computer. I also copied all of my camera pictures and any other personal data by using MTP.
You can save yourself the hassle of reinstalling your apps one by one with Titanium Backup. It requires root and the pro version allows you to backup your SMS/MMS messages as well as your call history. It's one of the most useful apps I use.
I highly recommend Titanium backup, you'll need a rooted device, but with it you'll be able to preserve all of your apps data, and restore it once you've performed a factory reset or whatever it is you're planning to do. It saves the backups to a folder on your SD card which you can upload to the Cloud storage host of your choice, or copy the files across onto your desktop, it's up to you.
Root and use Titanium Backup to backup and restore. Added benefit, you can debloat and install system level ad blocking (via Adaway)
I used Titanium Backup to get rid of Voice Mate and a few other annoying apps. Titanium Backup has a feature called "Freeze" that disables and hides apps, including ones that are hard to get rid of. You do need root to use Titanium Backup, and you need the Pro version of Titanium Backup to get the freeze feature, but as far as paid apps go it is one of the best ones I have bought.
Its UI is pretty ugly, but I've been using TitaniumBackup for years. Pro is worth the cost, but free does enough.
It doesn't make full image backups, it backs up each app WITH data individually. The advantage to this is you can restore just the apps you want to a new device or ROM very easily and without having to log back in.
It can also restore apps/data individually from a full TWRP backup if you regularly take image backups as well.
And of course it can upload the backups automatically to your chosen Cloud storage
You can encrypt your backups to make passing it around your cloud storage safer
You can disable or uninstall the Asus apps as well. Use an app like Titanium Backup to remove or make these changes. You can freeze/disable/backup all these changes and eventually restore them if need be if problems arise. Asus apps are in the Play store as well if you need them again. This requires a root of course. Note it's usually safer to just disable or hide these apps using ZenUI or another launcher. Remember to backup.
I haven't rooted a phone since the N6P originally launched, but I always installed Titanium Backup and removed any crapware I didn't use.
Assuming you are rooted, here are main things I use it for:
1) Removing System level apps / services (debloating)
2) Full Backup of App and Data, either one time manually or via schedule. Automatically syncing those (encrypted) backups wherever you want (FTP, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc)
3) Ability to "Freeze" an app to prevent it running or appearing installed, but without having to uninstall and lose data/configuration.
4) Ability to restore Apps and/or Data on the same device or another device. Can also keep multiple backups in case you want to restore to older versions of an app.
5) Ability to create multiple data profiles. I use this a lot to differentiate my use of home vs. work. You create the data profile and then pick which apps you want to be multi profile. So in my case, I select "Home" profile and Messenger, Line, WhatsApp, Reddit, etc. are all switched to using my home accounts. When I select "Work" the it switches to use work accounts. Your use may vary to changing between user profiles in games, etc.
6) While not used as often, the ability to backup/restore your Android ID. Many apps use this ID to associate your configuration / data preventing you from restoring or moving an app from device to device. By maintaining the Android ID your Apps appear to have been restored to the original device and do not trigger a reset of your config/data.
Backup your apps with Titanium Backup (requires root), wipe, flash the latest version of COS12, and then restore your apps+data with Titanium Backup.
If you're using TWRP, then you can wipe system, data and cache while keeping your internal storage (files, pics, videos) untouched.
Next time, make a TWRP (NANDroid) backup before trying out a new ROM. That way, you can restore it and easily go back to your previous ROM with apps and settings intact.
You can use Titanium Backup to automate backups/restores of all your apps/settings. Requires root though. Also, Auxo and Fancy Switcher are pretty similar. I use a Nexus 6 for my personal cell, and a 5S as my work cell. The Nexus seems much more customizable, but due to Android version/device fragmentation you have to do a lot more digging at times.
