We’ve all been in a situation before where we needed to either factory reset our phone, send it in for a warranty replacement, etc. Not a big deal by itself, but you’ve got 3 stars on 80% of Angry Birds levels, and who would want to lose that accomplishment? You want to be able to keep that data forever. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to do, and this guide will help you get started. You’ll even be able to start transferring some app data to new phones when you upgrade.
For root users, there’s no question that Titanium Backup has been the preferred backup app of choice. Its ability to sync your backups to Dropbox and Box.net has helped it become a must-have app. With its latest release, the paid version, Titanium Backup Pro, has upped the ante and added support for syncing to Google Drive. But how have they pulled this off since there is still no Android-to-Google Drive API yet? Apparently, the devs were able to use the “old” Google Docs API to get things working. Clever lads.
Google Drive support isn’t the only new feature. Hit the break for the full changelog and download link.
Do you own a rooted Android device? Do you want to root you Android device? Have you heard the words “rooted Android device”? Do you have a friend that’s an Android fanatic? I know all my friends have a friend like that.
If you’ve answered yes to any of those question, you’ve probably heard of Titanium Backup. This would be the number one app for all your rooting needs. Including backups, restore, Dalvik cleaner and Dropbox syncing.
So all you Android nuts out there who used this app on a daily basis, hit the market and update now. See the cropped screenie below for the recent changes.
P.S. – This app is for rooted Android devices only. Just incase that wasn’t made clear earlier on. :)
Depending on your phone, rooting can be a daunting task (as an early Incredible owner, I can attest to this). If you own a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, or X10 mini, and have been weary of attempting to root your phone, this may be an incentive for you to try. All you need to do is install the UniversalAndroot apk and click the root button which appears on the screen when you run the application. That’s all there is to it! There is even an unroot button if you decide the newfound power is too much for you to handle. Some of the benefits of rooting include the use of Titanium Backup, as well as free Wifi tethering (which can be found in the Android Market).
