    Default TWRP 2.0 is out!



    Full touchscreen GUI!
    Backups use both cores for faster backups.
    Much more.

    Yes, just follow the directions in the link. I did move it to the root of the sd card. Worked perfectly.

    keep in mind that backups from prior versions are not restorable in the new version.

    I kind of figured that. I'm doing a new backup now. Definitely seems to be going faster than before.

    Me too. Did a backup first thing. I have a lot of apps and it only took about five minutes. This is great. Lol, did I say, "Wow!"

    Glad you found it... But for others who ask, this isn't an app you launch from the app drawer. You need to boot into Recovery.

    Default Re: TWRP 2.0 is out!

    So Ok, I get it that I can use it to backup and restore a current configuration. System / apps etc...

    Am I missing other usefullness? Is it possible to backup, flash a new ROM and restore apps and settings via TWRP?

    I''d love to be able to flash a ROM and not have to install app after app after app... setup accounts etc...


    (I just tried out Senseless for my first alternate OS version.. So I'm a noob.)

    Just as an FYI for all of you with hboot 1.5, I used the Flash Image GUI app to install TWRP2 and it worked perfectly. To answer some of the other questions here, TWRP2 is a recovery tool, which is used to install ROMs and Kernels and make backups of your current ROMs and apps. It doesn't do anything different than TWPR1, it's just a new interface. This is the first recovery interface that uses touch input for selcting your options. All other recovery tools used the volume up/down rocker along with the PWR button to make selections from the menus. I hope this help to clarify things. Happy flashing!

    So if I backup my current ROM and apps.... and I install another ROM. I cannot restore my apps? I can only restore a previous ROM and apps. There's no mechanism to restore my previous apps to a new ROM..

    Did I get that correct? What the heck to folks that flash ROMs like crazy do to keep from having to reinstall thier apps? That's a pain in the ****...

    Once you are rooted, download Titanium Backup from the Market. You can back up your apps in batches, and choose whether or not to include app data or not. Your contacts will be stored with Google if you have your account set up that way. Anyway, once you flash your new ROM, re-download Titanium Backup and then restore your apps from there. I hope this answers your question!

    Just search the Market for "app backup" and a whole mess of apps are available. Titanium Backup is what most rooters/romers use, but I imagine they all do just about the same thing.

    Helps a bunch thanks... there are a coupel of other ROMs I'd like to try out. Sensless is OK... Didn't realize how much I didnt' really mind having Sense 3.0 till it was gone... Might just have to switch to Clean ROM.

    Any other "must try" ROMs? Wish CM7 was "mo ready"

    but unless i am missing something, you can do a batch restore, but you still have to manually click "YES" and "done" for each app which can take 30 minutes if you have 100 apps or so. is there any app where i can click restore all, and walk away grab a beer and turn on the tv and come back and have it done?

    Yes you need to get the paid version. Well worth the few bucks for it.
