    It already does not back itself up as an app... that wouldn't make sense, you would need to install it to restore the backup anyway...lol

    Ahh, yes I see. I saw my Titanium Backup PRO listed in the apps and thought that was the entire app. That is just my Pro key. Is there any need to back that up? I guess it won't hurt...

    EDIT:
    Does that update.zip include the labels? I assume that is part of the data of the app?

    One more question please?

    How is the Page/Desktop layout saved? Does a TWRP backup save the desktop/pages where you have set everything up? Is that part of the internal ROM?

    Label data is stored on the sd and TiBu will load it automatically when you run.

    For your homescreen setup, most of us ROM flashers will use a 3rd party launcher which can backup and restore your setup on its own. I use Nova Launcher, many like Apex as well, they are fairly similar.

    I'm new to the android scene and can't believe how helpful people are, so firstly, thanks!

    I had a question about the original guide with regards to backing up. How do I keep the user apps backup from being wiped? I just don't understand where to store it locally?

    I thought tibu might protect it, but of course I was wrong. I had a copy on my PC so it wasn't too bad, but would prefer a quicker process and more importantly, I wanna wrap my head around the concept for future reference.

    Welcome, I'm a noob here as well. But I've just rooted, installed Noteorious Prime Rom, and backed everything up via TWRP and TiBu the past few weeks.

    After I backed up my apps with TiBu, I plugged my phone into my computer with the usb cable and copied the TitaniumBackup folder to a location on my pc as a backup. I'm pretty good about backing stuff up. And the place I put the folder is also being backed up from my pc to an external drive once in a while. So, I have it in two places.

    Actually 3.. I also used TiBu to Sync it with Google Drive. That took longer since it's over wifi and their servers may not be too fast. But it's free. You just go into the TiBu settings and setup Google Drive. Then you go to TiBu Schedules an do a Google Drive Sync.

    TiBu backups are saved to your internal sd, which isn't wiped by a custom recovery when you wipe data/factory reset before flashing a ROM. TiBu will locate them automatically when you boot up the new ROM and install it, or flash the TiBu zip after flashing the ROM.

    Thanks for the info. I couldn't get tibu to find any backups so I just assumed it got wiped and my only option was to get a backup off my PC. I'm going to give it another try, thanks again.

    Is there any reason to use this if you don't plan on restoring data with apps? Like why would I let TiBu restore everything instead of the play store? Play store I just chose sync google account, finish set up and everything come to me. TiBu I have to download from Play Store, bring it up, hit restore, and have to click "accept" and click "install" or something like that for all 80 apps. It goes quickly but having to push a button 160 time just to reload all my apps is such a pain in the ***.

    The main reason to use TiBu is that you can restore your apps with data.. so if doing that is not important to you then no, it's not something you need. Fyi, the paid version restores your apps all at once without you having to tap anything between them. Overall even for my non-data apps I find it much faster to use TiBu rather than the Play Store, and it can be done without any data connection. Again the update.zip you can create within TiBu lets you flash it directly after the ROM so it is installed when you first boot up, rather than needing to log in and use the Play Store at all.

    Oooooo don't think I read where you can flash it while restoring everything else. That seems like a lot of help.

    I'm seriously considering abandoning TiBU for Carbon. TiBu has been (mostly) very good to me since I started rooting and flashing, but Carbon's UI is infinitely more user friendly. Also it works with non-rooted phones too, so I can backup my wife's phone.

    No offense to TiBU's dev, but Koush showed how it should be done.

    A couple of questions about Carbon.

    1. I tried the beta but couldn't find a way to checkmark all of the apps. I quickly abandoned it. Is there a "check all" option now?

    2. Does it back up wifi passwords and login passwords like TiBu? Some of my passwords are 50 characters of gibberish and typing that in is no fun at all.

    Hi guys.. Carbon's all good, great for non-root users and good for everyone to always have more options... just kindly requesting that we keep this thread on topic with TiBu only questions/issues/etc.. by all means I welcome you to start a new thread discussing Carbon, as I haven't had a chance to look into it myself either. Thanks for understanding!

    Ok,

    Here's a TiBu question...

    After backup (2am) I have the batch program call the feature to back up the files to Dropbox. That almost never succeeds. I have to do it manually. And, then it almost never succeeds on first try. It takes many tries.

    To get a clean backup I went to Dropbox and manually deleted my TiBu folder. Then I went into Tibu and told it to sync with Dropbox. It informed me that there was 1.2 gb to back up and started doing so. It would run for a period of time and stop. So, I'd start it up again. And, again it would run for a while and stop. Each time it would copy some files. The length of time it would run before stopping would vary. Some times it would run for 5 seconds. Other times it would run for 5 minutes. It chipped away at that 1.2 gb.

    All in all, it took me 3 days to and literally dozens of "runs" to get all the data backed up. This happened on wifi, on 4G, at home, at work. It didn't matter where I was it would run/stop, run/stop, run/stop until it was all backed up. Very frustrating that it wouldn't stay connected.

    Can one of you legends explain the difference between Backup new user apps & newer app versions, followed by Redo backups for modified data? I have both checked for scheduled backup etc, and so I am doing this but i'm not completely sure why. I did the first backup, which took a while, but then doing the second one took a matter of seconds as there were no changes. Are these two things the same?

    Thank you!

    The first one backs up new apps and app versions.. The second re does the data portion of your app backups in case you have used them and it needs updating... Not sure how to explain it more clearly

    Probably it's been moved, the UI has been updated/changed a bit since I wrote this. It should be default anyway in the paid version, as I noted. Otherwise look around for it

    In the latest version-6.0.4, it's actually still there. Once you're in preferences, "App processing mode" is at the bottom. As the guide says, it should be set at "Auto Direct" anyway.

    So I had to flash the stock image for 4.1.1 (wiping everything from my sd card in the process). I do have my TitaniumBackup folder backed up to my desktop, but I forgot to copy it back into sd card after flashing the stock image.

    You can probably guess what I'm going to say next but.. I went ahead and flashed my update.zip without the TitaniumBackup folder in there. So how do I go about uninstalling the app (since it's installed as a system app) so I can copy the folder onto my phone first this time and start again from scratch with the update.zip?

    I think I followed the directions to get the backup made pretty well, and I just flashed CM10 stable version to my ATT GS3. The problem I'm having with TiBu now is when I go to do the batch restore, I continually get the error that the current backup location("/storage/extSdcard/titaniumbackup") cannot be accessed. I think I did the mount system part incorrect. I'm using TWRP recovery. Any help?

And even with a fresh install I was still getting that "insufficient free storage space" error whenever I tried to make a backup.

    So I copied the backup folder to my computer and tried to delete it from my phone. And I got an error in ES File Explorer that the files couldn't be deleted. Then I fired up TiBu and told TiBu to delete all backups. It said that it succeded but the backup files didn't go away, and when I restarted TiBu it found them again. I tried to move the backup files to a different folder on my SD Card, but got denied again. So I just renamed the "TitaniumBackup" folder that they are in.

    SUCCESS!!!!

    Once there was no more "TitaniumBackup" folder. Then Titamium Backup starting working and I was able to make a new backup. I still don't know why it thought I had no free storage space; my best guess is that "TitaniumBackup" folder where the backups are stored got corrupted or something. Anyway, I have a working backup so now it's time to get flashing.
    for reference I had the same issue. Only solution for me was to delete the titanimBackup folder, recreate it with a file explorer app (used the one from CyanogenMod), start tiB, go to Preferences > Backup location and select the newly created folder. Only then TiB accepted again to backup something and the message about insufficient free storage was gone.
