Tutorial for backing up with Titanium Backup for Android for newbies



Tutorial for backing up with Titanium Back for newbies
As promised in my blogregarding Titanium Backup for Android yesterday, I am giving a short tutorial for using the TB.  Remember this tutorial is for pre update version, so there will be some changes in the updated version.   


First and foremost download Titanium Backup here and Pro version here.  The Pro version costs around Rs.329.12.  If you are really into rooting and modding, you’d better go for PRO version as it is more versatile.  I will assume that you are novice and have rooted your device based on tutorials online.

The first screen shot is like this :

At first glance, with all the abracadabra information, TB looks a little confusing.  But believe me it is not.  Disregard everything written on this screen and click Backup/Restore on the top next to Overview.  The next screen will look like the screen shot below :

The smiley, exclamatory marks mean nothing so don’t get confused.  If you want know what they mean, just tap Menu button, you will see a Legend tab there, tap this button, you will enter a screen like this one, giving you information about every smiley or exclamatory mark.

So, now you can see the icons mean nothing.   Head back to Back/Restore Menu.  Tap on the particular App which you want to back up.

That’s it, you are done.  The free version gives only single backup for each App.  Therefore it is wise to go for PRO version however, If you are okay with that go ahead. 

To restore a App you have to head back to the home screen, This screen will show you the App you have backed up.  Just tap restore to restore the App.  It will give you a screen like this

The other features on the App are easy to understand but however use them with caution.  Wipe Data will remove the data of that App, un-install removes the App complete. 
Freeze version which is available with Pro version is particularly good.  If you have any App which you like but don’t use and don’t want to be erased, press Freeze tab, the App  won’t be deleted and won’t run.  That way it can’t hog your memory.  This is very useful for system apps which run without need. 
The App also has a Batch Backup/Restore feature which has following categories
Backup : Restore : Backup Verification : Move/Integrate : Freeze/Defrost (Pro Version) : Manipulate Date : Un-install : Delete Backups

This is useful if you have a lot of Apps.  There is also a Send Data tab which lets you send the data to your PC via Bluetooth or email  The move/integrate tab allows you to move your Apps to SD card.    The restore option in the App is a bit lethargic in free version, therefore it is wise to go for Pro version.  It also has compression option which allows you to save memory.
