Titanium backup and Titanium Backup Pro is a great app which lets you backup and restore your android device's data with extreme case. Download Titanium backup from play store, it is free. But Titanium Backup Pro is paid, it requires 6$. I am sharing the apk file of it's Pro version. The link is

Download it and install, it will convert your titanium backup app into a premium version.

From the user “Preferences” (Menu/Preferences) make sure that you change the “Max backup history to more than 1″ this will allow you to have more than one back up version before the app overwrites the previous backup…. useful if you upgrade an app then realise that it was not such a good idea.

Another tip is that if you have a certain app that you want to retain the backup and user data for then you can simple go the the main app window, select the “Backup / Restore” button then tap on the app that you want to permanently keep a back up of, then tap on one of the backups, then select “Protect this backup”. now this version of your back up will always be kept and never over written.

How to use Titanium Backup Pro:


Lets assume that you have installed Titanium Back up (PRO) and that you now need to make your first system and user apps back up. Then open the app and then press the icon at the top right of screen which looks like a page with a tick mark on it, then choose “Backup all user data + system data” from the list and hit the “RUN” button to the left of it.

For backing up you are now done. (Note that if you are a frequent ROM flasher then you might
only want to ever back up the USER APPS and data as restoring System apps across ROM is
the main culprit of errors from using TItanium Backup. If you decide only to make user app back
up then follow this by selecting the “Backup all system data” and on the next screen select the
“Deselect all” button, next go through the list of system apps and select only the green coloured
items (see below the list of system apps/settings that I recommend you ONLY restore across


After you have done a full wipe and then installed a new ROM you now want to RESTORE your
applications and all of their user data, things like settings and user information. Titanium back up
is an excellent tool for this but you MUST be careful not to restore any SYSTEM apps or data
otherwise you can run in to trouble and it will cause many “FC’s”. According the the Official TB
user guide: Again, if you’re restoring them from a different phone/ROM, enable the “System data
migration” option (found under Menu/Preferences and half way down the screen list to the
“Restoration Settings” section).
Then open the app and then press the icon at the top right of screen which looks like a page with
a tick mark on it, then select BATCH and then scroll down to the RESTORE section and select
“Restore missing apps with data”. by default the “App+Data” will be checked, leave this option as
is for this BATCH task. Or you can review the list and manually Deselect one by one
any apps that you did not want to restore on this occasion.

Or you can review the list and manually Deselect one by one any apps that you did not want to
restore on this occasion. Or if you only want to restore a few of the apps then “Deselect All” and
then manually add each app that you want to restore when you have completed your selections
then hit the “Run the batch operation” button at the top.
It will take some time for the BATCH to run and re install all of your user installed apps. after the
batch has completed then you are ready to install just a few of the other GREEN coloured
items from the main menu.
This time from the main application window select the top middle “Backup / Restore” button. Now BE CAREFUL here, i ONLY RESTORE the following options and have never
had any problems HOWEVER if you try to restore Accounts and Settings and some other green
coloured items you can run in to trouble with FC’s….you have been warned but test this out for
yourself and report back if you have any success.

What to RESTORE safely:

Bluetooth pairings (User data only)
[Calandar] (User data only)
[Alarms] Clock (User data only)
[Desktop] HTC Sense (User data only) - NOTE it must be the same version as the previous ROM
check the currently installed version against your last back up version number, if they match
then you can restore and it will put back ALL your old desktop short cuts and screens (but NOT
any of your widgets)….very handy one.
[Bookmarks] (User data only)
[User Dict HTC] (User data only)
[User Dict] (User data only)
Wi-Fi Access Points (User data only)

What NOT to Restore:

Application Widgets
Country, Language, Time zone
[E-Mail Accounts]
[SMS/MMS Pref....]
You will now need to REBOOT your device for the system items to take effect.
Now a little tip that i use, as you will be updating your apps and settings will change almost daily
why not set up the Schedule feature so that your apps and also your changed settings data are
all backed up every night?

Here is How:

1. Open the application then select the top right button “Schedules”
2. Now enable the first option and select “Redo backups for modified data” select every day
and also change the time to during the nighttime or other suitable time for you when you
are not going to be using your phone
3. Select the second option and change it to “Backup all new apps & newer versions” and
again select the best time for yourself.
That’s it, you are done so now you can rest assured that every night your current apps and user
data will be backed up and ready for the next days flashing of new ROM’s.
And one final tip that i use………when setting up a ROM from scratch, do not sign in to the
Google account until AFTER you have RESTORED all the user Apps with Titanium as the Market
will try to restore all your apps from your Market user history, which is OK but will conflict with
your BATCH RESTORE using TItanium Backup.

You should also make a copy of your installed version of Titanium Backup App to allow you to
restore it on the new ROM without having to go to the Market.

That's it.
Have a smiling day :)
