Titanium Backup Update – New Features, Functionality
Welcome my Titanium Backup user amigos. Â There was an update for the revered TiBu that went live on the 6th bringing with it some new features, one I’m particularly excited about, ability to make a “Flashable Zip” of the apps AND data on your device. Â Be careful though, this has the capability of making a backup with your system data in it as well, and we all know, system data from one rom to the next doesn’t always play well together. Â I know I’ve been the victim of restoring data (mistakenly) once or twice from system images and then having all sorts of stuff break, so…you’ve been warned. Â LOL.
Many of the new features are applicable to the Pro Version (Donate version, which I recommend you get) and make buying the Pro Version really appetizing. Â Check out what else comes along with this not so incremental update:
What’s in this version:
â€¢ [PRO] Can create update.zip containing apps+data, apps only or data only. Both user & system apps are supported and the file can be signed.
â€¢ [PRO] Can upload files >150 MB to Dropbox.
â€¢ Improved “Overview of app storage use” screen, shows app location & supports refresh / click / long-click.
â€¢ [PRO] Improved fault tolerance for Dropbox upload.
â€¢ Fixed failure to un-protect backups on ext2/3/4.
â€¢ Fixed possible FC when importing a backup.
â€¢ Misc bugfixes & improvements.
â€¢ Updated translations.
I went through and made an update.zip as soon as I saw the update drop, proceeded to try it out (I figured, it’s only a full wipe, oh well), and I am jazzed it worked just like it should. Â It did take some time to build the .zip file, for me, with 120 files AND data going in, it took about 10 minutes. Â For you it may take a little more, maybe less, that really depends on your device and how much you have to stuff into that file.
