If you have an Android mobile phone and you’ve rooted it, there is a high-risk that something might go awry. That is just the nature of having the Android phone rooted, especially more so, when you install a custom firmware.
Custom firmware, especially those that are not made well, come with a lot of bugs and it can render your phone inoperable. Now, you might have some important files and applications with data that are very important to you and that you do not want to lose, ever.
So, what are you going to do? You have to frequently backup all of your applications and files. There are many backup applications for Android mobile phones but there is only one backup application that stands out from the rest.
The Titanium Backup for Android mobile phones is an amazing backup utility app that allows you to not only backup your important apps and data but it can also do a plethora of things as well.
This article will be centered on the Paid (or PRO) version of the app, although, you can use this app for free (but with only a few features).
Back in the day, I always install custom firmware because of the functionality and uniqueness they bring. Installing a custom firmware is like installing just an ordinary firmware in that you have to go back installing your apps again.
Now, that is a pretty normal thing, but by doing so, it is not only time-consuming, it can also be quite cumbersome. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to just save all of your apps and restore them without hassle?
Fortunately, the Titanium Backup for Android can do that. Before flashing any custom (or official) firmware, all you have to do is head on to the Titanium Backup interface and perform the backup procedure. All of the backups will be stored on your microSD card.
After installing your custom firmware, all you have to do is redownload the Titanium backup app for Android mobile phones and install it. Then, just press restore, click all the applications you want to be restored, and then that’s it! You basically just have to wait until the restoration process is finished and that’s it!
The Titanium Backup for Android mobile phones is not only limited to backing up apps; it can also back up important call logs, phonebook entries, and text messages as well. If you want to check the file integrity of each backed up file, there is also an integrated file checker if you want.
There is also a plethora of other options that this app can do. You can also “Freeze” the apps to stop it from working if you suspect they have an odd behavior. You can also set the app to do scheduled backups if you want.
The Titanium Backup for Android is an amazing backup utility to have. It also has integration with some of the most popular cloud storage services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, and more. Be sure to upload all of your backups from time to time in these services to ensure you won’t run into problems.
Also, if you’re planning to upload files to your cloud storage service, be sure to get a mobile phone signal booster to ensure that your uploads will not be interrupted.
The Titanium Backup for Android costs only $4 and is available in the Google Play Store.
