For those of you who are installing new ROMs, you will certainly want to learn to use Titanium Backup app to backup and restore your apps.

So when you install a new ROM, you can easily restore all your apps without manually installing them from the Market.

Before we begin, you will need a rooted Galaxy Note.

Step 1. Download Titanium Backup app from the Market and open the app.

Step 2. Choose “Schedules” and hit “RUN” to backup all your apps.  This will backup all your non-system apps plus its data.  So if you’ve beat all levels on AngryBirds game app, this will backup your standings on the game.

You can also schedule to backup your apps here but I simply run it when I need to backup my apps.

Where do the backups go?

The backed-up apps get stored in your internal storage or sdcard under TitaniumBackup folder.  You can also copy this folder to your harddisk or move it to another Android device for restoring.


Step 3. When you install a new ROM, you can re-install Titanium Backup app.  Then hit the Menu button->Batch.

Step 4. Scroll down to the Restore options and you will see there’s a bunch of different options for restore.  Usually, you can use “Restore missing apps with data” option to restore all your apps.

By using Titanium Backup app, you will be able to easily backup/restore all your apps while trying out different ROMs.

Also, you can get the Pro version, which allows you to restore all apps without hitting the Install button, highly recommended for those of you who tend to install a lot of apps and ROMs.

      For Market problems, go into ClockworkMod Recovery and clear cache and davlik cache, it will fix the issue. (sometimes it happens).

      For Titanium backup, not sure, did you make a backup correctly? If not, you can always restore your old ROM and try again.

      Good luck.

    Max, let me ask you something:

    So far I flashed 4 ROMS, from Criskelo, to Rocket, to KingDroid… and I am sure I will not stop there.
    There is really one thing that makes me very annoyed. From the day one I purchased my N7000, I downloaded Titanium Backup and purchased the licensed version. I backed up all the apps every single time and every single time, as soon as the new ROM was installed I would download the Titanium from the Market, I would go to backup and restore, but all I could see there were zeroes for each and every scenario. There were no backups what so ever. I keep wondering what I am doing wrong…

    If you see this, give me your comment.

    You Rock! I’m a total Android noob! AT&T Galaxy Note owner for one week. No patience to wait for ICS release from AT&T. I read your instructions carefully, Rooted my device, had to install the super user app 3 times but you mentioned that as a posibility so I kept plugging away. Installed Titanium Pro and backed up 100%. Downloaded & installed the HYFR ICS Rom without a single hiccup. Wow, I love the ICS Rom. Its running perfectly, no issues at all. You couldnt have made it any easier unless you flew to the MidWest to do it yourself.
    Hey fellow noobs, I’m a “1 week old” Adroid user, literally. iPhone/iOS convertee. Max has made this process 200% painless & simple. Follow the directions and enjoy ICS on your Galaxy Note. It ROCKS……

    Sam the Noooooob 😉

    I backed up using the backup feature in clockwork recovery and after install of rocket rom I just recovered data and it restored all photos, music, apps, wallpapers, texts, web history… Everything. Was freaking awesome 🙂

    A couple things:
    Titanium Backup says that it’s not compatible with my phone. I’ve read that there are some tablets that say that and I know the Note isn’t a tablet but . . . maybe that’s the case? Either way I have root (I checked withh Connectbot) and the SuperUser App is installed (Though it doesn’t update copy su to system failure)

    So I’m wondering if I should just put a new ROM on (I did get CWM to do a backup) and all my Apps are free so I’d just have to find them all again, not a huge deal.

    Your thoughts? Advice? Or I could just deal with the Note as is. Just not crazy about ATT trying to update and fail a few times a day . . . .

    Hi Max,

    I have an issue that I cannot resolve. My Titanium Backup does not see any app backed up in an ICS Rom if I flash a JB Rom instead. The same backup folder but zero applications backup.

    If you have any advice, let me know.


    • Max says:

      try changing the folder location in settings of Ti app.

      • Tipos says:

        Hi Max,

        Thanks for the reply. I did that already. The thing is, a JB Rom does not see the ICS backups apps. I managed only to create a new folder for JB backups, which means I would pretty much need to keep two folders (double the space required) to download all the apps under a JB ROM and back them up again.

        This is by no mean a good solution, don’t you think? There must be a way to overcome this issue. I asked the Ti Support on this one, but no answer whatsoever….

    Hello, everyone.
    I’m new at this. This is my first root and rom I’m on sweet ICS rom now. I’m trying to restore my apps but I can’t.
    when I hit the menu, it shows another list that doesn’t have batch. would you guys be so kind and help me? and every time I launch tatnium backup it say: ” go to Settings > Applications > tick Unknown Sources ” but I can’t find that either.
    Thank you,

    Just rooted my Note 10.1 AFTER the official OTA to Jelly Bean. I used a root injected .tar from an article in IBTimes with Odin. Further in the same article they recommended Goomanager and a recovery named TWRP. I was going to try but got scared off when they mention “problems with a locked or unlocked bootloader”. Have you ever used these or heard any horror stories? I want to do a CWM backup so I have a stock recovery before I attempt to flash a custom ROM. I did purchase Titanium and backed up everything with it.
