Learn how to backup Android with Titanium Backup

The first requirement to be able to use Titanium Backup is to be root users as we have indicated a few lines ago. To do this, if you are not yet, we recommend visiting our dedicated section where you will find a large number of tutorials to perform the procedure safely and easily on practically all Android devices on the market. After this we will download the application from Google play.

As you will see, it is free, but in the application we will have the option to buy the pro version for $ 5.99, something that is not really necessary for what we are going to show you here today, although we will get some advantages such as integration with Dropbox to save backup copies and other more advanced functions that are perfect for more expert users from Android.

When you first open Titanium Backup, you will be asked about the granting of permits, to which obviously we must answer yes. After this we will find a somewhat disorganized menu but that we will try to clarify. In the tab general We will see the current status of root access (it should be green) and what functions we have available in our trial version. The second menu, Copy / Restore will present all the applications that can be copied in order to avoid losing our data, being able to copy or restore each of the copies separately, something quite tedious and can be improved as we will see below.

What happens if we want to perform the backup multiple apps at once? The easiest way is to press the button Settings (It will depend on whether or not your Android has physical buttons) and we will batch tasks. In this menu we will have all the tasks available to perform and, to make a backup, we will choose Backup all user applications + system data, although there are many other tasks such as redoing old copies (to return to a stable state after the installation of an app that conflicts, for example, restoring missing applications with or without their data …). In this way, opting for this option, we will copy all the apps with their data (that is, we will not lose the saved games of games like Candy Crush) and those user data that interest us such as the calendar, the paired Bluetooth devices …

This has several advantages but also disadvantages. The The main advantage is that if we do a factory reset, having previously made this type of copy, we will have the phone again as we had it together before the restart. However, we must warn that copying user data (this does not normally happen with applications) can cause problems if we have changed ROMs, since they may be different internally and that this data actually corrupts the operating system , leaving the phone unusable. Therefore, special care must be taken, although the most normal thing is that nothing happens.

Well, after choosing the relevant option, a menu will appear where we will choose all those elements that we want to copy. The best thing to do is, as we have said, uncheck those apps that come in red. In the event that we are interested in the selection, we will press the green button in the upper right and the procedure will begin, notifying us once it is finished and being able to fully use the terminal while doing it.
