Titanium Backup Updated To Version 5.6.0, Adding Ability To Restore From ADB Backup Files, Other Improvements

Those of us with rooted devices and a penchant for flashing ROMs know just how valuable a great backup tool can be. Titanium backup is undoubtedly one of the most popular (and most useful) backup tools around, and it just got an update to version 5.6.0.

The update, which had been floating around as a "test version" prior to official release, brings a few UI enhancements and fixes, an updated set of translations, and improved "Market Doctor" and "Force Attach" functions to repair broken links between apps and the Play Store.

[Updated x2] Titanium Backup Adds Google Drive Backup Option

After the long-awaited launch of Google Drive, it was only a matter of time before users began seeing integration with Android apps. While there's no official Android API for Google Drive just yet, many devs suspected that Drive's Java API would work just fine, despite a confusing statement on Google's developer site:

Titanium Backup Updated To Version 4.8.4 With Integration - Finally Gives Those 50GB Accounts A Purpose

Titanium Backup, a widely popular backup solution for root users, got an update today to version 4.8.4, adding a handful of improvements and functions, not the least of which being support for backup syncing.

Titanium Backup [Pro] Can Now Restore Apps From ClockworkMod 5 Backups

Well, this didn't take long. A little while ago, a new app called AppExtractor that can restore individual apps from ClockworkMod backups appeared in the Market seemingly out of nowhere. The app was welcomed by many of us who do custom ROM flashing here and there, sometimes wishing we could only restore a few little things from our Nandroid backups rather than having to restore whole ROMs.

As of today, Titanium Backup, sort of a de facto app in the app backup/restore business on Android, can now do the same thing.

AppExtractor Can Pull Apps, SMS, and MMS From Nandroid Backups - It's Like ROM Manager Had A Baby With Titanium Backup

How many times has this happened to you: you're getting ready to flash a new ROM, so you drop in on the SD Card, reboot into ClockworkMod Recovery, do a Nandroid backup, and proceed with the installation, only to realize that you forgot to backup your apps. That has happened to me more times than I care to count, and flashing a backup just to do a Titanium Backup is insanely tedious.
