    Modify TAR files

    I have been looking for an easy way to restore all my files when performing an advanced nandroid restore. I know about titanium backup, mybackkup pro, astro, etc. What I really want to do is copy all my apps from my last nandroid backup and paste them in the data.tar folder under app or app/private.

    My problem is that WINRAR won't let me paste anything in a tar folder unless it is a zip file. Does anyone know of a program or a way where I can simply copy all my apps and paste them in these folders? I have been looking for something but haven't been successful. Thanks in advance.

    7-zip.org will do the trick

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.
