    GPA14 --> GPA15 & restore app progs

    Pete suggests not using backup/restore programs for his builds... what if I'm going from GPA14 to GPA15? Can I just wipe once and use a backup/restore like titanium safely?

    Just curious if the suggestion for not using backup progs is mainly for users going from VZW stock --> GPA.

    How do you all test the nightlies? reinstall apps every night?

    TIA!

    As per his site.

    Before downloading and installing, you need to understand that these are not "stable" builds, meaning it is likely that things may not work as expected. On the contrary, you may find it to run better than anything you have ever used. For those wanting to test and report issues, I ask the following:

    1) Be very familiar with the rooting, custom recoveries, flashing roms, etc
    2) Wipe data and cache (more than once) before installing the beta build
    3) Not restore data (start fresh, download each app individually)

    4) Use only the default kernel provided in the beta build
    5) Not modify the beta build in any way (removing apps, themeing, etc)
    6) Run only the latest baseband available (C_01.43.01P)
    7) Run only the latest nightly build available
    8) Fully read release notes/changelog before flashing beta build

    You can restore .apk of files. It's data for those apps he doesn't want you to restore.

    Even at that you can restore apk and data on GPA15. It's just that if you run into issues you won't get support.

    As it was explained to me, as long as you download everything you need app wise from the market. You're fine.

    If it's not finding any saved data (like with a game) you can restore just that data and still be able to get help.

    Also, didn't peter say you can go straight across upgrading without a wipe on his previous builds?

    I wiped data/cache, installed GPA15, and then restored only user apps + data (no system data) using Titanium Backup this morning. It seems to be running perfectly so far... much more stable and smoother than GPA14. You could always give this a try, and if it doesn't work, follow Pete's instructions for installing GPA15, or revert back to GPA14.

    I did the same thing with Tibu and have had great battery life and performance so far.
