    Is there any way to restore my contacts from Titanium Backup?

    I tried to restore the data from the Contacts and Contact Storage apps and got an error message that said acore has stopped. I wiped it and now I don't know what to do next. I'm running Cyanogenmod 10 on the AT&T Galaxy S III

    Your contacts should be backed up to your Google account. So that shouldn't be a problem really, just link the two.

    I have had the same problem. My backup assist will not work for some reason, so I have to keep stock Rom if I want to keep contacts. Never had a problem with backup assist on LG revolution. Anyone else have this problem or solutions?

    easiest app to restore contacts is Super Backup and Restore. you can backup everything apps, contacts, calendar, messages etc. However if your flashing roms check out this easy way. Before installing new rom in CWM recovery do a backup of current rom. now go through your flash process. then before exiting cwm recovery go into restore, advanced restore and select the backup you just did then select restore data only. then reboot your phone when its done. check that out. every app, every setting you had on your last phone is done. you don't even need to go through the setup process as youre already logged into gmail. makes changing roms a breeze!

    I thought restoring system data from one ROM to another could send phone to boot loop hell...?

    Not data. I've personally done it a ton of times! However I've only done it jellybean to jellybean. Never tried ics to jellybean or the other way around.

    This is in the Galaxy S3 Forum. I have never done the restore data on an LG revolution. I do it when I switch roms on my Verizon S3. As for the error you're getting i'm not sure. Can you flash a rom at all? not one of your backups...

    Just to be clear. This works on my Verizon S3. I believe I was taught by someone on AT&T s3 how to do this. I have no clue if it will work for any other versions or any other phone. I don't see why it wouldn't if done correctly. Do a backup right before you install a rom(should be a norm anyway) then go through your flash process(wipes and format system, flash rom) then go to restore, advanced restore, data only. it will do it's thing and then you reboot the phone. works like a charm everytime for me. again on my verizon galaxy s3.

    Re: Is there any way to restore my contacts from Titanium Backup?

    I'm completely confused by this thread. Why all the tools when contact information backup is essentially native to android via Gmail account? I have had several phones and I never use backup assist or anything else; never lost contact info. The tools being discussed are tied to the phone, carrier, sd card, whatever... Gmail is in the cloud. Not trying to be funny, but why would anyone use tools to backup contacts?
