    Titanium Backup

    Hi,

    I've got a titanium backup of all apps and system files. If I do a wipe and flash a different ROM, I've got GSB 1.9, and then install Titanium Backup again and restore, will the system data from my current ROM conflict with a new ROM?

    I'm wanting to flash a new one because GSB can't use Flash, and the only web video you can watch is on YouTube.

    What ROM would you recommend flashing? A 2.2 one, 2.3 one? Thoughts?

    The Titanium Backup part is separate from the ROM part. Outside of downloading something for Gingerbread, then downgrading (or going higher if the dev hasn't updated yet), it won't affect it.
    The easiest way is to go into "Menu>More>Create "update.zip". That way you can load the apps and data while in recovery mode. (Personally, I would recommend RZRecovery as it includes the best of both ClockWork Recovery & SPRecovery) If using RZRecovery (or CW), there would be no need to rename the file to "update.zip". Titanium will allow you to save it as something like "TitaniumBackup-3.7.2.zip" so that you won't confuse it with a ROM update.zip.

    As far as ROMs, the 2.2 (Froyo) ROMs are more stable. The 2.3 (Gingerbread) ones have the higher chance for bugs. Find one that has things you like and try it out. Worst case, you flash a new one a few days later.

    So are you saying that if I create a titanium update.zip file, I can flash a new rom then flash the apps backup afterwards before rebooting?

    And do the froyo roms require flashing the gapps package after flashing the rom? And what about the xtr cache2cache script?
