How to transfer contacts, phone log, other app data, etc from Gingerbread to ICS
This forum has been an invaluable resource since I've had my Droid 3. Thanks to everyone for their contributions! I have been using the Steel Droid Gingerbread flavor. Now I am trying to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich but I have a hit a wall and I can really use some help.
I have searched both this forum and through Google but I am not finding a solution to my problem. I am sure I am missing something obvious and / or over-complicating things. I would really appreciate some help and direction.
Here's my situation:
I have Titanium Backup Professional which I use for my backups on my Droid 3. I have no problems upgrading to Ice Cream Sandwich form Gingerbread. When I restore the Gingerbread backup from Titanium to the Ice Cream Sandwich system, I end up with errors in the media app, the Google play store and the device will get stuck in an infinite boot sequence. To get the device usable again, I have to restore to factory default and I am left with the default Ice Cream Sandwich setup.
I have since read that it is not a good idea to restore the Gingerbread backup to the Ice Cream Sandwich system because there are too many differences. That makes sense to me but it leaves me stuck and confused for what I need to do next.
How can I get my apps, app data, phone log, text messages, email settings, wifi hotspots, etc setup in the Ice Cream Sandwich system? Is there a different way to restore the Titanium Backup that will work for this specific situation? I would like to upgrade and not go back to Gingerbread if I don't have to but I need all of my apps and data or it wont' be worth it.
