    Sup guys?!!

    I will like to store all my apk's from my app's to my computer in case somthing bad happen to my phone. I've been trying to find the apk files using root explorer but I only see the phone general apk's.

    Does anybody knows where the app apk's are stored on the phone so I can pick them and store them on my pc for backup?

    Thanks in advance!

    /data/app/ should be where most of the market APKs are.

    /data/app-private/ has some sometimes too. Usually not many in there though.

    /system/app/ is where the system apps are, but themed market apps make it here sometimes too, if you wanted to back those up too you could.

    If you have adb installed [TOOL] Android Commander 0.7.9.7 - Froyo Ready! - xda-developers <-- that app is pretty sweet. I use it quite often. Cuts out the middleman of needing Root Explorer to copy them to sdcard, then copy them off phone. You can pull directly off of the phone. Actually it has an aplication backup option. Or if you prefer to type the commands, you can always do that via ADB, but I am more of a GUI person myself.
