    First, I'd like to say that I have flashed a few ROMs and Kernels when I had my OG Droid. I never used any sort of application backup program and always had to restart games and reconfigure settings etc.

    Now I have a Nexus which I am planning to unlock, root, and ROM pretty soon, but I don't want to go through the hassle of having fresh installs of all of my applications each time I switch a ROM.

    Any recommendation / guides on the best ways to handle this on the Nexus?

    Titanium Backup will work once you are rooted. MyBackUp Pro will work for both non rooted & rooted.

    If you use Wug's one click method, I believe it offers the option to backup your apps.

    Thank you! I assume with the apps I download them, back up my apps, and then when I wipe data/cache and install a new ROM I then redownload TitaniumBackup or MyBackUp and they will have the option to restore?

    Yes, that is correct, sign into your google account & download your backup app. TiBu allows you to store to dropbox as well & I think MBP, stores to a server type cloud as well. Both offer help guides if I remember right ... There is also ultimate backup by jrummy that works for both root & non root...
