    Have seen mention to the new BKapps.apk in using to restore apps after flashing ROMs. Is there any advantage of using the BKapps vs. Titanium Backups?

    Using bkapps is much faster and easier. With Titanium you have to sit there and click install and done for as many apps that you want to restore. It's time consuming. Bkapps is much simpler and more efficient.

    Not if you have the donate version. One click and you're done.

    Does Titanium backup/restore accounts like bk/rstapps does?

    Honestly, I use both. I use Chevy's script to do the actual backup stuff when doing ROM installs because it's WAY faster. But I use Titanium to do occasional redundancy backups, to move apps back and forth between the SD card and internal storage. Also, there are some other scripts in it I use.

    Do you need both, no. But I use both for the extra peace of mind and save some of those backups on my laptop for safe keeping.

    <EDIT:>Also, in the event you pull a "STUPID" like I just did and type in bkapps instead of rstapps when trying to restore, you have something to fall back on. <Palm Face> DOH!

    No, that is where Chevy's come in handy. It also restores your home screen settings.

    Actually, Titanium Backup DOES backup & restore accounts. It's listed as a "system app." Specially it is green text that says "Accounts" It has a Titanium Backup icon to the left of it. There are many other system settings you can backup/restore too. I.e. "Bluetooth Pairings," "[BOOKMARKS] Browser 2.2," "[ALARMS] Clock 2.2," "Wi-Fi Access Points," etc. :)

    Also, if you backup your launcher of choice (with data) and restore it it will restore the launchers settings/icon, but of course not widgets.

    Yes, I have the free version of Titanium Backup and can confirm that you can do that on it. :)
