    I never had trouble until the last couple of weeks with changing roms on my droid...now anytime i want to change roms i have used my backup pro and titanium backup to backup my apps and data...after i wipe and install a new rom, neither of the afore mentioned apps will restore my data! I have tried restoring using my backup pro but the apps that i restore data to will not even open, i get a force close everytime. if i use titanium it says the data is restored but is never there. i want to change roms because the gingerbread one i am using is terrible! but i don't want to lose my data from angry birds, and other such apps. Any ideas what can help me out???

    What rom are you coming from & going to? Don't restore system apps (red) in TB.

    It's because you're going back to a different versionof android. Like 2.2, 2.3,2.3.2,2.3.3

    There's an option in TB to migrate incompatible data. I used it once & it held on to certain things.

    I've had a similar issue with MyBackup Pro not working right when going from 2.2 to 2.3. However, going from 2.3.2 to 2.3.3 should not be an issue. If I was you I would contact the developer and let them know. I've used this app for a very long time now and nothing happened when I went from 2.3.2 to 2.3.3. Also, I only had an issue with about 5 apps when I went from a froyo rom to a gingerbread rom which is only because some of the apps were not updated for GB compatibility. In any case though, 2.3.2 to 2.3.3 should not be an issue and if it is, you need to contact the developer and see if he can help you out. My reason for saying it shouldn't be an issue is because 2.3.3 is still GB regardless. Going from froyo to GB, yes I could see how that could possibly have some issues. But not 2.3.2 to 2.3.3, it's the same version of the OS and shouldn't be an issue.
