    Hi,

    I installed the fission rom and of course made a backup before but I cannot find backup assistant anywhere? i tried downloaded a droid 2 system dump that had backup assistant in it but every time i try to install it it just says application not installed. I dont know what to do? I can go back to my nandroid backup but i like this rom I just want my contacts back! gmail didn't sync my contacts before so thats out the window! I also tried Titaniumbackup but for some reason my contacts are not restored.

    Please help me out here this is my first rom I have installed. love it though!

    Its an aosp rom so it doesn't have backup assistant. If you can't get them from Google I would suggest restoring your backup and exporting them to the SD card.

    thank you so much I was thinking about that. so let me ask if this is what i should do:

    1. restore nandroid backup

    2. backup using titanium everything

    3. re install fission rom

    4. re install titanium backup

    5. restore with titanium backup

    That is right, but I would skip out on /system data at all cost, especially since you are going from a blur to a stock rom. Maybe look onto the market for something that can help you out.

    Well, restoring system data in between roms is a no-no, but if it's working fine now then have at it. XD

    You missed the most important step. While your back to stock blur open your contacts app and hit menu, and then import/export and then export contacts to SD.

    Once you have fission all loaded up, you'll open your contacts app and hit menu and then import/export and then choose import from SD. It will scan the SD card and find the file you exported. Then you can just restore em.
