    Like it says, wanted to do a FDR, backed up most apps I thought WOULDN'T affect battery or GPS, did the restore....sure enough, battery is 30% worse than before and it takes forever to lock onto GPS and 4G, when it used to go instantly.

    Any way I can tell which apps are causing this problem? I notice WidgetLocker and Swipepad regularly force close, but I don't see how those could be affecting it...

    I remember Google used to automatically reinstall apps after a reset....at this point I'm ok with losing data, but I'd hate to go through and re-download every app I had. Any way to still do this? I know a lot of people hated it so they probably took it away...

    Just an update for the hell of it, I decided to just do another FDR, this time not restoring anything from Titanium, though Google did restore A FEW apps, not all.

    Problem solved. So if this ever happens to you, I'm 97% the cause is somewhere along the way an app update caused a conflict with something else somewhere in the system and it all just falls apart from there. You can try and find the conflict yourself, or just reset.

    Sorry I just noticed this thread ...good to see that FDR helped ..I know people hate to do it but sometimes that's the best way to go ...and I agree playstore is not great when restoring apps ...used to download your apps ..most except some free ones ..now you gotta pick and choose ..
