    It's driving me insane. I've used TitaniumBackup but a lot of times the Android Marketplace won't register them as installed...


    Any assistance is much appreciated. Thank you :)

    Which type of app; purchased or free? The purchased apps should show as "purchased" in the Market download section. Free apps will just have to be searched for and installed.

    Is the problem that after recovering your Titanium back-up the Market does not show them as installed?

    Give us a "For instance..."

    Free. All free.

    and your assumption was correct, but here's an example.


    For instance, I had installed CyanogenMod onto my Droid. I then restored through Titanium Backup my previously backed up apps+data and afterwards I rebooted. The apps were restored on my phone, huzzah! But for some odd reason only a few registered under the "Downloads" section.

    I have seen this issue after updating to rooted ESE81 so it's not CM that's the issue. It is probably a problem with TB not restoring the market links.

    The first time I backed up I used Astro. It saved all the apk install files on my card and I reinstalled them all with just a couple of clicks. It saved the apps, making it easy to get them reinstalled again but any apps with data did lose their data. ie: the keyring app lost the barcoded cards I scanned in. Titanium grabs that data too.

    Preserving the apps isnt my issue moreso than having the market recognize them (so I can receive updates for them)

    I just keep Apps2SD enabled. It usually makes ROM changes painless.

    I don't use anything to back up my apps lol and I bet I wipe data more than twice daily...no lie

    When your phone boots and you sign into your google account, DON'T open the Market once you get into the phone. Usually if you don't open the Market it will Sync all of your apps if you give it like just 5 minutes to sync...ALWAYS works for me and I need no special apps to backup my other apps...

    The donation version of TB does offer a batch process to verify the market links

    Doing things that way seems off, You have to re-download all of your apps and more importantly all of your settings and data is gone.

    I use titanium and have never had any issues using restore apps + data, market links are all fine. It's possibly a CM related issue.

    I had the same problem...all you have to do is download a random app from the market (you can uninstall it later) that you didn't have before and all your apps will show up under downloads within a couple minutes. This has worked for me every time.

    appbrain is pretty good. install it on ur phone and it syncs to their website. you can reinstall all thru that. goes thru market to install so you get updates and all that. also allows you to browse most everything in the market on ur pc.

    Open Titanium backup. Press the menu key. Select the option called "Market Doctor." That will cause Titanium Backup to make sure all your apps are synced with the Market.

    Of course it works but you lose all of your application settings(saved games, etc) and have to re-download your files. I'm not sure why anyone would want to do that but in a worse case scenario, yeah it works, your most important stuff for your phone is saved to gmail...
