    I can't figure out how to move or flash the files in my sd card into my phone. I can see the file but I don't know how to get it to my app page please help.

    To restore anything from Titanium Backup you have to go into the application Titanium and select a Batch Operation - to restore a Nandroid Backup you have to boot into recovery by holding the Power and X key down from a Powered Off state and after in recovery selecting nandroid/restore - An .apk file is basically an application in file format, if you have one on your SD card with Root Explorer you can select and install it - plus so much more, Root Explorer is by far one of the best tools there is, search and explore within it, just be careful what you change and modify - if you have any questions, just ask :)

    Go into the application Titanium from within your app drawer and select backup/restore - find Angry Birds in the list and select "restore"

    Before you Flash a new ROM go into Ti Backup and select your phones soft "settings" key and select "batch" and then "backup all user apps and data" upon flashing your new ROM you go back into Ti and select "batch" again and choose "restore all user apps and data"

    There is not a lot that Root Explorer isn't capable of - you can move apps from data/app to system/app - access all files within the system - mount RW/RO copy and paste - set permissions - clear cache - longpress items and send them using the various gmail/fbook/dropbox/picassa/twitter applications - plus so much more
