    Hello All,

    I did some searching around but couldn't find anything relevant to this question. I recently got a Thunderbolt and I have a few applications on my old droid that I wanted to migrate over to the new phone. The thing is, the apps have available updates but I never updated them to their most recent versions since functionality changes removed features I like and use. Is there a way to migrate the apks manually (and ideally the settings/data with them), to the new phone without being forced to upgrade to the most current versions through the market? My old droid is rooted if that helps. I have titanium backups of each of the apps but I am not sure where to go from there. Any help would be appreciated.

    If your Thunderbolt is rooted you can just move the "TitaniumBackup" directory from your old SD card to your new one and use Titanium to restore. Just be careful not to restore anything that would be hardware or ROM specific.

    If you aren't rooted, the actual "apk" is located inside a tar.gz file. The names of the files are driven by the unique market name for the app.

    Copy the file to your computer and use Google to figure out how to uncompress tar.gz files in your OS.
