    Yes it works just like titanium backup or mybackup pro. I don't remember if it saves app data as well though.

    I can confirm that it does. I implemented it last month when I was running MIUI exclusively and trying each released MIUI build. dancedroid

    My experience has been that it does not save those, but I really wish it did. I am really particular about the organization of the homescreens and it's a pain to redo it after every release.

    Does anyone have any advice?

    Well to be honest I wipe before I do everything....other than with MIUI....although I do believe I wiped once and did a MIUI restore and all my settings were how I had them...but that was a couple months back and I'm not sure now.....

    I use MIUI backup now instead of titanium because its all hands free. "Set it and forget it" no having to install every app individually. Just one push of the button. I don't restore anything that google does like contacts, wifi settings or anything like that.

    Thanks. The question that remains is if there is any way to restore homescreen settings after a ROM update. I think in Titanium Backup there is an "app" called launcher. I wonder if that is backed up and restored if the homescreen icon placements will reappear?

    Two easy solutions to save Homescreen Layouts:

    1. Backup data for Launcher2 in Titanium Backup.

    2. Use MyBackup Pro to backup "Android Home".

    Either accomplish the same goal and back it easy to backup/restore Miui home screen layouts.
