    I had posted about this before for 5.01 and hadn't really heard anything. But is anyone else having this issue? I was running on 4.96 for the longest time but when I run a backup then wipe cache/data and install a fresh 5.1SS ROM followed by rstapps the restore doesn't seem to have fully worked. I will try and list the issues I'm seeing...

    • Apps missing
    • none of my exchange contacts show (they are enabled in the "Display Options")
    • I have 2 instances of ADW
    • I've only found 1 app so far that actually kept it's data(lost all texts, progress in games etc)
    • exchange email app asks to setup an account even though its listed in "Accounts"

    It SHOULD be finding it - but to be sure - check /sdcard/SimplyStunning for directories - the newest one likely is named 'apps'. Rename to apps-2.3.3 for 5.1 - try it again. It SHOULD pick it up, but perhaps not ...

    Thanks for the reply. Here is what I just tried.

    1. restoring to my 4.96 backup
    2. deleted the entire SimplyStunning folder from my SD card
    3. ran a fresh bkapps
    4. renamed the apps folder to apps-2.3.3
    5. wipded data/cache and installed 5.1
    6. on boot I signed into my google account then ran rstapps

    It actually seems worse off this time around. I don't even have my exchange account present now after the restore. And all of the same issues listed in the OP are still there.

    *edit* yeah it's def worse. Even that apps that did save their settings before didn't this time.

    OK - I am thinking that the problems are because it is saving app data in FROYO, and trying to restore into GINGERBREAD. I have tried this myself, and I do not get good results. This means a wipe and manual restore of apps and data ...

    Other roms don't have this script right? When switching roms, manualling reinstalling or letting google attempt to reinstall(jsut to let them reinstall 4 of them lol) is annoying. I haven't used this yet but it seems incredibly awesome. a couple clicks and it saves/restores everything. I don't think i'll be switching any time soon though :). Where is the file saved when you backup?

    Correct, this is an app I wrote myself for my ROM, only present here :)

    It saves everything to /sdcard/SimplyStunning/app-<android version)

    ie. /sdcard/SimplyStunning/apps-2.3.3
