Hey, guys.

First... Sorry if I am creating this in the wrong location.

Second... Just updated my ROM to JellyBelly 11.0. Before doing so, I used Titanium Backup 7.5.2 to create an update.zip off my Apps+Data. I had read this was restorable through CWR. Not having any luck with that. I have confirmed the size of the zip to be 2 + GBs, so I know the Apps+Data are in it. How do I restore it? Can this be done through TB? I don't see an option to.

Thanks for the help!

Did you look in the tibu folder when in recovery?

Open the zip and check the updater script to see if it's blank. I noticed sometimes titanium screws up the script. The flashable zip option doesn't seem to work to great with massive amounts of apps, so I've given up on it for now.

I did. Empty. The zip seems to be on my SD root.

I will check. Is there a fix? I do have the update.zip on the root of SD. 2 plus GBs and I did see TB create it when I ran it. Yet, cannot do a thing with it.

For those wondering, to restore the update.zip you need to grant titanium backup su permission first. Then reboot to recovery and flash the update.zip. Then it will work.

how do you do this??? this statement is a little confusing, because to use TiBu at all you have to grant SU permission. but what does SU permission have to do with flashing a zip in recovery?

When I tried to flash my update, it didn't work. can't remember the error but it said something like File Failed or something. i looked at the zip and the update-script was populated (ultra messy but it was there)... and the contents of the zip were all tg zips and such.... not apks and folders like i was expecting.. anyway, it didn't work.... i use TWRP
