Titanium Backup Updated With Android 4.3 Support

Titanium Backup

Titanium Backup has received a significant update on Google Play bringing initial support for Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the implementation of data exclusion for Media Storage and multiple bug fixes to improve the fluidity of the application.

When Google released the factory images for Android 4.3, Android-savvy users rushed to root their handsets and install the brand new OS, many of them had to back up the entire contents of their device and the most logical and reliable back up solution, without having to connect to a computer, is Titanium Backup.

However, the main problem that users encountered after they had installed Android 4.3 emerged when they attempted to restore their backups. Due to the former lack of support for the new operating system users found Titanium Backup crashed whenever they embarked on a restoration, but thanks to version 6.1.0 of the app, basic support has been added for Android’s 4.3 Jelly Bean; meaning that you will now be able to restore your device without any problems.

Data exclusion for Media Storage has also been added, which automatically excludes the backup of caches and system files that are stored on microSD cards. This feature is enabled by default, so if you want to back up your caches you will need to disable it in the settings.

The full changelog can be read below:

  • Can specify power conditions on scheduled jobs.
  • Added initial support for Android 4.3.
  • Added data exclusion for Media Storage (ie: gallery cache) (enabled by default).
  • Fixed “convert to system app” issue on Android 4.2+ (some converted apps failed to work).
  • Fixed issue with XML call log restore: the names weren’t getting restored on some platforms (eg: HTC One).
  • Fixed Android 1.5 support (was broken in TB
  • Updated translations.
