Fix for Titanium Backup Issues on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Every new device has its own set of issues, and the recently released Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is no exception. First, there was that benchmark scandal. Next, came region locking (which has since been taken care of by XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire). Now, many users have also reported difficulties restoring application backups using the popular Titanium Backup.

Thankfully, XDA Senior Member vodkinagdan quickly found a temporary fix for the issue that could be executed via terminal. The issue comes from damaged SElinux file markers in /data/data, which are broken after running a data restore using Titanium Backup. The fix, which is described in this thread by Senior Member danieljamie works by acquiring root access and then executing the following command in terminal: restorecon -R -v /data/data. Unfortunately, however, this has to be done after every set of application restores.

To make life easier for everyone, XDA Recognized Developer -viperboy- created a quick app that gains root access and runs the command listed above. This can potentially be a huge time saver for those restoring a large number of apps frequently, since the command has to be executed after every data restore using Titanium.

We can only hope and assume the developers of Titanium Backup will fix the issue quickly. Until then, make your way over to the original thread for the temporary fix.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
