Restore Your Everything From Rom Manager Back Ups With AppExtractor For Android

The most annoying task for anyone doing any kind of flashing on a device is without a doubt having to restore apps, data, and other things that we expect to still have after a flash. Rom manager will normally allow you to create back ups of your entire phone, but it does not allow you to restore stuff individually. This is where AppExtractor by XDA member awjones comes in handy. This app is meant to be a companion for Rom Manager and as stated earlier, it will allow you to pick and choose what you want to retrieve from your saved backup images, without having to restore the whole thing. Moreover, you can retrieve anything from apps, data, contacts, and even SMS and MMS messages, which is handy for those of you who text a lot.

The app is said to work with images created using Rom Manager 5 or below, and needless to say, you must be rooted to use this. Please let the dev know if you come across any bugs or issues with the app. Also, all suggestions are welcome.

AppExtractor is a tool which will allow you to restore individual applications, data, SMS, and MMS messages from your ROM Manager backups.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
