I have been using CM Browser for couple of years. A couple of months ago I set Titanium Backup ( Pro - version
7.5.0) to backup on schedule as shown below ( 3 as maximum backup versions ):
After the last update of CM Browser, which I didn't like, I uninstalled it, being sure I could switch to the earlier version. Surprisingly, I didn't find CM Browser backup !
To doubly verify, I installed CM again and took a manual backup (by force-running the schedule) and sure enough it didn't show up – despite of the "backup completed" toast being shown (no error message in between either). And yes, I've verified that I didn't have any filters set that might be hiding it.
It can't be a version issue of Titanium as the previous version should have retained 3 backups.
Why is this so? What makes apps "unbackable" ? How do I fix this?
Device: Moto X Play, 6.0.1, stock, rooted
As suggested by Izzy in comments, searched the backup directory and found backups of Browser. Installing the apk from there got me my old Browser version but minus the bookmarks ( Data for
apkalways included in preferences).Backup of newer version also present in
Mailed the developer. Will post updates but meanwhile ideas to troubleshoot are welcome
Edit 2: when I took a logcat for the second time (in the process of installing app and forcing a backup), TiBu mysteriously decided to show me CM Browser with all previous versions and data intact. I haven't the faintest idea and will post an answer if the developer clarifies. I have mailed him the logcat. Pastebin here
