I'd like to know how I can set up my android 4.1.2 (Galaxy S2 I 9100) that it will install all my apps in the Play Store (the one you can see when you click "my apps").
I think it was CM 10.1 where it worked sometimes and in stock rom I did not noticed it.
Is there a way to configure my Galaxy S2 so I don't have to install the apps manually?
I hope I asked clearly enough ;)
Thanks so far !

Edit: I reseted my phone, logged into samsung account to google account.
I always allowed to back up and restore my data. But the apps haven't been installed automatically.
And that was the only thing I tried. I did not try any ADB recoveries. And I did not use any backup third party apps or the stock rom backup.
I hope this information is enough. I fnot please tell me what information you additionally need!
Thank you again!

  • What "does not work"? The Backup/restore via ADB described there, or the Google backup? I'd recommend you update your question with some more details, to enable us to help you.

Make sure you have checked Automatic Restore and Backup my Data in Settings>Backup & Restore.

And also sync your google account right after a reset. You'll notice that all of your apps are reinstalling in the background.

Hope it helps.


I guess it has to do with what you had on your device installed right before you wipe & flashed a new Rom.

Google remembers last apps and all
