I have just cracked my Nexus 4 screen, which seemingly has completely destroyed the digitizer, as I cannot interface with my screen anymore.
Luckily, I had a TB schedule that ran on my nexus 4 every day, which backed my apps+data and pushed to box cloud storage. So, what I did with my new nexus 5 is I went through the unlock, root, and rom flashing process. Then, I installed Titanium Backup and synced from my box folder, which I confirmed with ES that all of the app/data that I need is indeed there (apks, .properties files).
The problem that I am encountering is that my "restore missing apps + data" does not show many of the applications that I need to restore. I am not really sure why this could happen, unless maybe TB is noting the fact that the apps state that the device is "Nexus 4" in the properties file? (probably not, all of them do) I have attempted to refresh TB, which did cause some more apps to appear, but I still am missing a huge chunk of applications. To further complicate matters, when I go to my "delete backups for uninstalled applications" menu, I see a couple of the missing applications ( but not all )... only they seem to be missing icons and do not have fully resolved application names ( instead listing their com.x.x.x package names).
I'm quite confused.
What I'm trying now : I have a computer that (hopefully) has been auth'd for ADB access, so I'll try to pull the TB folder from my actual phone and see if I can overwrite the files and restore them that way.
