This is due to the 'Mount namespace separation' setting in SuperSU being turned on (by default). Untick that, reboot and try your Titanium Backup operation again. This happens because the permissions to app-created folders are restricted in newer Android versions, I believe. Ironically, I didn't have this issue on Marshmallow-based CM13, but I did face it ...

It worked fine for me. I recently replaced my Sony Xperia Z with a Nexus 5. I copied over the Titanium Backup files and restored them, including Google Authenticator. No problems to report, I can still connect correctly to sites and apps requiring a code.

It's very important that you here choose to scan your whole device and ...

The FAQ of Titanium Backup about crypthography states that you just need the passphrase to recover any backup. That must mean that the private key file is stored along with all of your backups, because it could never work in any other ways. The big problem with that FAQ is that it should states this explicitly IMHO so to make things clearer for us users. I ...

This happens due to some service change in kitkat. Some research on google showed that there is an app available to modify the platform.xml file.

At TB's startup it always displayed a warning that SuperSU's namespace separation feature "might not work reliably on some platforms". Well, I never faced any problems until a recent SuperSU update... So disabling that option in SuperSU and rebooting solved the "insufficient space" on my OnePlus One/CM12.1. This was the obvious solution before fiddling ...

As @Dakatine hints, the master key is pre-pended on the file, which is then concatenated by encrypted content. I didn't bother researching the TB_ARMOR_V1 file format, because someone already has made a python command line tool https://github.com/phyber/TiBUdecrypter

When you flash a custom rom and you are coming from different version of android, restoring app data may cause some problems. If you restore your Whatsapp's data may cause crashing that App. So its better not to backup data,backup just that Application. If you are flashing same android version it may not cause issues. And you don't need to re-register.

TiBu stores its backups in a folder on your SDCard (either the internal or the external, depends on what you have and how you've configured it). So you can simply copy that entire folder over to your PC before applying the factory-reset. Just check the root of your SDCard(s) for a folder named TitaniumBackup. After the factory reset, the folder should still ...

When you initially set up two-factor authentication you should have been given a set of 10 single-use passwords and told to store them somewhere safely for use if the authenticator on your phone was unavailable. Alternatively if you don't want to use one of them, log into your Google account before the reset and turn on SMS message authentication for two-...

It looks like that software doesn't back up apps or data, it just copies off what is in your internal SD storage (the general file storage area for pictures, downloads, etc.). Backing up apps and their data requires root because apps and their data are protected from non-privileged users — primarily, other apps. This prevents malware from accessing ...

To do a backup like you want, you can just copy everything from /data/data except the lib directories/symlinks (they will fail when you want to restore/push them). A very easy thing to do is adb pull /data/data and then delete all the lib files (as symlinks are only files but those refer to directories). Upon restore you can install each app, using adb ...

Titanium Backup is able to read from Nandroid backups, so you can use it to restore parts from them -- and then use Titanium Backup again to backup those restored parts. However, as there's no Titanium Backup for PC, this has to be done on an Android device. If your goal however is to separate some apps from a Nandroid backup, there are other ways to ...

You could achieve this in two ways: have Titanium create an update.zip with the wanted data. This you could then simply flash, and you are done Titanium also supports a kind of "tags": Setup a filter matching all the stuff you want, and save the selection as a tag (or tag the wanted items manually). Then select by tag and backup. Make sure to have Titanium ...

I would like to add something in the above answers. System apps cannot be deleted in a full factory reset, unlike user apps.

This appears to be because you can schedule backups within Titanium Backup, and when backing up the 'Sleep As Android' app Titanium Backup may/will kill the application in order to perform the backup. By doing this the app will no longer track you sleep or wake you up at the required time. I don't think that simply having Titanium Backup installed will break ...
