For those of you who have rooted your newly-wedded Galaxy Note 2 and want to install custom ROMs, here’s a tutorial that can help you backup and restore all of your apps, SMS, contacts, and settings.
Most custom ROMs require you to do a data wipe/factory reset in CWM Recovery, which means all your apps, SMS text messages, contacts, and settings will be gone (although the contents of your storage are in tact such as videos and photos).
So, how do you get these things backed up and restored so you don’t have to start over from scratch?
You can use various apps like Titanium Backup app for apps, SMS backup app for SMS text messages, Google backup feature for settings (such as Wifi passwords), and GMail for contacts.
First, for contacts, I highly recommend you to make a GMail account as having a GMail account on your phone automatically backs up all your contacts and when you simply sign in to GMail, your contacts are automatically restored. Even if you don’t use GMail as main e-mail, just make a dummy GMail account for your contacts, makes your life much easier.
