    I see that you are discouraging the use of Titanium Backup. So…
    1. Do you mean we shouldn’t use it to import apps/data from a previous ROM?
    2. Is it ok to use TB once 14.1 is installed and just make backups of new stuff on the ROM (vs importing old stuff to the new ROM)
    2. Is there another backup program that will work better so that when I upgrade the ROM to your next release, it will be easier to migrate apps/data?

    Thanks!

    The reason being it may break the system after installing the Apps and data from the older Android version.

    Now a days most of the application developers design their apps to store the user data in cloud.
    If not such as WhatsApps: most of the images and files are stored on SDcard and all the messages (even the multimedia files too) can be backed up to the SD card or pushed to Google Drive or Dropbox etc. In anyway when you are upgrading an Android version it is strongly recommended to take a backup of the current phone data so that you just need to copy it into the new ROM after upgrading.

    Well, it is still debatable, but personally I do not recommend to use TB. It is still your call to use it and there might not be any problem at all. 🙂
