If you are the proud owner of a rooted Android phone or tablet, then there’s a very good chance that you’ve heard of Titanium Backup. This backup/restore (and that’s putting it lightly) application is so good at what it does, that many people root their devices just to have Titanium support. Luckily for those that have rooted devices running Android L, the latest Titanium Backup update has brought support for Android 5.0.
The update brings Titanium Backup to version 6.2, and contains the following updates:
- Added initial support for Android 5.0 Lollipop.
- Fixed “force close” feature not working in some rare cases.
- Fixed possible FC when syncing back from Google Drive (server-side bug).
- Updated specific data exclusion for Google Play Newsstand (Magazines).
- Updated translations.
While only a handful of Android Lollipop devices can be rooted, it’s certainly good to see the Titanium Track team on the ball with keeping their application updated. The Android L powered Nexus 9 tablet recently was added to the “You have been rooted” list, and we expect to see other devices running Lollipop on that list very soon. When that happens, remember that Titanium Backup is already up and ready to go.
For those that have always wondered about Titanium Backup but have never used it, we have a great guide that walks you through using the app here.
The app/update can be downloaded via Google Play.
