US­ING TI­TA­NIUM BACKUP

HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

The most ad­vanced way to con­trol your apps and data is to use Ti­ta­nium Backup, though it'll cost you RM22.46 to en­able all its pow­ers. This is the app that many hard­core users turn to when they want to backup/re­store their apps, or re­move, dis­able, or “freeze” them. This is a very pow­er­ful app that can be dan­ger­ous if not used cor­rectly.

Also, to use Ti­ta­nium Backup, you need a rooted de­vice. In a nut­shell, this means giv­ing your­self and the app you've cho­sen un­re­stricted ac­cess to the sys­tem files. For the most part, we don't rec­om­mend root­ing your Note5 or S6 edge+. It will trip Knox (a built-in Sam­sung se­cu­rity fea­ture) and dis­qual­ify your de­vice from us­ing se­cu­rity-fo­cused fea­tures, like Sam­sung Pay. It also voids your war­ranty.

If you like to live dan­ger­ously, check out these two fo­rum threads on XDA De­vel­op­ers (go­hwz.ws/1NoPm0f and go­hwz.ws/1NoPpJs) to find out more about root­ing your new Gal­axy de­vices.
