[Guide Help] Manual Restore - Select App Data to Restore After Backup

Hi Guys,

Is it possible to manually restore application data selectively?

Let's say I have 5 applications [APP1, APP2, APP3, APP4, APP5] that I installed from play store. Here is what I want to happen

  1. Backup : Backed-up phone data [all phone settings, sms, call logs, app data except photos & videos and others on EXT_CARD].
  2. Wipe all data from my phone through installing new JB update / SUS [fresh installation of stock rom]
  3. Instead of installing 5 applications that I installed before, I only choose 1 [installed APP1 only].
  4. {THE TRICKY PART} Restore : I only want to restore one application data [only for APP1] from 5 of my old data.

Is this possbile?

Unfortunately no, it's not possible. At least not in our backup solution. There are loads of other backup apps on Google Play, and hopefully some of them are able to do this.
