APN Backup & Restore

APN Backup & Restore


A simple App to backup and restore APNs (Settings to connect to the internet with the mobile connection). The backup is stored in the /sdcard/APNBackupRestore folder.

NOTE:
Android 4.4 / KitKat+:
- Use an app like Root Explorer to move the APK to: "/system/priv-app/"
- Set the permissions to: "rw-r-r"
- Disable ICS check in the app.

Android 4.0/ICS,
- Open Titanium Backup
- Go to backup/restore tab
- Find APN Backup & Restore on the list
- Long press on the app when you find it
- Select Convert to system app
- Open APN Backup & Restore
- Click menu and disable ICS check
Thanks to Joaquín for the instructions.

Recent changes:
v1.91:
- Removed the Ads and the Permissions needed for them :)
As such the app always had Ads, just the previous network didn't work properly to show them.

v1.9:
- Using a new Ad Service (Mobclix).
- Added an option to disable the check for ICS devices. This allows the app to be used as a System app on rooted devices.
- Read Phone State/Identity permission required by Mobclix to access a unique identifier that some ad networks require to track impressions..

Easy APN Backup and Restore (if rooted!) This app worked perfectly on my rooted Nexus 4 with Lollipop 5.1.1. Of course, it didn't work when I first opened the app. Closed the app, then, as instructed by the dev, copied the app .apk file from the root directory /data/apps to /system/priv-app, then restarted the phone (required step). Opened the app and could easily backup and restore my APNs. Much easier than using screenshots to refer to while slowly typing in the APN fields. NOTE: Don't have root? Then don't complain about the app! Thanks dev!
