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.

Android 4.4 / KitKat: The app has to be moved to the /system/priv-app folder for it to be able to acquire the correct permissions.

NOTE: Starting with Android 4.0/ICS, 3rd Party apps don't have access to write APN settings, hence this app no longer works for restoring APN backups as a normal app. You can convert it to a System app using Titanium Backup on a rooted phone and use.

Instructions:
- 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..

Still the Best!!! For 4.4.x+ you MUST have root... you need to copy the apk to: "/system/priv-app/" and set the permissions to: "rw-r-r" then disable ICS check in the app. Works perfectly.

Not able to add new APN This tool really helpful to removed the APN's. I also noticed that when we took backup of APN's, it took backup of all, but when we restore the list of APN's from tje same backup, it do not bring all APN's list back to mobile. Is there a way to add new APN ?? My phone allow to add new APN but I can not use that APN, as there is no Radio Button to choose the new added APN. Even if I use Reset to Default option, the same system APN appeared again. It will be helpful if someone can tell how to add new APN or edit the existing one, which I can use . My Cell is LG P925.
