G-Box Midnight MX2
like to know how to reinstall apps after new firmware has been installed
Do you mean the apps that you installed before installing the firmware or the apps that come with the firmware itself?
In the event that you want to re-install your apps, you should first backup the apps with a program such as Titanium Backup, then you can recover the apps after the firmware installation
Use an advanced file manager or backup app like Titanium Backup, ES File Explorer, Root Explorer, ... to backup any downloaded apps on your box, then be sure to copy them to either a removable external storage device, another computer, drop box, ... DO NOT leave them under the internal /sdcard partition and expect them to still be there after your upgrade!!!
After your upgrade you can reinstall the apps from the APK files produced with either the App Installer, or the same tool you used to make the backup.
If you've got the option, backup apps
data (might save some setup when you restore)
bit confusing this as the box froze in the first place and i did not get a chance to backup anything
You'll have to install the apps from the Play Store if you wiped the firmware before being able to backup. In most circumstances I would recommend installing your apps fresh anyways. Make sure you're on the 1.1.4b firmware (Beta Dev Zone). There was major issues on the previous firmwares that have been since resolved by this beta. Thanks.
thanks will give this a go
so when the official firmware release comes out will it do a factory reset?
if so you might want to state this as it's not normal behavior for what's termed an upgrade in my opinion.
I didn't have the reinstall all my apps or custom settings on my Nexus 7 when going from 4.2.1 to 4.2.2.
I think you'd be wise just to presume it will, can't go wrong then
I guess, since we've been using Beta releases up until now, the step up to Official Stable Release might be worthy of taking the precaution of backing up the stuff we can't afford to lose.

Doesn't the new firmware (1.1.4b) come with a backup app already installed?
It think I just used it about an hour or so ago. :o
