Titanium Backup: Describe error: There is a problem parsing the package

by Pete L.   Last Updated August 14, 2019 13:11 PM

I recently backed up all of my stuff to my Galaxy S5's SD card using Titanium Backup. I decided to test the backup using factory reset (I'm using the stock ROM) and trying to restore the backup afterwards. However, every time I try to do this, I get an error message saying "There is a problem parsing the package."

I've tried changing the backup location as explained here: https://seo-michael.co.uk/titanium-backup-problem-parsing-package-fix/

I've also tried updating SuperSU and changing the name space option as explained here: I can't restore apps with titanium back up

So far, nothing has worked. And I have to force stop TB to try and restore again (it stays stuck at 0% in the notification bar otherwise).

Have I done something wrong? Am I screwed?

There is one issue not mentioned online. When you disable Google Play Store - you need to untick some setting under security. You need to tick Unknown sources and UN-TICK Verify apps - while Play Store is still installed and actively running.

At least this solved parsing issue for me without the need to do backups again. Somehow google has managed to block Titanium backup ...
