Looking to load a new rom

Postby James420 » Mon Apr 15, 2013 6:51 am

My phone is currently rooted and i was about to use a custom rom. Before i do that i wanted to backup my licence key so i don't have to buy fpse again. I have only bought two apps this and titanium backup (which i have found the licence key for TB). I was wondering where my licence key is located to back it up just in case something goes wrong.

P.S. This is my first time installing a custom rom. If there is any easier way to go about this please say so.

I don't have a lot of experience with custom ROMS myselft (some, not much though). I thought google play was linked to your login though. Once you login, and associate your device with your goole login, you can install the apps you bought. Is that not true? I can tell you I've put FPSE on multiple android devices that I own without any issue.

Thanks for quick reply. This is my first android phone and wasn't aware that it was associated with my google account.

Edit: For some reason i thought it was bound to my phone. so once i wiped the internal data for the new rom i figured i would have to go through the hassle to buy all my apps over again.

don't worry, as Bluezeak said, every app you bought on Google Play is associated to your Google account and not to your phone.
Once you've flashed, just login to google again and you can download for free every app you paid for before.
Or you can restore Fpse using Titanium Backup, then all you have to do is to start Fpse while being connected so that Fpse can check its licence online (contrary to Titanium backup which has a standalone app for the licence key, Fpse checks the licence oline, so there's nothing to backup but just Fpse itself ;) )
