Edit: if you are rooted and you plan on unlocking from Moto's website, then the apk or terminal version should make a backup without custom recovery being present. Just DO NOT choose recovery as a partition to save!
Script Creator's thread (Manual/Terminal method).
App creator's, easy method.
I just installed the app from Play, & followed the flow within the app.
Most X variants (not xt1053 & others?), Droids, G, most Moto's & all msm8960 phones are supported.
List of devices
You will not miss so many calls while remaining in peace & calm!
No WiFi or mobile data is used. The name is a definite marketing gaff. Other Foo-Paws:
1)The notice: Replacing old backup with new: It does not overwrite any previous BU as long as the append date option is used with build number.
2)View in Nandroid Manager, Does not work! Needs yaffstool.
It is as fast or faster than Philz! Faster OTG backups than Philz, as fast as SD!
Plus one is not pressured because their phone/text is down, the interface for custom choices is better. Leave out recovery (a must for Philz & TWRP) by using the selective (boot,system,data) backup option. Note the incremental option actually takes longer than the selective. The whole experience is great! Everyone must try it!
Damn Good apk, poor marketing/notices.
Use this to save to your regular backup folder. Then restore, when you must, from your Moto X recovery of choice: Philz/Touch/cwmr, TWRP2711 or CWMR Touch.
More on Philz:
Unzip the attachment, philz-touch_6.ini.bak goes in /storage/sdcard0/clockworkmod. Along side the aromafm folder in which goes aromafm.zip. Note you must rename the aroma you download. Aroma191 is here.
Once in recovery, go Phil's settings, Backup & Restore settings, Load default settings. With this ini Philz is as pocket proof as TWRP. You need to double tap for any action. You also get no "cancel of operation in progress" but neither do you with TWRP!
Flashify is an easy, phone-up, .img flasher too. This recovery.img flasher is free: recoverytools
