Online Nandroid Backup. The Online really means Phone up. Saves to your SD, not to a cloud or dropbox! "Online" is a misnomer as it just means phone-up or rather not from the dark dungeon of recovery.
Sans restore. Requires boot unlock, not just root. As you need a custom recovery to do the the restore.
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. Fix . Not helping for the X.

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

Tasker Alternative.

Sounds good. But my backups are well over a gig..... I don't trust uploads and downloads that big.... Not when my phone is at stake. Lol

I prefer to move them to my PC via USB cord now and then.

Definitely a cool option tho for some people.

Online is misleading, "from homescreen to SD" is much better! Lol. Or phone-up! There is no WiFi or Data used.

Plus while one is not pressured because their phone/text is down, the interface for custom choices is better. Renaming, partitions to leave out like recovery by using the custom backup options. The whole experience is great! You must try it!

Guys, just so you are aware, Nandroid manager does have occasional issues with CM's SuperUser app.
