Default [Q] Rooted, not bootloader unlocked. Backups?

Hey all. I just rooted my phone last night, and I'm wondering about doing backups. I haven't done backups before, and doing research everything seems to require an unlocked bootloader. I just rooted using SMM, and I have a phone through AT&T. What do I have to do to make full backups?

As always, thanks!

the only backups you can make is if you install safestrap. when you rooted your device it replaced your recovery. for unlocked BL they can flash twrp to make backups with. for locked bootloader you must install safestrap found over on the rootz wiki. that is the only "full backup" that you can create. you can now use titanium backup if you don't want to install SS. it won't create a full backup but it is the closest to a full backup that you can create without installing SS

Thanks for letting me know. I was looking at titanium, and I'll check that out for full backup. If you use titanium, do you recommend the pay for version?

YES...able to do more.. Freeze apps (make them disappear from app tray and system but able to reactivate them if needed) and make app backups.
