[Q] Best practice to backup TA on 4.3?
I'm running 4.3 and would like to unlock my bootloader. Since I never did it before I still need to backup my TA first. Since this needs root I'm stuck in a loop: Backup TA needs root to work but root on 4.3 needs an unlocked bootloader to install cwm to install SuperSU
Now i see two scenarios to make it happen:
a) Flash 4.2.2 with flashtool -> root with flashtool -> backup TA -> upgrade to 4.3 -> unlock bootloader on 4.3 -> install root.
b) Wait for a way to root 4.3 phones without an unlocked bootloader.
1. Would a) work and is it worth the effort?
2. Will b) be possible and if so, how long will it probably take until it's possible?
Thank you in advance for your replies, you guys are doing a great job here!
