YES german is in there!
For creating a full backup (not only system but also all partitions) I guess the only way is to use Qualcomm software QPST,
here's a manual:

The only thing you really need anyway will be your original "modem.bin" to restore after installing the unbranded Lenovo Rom.
BTW I could not make a backup of mine, since the tablet was stuck in bootloop and QPST could not detect it. So now I'm without 3g because it can't detect the sim card.
If you would be so kind to send me your modem.bin I'll update my guide and give you credits for the help

In case you need, here are the commands for a modem backup

In terminal emulator, do the following:
Code:
su  

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1 of=/mnt/sdcard/backups/modem.bin bs=4096
It will create the "modem.bin" file on your external sdcard, in the path specified !

You need to backup your modem first, because if you don't you may break your 3g connection and have "SIM card not found".
But please don't flash anything before I have a "modem.bin", then I'll test it !

The procedure to restore the modem you backed up is a little more complex, and I'll prepare a script for that...when I'll be sure it's working 100%!

I must do it, only because I was stuck in a bootloop and lost 3g.

Take care

Edit:
the other option is to backup your full NV partition as explained in the QPST thread, then restore it after flashing the new rom...that's the safest way actually !!!
