Anyone know if it's possible to do a backup with safestrap and flash a different KitKat rom? I'm currently on a KitKat rom, but what if I wanted to flash a different KitKat rom and not want to lose my stuff? When I mean lose my stuff, I'm talking about losing my rom setup...not text, logs etc. Basically I'm asking how to backup with safestrap like we did on jellybean since safestrap hasn't been updated to work with KitKat.

If it's possible, could someone share the how to steps?

Thanks in advance.

You can back up texts, call logs, etc. With super backup from playstore. Then make sure pictures are on external sd card. Backup apps with titanium backup.

Then follow guides on installing other rom. Once your up and running reinstall titanium backup, restore apps that you want. Restore logs and texts etc with super backup.

Safe strap backs up the whole rom. So that will do you no good for installing texts and such back.

You can't do a NANDROID backup at this time. You can use Titanium Backup to backup everything on your phone (app+data, text, call log, etc) If you restore it to a different ROM make sure not to restore system apps because that can cause some conflicts.

Yes and no... You can't do a full nandroid. But you can use SS to backup all the essentials to get your ROM Back up if you restore it.
