Hi,

Can anyone suggest a simple way to backup and restore while resetting the device?

I had to wipe the date on the phone and reset it, but lost several stuff including Nova settings, installed apps via apks from unknown sources, etc.

Any good app which simplifies the backup and restore option? Tried Mybackup pro and Helium before, but not good.

I do not want to root the phone to use Titanium backup though.

Have you tried backing up the device with the back up feature available in the settings?

I did, although the backup was a month ago. When I reset, i could not backup as I lost my AVG password so had to reset using the buttons. Restored it using the backup feature but like I said above most of the features were gone! For example, my nova settings, etc

Titanium Backup is the BEST app

I know that. I have mentioned on top I dont want to use it, as I have to root the phone.

If you have suggestion for unrooted devices, let me know.

I have tried many apps but they are not stable enough, try this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...g.go.backup.ex

The problem for most apps is they need root access to put back settings and so forth... Unfortunately there is a limit to what most apps can do to an unrooted phone...
