Hey everyone! So I recently installed KitKat (4.4.2) and I completely hate it. Many of my apps are no on working and I do not have permission to write on my SD card. The problem is I plan on rooting on my phone to get back the writing permissions on my sd card; however, many of the backup apps I'm using are no longer working as intended due to the sd card limits. And since rooting my phone is going to cause me to lose my data, what should I do? I have multiple apps that I still need the data from. Is there an app can still backup my content (apps, games(with data), sms, etc) and be able to restore it on KitKat? Please let me know!
I'm using Samsung Galaxy S4

you can try

it creates a xml backup of your contacts and sms - it can also do apps but I havent tried that

But I think it can only write to SD - be that external sd card or an internal sd card

You could try exporting contacts to sim card then you import them from the sim
Anything else I can think of would require root access
