I am back with a new tool for Windows Phone 7 (<3).
The WP7 Easy Backup Tool allows WP7 users to create or restore a backup on the easy way and without hacking skills. The tools wraps the Windows Phone Support Tools to create or restore updates, that means backups are 100% Zune compatible.
This software is still in development, but there is already an stable version.
I've tested with my HD7 and HD2 (depends on the ROM), more test devices would be nice.
This tool requires .NET 3.5, Zune 4.8.2345.0 and Windows Phone Support Tools
Successful tested on:
- HTC HD7 (original HTC ROM)
- HTC HD2 (Back to the Future ROM, xmb Rom 7740.16)
- HTC 7 Mozart
- HTC Arrive
- HTC Titan
- Samsung i917
- Dell Venue Pro
- Samsung Omnia 7 (I8700)
- Nokia Lumia 800
- Samsung Focus S
WARNING: The Tool didn't cares about previous backups! Please save your backups as first step.
Your backup should be stored here: "%localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows Phone Update\"
WARNING #2: THE BACKUP PROCESS COULD LEAD TO A FAILURE ON CUSTOM ROMS! ZUNE AND ZUNE UPDATES NEED TO BE SUPPORTED BY YOUR CUSTOM ROM.
HINT: The backup process could take up to 1h depending on your device.
IF YOU STUCK DURING THE BACKUP PROCESS IT'S NOT NECESSARY TO HARDRESET. REMOVE YOUR BATTERY AND BOOT NORMAL. (Sorry rubbish ;()
Use this software at your own risk
Please give me feedback on bugs or feature requests.
You found a bug? Okay, I need a description, device informations and your Zune version to kill that thing
