Just plug it in and transfer files bro. When you plug it in choose to mount as disk drive when your phone prompts you too. You can then transfer all your pics and notes etc like that. Then to be double sure, use super backup for your contacts, then transfer that file to your computer. But also be aware, rooting will not erase sdcard, UNLOCKING the bootloader will usually reset you. Hope this helps.. root it and boot it

Backup your contacts to Gmail. Copy and paste pics and videos to your computer as mentioned above. If you want, you can backup SMS using apps like SMS Backup+. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to backup app data without root, which of course doesn't help in your case.

I use "My Backup Pro" to backup my apps etc...(no root necessary). It will backup the apps but without the app settings info. So, if you restore the apps, you have to input your info again. It will backup everything.. sms, contacts etc... I use this app when I need to do a fresh restore. Make sure to copy the backup folder into your pc or Dropbox before restoring "fresh" your phone.

Hope this helps.

So it doesn't save app data, like game saves (unless rooted), right?

It looks like it does save MMS, which might be useful for me. SMS Backup+ doesn't do that (will backup your MMS pics to Gmail, but not restore them back to your phone).

No, won't backup saved data. If rooted, I would have used titanium backup. Would save apps+data.

I just saw this topic and hope share my experience, worried about the fact that HTC One doesn't Sync both ways like other ccounts (Blackberry iPhone etc). Contacts outdated on PC's Outlook now and most new contacts are put on the phone, bit concerned about no back up should the phone fail - can Dropbox be used for this or any other suggestions re how to protect all info in the People section?

PS: I just used Coolmuster Android Assisant, it can copy everything from phone to pc and it also can send messagse from pc to phone.

The default on Android is to backup all contact info to Gmail. You can verify by simply logging into Gmail on a PC and see if all your contacts are there. If not go into Contacts settings on the phone and merge contacts.

BTW, you realize this is the forum section for the HTC One X/XL, not the HTC One? They are completely different phones. Your post history is all over the place, so I can't even tell what device you own.

Also, you are responding to a thread over a year old.
