[APP][4.04+] OBackup - BUG FIXED, BACK ON PLAY STORE [07/21/2013]
Backup your device to Cloud in one click
BECAUSE OF AN ERROR WITH OUR SERVER I HAVE UNPUBLISHED THE APPLICATION FROM PLAY STORE
THE ERROR IS NOW FIXED
Application should came back on Play Store in the coming hours
Make a backup, zip it and upload it on your Dropbox or Google Drive in ONE CLICK only !!! (upload is just a feature, you can make the backup and just keep it on your device)
Make it happen every night at 2AM or every two days at noon... or whatever you want
No need to restart your phone during the backup and miss some calls!
You can continue to use your device during the backup (may be laggy on slow device ).
CWM & TWRP support
Very clear explanation from Kantjer (original post here)

On Samsung jb when using the app I never had to use a script so will need to look at that if its different for Aokp roms?
Which one is better Online or OBackup?
Answer from Kantjer:
There basically 3 major developers involved in the world of online backup (online meaning no need to boot in recovery)
ameer1234567890, who developed the "Online Nandroid Backup" script, this is the script making the actual online nandroid.
The script can be run without any additional apps using a terminal emulator.
snoopy33, he is the developer of "OBackup"
OBackup is a frontend app that uses the Online Nandroid Backup script for the backup part. But offers a lot of additional features like like easy setup, scheduled backups and backup retention to name a few.
H3R3T1C, is developing "Nandroid Manager"
a dedicated app to manage all your backups and let you verify MD5 of backups, restore apps+data from nandroid backup and a whole lot of other nice things.
So basically "Online Nandroid Backup"and "OBackup" should give you the same backup result, only if you want the nice extra options go for OB. Nandroid Manager is a great addition to compliment your set off backup tools.
The good news for us as users is that the 3 developers are working closely together to ensure that everything is working nicely together and apps and script are compatible.
A few tips for new users. I have seen a lot of people posting issues using "Online Nandroid" or "OBackup" and most off the time is due to only one off the following things.
The user didn't install the correct device specific path, this is needed to tell the script where to find the boot and recovery partitions. You can find the patches here
Don't start messing with selecting partitions to backup, leave that option disabled and OB will backup all the relevant partitions for you. Only use it if you need it and know what you are doing.
Only use the SD-EXT option if you use apps like app2sd, link2sd, data2sd, etc... otherwise leave that option disabled.
Good luck, and if you need any assistance place a port in the appropriate thread.

Just installed but my device did not get correctly recognised at app start up. Im running a Galaxy S2 (GT-I9100), but options available are for Galaxy 2 and Epic 4g. Do I need a patch as with the onandroid app or should we choose one of the other models listed?
Thanks for creating this, could be very useful

I am sorry I am not sure to understand: you have a S2 and one of the option detected by the application was S2, if it is your case you need to choose the S2 in the list. Did I got the point?
Please give more detail if I am wrong.
FYI, the detection is just needed for the patch download.
To launch the download of the patch, you need to remove first the onandroid script by clicking on the menu, in the top bar, and after on remove tools.
Regarding the patch, getting one is better than not having it. But it is not necessary for main partition (system, data...) on most devices. When you have you know that every partition will be backuped correctly, without, it depends...
Do you think I need to add some help messages? Like about choosing the good device and about the patch.
Hope the answer is useful to you.
I would be happy to complete the information if it is needed.
