Simple ADB Backup has been renamed to Holo Backup.
Here's the changelog:
- Most of the code has been rewritten. This doesn't really mean much to users, but the old code was absolutely hideous and I just had to do something about it.
- The interface has been completely redesigned, hence the new name. I'm quite proud of how it turned out.
- The app now has a proper icon on the Windows executable.
- Native support for wireless ADB is now included. That means backups can be done wirelessly (but only if you've rooted your phone), as long as you've enabled wireless ADB on your phone using a root application or a custom ROM feature. Of course, the device and your PC need to be on the same LAN for this to work.
- Single app backup has been removed. It very rarely worked, so I figured it was doing more harm than good.
- It uses gksudo to gain root priveleges on Linux now, so you no longer have to manually run it as root - it'll ask for your password with a popup when it needs it. Many people still rightfully don't want to give away root privileges so easily, which brings me to the next feature.
- The option to use an existing adb install has been included under Linux. The benefit of this is that adb, when properly set up, doesn't require root.
- You can now back up text messages and call logs! It does this by installing a copy of SMS Backup+ and launching it on your device. You can then use the app to back up and restore texts and calls to a custom label in your Gmail.
- You can now donate bitcoins using a button in the app itself. This will open a browser window letting you donate using either a CoinBase button, or sending bitcoins to my address directly. I did this more for fun than anything else, I don't expect to make a profit from it. :P
