And the other question is after I create a backup and then want to restore it the name of backup is the date and time and then it's written (0.1M) if this is the size of backup obviously it's not a successful backup do you have any idea what that 0.1M is? I'm completely confused I've never been so much in trouble with Android I think it's some kind of virus or something, any help from you guys is so much appreciated, the phone is Xperia U with ICS I need to have a backup of those text messages and I need to do a factory reset please give me a way
thanks in advance.
If you can flash new firmware.how?
1.download stock ics b.1.100 Xperia U(Google it)
2.download flashtool latest version.(Google it)
3.learn how to use flashtool(Google it)
4.when flash don't wipe data or anything.(Before flash charge battery till it full)if u do this everything in your phone will lose but internal storage is still there
And one answer if u do a factory data reset,it will ask you clear internal storage or not?do as you want.if u want to back up your message I don't know if it work or not Cus u use original back up app.Try it stock back up apps maybe work for system apps
