Default [Tutorial] Back-Up & Restore from a Android Device - Unrooted & Rooted Methods

How to backup & restore all your
data, contacts etc..... on your
Android device running a Non-
Rooted STOCK ROM
*******************************
************
MyBackup
MyBackup works as a perfect
backup & restore utility for Non-
Rooted (as well as ROOTED)
devices running the Android
OS......
The app can be downloaded from
Play Store here : https://
play.google.com/store/apps/
details?id=com.rerware.android.
MyBackup&feature=search_result
(FREE VERSION)
Once installed open the
application and tap the Backup
button, an option will pop up
asking wether you want to backup
your apps or data.....
When you backup your apps via
MyBackup, you will be presented
with an option of either selecting
certain apps you want backed up
or all your apps......
With backing up your DATA you
backup either straght to your
SDCard or to a Online server, for
later restoring..... same with the
app menu you can choose what to
backup or backup the your entire
data on the ROM, when backup is
complete it will create a ZIP file
on you SDCard.......
You can also have a backup
scheduled for a certain time ,
which is a great feature to have
especially if you forget to backup
sometimes.........
To Restore you can simply tap on
the RESTORE button and restore
what you want........
*******************************
************
Manual Drag and Drop
Drag & dropping files from your
Android device whilst connected
to the PC is a easy & fuss free way
of backing up data, contacts,
images and other SD Card data.....
Take a few minutes of your time
to save yourself the heartache if
something unfortunate happens to
your Android device.
******************************
How to backup & restore all your
data, contacts etc..... on your
Android device running a Custom
ROM with Custom Recovery MENU
or Backup Software
Nandroid backup
For ROOTED Users, you will
obviously have a Custom Recovery
installed with your ROM..... As
with most Nandroid recovery
systems you can backup & restore
all data right from this menu.......
There are many custom recoveries
available the most common one
being the ClockworkMod Recovery, Just boot into
the recovery console, tap on the
backup/restore tag, usually
through the menu Backup and
restore > Backup or restore...

To Restore follow the same
method as backup option, boot
into Recovery Mode and select
Backup and restore > Restore.
*******************************
************
Titanium Backup
Another option for rooted Android
users is Titanium Backup.
Titanium Backup gives you direct
access to your system. If you have
not used this program before
make sure to read all release notes
and methods of using the program
as mistakes can be made....
Once you’ve launched the app,
click on the Backup/Restore tab
and click the Menu button on your
phone. From the menu that
appears, select Batch. At the next
menu, click [RUN] Backup all user
apps + system data. You can
choose to backup just your user
apps and system data but you can
choose a complete and total
backup of your phone.
Depending on how much of your
phone you’ve chosen to back up,
the initial backing up process can
take anywhere from a few minutes
to half an hour or even more. Just
like a Nandroid backup, you can
opt to copy the backup file to your
computer. Navigate to the /
Titanium Backup directory on your
device’s SD card and you can find
your backup there, ready for
safekeeping.
When you’d like to restore your
backup, you can enjoy the same
Batch function. Select Menu >
Batch. On the Backup/Restore
menu, scroll down to find restore
options.

Is there a different method/app?
I have to use an application thats checks if phone is rooted - it won't allow me to connect if its rooted
AND
I have some apps/games that don't sync with the cloud so all data will be lost if just reinstalled without crrent data?
please advice/refer/HELP?SAVE?RESCUE me

Thanks!
