My guess is that, even if you could backup the ROM, you wouldn't be able to restore from it. So, a complete ROM backup has little value without root access at least.

Stock everything . . . for now.

Has anybody noticed this? If you open the little USB cap and hold it really close to your ear, you can hear a tiny voice scream, "Unlock me!"

SafeStrap is your only option unless you can be satisfied with Xposed modules.
