Hey guys. I was wondering if there was an app or a program that could take a backup of my phone like the one from cwm. See i have a permanently locked bootloader and i want to try out the 4.3 firmware, without losing all my customisations on my current firmware. If thereis an app or a program that makes such backups, link it to me. THANKS

Well, if you have root then you can use this app. Another option would be using "adb backup" command, this one works without root but some contents may not be backed up...

Thanks for the reply, but there is one problem, that app doesn't allow me to restore the backup that i have made. Is there any app for that, or is it just impossible. By the way, i have a rooted phone, i just cannot unlock the bootloader

Uh, I forgot that, Online Nandroid Backup only makes the backup, a recovery is still needed to restore, so, it's useless for you. You'll have to stick with adb backup then, it'll backup most of your apps and data, but modifications you made directly to system (buil.prop changes, files flashed with Flash Gordon, etc) will be lost...

Ah ok thanks bro. I'll just wait until a root method for licked bootloaders has been discovered on 4.3.

Thanks again
