☆Root required☆
☆Supports for all Android devices!☆

It's aimed to support all Android devices running Android 3+.

This is an improved and more generic implementation of EFS Backup.

This application auto detect all your device partitions and let you save a backup of any of them (Boot, EFS, Modems...), to keep them safe from getting corrupted after bad Rom flashing issues.

You can backup any partition to your internal or external SdCard, the backup supports 3 formats:
  • Raw partition image (Img)
  • Tar archived image (No compression)
  • Compressed GZ image (Small size)
This application was made to be a generic solution for all Android devices, it does NOT use any static/hardcoded block numbers.

Notes:
  • The backups are saved on /Sdcard/PartitionsBackups.
  • Do NOT leave the EFS/Modems backups on your Sdcard, make sure you keep them on a safe place
  • It supports stock and custom Roms (CM, Omni...)
  • Do NOT use the restoration feature for tests purposes, it is recommended to use it for small partitions only (EFS, Boot, Modems...), you can restore other partitions backups with Fastboot, Odin or any other flashing tool depending on which device you are using.
Bugs reports:
  • Post your Exact device model
  • PM me your logcat (you can use Syslog App)
Download.

Changelogs:

12.3:
- Various bugs fixes

1.1.0:
- Add restoration feature, the backup file must be a raw partition image (with img extension)
- Minor bugs fixes

1.0.0:
Initial release

Suggestions are welcome, if you like the application please rate it.

Wow looks great! I've used EFS Backup before and excited to try this. Installing from play right now.
@wanam why is it under a new developer (Halfdroid) and not your existing developer on the Google Play Store?

Hi again Wanam,

Not installed yet but i'm curious about restoring the "big" partitions using odin:

Do you mean i can backup /data with your app and restore it using "pda" in odin without odin touching /system etc?

Yes, it should work with the tar archiving option.
