Hello, time to time, many users are facing problem with greyed Backup now button in Google Backup. So here's the solution.

How it looks


ADB solution

What you need
  1. Device specific drivers
  2. ADB
  3. USB Debugging turned on

Procedure
  1. Connect the phone to the PC
  2. Open Command prompt - CMD
  3. Type in console
    Code:
    adb shell
    bmgr run
    bmgr backupnow --all
  4. If error "Backup finished with result: Backup Cancelled" pops up, type in console
    Code:
    bmgr backupnow appdata
    and then
    Code:
    bmgr backupnow --all
  5. When it's finished reboot your phone, Backup now button should be blue and functional

Terminal Emulator solution

What you need
  1. Root
  2. Terminal Emulator

Procedure
  1. Open Terminal Emulator
  2. Type
    Code:
    su
    bmgr backupnow --all
  3. Reboot phone
Backup doesn't work after deleting data/data/com.google.android.gms

There's a new problem after deleting mentioned folder to get GPay working. Unfortunately this breaks Backup. I captured the issue, backup transport path is disabled, you need to reenable it.

Procedure is same but this time, type in console
Code:
bmgr transport com.google.android.gms/.backup.BackupTransportService
Now repeat previous steps.

If I helped, consider buying me a coffee or just hit Thanks button. I appreciate any kind of feedback.

ADB method worked for me, however, SMS still shows "Waiting for backup". Not critical for me because I delete old, useless messages. But thought it might be worthy of being mentioned.

Was having backup issues with AEX ROM on my ZUK Z2 Pro before I found and tried this; now, everything's fixed. Cheers for this!
