Please pardon my ignorance. I'm coming from my trusty [now nearly 5 year old] Nexus 6, running Android 8.
I feel a bit like I've fallen asleep under a tree, and have awakened to find everything has changed.

I was bummed to learn there's no TWRP available for our Pixel 4 XL, and probably won't be for some time [*1].
So.... what are you guys using to do full back/restore?

I ask because I recently found myself wanting a full NAND backup, after soft-bricking my Pixel 4 XL while trying to install a buggy Xposed Framework, which caused a bootloop [*2].

I haven't done a nand backup in years. My full backup is 1) letting Google handle most of it 2) TiBu and SMS backup and restore. I have TiBu run backups of all of my designated apps and sync them with GDrive twice a week. It really makes doing a full wipe not really a big deal at all.

I got bootloop with Xposed too and was tripping out since I haven't played with phones in years. Finally was able to reflash stock. Is there a stable version of Xposed to use for our phones?

Google's backup covers me well. Used to do Titanium Backup but the last time I did that was over 4 years now.

Great question... one that deserves to be in a dedicated thread, as I think many of us could benefit from knowing the answer.
Edit: @eg1122 just started a new thread here

Tibu wasn't working too well for me... that is until an update for V8.4.0 came out earlier today.
It was FC'ing whenever I'd try to open the app yesterday.
After today's update, it seems to be working for me.

Can you point me in the right direction(xda threads) to getting that setup for myself? It's been a few years since I did anything without twrp
