Hello, so I turned my One into a google edition by flashing the ruu and wanted to know if I could backup before going back to sense. I don't want to restore my stuff to sense, I want it so I can restore my Google edition stuff if I don't want to stay on sense. Im currently running the stock (non-rooted) version so I can't use titanium backup. However, since Im S-Off, couldn't I flash twrp, backup, then flash sense, then if I wanted to go back to Google Edition I could just flash the ruu, install twrp, restore the backup, then flash stock recovery? Would this work, and if yes could I take updates?

You are correct, flash a custom recovery. Make a backup and copy it to your PC.

When going from Sense to GPe you don't need to flash the GPe RUU unless you used an RUU to flash Sense and you want the GPe firmware again. Just restore the backup in CWM or TWRP.
