PAIRS Your Wireless Backup

A simple wireless backup solution, for WiFi & Bluetooth settings

Use this app to backup & restore your Bluetooth pairings, WiFi connections and WiFi Hotspot Settings
It's ideal to restore these when clean flashing between ROM updates etc.
  • Backup - Backup your WiFi & Bluetooth connection settings to your internal storage or sdcard.
  • Restore - Restores your WiFi & Bluetooth connection settings from your internal storage or sdcard.
  • Delete - Deletes the saved WiFi & Bluetooth connection settings from your internal storage or sdcard for privacy.

Note
- Default backup directory is /sdcard/.pairs
- This app needs root permission
- If using v1.0 you need to uninstall before installing a newer version
- Don't restore Bluetooth when updating from Android version 5.x to 6 or higher
- This is designed for backup/restore on the same device
- First version was posted here > http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost...

Why does Pairs have a process and service active? I just noticed under Settings / Developer / Running Services that Pairs is listed there. Its been literally days since it was used...
Update: Even after stopping, the process and service later appeared. Clearing auto-boot and keep-awake AppOps had zero lasting effect.

Pairs is now uninstalled. When needed I might install to make a backup or restore, but it will immediately be uninstalled after.

This user cares about giving apps free and unrestricted access to my phone.

I fixed background process sometimes starting with v1.2, it shouldn't run at all in the background when exiting with the back button.

where is this info being stored on the phone? i'd like to back it up to my drive if possible in case i need to do a full storage wipe. a cloud backup option would also be amazing.

It is not installing at all. Either version 1 or 2. It gives an error message, "can't open file".
Can you be more specific? Maybe bad download..
Works with Android 5.0+

I am on Android 7.1 Nitrogen rom. Someone in that forum recommended this but it won't install for me. It just says can't open file when I try to install.
Try installing apk by launching it with a third party file explorer instead of the notification or the stock download manager.
