Great, just in time ?Late ,but new update is up!
I really have no idea why that happens, it does the same in my case. Maybe you can create an issue on github for it?Great, just in time ?
What I don't understand is why an app that only exists in the main profile also gets installed in the work profile when restored. That only happens if the app has been uninstalled before the restore.
Only the app seems to be installed then and luckily not the data, but still it should not happen.
Does the app uninstall fully uninstall with no residue like titanium?
Whats the error?I am unable to restore a downgrade. My use case is to restore a backup of an older version after upgrading via the play store. I was surprised that even after un-installing the app, I still wasn't able to restore. there was a popup error about trying to downgrade.
Is that a known issue or am I doing something wrong?
so the same happens if u uninstall the app completely and restore it?
imo none of the app shud be able to make a downgrade compatible if its incompatible by the other app itself. but still u can create an issue in github. maybe for such situations OABX can uninstall first automatically then restore, making it easier for the user.Nevermind. I just tried to reproduce that case and the restore was successful. I don't know what happened last time. I must not have really uninstalled. sorry for the alarm.
Still, it would be nice to be able to restore a downgrade without needing to uninstall first.

update : talked to the developer about it, he says user needs to uninstall first then restore in such cases sadly.
if you ignore the data part , restoring a newer or older version of app is just like manually installing it over the installed version. Oandbackupx does the same. in situations where installing a version of the app over another version of the same app isnt compatible , for example because of different signature, we need to do a fresh install of such app. The process of uninstalling then restoring after getting the error automatically is although possible , is probably not worth the time coding it as these are very rare. Most of the apps remain compatible generally for downgrades and upgrades.That's disappointing. Titanium used to be able to do it, but also fails now. That's what motivated me to look for an alternative. The difference is that TB fails without displaying an error, so you don't know there was a problem. At least OABX shows an error. that's better.
Did he have any explanation as to why it's not possible? Since I'd be replacing App and Data, how is it different than uninstalling first?
This usually points out that you've removed Files (system's file manager). This app is the only one able to manage SAF and looking at the direction the Android developers are going, it won't be going away soon but will be more established in the next months and years, as apps are forced to use SAF starting with A11. In the latest test builds this is communicated better now. I think the same applies to your error @ValianteSame here, when I tap on "Backup folder" the app crashed. I'm using the latest version on Android 11. I allowed Storage permission from setting, and gave root access, but still crashes.
There's always this question, what type of "data" are we talking about here? In the settings(service preferences) you can choose the data that should be backed up. Otherwise, apps saving their data in the external storage against Android standards e.g. Whatsapp can't be backed up "fully", as there's no API to get the addresses of this on-external-storage data.Honestly I've really wanted to switch to Titatium backup to OandbackupX, but always have issues. I was able to restore apps this time, but got the input file error. It restored apps ok, but missing data.
Ended up switching back to Titatium backup again as it just seems to be more reliable, but do hope OandbackupX keeps improving.
Probably something went wrong while downloading, just fetch it again.I tried to install the apk on my Rooted S7 Edge and I received a "There is a problem parsing the package" error message. How can I correct that error? Also can this application freeze applications like Titanium Pro?
The App supports only A8+.Just tried to install and get message "there was a problem parsing the package" downloaded from 2 different places (Github and Izzy)...
That's one of the lowest priorities for now.making flashable zip added ?
Happy to hear, you're welcome.Runs smooth and fast on A7 2018 with custom Rom...
First and main difference: this project is open source. Second one: it's still under heavy development, performance isn't there yet.How does this compare to swift backup? I switched from titanium to swift on a10 because of restore issues on a10 and now on a11 swift is working decently.

In the current stable version(4.0.0), you should have the same backup directory on both devices e.g. 0/OABackupX/some questions cani say take a bckup on my redmi note 4 and install it on MI a3 is it possible both phones are rooted and runing android 10 custom roms
The documentation work is still secondary for now (performance & stability is the first priority) , but 5.0.0(alphas) provide already a lil bit more, and more is coming.Thank you! Maybe next time you contact him you can propose to make a legend for al the icons in the app. They are not always that clear. ?
