Hi Guys,

I am currently on Android 11 with 11.0.8.14 (KB2003) with root and happy so far. I have not yet received an option for update to A12 but his is because I am on 11.0.8.14 not on 11.0.13.13 I assume.
I am planning to update to Android 12 and wonder
  • what are the easiest/suggested process steps to upgrade from A11 to A12 with having root again? (Example: Backup, Update, Root, Restore data)
  • which options/guides are availble in general for this procedure?
  • how can I backup all data (photos, installed Apps, Appdata, ...) the easiest way (preferable via Windows) to (ideally there is some One-Click-Solution like SmartSwitch)?
  • how can I restore the saved data from the backup for a restore to A12?
  • is the camera at least as good as under A11 or even better?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hello!

1. For rooting options check this excellent thread.
2. If you have root, you can use numerous options to backup your phone like OnePlus own app or Swift backup.
3. In general if you're updating from OOS11 to OOS12 stable, there is no data loss, so nothing needed to restore.
4. I don't think that camera performance got better.
