Full Backup of non-rooted devices

I'm going to flash (format) my Samsung Galaxy S2 (both the external sd and internal sd) . My phone is not rooted. But there are some app's data that i want to backup before formatting.Those are some of my games' progress,Mozilla Firefox's history,bookmarks etc,Opera Mini history etc. , and the songs i tagged in Shazam . How am i supposed to do that since i know that you can't backup app data such as game progrees if your phone is not rooted ? Also i can't access those apps,whenever i open them they constantly crash,this started 1 week ago,that's why im gonna flash my device (but this is another thread's subject).I would appreciate help with any of the apps above.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

After 2 years I stumbled upon this question that I asked and it made me smile :) Anyone who comes up to this question today, just use Helium Backup. It backups your app data (game progress etc.) without root. I wish I knew this 2 years before :) – Faiq Ömərov Jan 18 at 16:09

You can use the Android sdk. It includes something called adb. Here is a link to a previous question. Full Backup of non-rooted devices .Here is a list of all adb commands.
