As for the first part: Yes, that definitely means your device is rooted. For the second part of your question, IMHO it's close to impossible to figure the exact timestamp of rooting (apart from yourself noting it in some document). Though there seem to be tools reporting it, as mentioned in this answer1, I'm afraid that timestamp is not much reliable ...

I have not tried this myself, but there's an app named ADB Wireless (no root) which, as the name suggests, claims to make this possible without involving root: This app is for developers wanting adb access over WiFi without rooting your phone. … *** NO ROOT REQUIRED *** Usage instructions can be found on the app's playstore page – looks pretty easy ...

This is not a final answer, as it is not generic (only works on some devices) – but it's a start at least: As we've figured out, at least CM based ROMs with Kitkat (Android 4.4) and above ship with the aapt binary available in /system/bin1. If your ROM doesn't have it, and installing the binary on the device is an option, you can find it here. Using aapt, ...

From what I have seen so far (and I use adb pull very often), there is no verification process going on. If a file, that has been pulled, is corrupted, you will get no notification about it whatsoever.

You may check-out my updated answer dealing with the question in entirety, or consider the following info: High accuracy: gps,wifi,network or gps,network (if you don't want Wi-Fi enabled) Battery saving: wifi,network or network only Device only: gps E.g: adb shell settings put secure location_providers_allowed gps,wifi,network To disable Location mode ...

It's unlikely that you need to copy the entirety of your tablet's storage in order to find a file from one application. Assuming the app you're using is this one, you should only need to check in /data/data/bn.ereader/. IIRC, you can pull that to your PC with adb pull /data/data/bn.ereader/ . (the dot may or may not be necessary).

The correct reference would point to our nandroid tag-wiki, as a Nandroid backup is what covers all content. However, this is only available via custom recoveries. An alternative to that would be the dd command ("Disk Duplicator"1). Disclosure: the following describes an application I wrote and maintain: My tool Adebar is able to generate you dd scripts ...

I especially wonder why adb backup doesn't cover this. It is not that adb backup doesn't want to cover the app com.android.providers.telephony. This app is not much different from any other system app based on its AndroidManifest.xml. The problem is with the flag its developer has declared in the manifest which as a default mechanism for some reason adb ...

Directly accessing /data/data/* is not possible without root – neither on device, nor remotely from your PC. But your question rather is a XY problem: what you really want to do is "to back up a few save game files to a pc folder so I don't lose them, just in case the tablet needs reset for any reason". And for that, you've even put a tag that already ...

There are some couple of ifs and buts. I have not tried this, but this is just an idea that comes to my mind which is an extension of my previous answer. Through this post, I learn that intents can be invoked through adb command prompt. So, if the device is rooted and has Xposed framework, the above can be done.

Try disabling verification, via safestrap, and try both methods + Sideload again. I should ask, why heimdall and safestrap? Use Clockworkmod recovery instead of safestrap and ODIN over heimdall. Yes, they require you to get your stuff online beforehand, but clockworkmod has got me out of a lot of soft-bricks If I was boring, everyone I know would not ...
