None of the workarounds worked for me here, and I don't want to downgrade my SDK tools. Here's what I came up with: skip adb backup on the computer and go straight to device via adb shell. $adb version Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.35 Revision fc2a139a55f5-android $ adb shell shell@jflte:/ $ bu 1 backup -apk app.package.name > /sdcard/backup.ab ...

ADB backups usually do not contain system apps, unless explicitly specified by you while performing the backup process. If this is the case, you can certainly restore safely without any problem. But some apps may be incompatible with 6.0 as such. So they may not work after the restore.

You could simply delete whatsapp, then delete your google account off your phone. So that when you install whatsapp it wont download the media but the chats only. Then link your account again and it wont download the media.

Since, you do not want to root your phone. ADB backup are closest to the Full Backups. I recommend using Helium Backup for taking backups to your Phone's SD card or PC. More information can be found here.

If you have a good enough backup program, why not just backup the entire file system on the device? Under Ubuntu 15.10, my Android-based phone gets mounted at /run/user/1000/gvfs/.
