Yes it should include the contacts. Your syntax appears incorrect though. It should be adb backup -all -f backup.ab rather than adb backup .all -f backup.ab Also the -f backup.ab is optional as that is the default.

Yes, it does. You can get it via: adb pull /data/data/com.android.providers.contacts/databases/contacts2.db

Don't worry, the solution is pretty easy. Download Wugrfesh toolkit from here: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95747613655047107 Once you open the program, press "Flash stock + unroot" on the right side. Just follow the instructions and you'll do fine. Good luck :)

No, there is no built-in way to sync apps between devices. Google Play backups are generally only accessed when restoring apps onto a new device (or one that was factory reset). If you have root on the devices, you can manually sync app data. You could copy the data folder for each app manually. Or you could use Titanium Backup or any other backup app to do ...

I can only suggest Titanium Backup - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup, since I haven't really tried any other apps. I used to use it when I first got Android after I rooted, I used that to do a backup before installing a new ROM. Was incredible. Don't know about the scheduling though, but that wouldn't surprise me ...

Then you can use titanium backup to backup everything on ...

A whole system image backup is not possible without root access. If you have root access, this can be achieved via nandroid. However, if you create a full image, reset the device, and restore the image – you've just spent a lot of time for nothing, as Nandroid makes full file system images. So this makes more sense when creating a backup while the device is ...

So from what I understand, you managed to back up and restore the ROM itself (system partition) but not the apps. Basically I'd recommend: Backing up the ROM with the backup option on recovery. I don't remember if it means your apps will be backed up as well but I think it does. You can use Titanium backup or Hellium to back up your apps. The backups will ...

What I ended up doing was adding a packed debian image into an android image, which then gets included into the system on the first boot up by a setup application.

There are multiple ways to achieve that, some are depending on the OS your computer runs. Simple VCard exchange Open your contacts app, open its menu. You should find an item to export your contacts to your device's SDCard (usually in a sub-menu called "Import/Export"). Hitting that will write a file named 0001.vcf or similar to the SDCard toot directory. ...

Maybe because you choosed "Only WiFi" when the app asked you if you want to upload photos via wifi, mobile or both... Try clearing G+'s data and restarting the settings step from zero... I had a similar problem with a S4 and this was the problem/solution ;)

You can access the site of Plus (plus.google.com) and see if your photos are ok. If everything is fine, you can even reset your phone and your photos will be safe. After check your photos on the site, you can try to uninstall and reinstall the app. Maybe it solve the problem.

Dropbox backup lacked the folders for each app somehow, and thus was not recognized when I tried to copy it to the new phone. I instead made a backup to SD card and transferred it to the new phone to restore. Seems to be working thus far.
