rsync I literally just finished cloning my device. This is how i did it: root@android:~# rsync --progress -aEzv / tjt263@10.1.1.2:~/Desktop/Android-Backup/ FYI: 10.1.1.2 is just the IP address assigned to my laptop. No USB-cable is required. However, you will more than likely need to have rsync and also an ssh server installed (and running) on both ...

I looked at the onandroid script and it seems that it does a block-level copy of the data with dd only for partitions that are not mounted during the normal system operation (such as recovery partition) and copies the files on the filesystem level from the mounted ones - meaning it copies the decrypted content of the data partition and others and creates a ...

It's because the files within the com.koushikdutta.backup/files are deleted whenever 1) you uninstall helium backup or 2) phone is factory reset. If those files are missing, helium backup will fail to recognize any of your backups, even if they exist and is easily restorable. Requiring those files to exist in order to restore backups is honestly quite a ...

You can usually copy the data for user apps without issue, but there is no guarantee. I wouldn't copy the /data/data/ folder wholesale, since it will include system app data and provides no way to easily manage it. I recommend Titanium Backup instead. With root, it allows you to easily backup any subset of apps (such as user apps) that you wish, and then ...

The problem is not with the phone, but with the charger! I've experienced this as well with cheap crapware (possibly Chinese-made). The reason they cause this behavior is the cheap design that doesn't provide a sufficient decoupling of the voltage and also a bad ripple current. Furthermore, they do not meet any safety standards. The one I used blew the ...

Based on the information by others, now I know that the backup file is just a prefixed Deflated (GZip) stream, based on this information this simple program can unpack it for you: import java.io.*; import java.util.zip.*; /** Run: javac unab.java && java unab backupfile.ab */ public class unab { private static final int BACKUP_HEADER_LENGTH = ...

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 ...

Here's my revamped script, now dubbed NEMRIS, which satisfies the question. As usual, it's freely editable by anyone, and sh-compliant as well, meaning that it can be ran from the Android shell. Actually, the script depends upon the aapt utility, can discern if the utility is installed, is able to determine whether the backupDir and the appsToBackup ...
