To answer the question, no. It's not possible to extract firmware without having an unlocked, rooted Moto G. To help with your original problem, see this thread on xda-developers forum (assuming you are talking about the original 2013 Moto G, and not the newer 2014 model.) It has step-by-step instructions for flashing stock firmware onto Moto G. It links ...

Let's get it straight. I'm aware of two techniques that can root an Android device. Both has merits and demerits. Unlock Bootloader →install a custom Recovery → root device using custom Recovery This method will definitely wipe every thing because it resets the phone back to a state you received from your OEM (OTA update is exception). So if ...

Use this App - http://www.moborobo.com/products/ to make a decent backup of everything including your installed Apps. Then also copy both SD CARD and Internal Memory contents to a backup location then try your rooting. I rooted a phone and the worst happened. But i restored everything except my active chats in WhatsApp. Good luck!

When you root your android device you will loose nothing except your warranty. On some devices there are still tricks to get your warranty back by resetting the flash counter etc. You will loose nothing by the rooting process. However, there always is a slight chance that there goes something wrong and you may loose your data. I never had it myself, but I ...

If I had been in your situation, I would go for flashing stock rom onto the device and re-root it. Later, I would flash a custom recovery and do a Nandroid backup. After that, I would install apps like Link2SD (my personal favorite) to do the system apps uninstallation/moving to sd card. So the bottom line is to download the stock rom for your device (XDA ...

I asked this question some time ago and as I weren't able to fix it, I simply forgot about it. However as adb backup seems to work again for me and because it may be an issue for others I'll post here, what has changed since last time. Actually an update fixed that issue. So I guess it was a bug. I can't determine which version it was but everything works ...

Hmm that is hard luck... If it is USB enabled then you can make use of third party software to get this task.

When you plugin your device and have something like Picasa or Lightroom installed, it should show an option to import pictures from the device. If it doesn't show up, try connecting the device in PTP (photo transfer protocol) mode. Restoring this backup, is, however, manual. It is also possible to write a script to check all image files on the device by ...

I think encrypted device backups will work on that device only as long as the used passphrase does not change between the backups. If this is not the case, I think adb backups are the best, at least for apps and settings. Google remembers system settings, and backing up apps via MTP or adb or TB,etc. is possible. Keep your personal data in an encrypted ...

I do not see any perfect solution for this, however can you just go through with this procedure assuming your scenario. Find the below link where Nexus to Nexus app is being transferred. http://www.wondershare.com/mobile-phone/nexus4-to-nexus5-transfer.html

I have a GS4 that I needed to backup and unfortunately ran into this error. after a bit of head scratching (and swearing) I found a fix that I hope will work for you. I was able to find this by just running abd and scrolling through the help documentation. I found that -d is a parameter that "directs command to the only connected USB device". So after ...

A softbrick usually renders the user unable to boot into Android OS successfully and satisfactorily, and most of the time you can boot into a custom Recovery (you would be having it if you mentioned Xposed) and then use the ADB commands to restore the backup from there. ADB backup method isn't useful in case of Xposed Framework since ADB doesn't make any ...

That is the way nandroid works. Its NOT some bug. Yes, it does include /data partition but your data is stored in /data/media/0 which it skips during backup as this would lead it to backup everything inside internal memory increasing backup size significantly. In other simple words, nandroid backup's /data option includes only apps and their data, not your ...

You might be able to do it (++) with Helium or My backup which are available on Google Play, they both have a free version and a premium version , if you've updated to Android 5.0 like me your probably out of luck because the home screen has been locked down in "Lollipop" I did however get my wallpaper back by using Samsung Smart Switch but not short cuts ...

Titanium Backup PRO Key ★ root(available in the Google Play Store, by developer "Titanium Track") is the easiest way to back up your apps exactly as they are. The pay version ($5.99) should be pretty close to what you're looking for, Titanium Backup PRO Key ★ root.

Install Picasa on the computer (Google has discontinued this software, but you can get it from here). After you plug in the Android device, it'll ask for import into the library. In Settings of Picasa, there's an option to physically move photos/videos to desired folder. Check it and you are done. Next time you plug in your Android device, it'll physically ...

After the photos have been backed up, in the Google Photos app you can delete the photos by selecting the photos you want to delete and then pressing the three dots in the top right corner and selecting "Delete device copy". This will delete the copy on the phone, but leave the copy stored online safe.

In my case I realised that my backup had gotten linked to another Gmail account of mine. When I changed the backup to my original Gmail account, things went back to normal.
