You might wish to take a look at Full Backup of non-rooted devices. If you're only concerned about your apps and their data, check Helium Backup.

comment Samsung galaxy s duos 2
You're assuming golak has a rooted device (TiBu requires root). But the question doesn't state this. You should at least name important requirements like this ;)

comment android app automation
While this doesn't directly answer my question, according to this page you're looking for a API to develop with. This site is for users of Android, which means that questions about development/programming are off-topic here (see our help center for details). You might wish to consult Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? for a fitting place to your question.

comment Google Contact Sync Problem
You could try "resetting" your contacts app (Settings→Apps, look for "contacts", open, "clear cache" and "delete data" – just for safety, create a local backup before from within the contacts app using Menu→Import/Export→export to SDCard). Your contacts are still saved on Google's servers, and should be sync'd back soon (if not, you can always restore the backup).

comment Add contact without using “Google account”?
Basically the same as described in this answer, and a fallback in case the procedure described there doesn't work.

Are you looking for a) advise on developing such an app, or b) an existing app which can do what you describe?

comment How do I import all contacts from a SIM-card to an Android phone?
1) Isn't this the same as this answer describes? 2) OP referred to the "original Wildfire" (no "S") ;)

comment Is this command safe to run from / as root
You can always replace rmdir by something like ls or echo for a "dry run" to see what would happen.

comment Get Contacts of galaxy s2 with broken screen
That's one of our often asked questions (see e.g.: How do I backup data (SMS/contacts) from a device with a broken screen?). Please check if any of these questions help you out.

comment Why is “Android OS” uploading so much data?
After your edit, it looks fine (must have escaped me before, sorry for that). Maybe you want to include a third solution: restrict background data to "Android OS". This would disable backups while on mobile data – but still have them enabled while on WiFi. So they no longer affect your mobile data plan, but you don't have to disable those backups altogether. After that, we might clean up our comments here ;)

comment problem with root s4 gt-i9515
Guess you're mixing things up here. To root a device, you don't need a special ROM. And your issue is: Never use two "SuperUser" apps simultaneously, that always gives trouble. There are ways to replace one by the other, maybe that would solve your issue. But to tell that, maybe you can edit your question and specify what exactly "not working" is supposed to mean?
