comment Can I build an APK from an installed app and its data?
@Izzy TB has two backup methods. Its normal one stores three files in the backup directory - a tar.gz containing the APK, a tar.gz containing the contents of /data/data/[app]/, and a .properties file containing what I assume is a hash of the files. The other option (under "Send this Backup" -> "easy import" writes a single .TiBkp file that I believe contains the normal three. Either way, as you said, root access is required to restore the data to /data/data/[app]/ on the target device.

comment Can I build an APK from an installed app and its data?
I have just tried ES, and it doesn't appear to include data with its backup either. (Or at least, when the backed up APK is installed on my non-rooted target device, the data I expect is not there.) As far as I can tell, ES' backup does nothing more than copy an APK from /data/apps to /sdcard/backups.
