I'm trying to back up the apks and preference data for all of the apps on my device, but it only backs up about a third of them; the remainder all have
allowBackup=false in their manifests, which disables the ability to back them up, either with
adb or with Helium.
I'd much prefer not to have to go through each of the apks one by one, extract their manifests, change them, then make them apks and add them to my device again. So is there a way of ignoring
allowBackup=false when doing
adb backup? Or, is there an app or shell command I could run that would find all of the apps with
allowBackup set to
false and set them to
I checked out this app that's supposed to do just that, but was unable to run it since it doesn't have an activity specified. If there's any easy way of getting that to work, or any alternative to it, that would be great.
