Full Backup of non-rooted devices

I'm going to flash (format) my Samsung Galaxy S2 (both the external sd and internal sd) . My phone is not rooted. But there are some app's data that i want to backup before formatting.Those are some of my games' progress,Mozilla Firefox's history,bookmarks etc,Opera Mini history etc. , and the songs i tagged in Shazam . How am i supposed to do that since i know that you can't backup app data such as game progress if your phone is not rooted ? Also I can't access those apps, whenever I open them they constantly crash, this started 1 week ago, that's why im gonna flash my device (but this is another thread's subject). I would appreciate any help.

  • After 2 years I stumbled upon this question that I asked and it made me smile :) Anyone who comes up to this question today, just use Helium Backup. It backups your app data (game progress etc.) without root. I wish I knew this 2 years before :)
