I am considering to root my device som I get all access to Tasker. If I root can I backup contacts, apps etc. or will I lose it all? JB might come very soon. Maybe best to wait with root until JB is roller out?
So I flash new ROMs on my phone constantly and I would never be able to bear being such a flash whore without titanium backup. I'd like to root my nexus but I keep reading it deletes everything and as dumb as it seems, I want to keep my Garfield data! I've read about nandroid backup but it does the same image right?
I've had my Nex7 for a few weeks now and I've decided to take the plunge and root it. I know how to do it (having done it on my GNex some time ago) but the problem is that I'd rather not lose everything on the tablet and start again.
I'm new to rooting, but I tried it last night and it seemed to work. I used Nexus Root Toolkit and Android Toolkit to backup my SMS, call logs, contacts, virtual SD card, and all apps. I unlocked bootloader, rooted, and installed TWRP, cyanogenmod, and kitkat 4.4.4.
I then tried to restore my backup; sms, logs, and contacts restored perfectly, however the apps don't fully restore.
i want to root my Galaxy Note 2 and i don't want to change my current (default) android firmware (4.1.1 i believe), is it possible to root the device without installing the new firmware.
I am trying to root my evo 4g with hboot 2.18 without losing my apps or the app data so I can transfer them to my new galaxy s3. Kids would freak if I lost their angry birds progress. I used the non htcdev, non enrevoked3 method to get most of the way there. I have unlocked bootloader and think I got root. I flashed a rom and lost everything but had root access on apps..
If you currently own a rooted Android device, or flashed a custom ROM, chances are you’ve taken at least one nandroid based or titanium based backup of your system settings and application data. As you know, in order to take either of these backups, root access is required.
What about if you want to unlock your bootloader after you’ve been using your device for several months?
Hello everybody, I'm new here :) And I got newbie question.
I want to root and install Custom ROM'S to my device(I know how to that), I'll make my stock ROM 4.1.2 backup(in CWM). I was searching, and found, that I can un-root my device(get back warranty), but every tutorials says, that I will need download stock rom from Sammobile, but there arent firmware from my region.
