Backuping up unrooted Android device

Post by CharlesF »

Anyone know if I can backup and restore unrooted Android phones using USB Image tools.

Thanks.

I don't think, you can make a useful backup with it. I assume, there are more information stored on an android device, than the data, that is accessible via mass storage. I assume, just restoring an image to a new hone won't make that device 100% identical to the original device, but I'm not totally sure here.

Thanks for the response. I was thinking about backing up and restoring a single device?

Btw, is there anyway to examine an image and extract data from it. I thinking not but though I'd ask.

You can mount an image with OSFMount.
