    Backup before root

    Hello all,
    I had used the zerg rush temp root method in the past for being able to run Titanium backup to restore/backup my apps. Now there is the perm root method which requires use of the HTC bootloader unlock.

    From what I understand, this will wipe my device. So i'm trying to find a way like Zerg Rush (which doesn't seem to be working) so that I can backup apps before I have to wipe everything. Does any one have any suggestions? Does Zerg Rush no longer work on the current stock rezound build since the last update or is it just my phone being funky. thanks everyone!

    I think you can back up apps with astro if titanium isn't working but it will not backup the apps data.

    After the OTA temp root no longer works. Your best bet is mybackup(pro)

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    I was afraid of that. manual backup (including my backup pro without root) just don't backup much. certainly not the data contained within a program (such as game saves, app configuration, etc) except for a few apps made to work with it. Dang, I want my root back, but i'm going to loose data which kinda defeats the purpose..... Well, I guess I just better finish the games I have going, lol and maybe a tool will come along before I want to upgrade from my Rezound...

    thanks for the feedback guys ( and sorry for my delayed response!)

    Hey Solar, I feel your pain... I was on the last level of Jelly Defense when I rooted, forgetting a regular back-up did not back-up the saves Good luck....

    On another note, sorry to jump in to your thread... but can you port over a built in app from one rom to another with a backup? this is what i mean, I LOVE the Gmail app for ICS and was wondering if i back it up, can I restore it into GB?

    Nope, it's written for ICS. You can certainly upgrade to an ICS ROM and use it. The only thing the current ICS Roms are missing is the data arrows(the arrows that show that data is being used)

    Just coming over from a thunderbolt. Finished rooting my rezound a little bit ago and was looking for some educating. With the thunderbolt, I use ROM manager and TI backup. With the rezound, how do I make rom backups and backup my info?

    Thanks for the help
