PC Backup for Android devices without root and without recovery - video tutorial

Hi friends, in today's tutorial we will talk about Android, specifically to see how we can make a backup of a smartphone or a tablet running the Android operating system, using the computer. In general, if we want to make a backup of our Android device, you have to I root device and UIM flash a recovery.
Well, today presented a method to see how we can backup the entire Android device using your computer, without being forced to have root or flash a recovery UIM our Android device, be it tablet or smartphone.
To go to work you have to install Java JDK and Android SDK as presented in Tutorial How to root LG Optimus One output a P500 with Android Gingerbread 2.3.
After you make sure that Java JDK and Android SDK installed in your computer you have to install (also in computer) Android device drivers backup plan to do. Usually package drivers and software necessary for using Android device with your PC is in your device memory or micro SD card that comes with your Android device. If you use Windows or Windows 7 8 is likely that the Windows operating system to detect and automatically install the necessary drivers your Android device when you connect it to your PC. If none of you are lucky, you will most likely find drivers on the manufacturer's website.
After we made sure that the drivers for the Android smartphone or tablet computer will be installed on the Android device to go in and make sure that we tick "USB debugging" in the Settings (Settings)> Developer options.
If you use OS Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean is very likely that the "Developer options" does not exist then you have to go to Settings> About phone (On the phone) and reach repeatedly information "Build Number". Basically through this process assets "Developer mode" to have the "Developer options" and that "USB debugging".
To see what we need to do more to invite you to watch a video tutorial because things are a little different depending on the operating system of your computer. The video tutorial I explain how to find the path where the platform-tools folder and file adb.exe that we need to go through the remaining steps.

    I'm surprised to see that - to ease everyone - a connoisseur of orders in the terminal as you, in Linux, and Windows, in a command prompt window to replace manual typing path (a path's as you like points mean!) where do backup, did not you use drag & drop that folder directly into CMD window! It would have been waaaay easier!
    Same thing to go to the location where the folder "Platform Tools" you could right click on the desktop icon SD Manager? dreata click> Properties> Find Target> after you have given double click on Platform Tools and you'd be much simpler in the same location.

  16. Congratulations tutorial, really useful tutorial. Maybe a little research your target and show us how to do root to android phones (with this method) without having to try to make all kinds of flash dangerous solutions.

  42. Hello, I followed the steps, started doing backups, I hope to be ok, but as far as telling colleagues above observe that not a whole system backup. And what's worse than poor people did root the phone changed and now when restored after the copy does not return to the default settings. Some people have lost warranty believing in yourself and you do not even answer them. And I have an Android phone for days and I do not work 2 GPS. I want to put another rom to see if it's because it's your fault or software. If you do this and can not remain in your restore defective. Do not try this version, you find another internet ma more informed. Can not find something tested so after talking to the world ..

    • All operations involving a risk like that sometimes problems occur because of inattention, others are hidden bugs (see bug samsung eMMC).
      These are all optional, not mandatory need to do.
      For each root operation, backup / restore, flash, etc must take responsibility like the big guys.
      We are not to blame for any problems occurred.
      What the hell are you children ....

    I do not come out. After I put the file name and hit enter said you can not connect to the phone, but I command adb devices to detect. I have samsung galaxy mini 1 (GT-S5570I).

  49. Sal Adrian,
    I followed the steps.
    At the command "adb devices" my device appears the list. This is not a problem.
    The problem arises when I give the final order of backup appears "unable to open C: Backupzte \ backup.ab".
    That's the name I gave to the root folder C:.
    I looked and checked and rechecked.
    Respect the exact path and name of the folder created above me and every time I give this answer. I mention Gingerbread 2.3.6.
    I have not heard to be mentioned that this method works only on Android 4.0 up.
    Wrong somewhere and really need a bigger version of Andoid?
    Thank you!

  50. No I do not know Adrian and solve your problem but if you look at previous comrntariile many users have complained that when they wanted to restore backup has not worked and Adrian himself said he did not recommend this medoda. Better do a custom backup recovery such as CWM.
    It's just my suggestion. You do what you want.

    • Well then the problem is DOA and still give would confirm that the version of Adroid in 4.0 need to root the device and otherwise might.

      • If you want to do a Nandroid backup you (ie to have all the android in a box in case you want to revert to the original version by flesh-uirea a rom to restore that back-up) about giving. But if you want your Backup contacts only photos of other possibilities with Google or Dropbox account

        • That's what I wanted to know so I do not even bother.
          I will take into account a custom recovery with CWM.
          Thanks for the reply!

          • Adrian Gudus said

            It looks like you were not quite so careful about how you tell us if it "unable to open C: Backupzte \ backup.ab" is exactly the message you receive.
            after C: there must be a "\"
            Revises written order not avoid the signs needed was probably your command of the form:
            adb backup-apk-shared-all-f C: Backupzte \ backup.ab (if it was its shape is wrong)
            The correct form was:
            adb backup-apk-shared-all-f C: \ Backupzte \ backup.ab
            Have you figured out the mistake?

  51. I help root at a phone and can not return to the original system
    my phone is samsung galaxy s advance
    please help

    • Samsung flash tool there uire the original ROMs Odin was featured here on the site. And for official ROMs there sammobile.com

  52. I checked.
    I wrote it wrong without the "\" in post but actually I used in the order.
    I tried again and get the same message:
    "Unable to open file C: \ Backupzte \ backup.ab" usb debugging checked and the devices listed by adb devices command.
    But as Alex said in a previous post may be because small version of Android 2.3.6?

  53. Please if you are able to reveal a more simple:
    Use for many years for the bakup Windows, Hiren boot cd, I say this as an example of simplicity in how to make an image and restore it inplicit. I remember those days where everyone said that it is very difficult and risky to solve this problem, even intricate solutions gave me telling me that Musa was planned to be a good programmer that. We found Hiren version, I use it dozens of times with perfect results and thank you for the tutorial posted on this path, but will ask again to find a much easier and intuitive Android bakup and if possible to specify clearly the type dispozitivuluipe that can be done (eg, tablet, smartphone) or even an explanation: if there are differences between the two, even if they have the same operating system.

    • Adrian Gudus said

      Since the title text above tutorial or tutorial is not clearly and explicitly mentions a particular model phone / tablet, you get easy to deduce that the tutorial is one general and one common method for all Android devices. If there are things that go on certain smartphone or tablet models will be mentioned (and even there are some) the section of comments from users who have encountered problems. Unfortunately we are unable to test this tutorial on several thousand smartphones / tablet and tell you exactly (but very precise) method on that model works and what does not work model. It would be a titanic work without victory for a very long time without there psoibilitatea estimate that we will finish the tests.

  54. -I am able to make a backup of 4 GB but I have not restored yet, I have a soul x1 Allview

  55. I followed the steps, everything ok until the password and create backup ... not on NMC ... which could be the cause?

  56. If you make a backup manager application can do a restore on another identical?

    • Theoretically I think so. Basically ... ..
      There are differences from device to device and I do not mean the 2 which you said they are identical, but in general. Procedure might not work at all or device on which the backup was performed either on the same. If you want to do a full backup of the operating system (Nandroid backup) to play with custom ROMs you do best using a custom recovery and CWM or TWRP. If you want to backup only pictures, contacts, progress from an application you can do with drobox, google account and other third-party applications.
      To understand better what I wanted to say I recommend you look through previous comments.

      If you've saved to your Google account, simply log on to the new smartphone with the same Google Account used on the broken and contacts should automatically sync to the new phone if on the break had activated "Sync contacts" or "sync agenda"
