Android :: A Few Data Backups ?

Jun 30, 2010

Phone: nexus one

Love android....and love n1, but got a few issues/?'s

1) are my phones settings saved to my Gmail acct?

In SETTINGS>PRIVATE I have it set to "backup my settings".....I'm assuming this is to my Gmail account?

But after my one and only hard reset, all of my settings carried over except my text message settings.

In MESSAGING>SETTINGS>STORAGE SETTINGS I have it set to no limit to the amount of texts to save. I have one really important thread I don't want to lose. But after the hard reset, it went back to the factory default of only keeping 200. So I lost about 2 months of texts when I carried on as if the message storage settings were then same as before the hard reset.

After hard reset, I didn't lose the thread entirely. Just everything over the 200 limit. Oh well....I'm not getting em back, but I'd like to fully understand where I went wrong in my understanding of android/Google/gmail.

2) since i didnt lose the thread entirely, does this mean my texts are saved/backed up to my Gmail account? If not, where are they backed up if at all?

I'm beginning to think that this is the way it works (please correct me where I'm wrong):

- Gmail acct: saves most android phone settings, app history, contacts, email threads
- SD card: app data, pic & music data
- Phone flash memory: text threads & settings, internet bookmarks, apps
- Sim card: ?

3) Couple things....now moving forward:

Bought a new SIM card so I could get a new number/same phone.
- I want to put in new SIM
- do a hard reset
- login to my gmail
- keep my old internet bookmarks
- keep my old text threads from my old number
- keep my old settings
- re-download my old apps if necessary

How will a new SIM affect my situation/intentions?

General :: TWRP On SGS2 T989 - Backups / Rotation Data Under Wipe Menu?

Jul 9, 2012

I have a few questions about TWRP. I have been using it for a while now on my SGS2 t989 hercules variant and I like it alot but there are some things I am not sure about.

First when I make backups is it okay to only backup the System,Data,boot for regular backups? Or Should I just check everything system,data,boot,recovery,cache,.android_secure,sd-ext? Also if I make a data backup is that okay to restore after flashing a new rom instead of using titanium? I would think not but I want to know for sure.

Next thing is under the wipe menu, what is rotation data? I have never heard of it before. So should I wipe it once in awhile when I wipe the cache and dalvik?

Motorola Droid :: Backups And Contacts

Jun 30, 2010

So, I use Clockwork Recovery and all things associated with ROM Manager and Cyanogen Mod.I have lost all of my contacts. I perform full backups prior to installing a new version of CM.Can I recover my contacts and only my contacts?And before anyone reminds me: yes, I know about Google Sync.There's a problem with that: my gmail account was hijacked. I was able to recover it, and everything is now thoroughly locked down with insane passwords. But I just discovered: all my contacts on my phone, at least the majority of them, have disappeared.And worse, in the Contacts area of Gmail, there are ZERO contacts. My contacts got completely wiped! So.. kind of in a pickle, where Sync has made things worse by syncing one way, and not the other way! It forced the contacts off my phone, instead of uploading the contacts on my phone to Google! What's up with that?

Motorola Droid X :: Using Backups With Bootstrap

Aug 26, 2010

I have no problem restoring from backups, but has anyone successfully done this and not had the incorrect password with motoblur error? If so, how? I can't for the life of me do a backup and not get that error so it's kind of making backups pointless right now since we need communication with blur for the update service to get the OTA froyo update.

HTC Incredible :: How To Manage Recovery Backups?

Nov 1, 2010

You can do a backup from within Rom Manager, Also from within Recovery. But if I do a backup in Rom Manager, it wont help me if I am in a bootloop right? Because I have no way to enter Rom Manager. So I do backups within Recovery also. But I don't see a way to name, or label them. Does anyone have a good system worked out other than keeping notes on a notepad?

HTC Eris :: Restoring Nandroid Backups

Jul 10, 2010

I have a question about restoring nandroid backups. I have quite a few ROMs saved as backups, for switching if I want to try something else. I have White Widow 4.4 installed right now, and am apparently stuck with it since when trying to roll back to Aloysius or anything else. When I go to restore a back up, after wiping dalvik/data, I get this error. Error : run 'nandroid-mobile.shrestore' via adb! What the heck are they talking about? I hope this isn't something simple and stupid, but I am out to sea right now with no access to my computer. Please assist! Thanks guys! Also, WW4.4 rules.

Motorola Droid :: ROM Manager Not Work / No Backups

Jun 23, 2010

So I followed droid-life.com instructions on rooting and installing Froyo FRF57. I'm currently running Froyo but thought it would be nice to upgrade my ROM to Jrummy Kangerade 1.0. So I paid for the premium Rom Manager and have tried doing the backup Rom feature. It reboots my phone and does nothing. No backups appear in Rom manager.

Okay, so I said forget it. I'll just install the ROM. So it goes through the whole process and says it needs to reboot and then nothing happens. It doesn't reboot at all. I try manually rebooting and it doesn't do anything. Is there a trick to make this software start working?

General :: TouchWiz Firmware - Previous Backups Were Gone?

Oct 3, 2013

I'm not sure what I must've done. But nevertheless my stock Touchwiz firmware from my Galaxy S3 is gone. I must've deleted it while doing a factory reset, because my play store was acting up.

I would like to flash back to stock Touchwiz on my phone but when I looked for it on ROM Manager and in recovery all my previous backups were gone. So I was wondering if there is a way to get my stock firmware back or maybe even retrieve it from my phone from someplace it could be hiding.

Some more info: I am running CyanogenMod 10.1.3 and rooted with clockwork mod. This is on my Samsung Galaxy S3. And I am with T-Mobile on a contract in the United States.
