Ours is not an app backup and doesn't try to be.
This is strictly an sd card backup, known to work with some phones, not all, so you will want to verify it by giving it a try before trusting it. If our method doesn't work for you, then you have to mount as USB storage when you plug in your phone and use drag and drop to backup your sd card.
Hope this helps!
Thanks, it does help!
What about my settings and firmware, can they be backed up? Regular phone settings and settings for installed free and paid apps?
Can my firmware be backed up? I already have a copy of the firmware I found online so maybe it's not required...
