    What is the best program to make a backup for all the data at once? I do not want incremental backups but one backup file of the entire phone.

    ROM Manager, though it does need root.

    ROM Manager - Android app on AppBrain
    ROM Manager (Premium) - Android app on AppBrain

    You can backup the entire system state. It essentially makes an image of your phone as it is at the time you make a backup.

    I suggest the premium version. It's that good.

    For system settings and apps and their date, Titanium Backup is the premier app.

    http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.keramidas.TitaniumBackup.

    Free and paid as well...very good for making backups, and you have many options for what you can back up. You can set schedules for automatic backups too.

    Agreed. If you are rooted a nandroid backup is a complete snapshot of your phone at that point.

    Most custom ROMs allow you to create a nandroid backup without having to download any additional apps.

    Can someone tell me the best settings to use for titanium backup? This app with its chuck norris mode and millions of options confuses me. I want to back up everything, as is, because I want to delete some of this sprint junk on here. Thank you!

    Is there a backup app that doesn't require root? Titanium says it requires root.

    I use My Backup Pro and its worked fine for me in my unrooted world. You can backup to the sd card or online and schedule it. 2 options to back, apps and phone data (phone settings, playlists, mms, call log etc)

    sorry for posting this toooooo late....

    but ROM manager will not backup everything ... it just backup your rom ... but for your personal data (contacts, SMS .. etc) you need to have another application:

    - Titanuim Bakup
    - Android Backup
    - or any other thing


    DO NOT rely of Rom Manager to backup your personal data


    Thanks

    Hello, as of today, which is the best app to clone/backup the entire non-rooted Android phone against theft and phone's failure? I have a list but further suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

    Keis (Mac/Windows versions), Keis Air, AppMonster Pro Backup Restore, MyBackup Pro.

    Hi, MonarchX! There are a few pretty great backup apps for Android, but our favorite has to be Titanium Backup. It requires a rooted phone, but you can backup and restore apps from Dropbox, run automatic batch backups, and even uninstall crapware. Titanium can backup just about anything—apps, app data, and even SMS and MMS data, and attempt to restore it to a new phone or new ROM. It doesn't always work, but I'm continually shocked at how much of my data it can restore to new, completely different ROMs or phones. You have tons of control over your backups, with the ability to set complicated schedules, back up different kinds of data on different schedules, and even back up directly to your Dropbox.
    Titanium Backup is more than just a great backup app, too—it's like a swiss army knife for Android phones. With the ability to remove crapware, move apps to and from the SD card, and the ability to delete data left over from old apps, it's really a must-have for any rooted Android user. If you only pay for one app from the Market, make it Titanium.

    I have the free ROM Manager v5.5.3.0 installed and I just purchased the Premium License for it, but it will not install properly, any suggestions, since the developer is now non-existent or is not answering my emails. Where can I get a Redeem Code?

    I would go for try uninstall and reinstall your license then a reboot.
