    Hi,
    Is there any way of backing up this phone, without using Google?

    Hi ocnbrze,
    Well, ideally I'd like to back up the system, incase I'm hacked, or screw it up, and have to reinstall it.
    Thanks,

    the only way to backup the entire system would be to root the device, install a custom recovery and make a nandroid backup. you can then copy the nandroid backup onto a sd card and even your computer.

    not sure how LG's utility backup program works, but you can backup some data using it.

    i found these links for you that might help:

    https://www.lg.com/us/support/help-library/lg-bridge-download-how-to-use-CT10000026-1438110404543

    again not everything will get backed up.
    edit: never mind about the google stuff.....i forgot you said without google....sorry lol

    Hi ocnbrze,
    No, I don't think I want to go the root/nandroid route.
    I'm primarily interested in my settings and installations. of which there are only a couple. Anything other than that and I can go for factory restore (I believe).
    I'll check out the LG backup.
    Any other thoughts?

    Hi ocnbrze,
    Now I'm thinking of rooting my LGK4; but I'm wondering what the advantages of doing so would be?
