    Titanium Backup can do this, methinks. But the phone has to be rooted and the Memo app might be hidden under system apps, so be careful with that.

    well, the phone isnt rooted so TiB isnt an option.... Id hate to think that id hafta ADB into the damn thing just to get the memos off it n so forth... of course verizon guys are of no help either. Its not my phone, and i dont have easy access to it to dink around with it either. Ugh, theres gotta be a way to do this without root access.

    I am almost certain there is a way, but root access is the easiest and fastest way to go, so...

    EDIT: one of my friends says he managed to backup apps+data with MyBackupPro without root, although I can't say I understand how.

    are you sure? :thinking: :thinking:
    sorry, I have to ask before I take the risk to destroy my 3000+ memos

    (I'm a crazy note taker)

    I figured out how to save your memo notes.

    1) You need a rooted phone and a Root Explorer App which enables you to browse through system folders. (Normal file explorers wouldn't work)

    2) Memo is actually a database file with the name "Memo.db" located in /dbdata/databases/com.sec.android.app.memo

    3) Goto above folder and copy the "Memo.db" to your external SD card.

    4) After format/flashing, root the phone and copy back this file to the same place.


    Even if there is an app available to do this for you, it will still require Rooted device.
