    Morning all, welcome to Friday, and the beginning of the weekend ;)

    Curious, which app for Android will allow me to create a backup, and if necessary perform a restore of all my data, and more importantly ALL my device settings? (like iTunes does).

    I've tried MyBackup Pro, but I believe that is more about data, than settings, no?

    Thanks in advance


    Ivan

    PS: My device is stock, i.e. not hacked in anyway, and it won't be either:)

    ...currently it seems to root the HTC One X, is a rather lengthy process. Unless someone can point me elsewhere?

    Clearly I have no option, if I want to use Titanium Backup. Any other options, anyone?

    not sure if there is one, i thought all of these backup apps were when you were rooted which you dont want to do.

    Anyone else out there know of any he can use to back up without have to root.

    Try "HTC sync" its a pc software for HTC that permits you to back up and restore

    Here is the link:

    HTC Sync Manager


    Hope it helps

    This Titanium Backup app is clearly missing on non-rooted phone.
    I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, but this morning I installed lookout on my phone: https://www.mylookout.com/
    Does backup of contacts (free version, can do a little more in paid version), but also antivirus and phone location in case you loose it (that was the main point for me).
    I also use the HTC Sync, but since I have the phone for less than a week, didn't really look into what it does more than synching some data.
