    Hi there,I want to factory reset my phone after the recent update but dont want to loose everything.How does everyone else back stuff up? Whith the iphone I could back up to icloud then do a factory reset and then when I restored from icloud my phone went back exactly the same.Is there a similar way to do this on the S3? Would it be Kies? Im not sure what Kies is and have never used it.Thank you

    There are a couple of solutions. If you are rooted, Titanium backup or My Backup root. My Backup also has a free version that will still do like 5 backups.

    I tried Carbon but it won't connect and messed up my USB drivers so my phone won't connect anymore either.

    edit - stripped the Samsung USB drivers off and reinstalled. set my phone to PTP and all worked out.
