    1. How to make your first backup WITHOUT root:

    Before beginning, you need to setup your ADB and have your device detected. You must also running Android version 4.0 and above. Also, make sure you have a file manager installed.

    • Connect your device and make sure its listed with the following command: adb devices
    • Run a FULL backup with the following command: adb backup -f FullBackup.ab -apk -all
    • This will create a “package” called “FullBackup.ab” on the current location in your command prompt. This is your backup package.
    • Now you can root your phone.
    • Once finished rooting, insert the “FullBackup.ab” package on your sdcard
    • Hit the menu button and look for “Extract from ADB backup” option. This will prompt you to search for the file. Use the file manager that you installed earlier and navigate to the directory and select the FullBackup.ab file.
    • Now restore like as if the backup was made with Titanium Backup. Don’t forget to make a fresh copy of the backup using Titanium Backup. You’re Done!

      (ripped from Titaniumbackup knowledge base)

      If someone would do this with a brand new unmolested device, it would make an adb backup we could all use rooted or not using adb restore.

    I did a back up but it shows the fullbackup.ap file as 0 KB....

    I am pretty sure it should be something bigger than 0kb

    Interesting... I haven't tried this, I just stuck with stock Rom when I got my replacement, I could try it tonight, see if I get the same results. But it's my understanding, this is the proper way to back the device up provided by android adb..
