The Contacts will be a part of the Backup->data (not Backup->Apps & Media)
Also, note that there are append options in the Menu->Options of the application. This will restore the items in the backup without deleting the current ones on the phone first.
So, if you have new SMS messages that you dont want to lose, but you want o restore your old SMSes in the backup, you can turn on Append SMS and restore. Keeping the old ones too!
You might also consider adding the feature to allow more than one scheduled backup. I would like to schedule a daily online and weekly sd card backup.
Thanks for the suggestions, we are looking into this for the future.
Did you know PC World has reviewed MyBackupPro? Nice review!
Great write up indeed!
Thanks for sharing!!!
I like My Backup Root and only have problems here and there. It is supposed to be able to restore sys settings even between ROMs w/o a hitch, but I doubt they can always account for every scenario. GirLuvsDroid wrote up a great How-To for restoring w/ TiBu here to avoid system restore problems.
I use Launcher Pro which has a built in backup for home screens minus widget saving (but a cpl widgets is no biggie), so maybe consider that option for your home screens.
Hope this gets you closer
The beauty with MyBackup Root, is it allows all Root users, novice and rookies, to be able to easily backup\restore their phone. Not all Root users are as technical as the people on this forum.
I see a new version was pushed out today. Any new features?
Here is the change log for the new version. If you are interested in any change in the application between versions, we have a Release Notes page on our website site here: RerWare MyBackup Pro: Android Backup Application Version Release Notes (backup Android, Nexus One, Motorola Droid, G1, Hero, MyTouch, etc...)
- Root users support for new Android Market links.
- Option for Append Call Log.
- Default name of backup now includes the date.
Thanks for the support. I have had MyBackup Pro for the past month and it is working fine on my Orange San Francisco.
Couple of queries though, I notice that my version is V2.6.0 = how do I get an update to v2.6.2?
Also, just had a look at my scheduled backups and I have 13 or 14 listed from today backwards. This will presumably fill up my sd card eventually, what have I done wrong. I don't want so many. Can I select the number of scheduled backups or do I have to go into manage and delete some of them from time to time?
Also, if I do a manual backup (which I normally do after I have installed/removed something, I assume this is incremental ie it replaces the existing one(with the same name of course)?
Sorry if my questions are a bit stupid but having read this thread it has made me curiouser and curiouser.............................
-You can update either from the Android Market, or download it from our website RerWare, LLC: Android Backup and BlackBerry Backup - MyBackup Pro
-There is a settings to keep how many backups during the schedule screens.
-Manual backups will be complete backups, replacing a current one with the same name if it exists.
Done update via website - Couldn't update via the market (without paying again!!) and it isn't listed as one of "my apps" in the Market but I have selected "Update automatically" so hopefully I will keep up-to-date in the future.
Regarding schedule, I have set my schedule to retain 5 schedules (daily at 1205) but at the moment there are 14 or 15 listed (17th - 31st incl). I deleted previous ones "manually". Seems the selection of numbers to keep isn't working (for me).
Otherwise, all is good and an excellent app.
Try to uninstall the app, reboot the phone, and install it again.
Will see if it "reduces" the 14 schedules listed to the 5 I have selected or will it start counting from the next schedule? We shall see.
Have set up a new "Schedule" so will see tomorrow when it runs.Thanks.
Yep, it's tomorrow now and all is working fine.
The "schedule" worked fine and it is just listing the 5 I have selected.
Manual backups also working fine so thanks for everyone's help with this.
Excellent, efficient and speedy app.
Great! Thanks for letting us know the result.
I just wanted to caution MybackupPro users who may be new to rooting. I probably did something wrong, but I recently updated my EVO root ROM to Supersonic 3.70.651.1 and updated Amon_RA to the latest I could find 2.2.1 I think. Then I tried to restore from MybackupPro. I believe that something in the backed up files (backed up while rooted) have flags that conflict with Market. I reflashed and reloaded several times. Each time I restored from MybackupPro, most of the restored apps went into forced close and gave errors about the Market not being available. I then reflashed and used the App List Backup to restore my app list from the Market. I've had no issues in several days. But I lost all the data that was in the apps that I had backed up with MybackupPro.
I am still using it to backup my apps, because I believe it will work fine as long as I don't change ROMS and try to restore apps backed up on one version and then restored to a newer version.
LOVE This MyBackUp Root. It works WAY better than titanium (actually reinstalls APK + Date).
Definitely buying pro version.
Looks like the busybox option cut my backup time from about 90 minutes to just under 60. Thanks for adding that!
@lexluthor: Yes, the BusyBox option does increase the speed a Lot.
@barqers: Thank you very much! We really appreciate your support!
@Smiles: You can try to restore just the Data portion of the backup of installing the applications from the Android Market...
Also, now there is an option to use Busy Box which speeds up the backup quite a lot!
Forgive my naivete...but I have a QUESTION:
What is the reason one would want to "break" an app link to the market?? I was just wondering the need/reason/purpose/benefit for this option...
We will be releasing version 2.6.5 soon, it will support Android 2.3 and even allowing it to restore between Android 2.2 and 2.3 (or even 1.5 to 2.3 and V.V for that matter)
Hope you guys like it!
WHY/HOW way better? Just interested in your experience and what problems you might have seen??
