    I don't know why this isn't more widely known.... I only discovered it by accident. :thinking:

    Orange Backup is a rather impressive backup solution that allows full CWM-compatible nandroid-type backups to be done without booting into recovery, and optionally upload them to Dropbox, Google Drive or an FTP server.

    It's a frontend GUI to the Online Android tool, which has just been updated to v7.00 and now supports the /preload partition on Samsung devices.

    Thanks :slug:

    Not for the Orange tip but for the onandroid app which I did not know about until you mentioned it.










    (Has anyone ever seen Top Gear's, "The Stig", and Slug in the same room together :hmmmm: )

    Yes, onandroid is a good app. I was examining the scripts a while back, and its very well written indeed.

    My gut feelings are though to stick with CWM backups. Don't get me wrong, onandroid backups will certainly do the job, and a damn good one at that, but I always prefer to do it when the system is not booted as I feel safer in the knowledge that no files are being changed in the background whilst the backup is taking place.

    Hi,

    I am the author of Orange Backup.

    Thank you for your post.

    Just want to add something, 1.19 version (last) manages TWRP backup too :)

    I asked to your website for a review... without getting an answer. However I did something very stupid, I asked during XMas (it probably explains why I didn't got an answer).

    However, I am sure it is not too late to do such review :) ;)

    Regards

    Hi Hawker,

    I have to say I am more on XDA, but I am come here to read different things, both forum are very complementary. But I don't write a lot.

    If anyone have a bug report / feature request, you can of course use the form included in the application, but don't hesitate to ask me here.

    Regards

    Oops, I didn't think to check if you were a member here Snoopy. My apologies. :eek:

    Xmas is a busy time for everyone, as you know. The CES event also occupied a lot of attention from the Phandroid staff.... hit them up again and you should get a response.

    Thanks for your work.
