    Android full backup app

    I suspect what I want doesn't exist, but I thought I would see if I've just missed something (not the first time).

    As far as I can tell there is no full backup app for Android, one that essentially clones what is on the device and restores it seamlessly if you do a factory reset. I've tried both Sprite Backup (largely useless) and MyBackup Pro (kind of like movers-- you get all your stuff back, but you have to still put everything together).

    My expectations are shaped by coming from a Palm TX where we had an app called NVBackup that literally cloned and fully restored the device. I know there are more complications here, not the least of which is that some paid apps can't be backed up. That's ok, if it would restore the full system and apps and databases that can be backed up. Instead, I get my launcher back, but it has the default configuration of icons and not my setup.

    I'm not rooted and am not looking to do that-- maybe there is a solution like I want for rooted phones. I can't imagine wouldn't want a better recovery solution if they are experimenting.

    So, is this just life with Android (which I love, by the way, as I do my N1) or did I miss something?

    Alot of the Good Backup Apps (like Titanium Backup) need Root Access to function. The Amon Ra Custom Recovery has an option called Nandroid Backup/Restore that will Clone your Current setup Completely and save it to the SD Card. But again You need to unlock your Bootloader to use this. Is there a particular reason why you dont want to Root the N1?

    Yeah, I suspected if there was a solution it would require root. Just not my style to root. I'd probably not Jailbreak if I had an iPhone. That's not a rational explanation, I know.

    Maybe eventually...

    I realize this thread is a little (but not much) old, but what about the built in backup?

    Back up my settings

    Check to back up your phone's settings to Google servers, with your Google Account. If you replace your phone, the settings you've backed up are restored onto the new phone the first time you sign in with your Google Account. If you check this option, a wide variety of settings are backed up, including your Wi-Fi passwords, bookmarks, a list of the applications you've installed, the words you've added to the dictionary used by the onscreen keyboard, and most of the settings that you configure with the Settings application. If you uncheck this option, you stop backing up your settings, and any existing backups are deleted from Google servers.
    Is that close enough? Its built in so no root...

    What about "My Backup Pro" from the Android Market? It's gotten good reviews. I personally never use it because I'd rather use a combination of backup programs to backup only the most vital things (like SMS, Call Logs, Maybe Applications, Bookmarks).

    iTunes does this for the iPhone and I really liked that resource and the peace of mind that if I did something stupid, I had a full backup. I am not a "jail break" person and never wanted to open the hood and look inside so I am not likely to "root" my N1 but you never know. I have not seen a good explanation of what I would gain by doing this so I don't feel any real motivation to fiddle with a good/great thing. I will be checking out My Backup Pro once I get things set up.

    Could you give me a step by step way to do this, I am not sure what "If you uncheck this option" refers to. I understand what the original poster would like and I feel the same way.

    Thank you
