If someone with, like, a clue could teach me how to do an easily-restorable back-up of Android on my Nexus devices so I don't have to reinstall and reconfigure everything after checking in on Ubuntu Touch, I'd be stoked.

- sure it does. Google backs up everything to it's data servers w/o the limitations that icloud puts on apple devices.Feb 24, 2013
- - nope, it will only back up the application, but will ignore that application's data in most (not all) cases.
So if you 3-star every level in Angry Birds, then buy a new Android phone/tablet, Google will happily download your Angry Birds apps, but you'll be starting from scratch again.
I've poured hours into various games on various buses/trains/planes, but unless you have a rooted device with Titanium, there's little incentive to do so generally.Feb 24, 2013
- read my post again. It backs up everything that apple backs up to icloud, actually more. Apple devices do not back up data unless the app specifically supports it which is the same for data sync in android. There is no difference in that support. If I buy a new apple device, I can only sync the data for the apps that I install afterwards, whereas in Android I can sync all of my apps and if they support sync, I can sync their data too.Feb 24, 2013
- Well, I'm not sure why you're asking me to read your post again. I don't see anything new in there from the first time I read it.
However the rest of that comment there implies that the iCloud implementation is the same as Google's. That's interesting and I didn't know that. But then my own (limited) experience of iCloud, through my work colleagues who use it is that they have yet to come across an app that doesn't back up its data in iCloud.
Conversely, I've yet to find an app in Google's backup which /does/ backup its data there.Feb 24, 2013
- I've been using Carbon backup. I'm not a pro user and not keen on flashing custom ROMs, but I like the idea of backups. So I don't know if it would be fit for you, but for me it does the trick :)Feb 24, 2013
