Backup Android Phone : How to use Carbon App Sync and Backup
Saturday 06th of April 2013
Most people neglect backing up their devices. Normally this isn’t so much of a problem as contacts and calendar events are automatically stored in the cloud, and Google can backup device settings too. To the other extreme, we have the likes of Titanium Backup, a comprehensive backup application for power users with root privileges.If you find that the built-in Google Backup isn’t comprehensive or reliable enough for you and that Titanium Backup is overkill for you, then Carbon App Sync and Backup, made by the same team who made ClockworkMod Recovery, can provide an excellent intermediate-level solution. Bonus — it doesn’t your device to have root access, but it helps.In this post, learn how to use Carbon App Sync and Backup for creating backup copies of your data and files, as well as for syncing two or more Android devices. You may also watch the video tutorial towards the end of this post.To root or not to rootCarbon Backup offers advantages to those who are brave enough to root their device. However, this route isn’t for everyone. Some devices are eas
How to move an app from data/app to system/app? - Android Development - Android Forum - A Community For Android Users and Enthusiasts

Question for all you pros out there. I was wondering how to move an app to system/app that is currently installed in data/app. I have Nova launcher right now but it installed as a data file but I want to run it as a system file so I can have the widgets in the app drawer. I have used Fatsix's transparent status/nav bar in which his mod reinstalled nova into the system file. Once that happened I was able to have the widgets in the app drawer. Since then I have upgraded to a newer version of the CND ROM and the transparent mods don't support it so I am looking for a way to make the move manually. Any ideas? I apologize if this doesn't make any sense, I am still learning
How to restore Direct Dial icon/shortcut
Sunday 09th of September 2012
My terminology is probably not correct. I just received my first smartphone from Google - Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.1.1.After getting connected without any optional apps installed. I started playing with the UI to get familiar with how it worked by temporary (I thought) changes to the home screen. I removed the Direct Dial icon and added a Settings icon and created a folder. Now I can't find how to restore the Direct Dial icon to the home screen. The functionality is still there through using the widget but I can't move that onto the home screen as an icon as it runs the application when released. I have read references to accessing shortcuts by long touching the home screen but on this phone that appears only to open an option to select a different wallpaper. I don't find the Direct Dial application when listing all the apps under settings > apps. Nor have a found it listed in the app store.Any way to get the standard direct dial icon back on the home screen?

My wife accidentally deleted the "Restaurants" icon in Google Navigation (on the search page). She tried re-adding "Restaurants" but the icon is not the same as the original (a plate with a fork and a knife). Does anyone know how to restore the original icon? Thanks.

How to restore lock screen settings.
Wednesday 22nd of January 2014
So I finally un-installed Foxfi now that I no longer have an unlimited data plan and Verizon does not charge a monthly fee for hotspot. The problem is I cannot restore some of my lock screen options such as swipe and facial recognition. None is also blacked out, but that is my current setting. I am afraid if I changed the setting I would also lose "none". When installing foxfi these were turned off by an administrator, encryption policy or credential storage change. Short of a nuclear factory reset... Does anyone know how to restore these settings? Sent from my SCH-I605 using AC Forums mobile app
How to restore deleted phone contacts HTC One M7

Can anyone tell me how to restore deleted phone contacts? Somehow I managed to wipe the phone contacts, all other options in the people app are still there, whatsapp, google etc, but I cant find out how to reinstate the contact I deleted. I tried to restore from a backup, as the phone automatically backs up every 24 hours, but for some reason the option to restore back ups is greyed out
How to restore from google account?
Monday 11th of August 2014
I just had my Nexus 7 (2013) serviced by Asus and they reset it to factory settings. Before sending it to them, I made sure "Back up my data" was checked and my backup account was my gmail account. However, I can't figure out how to restore it to its previous settings, and I can't find instructions anywhere. I was under the impression that a restore process would re-install all my apps (hopefully in the right folders and screen arrangements), remember wi-fi and app passwords, restore my settings, etc. Can I do this? If so, how? Also, the "Back up my data" checkbox is now checked. (I'm not sure whether Asus shipped the repaired unit this way, or whether I checked it since receiving it.) Is it possible that, because of this, my tablet has already been "backed up" to its current, factory-reset condition, meaning I've lost all my previous settings? I sure hope not. Thanks for any help!Bruce
