Making Backup With SP Flash Tool [Instruction] - MediaTek - Firmware and Root

1. You have a firmware

2. But you have a bootlooop

3. Send only one kernel (boot.img) and see whether the smartphone is started or not (it is very often enough of the firmware of the kernel to start the device), when the kernel is firmware, your letters will not be affected at all

4. The core firmware was not enough? Is it all the same bootlup? Send more section System (System.img), if the required data is only in the DATA section (and where else to be? Not in the system segment

) - your smartphone starts, solidize data and then so that no errors have fallen off the firmware with all sections

you are not doing this way ... it seems to me


Such a model (Lava IRIS 510 TH)? There is an option even easier, swing TWRP on the link under this video

(video itself looks no sense, it shows how to install TWRP using Rashr from the system itself), pour it with a flash (laying next to the recovery.img scatter file from the firmware), you load into it and connect the phone to the PC (possibly in TWRP settings You will need to turn on the MTP mode) and copy everything your soul from the phone

any questions? Or am I misunderstood you?

how to make a backup phone before firmware

Many Android-devices users know that experiments with firmware, the installation of various additions and corrections quite often lead to the inoperability of the device, which is correct only to install the system, and this process implies a complete cleaning of memory from all information. In the event that the user took care in advance about creating a backup copy of important data, and even better - a complete backup system, the restoration of the device to the state "as it was ..." takes a few minutes.

There are many ways to make a backup copy of certain user information or a complete backup system. What is the difference between these concepts, for which devices it is advisable to use this or that method will be discussed below.

Backup Personal Data

Under the backup of personal information, it is implied to save data and content generated by the user during the operation of the Android device. Such information can be attributed to the list of installed applications, photos made by the device chamber or received from other users, contacts, notes, music and video files, bookmarks in the browser, etc.

One of the most reliable, and most importantly simple ways to keep the personal data contained in the android device is to synchronize data from the memory of the apparatus with the cloud storage.

Google in the Android software platform is provided for almost all the possibilities for easy saving and quick recovery photos, contacts, applications (without credentials), notes and other things. It is enough to create a google account when you first start a device running android driven by any version or enter data already existing account, as well as allow the system to regularly synchronize the user data with the cloud storage. Do not neglect this opportunity.

Saving photos and contacts

There are only two simple advice-samples, as always to have a ready-made, securely saved copy of the most important for most users - personal photos and contacts, using the synchronization capabilities with Google.

  1. Turn on and configure synchronization into an ADRODOD.

    We go along the way "Settings" "Google Account" "Sync Settings" "Your Google Account" And mark the data that will be continuously copied to the cloud storage.

  2. Google Account Enabling Synchronization

  3. To store contacts in the cloud, it is necessary when you create it to point exactly the Google account.

    Google Account Contact Saving

    In the event that the contact details have already been created and saved in a place other than the Google account, you can easily export them using a standard android application. "Contacts" .

  4. Google Account Contact Export

    Working with Google's contacts is described in more detail in Article:

    Lesson: How to synchronize Android contacts with Google

  5. In order not to lose your own photos, if with a phone or tablet something happen, the easiest way to use the standard android application Google photo.

    Google photo in Google Play

    Download Google photo in Play Market

    To provide backups in the application settings, you must enable the feature "Autode and Synchronization" .

Google photo autoload

Of course, Google is not a unambiguous monopolist in backup issues of user data from Android devices. Many well-known brands, such as Samsung, Asus, Huawei, Meizu, Xiaomi, etc. supply their solutions with pre-installed applications whose functionality allows you to organize information saving in a manner similar to the above examples.

In addition, all known cloud services such as Yandex.Disk and the Mail.Ru cloud offer users when installing their branded Android applications, the automatic copying function of various data, in particular photo, in the cloud storage.

Full backup system

The above methods and actions similar to them allow you to maintain the most valuable information. But when the devices are firmware, not only contacts, photos, etc. are often lost, because manipulation of the memory sections of devices implies their cleaning from absolutely all data. To leave the ability to return to the previous state of the software and data, only the full backup of the system is needed, i.e., a copy of all or certain sections of the device. In other words, a complete clone or locks of the program part are created into special files with the possibility of restoring the device to the previous state later. This will require a user of certain tools and knowledge from the user, but can guarantee the complete safety of absolutely all information.

Where to store backup? If we are talking about long-term storage, the best way to use cloud storage facilities. In the process of saving information, the following methods are desired to use the memory card installed in the apparatus. If it is lacking, you can save the backup files into the internal memory of the device, but in this version it is recommended immediately after you create copy the backup files to a more reliable place, such as a PC disc.

Method 1: TWRP Recovery

The simplest from the point of view of the user by creating a backup is to use for this purpose a modified recovery environment - custom recovery. The most functional among such solutions is TWRP Recovery.

  1. We go to TWRP Recovery in any available way. Most often, it is necessary to press the key to enter the device turned off "Volume-" And holding it down, button "Food" .

    How to enter TWRP

  2. After entering the recovery you need to go to the section "Backup cop-e" .
  3. TWRP main thing - reserve cop-e

  4. On the screen that opens, the selection of memory sections for reservation is available, as well as a copy of the storage of copies, click "CHARITY CHOICE" .
  5. TWRP Reservation Sections, Key Change Button

  6. The best choice is the SD memory card available to save media. In the list of available storage places should be transferred to the position "Micro Sdcard" and confirm your choice by pressing the button "OK" .

  10. Copying files to the selected media, accompanied by filling out the execution indicator, as well as the appearance of messages in the log field, which are told about the currently occurring system actions.
  11. TWRP Backup Progress

  12. Upon completion of the process of creating a backup, you can continue to work in TWRP Recovery by pressing the button "Back" (1) or immediately reboot in android - button "Restart in OS" (2).
  13. TWRP Backup Creation Completed

  14. Backup files made in the way described above are stored on the way. TWRP / Backups. On the drive selected during procedure. In the perfect embodiment, you can copy the folder containing the received copy to more reliable than the internal memory of the device or the memory card, the location - on the PC hard drive or cloud storage.

Method 2: CWM Recovery + Android-app ROM Manager

As in the last method, when creating a backup android firmware will be used a modified recovery environment, only from another developer - CLOCKWORKMOD command - CWM Recovery. In general, the method is similar to the use of TWRP and provides no less functional results - i.e. Files backup firmware. At the same time, CWM Recovery does not have the necessary users to manage the process of creating a backup process, for example, it is impossible to select individual sections to create a backup. But the developers offer their users a good android application Rom Manager, resorting to the functions of which, you can proceed to creating a backup directly from the operating system.

  4. The application works in the presence of root rights, so on request it is necessary to provide them. Immediately after that, the device will reboot into the recovery and the backup will begin.
  5. CWM ROM Manager Ruth Ruth

  6. In the event that the previous step has not ended with success (most often it happens because of the impossibility of mounted sections in automatic mode (1)), you have to make a backup manually. This will require only two additional actions. After entering or rebooting in CWM Recovery, select item "Backup and Restore" (2), then item "Backup" (3).
  7. CWM Backup and Restore

  8. The backup process starts automatically and, it should be noted, continues, in comparison with other methods, for quite a long time. The cancellation of the procedure is not provided. It remains only to observe the emergence of new items in the process log and the filling performance indicator.
  9. CWM Recovery Backup Progress

    Upon completion of the process, the main recovery menu opens. You can reboot in Android by selecting "Reboot System Now" . The backup files created in CWM Recovery are stored along the path indicated when it is created, in the folder ClockMod / Backup / .

Method 5: Bacup Systems with ADB

If it is impossible to use other methods or for other reasons, to create a full copy of the memory sections of almost any Android device, you can use the OS developer toolkit - the Android SDK component - Android Debug Bridge (ADB). In general, ADB provides all the possibilities for conducting the procedure, only the root rights on the device are needed.

It should be noted that the method of rather laborious methods in question, and also requires a rather high level of knowledge of the ADB console commands from the user. To facilitate the process and automation of commands, you can contact the remote application-envelope ADB RUN, it automates the process of entering commands and allows you to save a lot of time.

  1. Preparatory procedures are to receive root rights on the device, turning on USB debugging, connecting the device to the port of YUSB, installing ADB drivers. Next, you load, install and run the ADB Run application. After the above is completed, you can switch to the procedure for creating backups of sections.
  2. Run ADB Run and check that the device has been determined by the system in the right mode. Paragraph 1 of the main menu - "DEVICE ATTACHED?" , in the discontinued list we produce similar actions, we first select paragraph 1.

    Backup Adbrun Device Attached

    A positive answer to the question is whether the device is connected in ADB mode, the ADB RUN response to previous commands in the form of a serial number.

  3. ADB RUN Us-in determined right

  4. For further manipulations, it is necessary to have a list of memory partitions, as well as information about how "disks" - / dev / block / Sections were mounted. With ADB Run get such a list is quite simple. Go to section "Memory and Partitions" (Clause 10 in the main menu of the application).
  5. Backup Adbrung Main Paragraph 10.

  6. In the menu that opens, select paragraph 4 - PARTITIONS / DEV / BLOCK / » .

    In case the method does not work, the following message is displayed:

    Backup AdBrun menu partichns method1 failure

    Execution will have to continue before the full list of sections and / dev / block /:

    Backup Adbrun Partishns Method 9 OK!

    The data obtained must be saved by any affordable way, the automatic save function in ADB Run is not provided. The most convenient way to fix the displayed information is to create a screenshot of the window with a list of sections.

  9. See also: how to make a screenshot on windows

  10. Go directly to backup. To do this, you need to go to the item "Backup" (p.12) of the main menu of ADB Run. In the list of the list, we choose C.2 - "Backup and Restore Dev / Block" then paragraph 1 "Backup Dev / Block" .
  11. Backup Adbrun Backup P2

  12. The open list shows the user all available for copying memory blocks. To proceed to preserve individual sections, you need an understanding of which section to which block is mounted. In field "Block" You need to enter the partition name from the list entitled "name" from the keyboard, and in the field "Name" - Name of the future image file. Here you will need the data obtained in step 5 of this Instruction.
  13. Backup Adbrun Backup Dev-Block

  14. For example, make a copy of the NVRAM section. At the top of the image illustrating this example, the ADB Run window with an open menu item is located. "Backup Dev / Block" (1), and under it - screenshot of the commands of command execution PARTITIONS / DEV / BLOCK / » (2). From the bottom window, we define that the name of the block for the NVRAM section is "MMCBLK0P2" and enter it in the field "Block" Windows (1). Field "Name" Windows (1) fill in accordance with the name of the copied section - "NVRAM".

    AdB Run Backup NVRAM Block Name

    After filling the fields, press the key "ENTER" What will start the copy process.

    Backup Adbrun Backup NVRAM Progress

    Upon completion of the procedure, the program proposes to click any key to return to the previous menu.

  15. Backup Adbrun Backup NVRAM Ready

  16. Similarly, copies of all other partitions are created. Another example is to save the section "boot" into the file image. Determine the corresponding block name and fill the fields. "Block" и "Name" .
  17. AdB Run Backup Boot Name Block

    Press key "ENTER" .

    Backup Adbrun Backup Boot Progress

    We wait for the end of the process.

  18. The image files obtained as a result of manipulations are saved in the root of the Android apparatus memory card. To further save, they must be copied / transfer to a PC disc or cloud storage.

ADB RUN files images as a result of backup

Thus, by applying one of the above methods, each user of any Android device can be calm - its data will be in retaining and their recovery is possible at any time. In addition, using a complete interface backup, the task of restoring the performance of a smartphone or a tablet PC after problems with the program part has a fairly simple solution in most cases.

Good afternoon, respected readers. Read in the article how to make a backup on android without root rights, or with them, what is a backup. Useful programs that will help make a backup.

Android operating system pays a lot of opportunities. The most useful of them is backup. Or backup - this function is also called so. If you fail or you lose your smartphone, you can restore almost all the information. You just need to not forget to regularly make the backup of the Android system. How exactly? This article will try to answer this article.

Bacup varieties

How to make backup on android

To begin with, let's understand what is meant by the word "backup". Usually it is called copying of certain files for their subsequent recovery. You can copy the data in the following seats:

  • Map microSD or permanent memory - You copy data to a separate file or archive, then move it somewhere yourself;
  • Computer - Bacup firmware android or copying some third-party files on the PC is usually carried out via a USB cable or via Wi-Fi;
  • Cloud services - In some cases, the backup can be automatically downloaded to Dropbox, Google disk and other similar sites.

And what exactly can I copy? This is a more serious question. The default operating system itself downloads data about your contacts, call log, messages and more. Usually it is enough for any user.

Third-party applications are able to copy and a whole media system. For example, it can be downloaded videos or music. At the same time, you often specify the folders with the desired files yourself, so the errors cannot be - absolutely everything.

There is a backup on android application settings. It works correctly, however, not on all smartphones. Yes, and not all programs give coping their settings. But you need to know about such an opportunity.

Finally, there is a complete backup on android. This is when the current firmware status is copied - completely, from the settings to some of the files hidden from the user. This is done the most difficult and often in a special way. Yes, it is required only to those who regularly experiment with their device.

Bacup on Android: Do I need root-rights?

Root Checker

Copying some files cannot be made without receiving root-rights . The fact is that the most serious operating system settings are laid deep in hidden folders. As such, the user does not have access to their reading. Rut-right to solve the problem - they provide access to copying absolutely any files.

But most often no root rights are required. For example, backing up messaging, contact book and other aspects of the Android operating system can be made without them. Moreover, this process is often carried out in automatic mode - you can not even know about it.


How to make backup on android

Android almost from the first of his versions has learned to copy user information on Google Servers.

  3. Select Google.
  4. In the window that opens, activate the switches near all items that you consider fit. Please note here and the "Application data" item. But it works not in the best way - when reinstalling the operating system or some system, many programs will still start working from scratch. But but the installation of all applications will occur automatically.

Do not forget that you need Google account for this sync. However, without it, it is possible to implement only backup android on a computer. Special applications are required for other actions, and they need to download from Google Play where without an appropriate account. Of course, there are all sorts of tricks like downloading programs from third-party resources, but this is already the topic for a separate article.

Branded software for backup on android

  • First, you can regularly copy the settings of all programs installed on the device and games. Moreover, you can copy even their APK files!
  • Secondly, you can make a backup of all operating system settings. Absolutely everyone! This means that you can do experiments without surviving about system files.
  • Thirdly, let it not concern our topic, Titanium Backup allows you to freeze the user and system software. This is useful in cases where the device is provided to the child - so you will be sure that it will definitely not accidentally install anything.

The backup will be as a separate file. In the app settings you can set exactly where to save backup. Reliable to save it to the memory card. In the Pro version you can use Box, Dropbox and Google Disc. You can also configure automatic backup - it will be created on schedule. Conducts a paid version of the program and compress files - in this case, they will occupy in your cloud storage or on the memory card less space.

Backup of all android firmware

And even Titanium Backup does not copy the entire state of the operating system. In this case, it simply does not make sense. If you achieve a system failure, and Android will not boot, then you will not be able to use the recovery - because you will not be able to run the application itself. Then how to make a backup firmware android?

Google developers have implemented another method working with Recovery Menu. .

Before making follow-up, make sure that the battery is charged at least 50%. Otherwise, there is a minimum risk of transformation of the device in "Brick".

On different smartphones and tablets, a different way to visit the Recovery menu can be used. In any case, you will need to complete the device. The following actions are usually performed:

  1. It is necessary to press the volume button;
  2. Next is clamping the power button.

Other buttons are used on some devices. For example, the devices from Samsung can also be used home button. Please note, all buttons are released after a green robot with an exclamation mark appears on the screen. Otherwise, an ordinary reboot will occur.

How to make backup on android

For Windows operating systems and Mac OS X, many programs that serve to receive data from the smartphone are written. Developers of software that regularly test portable devices and experiment with them usually use ADB. . This is a special program that serves to debug a smartphone or tablet. It does not have any interface, and all actions are carried out by entering the corresponding commands. But before that, you need to enable USB debugging on the smartphone. This is done as follows:

  1. Go to "Settings".
  2. If you have never turned on USB debugging, then you will most likely need to visit the "phone" section. Here, click on the "Assembly number" item, until you receive a message about what has become a developer.
  3. Now go back to the Main Settings menu and click on the "For Developers" button.

For example, make such a backup on android application MyPhoneExplorer. . This computer application has an understandable Russian-speaking interface, it does not ask for any text commands. Therefore, you will not be difficult to create a backup copy on your own. We just say that this program requires the activation of debugging by USB.
