Orange Backup Sends a Nandroid to the Cloud with One Click

Given that most of us have rooted and heavily modified our mobile devices, backups are vital to ensure that the next big tweak doesn’t result in the next big data loss. As we’ve discussed before, the occasional Nandroid backup is extremely important. The ability to create backups is not only important to keep data safe from being wiped, but it’s also a handy troubleshooting tool that can help recover from soft bricks. Now there is an app that will do a one-click backup and store it on your favorite cloud storage service.

XDA Senior Member snoopy33 has released Orange Backup. It’s a simple application to use, and it provides an essential service for all rooted users. Essentially, the app will perform a full backup and upload it to either Dropbox or Google Drive. All of this is done without forcing a reboot or a session in recovery. This makes it great for the root user on the go. Here are some more features:

* Easy Backup of your Device
* Backup format: Nandroid (backup of absolutely ALL your data on your device)
* Automatic Zip of the Backup (with split zip option)
* Automatic Upload to Dropbox OR Google Drive
* Backup Planning every X days
* Lots of advanced option (incremental backup, partition selection…)
* Request patch file if not yet available
* Uninstall any system application, not just freeze it
* Kill any task (even system/hided one)
* Elegant Interface

Coincidentally, ClockworkMod Recovery has been incorporating a similar feature. As always, what makes Android great is the options and there are at least two good ones for making backups and sending them away to be retrieved later.

Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor.
