Any way to root a K1 without wiping the tab clean?

2012-07-26, 15:52 PM

The instructions found on xda-develop and rootzwiki seem to indicate that the tablet will be wiped clean of apps and data. Is there any way to root the K1 without wiping everything clean? I'd like to backup some apps and data in preparation for flashing ICS which Mark says will also wipe the tablet clean.

 

Thanks!

You don't need to root. You can us ES File Explorer to back up apps, w/o rooting your K1.

You might be able to backup the apps with ES File explorer, but you won't be able to backup their data - the android security model sandboxes apps so that they can't access each others' data - this is why root is required for a proper backup.
