How to backup/restore system of K1

2011-12-02, 16:27 PM

I am thinking to try the new OS update from Lenovo, before I do that, 

is there any way to make a system backup (I can use Astro to backup applicaitons)?

In case I want to revert back if I do not like the new update.

 

Thanks.

You can't make a full image (easily)...  but you can back up your user data and restore to a previous OTA manually.

It would be really nice if we could use ClockWorkMod to back up and restore ROMS. That is a great system, I use it extensively on my other Android devices.

Those require Root I believe. The tablet has a turned on back for you Google account, but unsure how it works. I just know I saw it in the Settings. Maybe under accounts and sync. I'll check again.

I miss ClockWorkMod too. 

 

Is there an option to backup system in the recovery mode menu of K1?

Use the K1 system update option from setting, update OS from

K1_A301_04_04_111017_US

to 

K1_A301_12_12_111109_US

 

Works ok so far, no need to reinstall anything, all my applications and data were intact.
