Yay! @grote has been working on a free software alternative for backups on Android \o/
@radasbona If you never need to restore one, you don't need it anyway. And no, different terrain: Torsten's app is a FOSS replacement for the Google Cloud backup built-in to Android. Nothing like OAndBackup or Titanium. And I guess like that Google stuff, it won't cover apps that opted out of backup (ALLOW_BACKUP:NO). But those details are to @grote to tell.
Until now, I used an rsync-based backup via syncopoli (non-root) as well as a backup for pulling files via recovery as described here:
Still looking forward to the solution by @grote as a more end-user-friendly alternative!
There is a feature request to include this backup solution in #LineageOS. https://www.reddit.com/r/LineageOS/comments/d7p5yc/backup_solution_replacement_for_google_backup_in/
thanks @rugk 👍🏾
