I installed Timeshift beceause I want to restore things if I mess things up.
Can I use Timeshift without messing up my dualboot (android and debian)?

Timeshift makes a perfect backup (on my SD card), but what will happens with restore? Does anyone have experience with it?

Yes you can build it self.
Follow this guide..https://linuxconfig.org/install-packages-from-an-ubuntu-ppa-on-debian-linux
1. add the repository (ppa:teejee2008/ppa) (I used Xenial for the closest to debian 9) and the key
2. build the package (timeshift) with dpkg -i *.deb

Works great!

I did different, because adding ppa.launchpad.net/teejee2008/ppa/ubuntu xenial(cosmic ) main and deb-src .... and the key , also apt-get update , etc no timeshift file found.
So I cloned timeshift: git clone https://github.com/teejee2008/timeshift, install the dependencies files and compiled it : make all and sudo make install .
after : sudo timeshift-gtk and everything is fine.
