Hi, what would be the best tool for backing up and restoring Android?

I'm planning to migrate my Cosmo from roll-my-own to Planet's official rooted Android, now that we know that it's the way to go for seamless OTA upgrades.

Anyway, I'd rather not use Google Drive because of, well, Google, and also, as far as I know, it will *not* include all data.

What would be the "best" tool to grab all data off the phone to PC and restore it back in? I cannot just take an image because, well, the partitions are going to change.

The other possibility is that I simply take backups of contents of specific applications where the settings matter, namely
- Nova Launcher
- SMS/MMS
- Termux scripts
- Photos & other content

...but I'm afraid I'll miss something. Any recommendations?

Got my response in the other thread. So I guess Titanium Backup is the way to go here.

Essentially: Right now I have unrooted V20 (Haven't bothered to re-root yet since there's a hotfix coming soon anyway).
So: Re-root using the community method (after next hotfix I guess)

Take backups with Titaniumbackup

=> Lock bootloader (phone gets wiped)
Install Signed, Rooted Android from Planet and re-partition with the 90/30 GB schema
Restore
