Helium is the missing app sync and backup solution for Android. Helium does NOT require root. All Android users can use Helium to backup and sync Android applications.
Helium lets you backup your apps and data to your SD card or cloud storage. With Helium, you can sync app data from your other Android devices-- even if they are not on the same network. Set up backup schedules with Helium, and never lose data again.
Helium Setup 1. Install Helium on Android a) Root user? You're done! 2. Install and run Helium Desktop (link below) 3. Connect Android to computer. a) You may need to set your USB Connection Mode to "PTP". (Nexus 7, Nexus 10, etc) 4. Helium on Android should now be enabled.
Why do you need so many Permissions? Contacts - Backup call log and sms SMS - Backup call log and sms Accounts - Backup and restore from Drive Phone State - Uniquely identify phone for Android to Android sync Read Logs - Debugging and bug reports Wifi - Make sure scheduled backups only happen on wifi
Not working. Unable to restore applications as the .json file didn't created upon the creation of the backups. After transferring the "carbon" folder on internal storage from my old ROM to new ROM, none of the backups could be detected as there is no .json file in each backup folder. Please fix the app ASAP and I will put back a 5 -star rating. I can provide more information upon request. Thanks.
