    How do I backup my personal data before a Factory Reset?

    With 50+ apps and many games installed on my TF101; losing all of that data would be very devastating. Does anybody here know how to backup all that personal data?

    A hard reset will not erase anything. A Factory Reset will erase everything. Here are the instructions for the hard reset.
    Hard Reset:
    Unplug the power cord and shut the unit off and Press and Hold the power button and the Down volume button together for 6-10 seconds and let them both go. You should see a little shape in the middle of the screen so just press and release the Down volume button again and let it reboot. If you own the dock be sure and do this with the dock connected.
    Current Devices:
    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition - Dell Venue 11 Pro Bay Trail (On Order) - LG Optimus G Pro

    Back to the OP's oringinal question - The only way to do a full backup of your system is to root (take admin control of the device) and the back it up. If you are interested, do a search for "root" and there are tons of threads about it.

    But please before jumping in to it you read and read again to fully understand what you are doing.

    Is it supposed to be a picture of the Android robot holding a swipe data sign?
    Then I press down to *skip* the data wiping correct? I didn't see any indication to confirm the hard reset was executed.

    Am I voiding my warranty by gaining root access to Linux?
    Sorry if this may be a repetitive question. I'm fairly new to rooting Androids and what not.

    You did it correctly. If the TF rebooted after you hit the skip (vol -) then it was successful.

    Technically, yes. However, it is also possible to unroot if you have a warranty issue an it is not possible to tell if the device was rooted. The only risk is if it gets rooted and for some reason the screen breaks or won't boot and you have to send it back and ASUS figures out that it was rooted during the repair process. Also, there is very little risk to brick your device while rooting. If it has a problem during the process, there are methods for unbricking. I have not tried any of them as I have not attempted to root, but there are plenty of users on here who have rooted and can help out. Also, you can check out the xda-developers.com forums for more rooting help.
