    Question ASUS Nexus 7 - Backup help

    G'day everyone, I have just joined up and thought someone could help me with some of the issues i have.

    I jhve an ASUS Nexus 7 Google Tablet with Android 4.2.1 on it (latest update was last week) : ) and what I would like to do is:
    set up an "image" and deploy this to other tablets of the same model in an education environment.

    It qalready does everything i want, print, save to server etc. however what i would like to do is grab all the settings and apps installed and the way the screen is set out etc and save that to a file and then deploy it to any other ASUS Nexus 7 devices i have.

    sort of like norton ghost imaging for CP based systems or the
    backup andrestore option that Apple offices for its IOS comopatible devices,.

    I have been researching this for a couple of months and the only way to do it is to "root" the device. but that sort of voids the warrantydoesnt it ? and i dont want other staff having to "root" the device. isnt there any simple way of doing this ? like installing some app on a computer and then booting the ASUS tab into a mode and grabbing the image off that to a file and then boting another one in that same mode and deploying the image back overwriting everything on it ?



    OR am i totally confusing it with the way PC's can be imaged and the priocess is far more complicated?

    can some one please get back to me and explain how to root a device and how to create backups etc ?

    I already am awayre of Titanium Backup but would like to know if it actually doeswhat it claims and is it workth me rooting my device ? i love the way it works now i dont want to destroy it or impare its operability...

    hope all this mekes sence

    thanks in advance. : )

    ASUS Nexus 7 - Backup help

    Yes, rooting does technically void the warranty, but on the N7 it is completely reversible.

    Your best option is to root, install GooManager and then select Install RecoveryScript from the menu in the top right. This should install TeamWinRecovery. Then you can do a full system backup from TWRP.

    You can do the same with ClockWorkMod Recovery, but CWM does not back up the kernel so you have to restore the backup and then flash the kernel or the ROM.

    Otherwise just use Titanium, but that is a PITA hitting Install on each app that gets reinstalled.
