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. : )
