[Kinde Touch] Backup before Factory Reset

I've been running into problems updating to 5.1 (modified too many random JS files that seem to be in the update) so I've decided to do a Factory Reset and then update.

I would like to save my books, reading positions, highlights, etc. though. Does anyone know how I could backup this data before doing the factory reset?

I think backup of whole "documents" folder will be enough.
In this folder are with book files together files containing information about read pages and whatever.

You should also - for safety - make a backup of the TTS folder. A factory reset won't erase it, but it IS easy to delete accidentally, so it's as well to have a copy of it for the future, just in case.

A factory reset will *not* restore tampered files on the root partition. It only erases all personal documents and information.

You have to manually restore modified files from a backup.
