How to backup your device data and install ROMs

1-Using TWRP Recovery (Safest & Easiest Way )
Quote:
1-Download & Install TWRP recovery
2-Boot into recovery mode and Backup your device data (system, data and boot)
3-Download a device's ROM and copy it to the SDCard
4-Boot into recovery mode and Install it using TWRP recovery

4-Back to AndroidTool, click on "Advance Function" tab. (You should see "Found one Loader Device" message )


5- You can backup all partitions by entering the address and the size of the partition.
However, it is not necessary since all devices' firmwares contain all partitions' images.
You have to backup your data (apps and apps' data) and system partitions only before installing other devices' ROM. Thus, you can restore your device's data if you did not like the other ROM.

6-Enter the address of the partition in the field "Start".

7-Enter the size of the partition in the field "Count".

For Example, the recovery partition: Start: 0x00010000 Count: 0x00010000

8-Click ExportImage button

9-Wait for it to finish.

10-In ROM_Dumper_Tool.exe's directory open "Output" folder.

11-Rename the file "ExportImage.img" to the partition name (Example: data_partition.img)

12-Backup other partitions by following the same procedure [Step 6 to Step 11]

13-Turn off your device.

14-Copy all img files to your backup folder

I was curious about it too until I tested their ROM .

The question is which company has the best android developers ?

I listed 7 devices from different companies so far and I guess more to be added. So, we will have the opportunity to try several ROMs and modify them.


@FOV
Please don't include the kernel. Some users might install it in the wrong device. Boyue T62C's kernel does not work in Boyue T62B & many other devices. Unfortunately, You have uploaded the T62C's firmware. You can simply upload system.img only.

The first time you flashed on your device firmware from Onyx, you touchscreen worked? You have what model B or C?

I got my C67ML heavy bricked after first "activities" on it. I've tried to install your system image, but I lost all other android partitions and it did not work.

Hello, this is very cool thank you for putting it together!

I am trying to use this tool to make backup of my afterglow 2 (onyx boox c67ml). The problem I am having is that the AndroidTool v2.1 simply says "No Found any Devices", even though my tablet is connected and in downloader mode.

I have tried to install the drivers packaged here, but it returns "Windows could not find driver software for your device." when I point it to the specified folder.

I have successfully added the registry key that should make this work with Windows 8.1. I am using rkdumper to try to create a backup, and it outputs:

Found: LOADER device (RK3026/RK3028 2207:292c) #2

Found LOADER Rockchip device
Can't open device ""
Critical error

I look in the driver folder from the download here, > Drivers > x64 > Win 8 and in the setup information file I see many entries like this:

"%Rockusb_DeviceDesc%=Rockusb_DDI, USB\VID_2207&PID_292A"

However, my device has PID of 292C not 292A. So, I add a line like this:

"%Rockusb_DeviceDesc%=Rockusb_DDI, USB\VID_2207&PID_292C"

This time, when I run windows driver update and point to the folder with these drivers it says:

"Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it."
"Rockusb Device"
"The hash for the file is not present in the specified catalog file. The file is likely corrupt or the victim of tampering."


Windows caught me! I tampered with it, and it won't let me install. Can you please update this official file on this thread to include 292C so that I can properly install drivers for my Afterglow 2, so that I can make a good backup?

Thank you! xD

Hi!
Drivers for the RK3026 are included in the Rockusb 3.6 package:

Rockusb 3.6

Those are the newest I've found on the net.

Is there a decent place where I can download that RK 2.1 tool? The link above gives me connection error.
