iTunes is a powerful tool to backup your iDevice, but it doesn't let you choose what you want to backup and restore ! This is where BackupAZ 3 comes in !
BackupAZ 3 is an awesome backup tool for your iDevice that let you backup important things such as jailbreak packages and sources, photos / videos, SMS / iMessages, etc... and the best part is that it doesn't need a computer ! All is done directly on your device. I hear you, you say "But what if we restore our device, the backups will be erased !!!", but another great thing about this application is that it support cloud sharing so that you can upload your backups on the cloud and recover them when you want !
Here is the description of the application :
BackupAZ come back with a new version that include more features, refreshed look and off course a stability at his best ;)
Why to use iTunes to backup your device when you have BackupAZ3 in your pocket ? This application can save all these data (at the moment):
- Installed Cydia / Sileo / Zebra / Installer Packages
- Deb of your installed tweaks !
- Cydia sources
- Sileo sources
- Zebra sources
- Installer preferejces
- Tweaks and Apple Applications preferences
- Calendar events
- Call History
- Address book
- Health data
- iBooks library
- Messages and iMessages
- Photos and Videos
- Safari Bookmarks
- SpringBoard settings
- Voice memos
- And restore them !
The action related to the All in One button Preference can be long, depending on the size taken by the backup(s) !
BackupAZ3 store backups data under iTunes Safeguard location, but by security, I would advise you to backup these data on your PC (they are in /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/BackupAZ3). If you want to restore your backups after you've copied them onto your PC, replace BackupAZ3 folder under same path, this is very important !
You can also upload your backups to Dropbox and Box directly from the app ! And that’s not all, you can also retrieve them directly from the app ;).
NOTE: Some apps require a reboot (Phone app for Voicemails and Call history, for example). For this, simply use the button in the alert after a restoration. You can also use the reboot button in the « Options » pages.
BackupAZ3 also allow you to preview the files that will be saved / restored for a better comprehension of what will be done !
If you have any issue, please email me, I will try to reply to you as soon as possible !
