[APP] Helium by Clockworkmod

18 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

I just found this new backup app called Carbon Helium, and it looks pretty good.

Play Store Link:

Since it's by Clockworkmod, it must be a reliable app too :P

EDIT:

The app name was recently changed from Carbon to Helium due to trademark issues.

Really useful app if, like me, you wipe and reflash your device on a regular basis!

Great app. I've been looking for a new backup tool as TB can cause issues at times. I've had a quick blast with this and it seems a viable alternative.

Cheers for posting it, I think I'll chuck a couple of quid at the pro version.

One thing I've found... It seems to crash out with an unspecified error whenever it tries to back up my Dropbox app to Google Drive. Other than that it's fine - if I exclude Dropbox the backup completes successfully.

The data will stay for most apps.

Is there a way to point it to the external sd? I tried backing up to sd yesterday and it bogged down, and then I got an error. Later discovered that it had filled the internal sd and that's what caused the problem.

I just deleted everything from my external SD card, except pictures, music and of course the Carbon folder. Then freshly installed 4.2.2 JB and within about fifteen minutes I was back up and running with all of the main apps I use. The only thing though is that it installs to the internal sd so you have to move the apps back to your preferred location.

I'd like to know this too. I don't have that many apps installed but I would like to avoid manually moving all my apps back to the external sd card. One solution for you though would be to restore half of your apps, then move them to external sd card, before installing the rest.

Guys, if you want it to backup to the external storage, you need to select USB STORAGE not external SD card, like this:

..When you restore, can you choose "External SD card"? .. or will it still default to the internal sd card?

It will still default to the internal SD card. You must press USB storage every time, the USB storage is actually your SD card.

Despite description that all android users can access and root not needed, Google Play states that Helium not compatible with Vodafone Huawei U8815. Presently, still using Vodafone locked Sim - would this really make a difference? Can't obtain official Huawei bootloader unlock code - USSD code won't run - I suspect that this IS a Vodafone issue and will need to wait until I swap to another Sim.

Suggestions for a workaround greatly appreciated. I'm still on GB 2.3.6 - B895 - want Helium and Bootloader unlock to upgrade.

It doesn't matter that it's Vodafone, the reason it won't install is that it doesn't work on Gingerbread, it needs ICS or Jellybean.
