Backup and Other Important Tips

Done with the USB drivers? Perfect. The tutorial is on the next page, but first, please take a look at the following tips and important points you need to take care of. These are important, as we don’t want anyone losing their personal data or apps:

Always backup your important data that you might need after you install a new custom ROM, an official software update or anything else. Make a backup for just in case, you never know when anything might go wrong. See below for some tips on how to backup data:

  • Backup your Apps. How? –> How to Backup Android Apps.
  • Backup your SMS messages. How? –> How to Backup/Restore SMS Messages.
  • Backup Contacts, Gmail and Google Data. How? –> Sync with Google Sync.
  • Backup Call History. How? –> How to Backup Call History.
  • Backup WhatsApp Messages. How? –> How to Backup/Restore WhatsApp Messages.
  • Backup APN Settings: GPRS, 3G, MMS Settings. How? Note down everything from: Settings > Wireless & Networks (More…) > Mobile networks > Access Point Names.

Samsung users can also back up data using Samsung KIES. If you backup datamanually, you get more options what to choose from and it is very easy to move data across Android devices from different manufacturers, i.e moving Samsung Galaxy Note backup data to HTC One X.

If you already have a custom recovery (ClockworkMod, TWRP etc.) installed on your tablet, we strongly recommend you to also backup using that as it creates a complete image of your existing tablet set up.

A few more optional tips that you should remember:

1. Having problems connecting your Android tablet to the computer? You need to enable USB debugging mode. See here: How to Enable USB Debugging — for Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean.

2. Make sure your Android device is charged up to 80-85% battery level. This might help you: How to Check Battery Percentage. Why? Because, if your tablet goes off suddenly while installing a custom ROM, flashing an official firmwareupdate or installing mods etc. — your tablet might get bricked or go dead permanently. No one wants that, right?

4. Most of the tutorials and how-to guides on Team Android are for factory unlocked Android phones and tablets. We recommend NOT to try our guides if your tablet is locked to a carrier, unless we have specified the carrier name or device model.

Google releases smarter, simpler Android 4.4 KitKat


Currently, the Android KitKat is available for only the newly announced LG Nexus 5 but it will be released for other Nexus devices pretty soon.


Google has formally launched the Android 4.4 KitKat with the launch of Nexus 5 smartphone. It is said to be simpler and smarter version of all Android versions released till date.
Android KitKat brings a much simpler voice search; when on your home screen* or in Google Now, just say “Ok Google” to launch voice search, send a text, get directions or even play a song.
While reading e-books, watching movies or while playing games, everything else apart from the content will be hidden. You though can bring back the status bar and navigation buttons by swiping the edge of the touchscreen.
Besides, the Android KitKat introduces HDR+ mode that snaps a rapid burst of photos and combines them to give you the best possible single shot.


Press shots of Moto X and refreshed Nexus 7 leaked


Serial leaker @evleaks has been at it again. On Saturday, press shots of the much-hyped Moto X had been leaked. However, nothing new whatsoever has been revealed in the images. Still, it should help to actually be able to see the closest thing we’ll get to an official picture of the smartphone till the official unveiling. The smartphone is set to be officially unveiled atMotorola’s August 1 event.

The leaker has also leaked out what seem to be press shots of the much-anticipated refresh to the Nexus 7 tablet. One of the biggest new things revealed in the pictures is the presence of a new camera on the back of the tablet. @evleaks has also suggested that 16GB and 32GB variants of the tablet will be available on launch.

The tablet seems to be quite close to being announced. The company had recently sent out invites to an event set to take place on July 24. While not much details about the event are available, it is rumoured that the company will be unveiling the refreshed Nexus 7 along with an update to Android, bringing it up to version 4.3. The event is set to be led by Android and Chrome OS chief Sundar Pichai.


The last we heard about Android 4.3, the firmware had been leaked for the Google Play Edition and the LTE-enabled Snapdragon version of the Galaxy S4. A number of fascinating things have been revealed through this leak, such as changes to the notification-based APIs, where apps will be able to access notifications properly instead of using exploits in Android’s Accessibility APIs.

Other features expected to be in Android 4.3 are mostly under-the -hood things, other than the new camera interface. The update will bring about improved performance from Android devices. It will be making it so that the GPU calls are reduced by around 30 percent, significantly improving the battery life. Wi-Fi will also be on by default, and switching it off will require hunting the option down in the menus somewhere.

No, Nexus 4 users, Google hasn’t forgotten about you. About a day after Google started

No, Nexus 4 users, Google hasn’t forgotten about you. About a day after Google started pushing Android 4.2.2 to most Nexus devices, the company’s latest and greatest smartphone is also getting the patch over the air. When it shows, there will be a pair of small additional rewards for running the latest hardware — the Nexus 4 now plays a unique sound when wireless charging kicks in, as well as an updated low-battery sound. We wouldn’t upgrade just to get the new tones, but they cap what’s proving to be a more significant update than the version number would suggest.

Update: As Brian Klug over at AnandTech notes, Google both giveth and taketh away — that very, very unofficial LTE access disappears with the update. When 4G only worked in limited areas, and was never going to get official support, we won’t cry too much.


Which Tablet Has the Longest Battery Life?

Which Tablet Has the Longest Battery Life?
Which.co.uk has published two infographics comparing the battery life of 10-inch and 7-inch tablets.

Each time we test a tablet we check the battery life for web browsing over wi-fi, over 3G (if relevant) and for video playback. To keep the tests fair we set the screen brightness to 200 nits (a reasonable daytime brightness level) using a light meter to ensure no tablet has an unfair advantage by using a low default brightness setting. We also test how long the battery takes to fully recharge.

As you can see in the graphics below, Apple wins both categories hands down. The Apple iPad with Retina latest for 811 compared to 590 for the iPad 2 and 532 for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.The iPad mini also topped its category lasting for 783 compared to 591 for the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and 550 for the Nexus 7.
