@compicat What's the issue you are facing.
@Jaxparrow, basically it all belong to :
dex - /system/data/data/(application folder) -library and application profile, like user and etc...
lib - /system/data/(application folder) - library and application folder installer excutor
data - /android/data/(application folder) - we all know this folder
0bb - /android/obb/(application folder) - we also know this folder
but the apk where registry is, that i dont know, all of the list is all i copy when restoring my previous saves of games, google profile, obb, data, library for game to run

this is how to connect it in app2sd "/dev/block/sdb2/" is a second ext4 partition i made to store as backup disk, in-case the OS is corrupted so i won't have to download again, specially the OBB so big files

Jaxparrow updated App Backup and Restore with a new update entry:

Version 1.5 is here with Major Bux Fixes

Bugs Fixed:-
  • Fixed Screen flickering bug caused by base64 encoding ( reported by @compicat )
  • Permissions will be used as the per app's preferences. ( During Backup & Restore ). This extension will not override the app's file/folder perms.
  • Reduced file size from 17Kb to 5Kb. Not a big size though. But, reduced more than 60% of the file size.
  • Optimized loading

Thanks for your information. I will surely add this options. But, It needs more work with dialog. Which you will select what you want instead of pressing options which makes unable to use combos.

The lib thingy you guys are talking about is not necessary, it's just a symlink from /data/app/xyz/lib. Moreover, I think it's already being backed up in the way you're doing it.

I would like to point out that even if you're to add options for additional stuff to backup then they should be obb & odex only, nothing more. In Apps2SD it's just making it look complicated but its not really a thing, so don't be fooled by it.

You should be able to retrieve odex by running:
Bash:
get_odex_files(){
    tar --zstd -cpf /path/to/store/odex-bakup.tar.zst $(find /data/dalvik-cache -type f -name "*${1}*" | xargs)
}

get_odex_files com.abcd.xyz

It will preserve all file attrs/perms and also directory structures, all you will need to do is to extract the tarball with the following command while restoring:
Bash:
tar --strip-components=2 -xpf /path/to/store/odex-bakup.tar.zst -C /data/dalvik-cache

may your right, some are google play supported apps which game save are uploaded to cloud, but there is one game that i know that will work that kind of method, the "respawnables", that game has no google play support only FB if the game is uninstall all your progress will be deleted too.

well i do copy it manually to ensure the file im backing up is riight.
