Using existing ones on the market irritated me in one way or another. So we whipped one up real quick and open-sourced it. Check link below for releases and source code
We are in the process of completely re-designing our Live Backup system. It promises to be faster, more reliable and more stable.
We are starting with the standalone app for now and once we have it completed, we will work on adding the new code into TWRP Manager’s Live Backup. With the redesign comes some new features. We are adding the ability to rename and delete the backups as well as the ability to schedule backups.
Yes, that’s right. You will soon be able to schedule Live Backups to run at specific times on specific days with the options you wish.
Once we feel it is ready, we will release it via our beta groups. If you have not already joined, we encourage you to do so. These beta groups give you first access to these exciting new features and you have the ability to help us find the bugs (if there are any) so that we can patch them before the official release.
Be on the lookout for the updates!

A while back a friend and beginning programmer asked me to explain “polymorphism” and why it’s important. It took me a few moments to figure out how to explain the concept and how to apply it. Here is what I came up with:
During a recent project I had the need to parse HTML into a TextView with hyperlinks and images. Images with hyperlinks are also clickable. This code still needs work but it displays HTML without a problem. Tweaks need to be done to properly size images and some threading wouldn’t hurt either.
Layout XML is simply a single textview. Need to add INTERNET permissions also.

This app will perform a nandroid backup while you are still using your phone.
Currently the app supports two recoveries: TWRP and CWM are fully supported for Live Backup.
Live backup in TWRP Manager is incompatible with Busybox on Rails. If you are having issues this will be the first question we ask you. Their implementation of busybox/tar is non-standard.
