Kies, iTunes, and so on... I believe the OP was looking for a Linux based backup solution. Aren't we at LinuxQuestions ?

what i did for my nexus-5 (iirc):
Quote:
Code:
sudo yum install android-tools
plug in fone to pc:
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Code:
fastboot oem unlock
and then download the latest twrp for my device and do:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery <twrp.img>
fastboot reboot
Code:
adb reboot recovery
then select backup/restore from within the twrp menu.
fyi: every device has a different method to unlock the bootloader (some manufacturers make it impossible).

I thought this is something related to custom recovery and rom flashing. Anyway, you can backup and restore phone with MobileGo. It's quite impressive.

It depends on the phone, carrier and manufacture? Geeksphone off the bat yes iPwn at your own(no pun) risk.

i have used cwm and philz, but now use twrp,
the os choice is disappointing, and like some of you said before, its tricky cause you can bricky

mainly software brick since i saw some guys do some magic, they have special tools, and theres also jtag, but its not something anyone can do/repair, like a pc with linux

every device has a different method to backup phone data by using different apps or software. A good example is this one for android sms backup
twrp is good enough to perform OS backup. For personal staff, i prefer Google Drive

Thanks for you suggestion, to backup data from phone to computer, you can only use professional data backup tool to backup them , or use some data transfer tool to transfer data to computer for backup, the Android data manager and Android phone transfer tool are good at user to transfer data or backup data , i think the first approach is better,
Because i often use it to backup or transfer Android messages to computer ,feel good
