Worked on non rooted phone More troublesome to setup and install but mostly work. Good alternative if you don't have root access. Otherwise titanium backup maybe better.

Restoring data after also swapping PC'S made restoring a bit less intuitive but it worked perfectly. All I had to do was copy the contents of the carbon folder on my pc to the carbon folder on my device. Started helium on the device and restore from internal storage and it did its thing!

Backup failed! This app used all of my 4G data allowance to do a full backup of 38 apps data, only to tell me that 28 of them failed. 4GB of data completely wasted as only 10 apps data backed up correctly. Absolute crap!
