    The pc app connects to the device & app fine, but the 'Desktop password' is in developer settings is in conflict with the app.

    Darn, I can't find anywhere to ask, people think the developer is abandonware.
    If you looks a ClockWorkMod apps, they clearly were meant for a different time.... some of "their" apps haven't been updated in over five years. Other got updated this year, so they are still there in some fashion. But my guess is AllCast Premium is all they are concerned with at this point

    I never bother with it, as Samsung offers a full backup via a desktop app. But based on reviews, it's clear it's a hit and miss solution.

    It would be really helpful if Google included device type and Android version with each review...

    Okay, well I'll try Android forum and email the developer, since there doesn't seem to be another no root offline backup option for app settings at present.

    Thanks!

    See if Samsung's Smart Switch will work? I know it allows you to make backups from other devices, just not sure if it will do a back and a restore with one being a Samsung.

    Thanks! Does it backup App Data? Also, if this is a syncing app, would Syncthing be worth a try for app data too?

    You can't root android berry. I don't know it's a good or bad thing. You also can't backup your system that include your setting/configuration or app setting like in iOS. But you can backup your files manually using third party app from playstore.

    idk. you all say you can't root a droidberry. But did someone actually try that? Maybe it is just very difficult and you have to be smart enough to bypass BlackBerry's security. I just think for these root devs it is not worth the effort because there are not that many BlackBerry users. I don't think it's impossible

    If you go back to around 2015 and to all various threads regarding BBAndroid or PRIV, you’ll see plenty of explanations why rooting attempts fail.

    You're kidding me, right?

    A device comes out claiming to be unrootable, and you don't think the rooting community won't jump all over it trying to root it?

    One of the largest of those communities, XDA Developer, even had a bounty going to root the Priv as soon as it came out.

    No one was able to do it.

    Couldn't do it with the Key devices either.

    If it happened, it would be all over the tech blogs.

    It's been almost 5 years now since the release of the Priv... still without success.

    The next question is what you're going to do with it after unlocking the boatloader.

    The answer is nothing.

    Install Windows for ARM on it....

    One can wish.... but yeah chance of someone making a fully functioning and updated version of something (Sailfish, Ubuntu or AOSP...), that would work with the KEY2 hardware? My guess is it would be pretty low.
