[TOOL] Backup TA v9.7 for Windows [20130818]


Backup TA can backup and restore the TA partition of the device. When you create a backup before unlocking for the first time, then you will be able to restore to full factory state (including a locked bootloader). This means all DRM keys intact, Bravia Engine working in Album and last but not least your warranty when needed .

READ: At the bottom of this post is the FAQ. Here you will find answers on the most asked questions. Read them before posting any question in this thread. When you post a question which is already answered in the FAQ, I will ignore you and smile .
Also when you want my support, tell me which device and version of Backup TA you're using and attach the complete output. I can not help you without this and besides it's really not so much to ask in return, now is it? No effort without effort.

This tool only works under Windows. Mac and Linux will not be supported. Using this tool is at your own risk.

FAQ


Q: Is my device supported?
A: Look at the supported devices list above this FAQ. When it is not listed, try to make a backup it will tell you if your device is supported.

Q: Do I need root for this?
A: Yes, you do need root for this to work.

Q: Can I use someone else's backup?
A: No, this will hard-brick your device.

Q: Does it bring back my DRM keys when I already unlocked my device?
A: Not without a backup of the TA before it was ever unlocked.

Q: Can I restore my TA while running a non-stock ROM or kernel?
A: Yes, but it will soft-brick your device and you need Sony PC Companion or Flashtool to fix it by flashing stock firmware. Best is to first return to a complete stock ROM and kernel before restoring the TA.

Q: Will a restore relock the bootloader?
A: Yes, it will relock the bootloader like it was never unlocked.

Q: What is 'restore dry-run'?
A: When you do a dry-run restore it will performs a regular restore with the exception that it will not write anything to your device. This is helpful to test a backup before restoring and very advisable.
