Helium for Android

Developers are busy rotting devices every now and then and so are we , here at AndroGuru WorkStation . ClockworkMod is back to the rescue once again and presenting Helium , the missing app sync and backup solution for Android which does not require rooting at all. Basically , it can be used to backup , restore and even sync Android applications just for free.

Setup Helium in just 4 easy steps :

1. Install Helium on the Android device
2. Install and run Helium Desktop from the link provided below.
3. Connect the Android device to the computer.
——- Set your USB Connection Mode to “PTP”. ( for Nexus 7, Nexus 10, etc)
4. Helium on the Android device should now be enabled.

There is not a lot to avail from the free version but the premium one offers a lot. I have broken down the features that are offered in the Premium version of Helium below.

  1. No ads
  2. Automatic Backup schedules
  3. Android to Android sync
  4. Cloud backup and restore which includes Dropbox , Box and Google Drive

Since Helium is not available to Motorola devices many ask why and some end up corrupting their Android OS after installation. Motorola phones have a bug that breaks the Android’s backup mechanism so until this bug is permanently fixed by Motorola, Helium will not work on those Android devices. Not to worry as you could download it from the link provided below.

Download ( All other Android Devices ) : Helium by ClockworkMod via Google Play Store
