Using abe.jar to unpack an Android backup file

Ignore the bit where I flub changing directories across drives!


  • i forgot my phone's password then i backup my files from root (from power and volume key).now it is in my external sd card . os is lolipop . files extension is .backup can i restore my backups.

  • Thanks this was WAY mor helpful then anything else I have read so far! Proabably because I am a NOOB at development, I had such trouble with this until I found your video! I didn't know I was missing the "C:Program FilesJavajre1.8.0_51Java.exe" to the begining lol

  • well. I tried with my file. Just all done without error but i cannot file tar file. I specified the full directory but still it doesn't create tar file. what should i do?
