    Hi, new here. Can anyone here tell me how to make a backup of the system.



    I think I found it under Settings->Personal->Backup and Reset

    You can do the backup with the dropbox app.

    To backup the system you must be rooted. Settings/Personal/Backup and Reset will back up your basic settings and apps.

    First I won't root, tweak maybe. I keep all my electronics as they came out of box. I understand coping my data to Dropbox, but how do you get the system files there?

    As I stated you can not do anything with the System Files without root. Sorry.

    If by 'system files' you mean all of the apps you have loaded on your phone; I have used App Backup & Restore. Works well.
