Lately I have noticed a TON of these questions. It seems to me that the process is basically the same for any device —use ADB to pull files, or install a custom recovery and do a Nandroid backup, etc. Would it be better just to have a single question that we can collapse the solutions into?
There are a couple other question types that could benefit from this too, notably "I forgot my device password, halp" which seems to have questions closed as dupes somewhat irregularly and to different questions. I would appreciate suggestions as to which post we should turn into the canonical one (if we do so at all), and any other questions for other topics that should have the same treatment.
