many of these apps already exist, some examples:
full (image) backup as you described it - like norton ghost, so to speak - get an app called 4EXT from the Android Market - it's $2 and absolutely fabulous!
screenshot - an app called Screenshot It - perfect!
Yes, both of these example apps require ROOT - as most of the great apps do!
People: root your phones and quit pussyfooting around, having a non-rooted phone is like having a Windows computer that you only have a guest account on, rather than full administrator privileges - Go to the XDA website, like over 40 million XDA visitors before you and read up! - Learn what you are doing and then DO IT (or at least have your geeky friend do it for you and pay him well!) - Start controlling your phone rather than being a slave to its silly stock limitations and rules!
I promise you will thank me, once you MAN UP and get this done and begin to enjoy all of these apps that you are just WISHING for on this list!
