How to backup&restore with FP2

I wonder about the best way to backup&restore the FP2 without an Google account.

According to https://fairphone.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201190847-How-to-backup-and-restore-your-Fairphone the FP1 seemed to have a backup&restore app, but I don’t find such an app pre-installed with FP2.
So: Is there a pre-installed backup solution (other than using a Google account, which I don’t want to do)?

And if not, which backup solution should I take?
A lot of people seem to recommend a titanium backup (https://forum.fairphone.com/t/move-apps-and-data-from-fp1-to-fp2-using-titanium-backup/11543). But there we seem to need root access (well second thread today where root access seems to be an issue, which maps to https://forum.fairphone.com/t/fp2-root-or-not-root-how/11495

Yeah I think the best option is to wait for the official how-to-root-instructions from Fairphone and use titanium backup then.
Alternatively you can find many backup apps on f-droid.
Also Amaze seems to be able to backup data, but I haven’t tried yet. Amaze is preinstalled.
