If you use latest bootloader, use rescue menu to unlock bootloader, you can use dd to make backups your partitions that you can always recover. In that case you only have to remember not to ever use factory reset (or downgrade to old bootloader). If you follow those rules you can always recover.

PS. And if you ever need to do factory reset, then use the UI to upgrade to latest release and not use ssu trickery. PPS. for really advanced stuff would be to make btrfs snapshot of your working env, and then delete factory snapshots and rename your working snapshot to be factory snapshot. That way if you ever need to do factory reset it would go back to your working env and not to 1.0.0.5.
