How To Nandroid Backup And Restore (for Android)



In this video, I show you how to make a Nandroid Backup (which almost every developer recommends you do before flashing a custom ROM or kernel). I also show you how to restore the Nandroid backup you’ve made if anything goes wrong with your Android phone. And lastly, I show you where the backup file is located so you can transfer it to your computer.

You need to have root permissions to do this, and also have a custom recovery installed like ClockworkMod Recovery. I used ROM Manager to flash the latest version of clockworkmod in this video and used it to boot into recovery mode. The phone I used here was the Samsung Galaxy S3, but this method works for all Android phones.

  6. Disliked. Frankly I'm amazed by the high ratio of likes/dislikes.
    If YouTube allowed multiple dislikes, I'd put a part of them on this.
    You explain just the obvious — to back up select "back up" and to restore select "restore" without talking about the most important things:
    Where did you get and above all, what is, the software you already have installed.
    You say in the description "custom recovery". Is it a custom recovery… tool? Or recovery ROM? Is "recovery" an adjective or noun? etc.
    NTM your link is dead…
