Backup and Restore your Android phone with ClockWorkMod Recovery

As we known, many advanced Android users like to customize their own devices, like installing new custom ROMs, flashing updated firmware and upgrading system. Undoubtedly, it is always better to make a backup before all that conduct you make in case whatever and whenever disaster strikes.
Such a backup is also called as Nandroid backup, including the whole system data, your personal information, apps and other individual data saved on your device. Many different ways can be used to backup your current ROM, and ClockworkMod recovery is one of the most favorable methods. It becomes more and more popular among Android users as you can make a backup anytime and anywhere with ease. So, here let's figure it out how to backup and restore your Android phone with ClockworkMod recovery (CMW recovery mode).

Backup your Android System
Step 1: Boot your Android phone into ClockWorkMod recovery mode. Different Android devices have different ways. For Samsung Nexus 4, you should press and hold "Volume up" key and "Power" when powered off.
Step 2: Press "Volume" key up or down to select "Backup and Restore" option, and then tap on "Power" button to confirm.
Step 3: Select "Backup" by pressing "Power" key now. It will start backing up your Android system to SD card automatically.
Step 4: Once completing the backup process, restart your Android phone. The backup file will be saved in a "clockworldmod" folder on your SD card. Check for it and rename it for use later.

Restore your Android Phone
Step 1: Similar to the step one above, boot your device into CWM recovery mode by using "Volume up" and "Power" buttons.
Step 2: Select "Backup and Restore" in the same way.
Step 3: In the submenu, use volume up and down key to choose "Restore" and confirm it by pressing "Power" button.
Step 4: The process will begin at once and finish with a note "Restore complete".
Note: If you want to recover all the personal settings in your apps, you can select "advanced restore" when you come to step3 talked above, and then choose "data.img". But it doesn't works for all Android devices. You may have a try.

Well, this is it. You will not spend more than 3 minutes to complete the whole backup or restore process. It helps you recover everything perfectly without any quality loss. You won't miss it. Also, you can click here for more Android information.
