Rooted my Android phone.. how to backup everything before tweaking?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I just rooted my Samsung Exhibit 4G with zerg rush root, so I have Superuser, Terminal Emulator, and Titanium Backup (free edition!) installed.

I've already deleted Slacker radio and Samsung's Media Hub pre-installed by T-mobile.. but before moving on to deleting more safe bloatware, I'd like to make a full backup (like an ISO image, in a sense) of my phone so I could reload everything in case the phone gets bricked/glitchy. I only have a 4 GB SD card so I'd like to store this on my computer or external hard drive.

Thanks!

Yup, nandroid is exactly what you want. Creates a full image of what's on your phone so you can go back to exactly how it was if needs be wink.gif

If you haven't flash Clock Work Recovery mod, I suggest you do so. I make my backups through that (which will make a complete system image) along with backing up all my apps in Titanium Backup, and then I copy the files to my computer to backup even more. After that you can restore stuff andtweak stuff as much as you like.

I use a great App for my Android, it's so simple, no rooting needed, and unlike titanium, it does not backup on SD card, it's all to the Cloud. So that's my preferred choice, all my SMS messages, contacts, call logs, documents, photos, music and videos are safe n sound now.
