    How to Backup and Restore ROM via ClockWorkMod

    ClockWorkMod is one of the amazing tools available through which you can root your device and work on custom rom. This is a complete pack with custom firmware through which you can boost your device output. Now there are certain powerful backup options available through which you can restore a number of various things in your device back when needed. Backup and Restore is a very crucial process. It allows you to get your data back. But thanks t CWM we have option through we can get back our existing ROM also. That is the stock rom which comes with the phone at the time of purchase. CWM is great enough to give you more advance features through which you can manage app permission, backup/restore app data, and many more things. So in this short tips I am going to show you what you can be done under Backup and Restore in CWM. We will also see some other apps that are good for this process.


    Taking ROM Backup of Samsung Device:

    For sample we are going to take Samsung device under consideration. Because they offer you one of the best way to install custom roms. The best model for testing purpose according to me is Samsung Galaxy Y. A nice portable mobile phone with Gingerbread and through the help of CWM you have ICS interface on it. For backup you can go ahead with using Nandroid. This tool provide you a powerful set of more tools through which you can copy the entire rom. This ROM is locked part of mobile phone. It has all system files associated with Android operating system. It is not visible in the file manager. But through Nandroid you can properly copy it and restore whenever needed. The first thing you have do is provide a root access to the app. That means you will have to root the phone. Without Rooting nothing is going to work. Root access allows super user permission to the app due to which it can modify the system files.

    Backup helps you to restore the phone in original stage back if nothing works well. It is a very important part and not to be ignored. Before installing any custom rom it is more important that you must go ahead with taking the complete rom backup. There are two methods available to take backup. The first is ClockWordMod. And the second is using a very simple app from Google Play called as Rom Manager. This is for novice. If you are confused CWM then you can go head with Rom Manager. It allows you to copy the entire rom on SD card. And also it requires root access. For taking backup however you have to boot the phone in Recovery Mode.

    Restoring the Rom on Samsung Device:

    Once you are done with backup through the same Recovery Mode you can restore the rom back. Here you have to use CWM only. You have to first boot your phone in recovery mode from where you can see a few set of easy options. There is a restore button available. It will ask you for the image file which you had backup before. It is better to keep it stored the external memory card.

    Do not keep it save in the internal memory of phone or else the restore process will fail. It is quiet important that you must run the restoration process when your mobile phone has maximum charging left. If you do that on low battery then your phone might brick. Restoration process does not take much time if the backup taken is proper. If the file is damage or there is some issue with the internal memory then it will fail. So the best way is to keep the device aside when the restoration process is going on.

    You can also try some tools like Titanium Backup Pro. This tool is a bit advance and has a nice user interface mode from where you can backup many things. It is very easy to use and ideal for novice. Those who are not really aware about the advance settings can go ahead with using Titanium Backup Pro software.
