Hi guys

Maybe I'm a moron for not being able to find the answer to this but here goes:

I can see that with ROM Manager my backups are stored in a "safe" location out of reach no matter which file manager I'm using. And then with ROM Manager Premium it's possible to transfer these backup to your PC. But how do I get a backup transferred back to my phone if I need that? I haven't been able to find any information about how to do that.

So before I invest in RM Premium can anyone tell me if this is possible?

"Backups can be pulled using adb or by using ROM Manager Backup Download Sever." To use the sever method go to ROM Manager -> Manage and Restore Backups -> Download Backups It should start a server and show a link you put into your computer browser which will download the backups

Is this any use?

Yes as I understand it that's Phone -> PC. But what about the other way?

I've just reinstalled it to have a look at the options. I've never used it for at least a year.

From what I understand now (I didn't want to flash cwm) when you store them on a PC they're on a .zip format. To restore you just copy it back to your internal storage/sdcard then use the backup/restore option.

Personally I wouldn't buy the premium. I did long ago but it's outdated and rarely updated.

Best option for backing up is Titanium Backup Pro. Constantly updated and responsive devs.

There are loads of free options. You can even use something like obackup to perform online nandroid backups or just even use recovery and perform a nandroid.
