Default Newbie S4 TOWELROOTED next steps

Sent from my SGH-M919 using XDA Free mobile app
I just had my S4 rooted w TowelRoot. This is my first rooted Android. I installed titanium pro and have backed up some apps then Uninstalled said bloatware. I have been trying to find out how to do a Nandroid or complete backup so that I can move forward with my learning in safety. If anyone can guide me with the steps to do next I would greatly appreciate it. The videos and info I've seen has not been on point. Thank you

You have to flash a custom recovery first before you can make a nandroid backup.
But notice that this will increase the Knox counter

Your first android with root
this is
nothing more to you because it is S4
everything leads to tripped Knox and void the warranty
the choice is yours

I'm not concerned about the warranty. I thought you're supposed to backup the system before you flash anything. I wasn't in a hurry to flash a new rom or os because I'm a novice on rooting and I wanted to see what apps and freedoms I have in its present condition. But before I attempt to Delete something like ANT I wanted to do a system backup because the warning said ant is tied in to.....

Just chose "backup all user apps + system data. This its a complete backup from all apps and their data. So you can delete system apps you won't use and don't have to worry about the function of your devise, because you still have a backup.
A system backup or nandroid backup is something different and you can only do one if you flashe a custom recovery.
But then Knox counter will increase
