Default [Q] Nandroid backup question

So if I understand correctly, I have no way of making a full nandroid without first flashing a custom recovery (CWM / TWRP) that would perform the actual backup.

So, actually, my nandroid will not be of full stock firmware, but will backup the root & custom recovery instead of original state.

So, in order to make a full restore I'd still need to do what's listed in nkk71's guide.

There is no other way to back up / restore stock phone rom?

Root can be undone and stock recovery restored after running a nandroid to return to full stock.

you can backup without being rooted and all that will be different is the recovery which can easily be downloaded and flashed after returning to stock nandroid backup.

you should check theirs probably already a stock rom for your phone anyway

Thank you. I have just installed the TWRP and made me a nice nandroid
First TWRP start was scary though, took almost a minute

Now to proceed with a nice ROM
