I installed CWM from google play store and bought the premium version. Solely for the purpose of makeing NanDroid backups. When it boots into recovery it says error failed to mount /data or something like that. No option at all.

Rooted, but otherwise stock.
Stock Samsung Galaxy S4.
MK2.
Version 4.3.

All I wanna do is make NanDroid backups. The reason I went with CWM is because I started using it back in the day when the HTC Incredible came out and that was my phone.

You cannot install a custom recovery (incl. CWM) on the verizon S4 unless you buy one with MDK or a developer edition.

You can install safestrap though: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2441441

Without booting into recovery you won't be able to use the nandroid backups. So there's no reason to create them then.

Maybe consider backing up specific apps with Titanium Backup? https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...TitaniumBackup
