Default Nandroid Backup Without Booting Into Recovery

Hello I found this interesting thread where you can make a nandroid backup without booting into recovery! Credit goes all to the developer..

Here is the link to his thread

This means you would have to turn off your phone and reboot in recovery mode, which wastes a whole lot of time rebooting and a lot more time offline. For me, this has been a killer as I do regular nandroid backups. Having to reboot in recovery and finding missed calls, sms from my wife and friends is totally not accepatable for me. So, I set to develop an online nandroid backup tool, namely Online Nandroid, which can do nandroid backups without switching off my phone.

Today, I am releasing it to public, as it may serve good for some others too. Originally I developed Online Nandroid specifically for Xperia devices, but now I am releasing it for all android devices.

This tool, eventhough called "Online Nandroid", does not upload/save backups to any online/cloud services. Online here means that it does backup while phone is live or still running Android.

The short name onandroid is meant to be pronouced as o-nandroid or o'nandroid and NOT on-android.





Requirements:
1. Rooted android phone
2. A terminal emulator installed on phone
3. Latest version of Busybox
4. A working CWM, TWRP or 4EXT based recovery installed
5. Some patience

Installation:
1. Download and copy zip file to SD card
2. Reboot into recovery
3. Choose install zip from SD card, select zip and flash
4. Reboot

Usage:
1. Open terminal emulator
2. Type su to obtain root
3. Type onandroid
4. Wait and watch

To make life a lot easier just go to Google Play and get Online Nandroid Backup * ROOT

The GUI developed by Thomas Otero makes it much more user friendly (and of course he properly credits Ameer for his work). It even checks for updated versions of the script.
