Thanks in advance!
I understand what you are looking for, but there is not a way to do that. The backup and restore method would be as close as you could get, but the method to backup leaves the various partitions in .img file formats which the custom recovery (has to be a custom recovery like ClockWorkMod, TWRP, etc) would be able to read, copy, and restore. Does the same thing that you are looking for, just in a different way.
