Android version 4.1.1
Kernel version 3.4.0
so I want to install custom ROM.
Before installing custom ROM I want to Backup my Stock ROM.
coz if made mistake I will reinstall my stock ROM.
AND WHAT IS Difference between Stock ROM and Official ROM.
AND which ROM i can install in it?
sorry for bad English.
but from what I know you have to be rooted.
To root, use MTK Droid Tools by rua1 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2160490
To backup, find oscarblue's post.
There were a few ways mentioned on how to backup.
1) flash cwm and make nandroid backup
2) make a scatter file in mtk droid tools and use sp flash tool somehow. I suggest you read the thread above.
Hope this helps. Press thanks if I helped you
Deep down in my memory there's an app in playstore that can backup your rom without using root. I cant remember the name sorry.
