Can I do it in stock recovery? If not, whats the easiest way? CWM or TRWP? Is there a way to make sure the nandroid is verified before i flash a custom rom???
Interestingly, can i make a backup of my kernel, CSC and modems so that i can flash them on a custom rom??
There is NO way you can backup/restore a nandroid backup without custom recovery.
However there is a way to flash TWRP custom recovery without using your computer.
What you need is "Goomanager" which is a free app that you can download from the playstore.
After its installed you need to open it and click on the left side menu key on the phone and
select "install openrecoveryscript".
Once Goomanager is done, select "reboot recovery" from Goomanagers menu.
After you see the twrp recovery screen select reboot, then you will be ready ready to flash
any cwm/twrp custom roms found here in xda which are fully compatible with your phone.
Before I forget, NEVER backup and flash ANY modems/radio images.
None of the custom roms found here in XDA contain any modem images
because they would either soft brick or hard brick your phone.
You can flash any 100% compatible stock or custom kernels which are designed for your phone's specific model #.
Don't forget that clicking the
"THANKS" button takes less time than typing
Have a great day, enjoy!
Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than it takes to type "thank you"
(unless you type very fast).
