Question How the h3ck do I back my newly rooted s5?

Greetings, All.
OK was real comfortable rooting my EVO-4G, and tweaking every aspect of it. ROM installs...
But That was quite some time ago, and a completely different brand of phone than my new
[Sprint] Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900P). So I find myself a bit lost. What I'd like to do, is
make myself a backup. Before doing anything to it. You wouldn't mess with your phone
before making a backup, would you?
So I figure CWM is probably the best route to travel for this, yes? If so, what's the process?
I download ClockWorkMod, and what?

NOTE: I do not have/use Windows. So anything Windows related will not be an option.

Thank you for all your time, and consideration.

First, please edit the curse word out of the title. Curse words with symbols/letters are still curse words .

Second, since you're not on Windows, your only option is to root in Linux using heimdall(Google has tons on this). You can flash custom recovery through there. By the way, you technically don't need root to do a backup . Good luck!

OK. I'll look around. I was hoping XDA would have the answer, rather than Google. But I'll ask Goog instead, I guess.

Thanks.

That was my thought too. But, hey, I don't want to offend anyone.

I'm sorry, I meant use Google to narrow down the search XDA. Sometimes it's easier to search and put "xda" at the end in Google and find the forums you want. XDA has a good search function too, but Google is faster sometimes.

Thanks for the clarification.

Indicates you're using the same device (SM-G900P) I'm looking to back-up, and customize. Surely
you backed yours up before modifying it. If you don't mind my asking; how did you do it, and what are
you now running?

Thanks, for all your time, and consideration.

I use Philz recovery exclusively for my flashing, backup, rooting, everything. You're not using Odin(I recommend borrowing a buddy's laptop with Windows for 5 min, it's much easier than Heindall), so you'll have to research how to flash the tar through Linux, but it can be done. Here's the recovery tar. Be sure to thank @Phil3759 while you're over there. The man is a genius at building these recoveries. Good luck!
