Sorry, I recently posted this in the wrong section. Mods feel free to move/ erase as you see fit.

I am needing advice with backing up my Cyanogenmod 11 stuff. How do you guys do your backups, enabling you to flash a newer version etc and not lose your data and setup preferences?

I flashed CM11-0303 (and appropriate kernel), then did un update to 0307 and re-flashed the kernel again. This causes major issues and I had to reflash 0303 again from scratch. I was going to only start updating with official CM updates but apparently you can't install an official release update over a nightly install. Is this true?

Thanks, my phone is an S4 i9500. Hope you guys can help because I now want to reflash a new official release without losing my data and setup preferences

Do you guys backup within the system recovery? Do you backup to your phones internal storage or to the SD card? I am using PhilZ Touch 6.19.2.
