Installing cwm without pc can be tricky, if you're lucky you can install cwm via rom manager or flash the cwm image via a flashing tool....
Hope this helps:D

how to boot in boot loader and how to take a backup of the installed rom?

Boot loader : root your phone, turn it off, then press the power button +menu button + volume up button simultaneously

Backing up : just back up through the boot loader, or backup through third party apps

Sorry for the late respond:)

I have new galaxy chat with ICS, I will install cwm recovery, create backup of stock (slovak) rom improve rom to some 4.1.2 spain rom and if it won't be good or have some hardware problem I will install again my stock rom but what with cwm recovery. Will it work this way?
Return To Stock Recovery

1. Download StockRecovery.zip
2. Place StockRecovery.zip on your SD Card
3. Boot into CWM Recovery
4. Tap on Install
5. Find StockRecovery.zip file on your SD card.
6. Slide to Flash
7. Reboot System & Enjoy Stock Recovery Again!

Cwm twrp etc any for galaxy a5 (sm-a500g ) Rom backup and restore

dear all,
I brought samsung galaxy a5 (sm-a500g ) on 12th January 2015, but since then no custom recovery for it.

I rooted using Odin -auto root successfully.

ready for another firmware update from Samsung, but wish to backup this stock rom for future, incase update don't work. hence cwm or twrp or even Philz recovery will do the purpose, but none is available for this master piece sm-a500g from Samsung.

kindly help anyone

Just install CWM....it won't affect your rom....in CWM choose backup in backup and restore option....it will create the backup of your current rom on sd card

so basically if Install CWM and do some ROM backup after I did some rooting, will that means the ROM that I am backing up IS NOT the original ROM anymore? a.k.a. if I have some hardware problem in the future and restore the device to the ROM that I thought is my original ROM (but I did the backup after I did my rooting) then dealer will detect my ROM is not actually original ROM and will void my warranty????

Sorry to bring back from the dead, but I assume if I am still wanting to read this than others are too.

I would assume that the CWM is just an app on your phone that is capable of reading and outputting the ROM that is already on your phone. I DON'T think that the CWM is actually modifying your OS other than to be able to gain access to the deeper level files. I could be wrong, and if I am someone PLEASE correct me and cite my words so other know this is wrong. I think the dealer would only know if CWM was currently running on the device. I think if you did a restore based off of that rom, you would be g2g dealer wise.

i had that same problem .. and i found a way to backup bootloader and recovery partitions, and i applied it to all partitions and it worked

http://www.theandroidhow.com/2014/05...-recovery.html

i had a trouble using flashtool, till i realized the flashtool version itself wasnt good
so i recommend
SP Flash Tool v3.1328.0.183: https://doc-14-c4-docs.googleusercon...WpSZHRmTHJLa0k

you will also need

mtkdroid : http://www.mediafire.com/download/w5...ool_v2.5.3.rar

the method in the 1st link is illustrated for bootloader and recovery partition, i used it to backup all partition includidng system(android partition) and other partition i have no idea what are they, i just dont like to lose a useless digit

NOTICE: i didnt try it in restoring , but i think it works like bakcup/restore process of pc HDD

    Hi there,

    I am new to xda and new to Android hacking.

    What I wanna ask is, (I guess it's of most newbies concern as well), can we have a 100% backup of our system (stock ROM)? Obviously, it is important because:

    1. If we perform an official (OTA) update to a new Android version. And we don't like it. It is possible to get back to the old original one which we are used to. (not everybody likes new things, and/or not every new thing is good)
    2. If our phones are having some problems. And we have to give it back to the company for a fix. In most cases they will flash a new ROM for us. If we wanna keep using the old one (explained in #1), we have to keep a copy of it by ourselves.
    3. If we want to try new custom ROMs, we may want to switch it back after trying.
    4. Whenever we do any modifications, it's always better to keep a backup/roll-back point. In case anything goes wrong, we have a safeguard.
    5. For the official warranty issue.
    Yup I do see there are some official stock ROMs downloads for some particular phones. But those are not really a backup of our original ROMs. And it's always hard to verify if those downloads are the original official releases. And, if those downloads are 100% stock ROMs, this means some guys out there could make it, so what is the way to do so?

    Or, how those mobile phone companies do it in their labs?

    I have been doing researches on this topic for a few days. Some posts claim that their methods are "backup stock ROM" or "backup before rooting". But after digging into it, they requires rooting and/or flashing CWM. Here comes a few questions:

    Questions
    1. Rooting will in fact changes some files/data of the system. So backup after root is NOT getting the original stock ROM. Is it?
    2. Is there a method to "un-root", so ALL the changes are TOTALLY reverted?
    3. Installing/flashing things like CWM in phone requires rooting, which would make the ROM not original. Is there a way to extract the system backup from a computer externally?


    In addition, I have found some related pieces. which could be useful to anyone viewing this post, and might be useful for you to solve this (my) question. :fingers-crossed:

    * as I'm a new user, I can't post links directly. Please delete the blank spaces in between.
    1. ht tp://www .modaco .com/topic/351269-backup-original-rom/
      In reply #5, user C3C0 raised a method of backing up the original stock ROM without root. But it seems he is flashing CWM and that method is only for ZTE Skate.
    2. adb backup tool of Android SDK
      At the first sight i came across this approach, I thought it is the official method to do whole system (ROM) backup (WOW - how nice!). But after studying for a few more posts, I think adb backup can only backup app+app_data, and possibly some system settings only. Am I correct? And also, adb backup is only for ICS (Android 4.0), isn't it?
      adb backup usage: ht tp://forum.xda-developers .com/showthread.php?t=1420351
      (But mentioned in the bottom of #1 the poster is having some issues on using adb backup. Perhaps there are some bugs and not reliable(?)

      One more question on adb backup: Can it backup just one app+app_data, and restore just one app+app_data, without affecting other things? If yes, we don't need to root and don't need Titanium Backup (which requires root) for backup app+app_data. Isn't it?

    ** In case I have said anything or any terms wrongly in this thread, please DO correct me, for helping me and helping others. :)

    P.S. i am using LG Optimus 3D.

    Thanks a lot, wholeheartedly,

    Download CWM recovery img for your device. Start your phone in bootloader mode and connect to PC. Be sure to drivers installed correctly. Type in command line:

    fastboot reboot <downloaded img>

    Now, the phone will reboot and starting recovery. Make backup, that's all.

    no it won't

    Thanks for your reply R2D2. Would you explain a bit more about the steps? When I flash CWM to my phone, will it change the ROM and that is not a stock ROM anymore? Where should I type the "fastboot reboot <downloaded img>" command?

    Thanks,
    midnite_

    If you flash CWM, you will retain your stock rom unless you try to flash custom rom or updating kernel from CWM recovery or from ROM Manager. if you are using samsung android device, you can check your rom in odin mode :)

    Hit thanks if I helped you!
