Hi,

i will receive n5 in few days and want to know is there any good practices to start with.

I've read stickies and i don't mean that type of stuff, i mean something like backing up:
- all partitions (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2517503)
- backing other things like /efs (i see it can be done via TWRP : http://www.droidviews.com/how-to-backup-and-restore-efs-data-on-nexus-5/ , but what about other partitions?)
- complete NV backup?

Also should i backup these things after first boot, or that doesn't matter? (for ex. usage of stock rom for few days)

Thanks in advance :)

Not sure what you want to back up on a new device but what I did was put a custom recovery on and then made a nandroid of it while it was new. I also backed up the efs in twrp and stored it off the device. That'll pretty much cover everything

    With the exception of the /efs I don't see any reason to back up anything, especially at first boot.
