Ugh! I absolutely loathe making a Nandroid. It simply takes entirely too long. Some even report having missed calls and such. Soon this will be a problem of the past, thanks to an up-and-coming developer over at XDA . Now you can make a Nandroid and save it to the cloud, all while the device is still on and operating!
Keep in mind that this is still a work in progress, so you will most likely encounter some random bugs. And since this is the case, we definitely recommend making a conventional backup as a safety precaution.
There are a few things you need to know
before you decide to make an online backup. Check out the checklist below:
1. Rooted android phone
2. A terminal emulator installed on phone
4. A working CWM based recovery installed
5. Some patience
1. Download and copy zip file to SD card
2. Reboot into recovery
3. Choose install zip from SD card, select zip and flash .
1. Open terminal emulator
2. Type su to obtain root
3. Type onandroid
4. Wait and watch
Imagine where this could be going. Make a quick backup on your smoke break. Have a major bug in a ROM update? Restore a previous backup while in a meeting! This could be a game changer, if
done right. I will definitely be looking for updates to this! If you would like to see it progress, stay glued to your phone, and I’ll let you know! Oh! Go over to the XDA thread for all the required files and some more in-depth instructions.
