How to Make a Nandroid Backup on Android

In this post, we’ll see how to make a Nandroid backup on Android. Also, we’ll see how to restore it.

In this instance, I’m using TWRP. Let’s get started.

Make a Nandroid Backup

Steps

  1. Boot your Android device into recovery mode. Provide the pattern if asked.
  2. Now, tap “Backup.”
  3. Make sure that the System, Data, and Boot are selected.
  4. Tap “Select Storage” button. Select the storage you prefer. I suggest you to choose the one with the more space since the backup usually needs more space. Tap the “Ok.”
  5. Now, you can see the slider at the bottom. Swipe it to the right.

That’s it. The backup process will begin and took some time. Once it is complete, tap the “Reboot System.”

If you see the TWRP app installation screen: Tap “Do Not Install” button if you don’t want the installation of the app. Otherwise, swipe the slider to the right.

Please note that you can find the backup within the TWRP folder in the storage you chose for the backup.

Restore Nandroid Backup

Boot your device into recovery mode. Provide the pattern if asked.

Hit “Restore.” Now, you can see the backups.

Note: If you didn’t see any backups or the ones you prefer, then you need to make sure that the preferred storage is selected. To do that, tap “Select Storage.” If the selected storage is not the preferred one, then choose the one you prefer and then tap the “Ok.” Now, you can see the backups.

Tap the one you prefer to restore. Make sure that the System, Data, and Boot are selected.

Now, you can see the slider at the bottom. Swipe it to the right.

That’s it. The restoration process will begin and once it is done, tap “Reboot System.”

If you see the TWRP app installation screen: Tap “Do Not Install” if you don’t want to install the app. Otherwise, swipe the slider to the right.
