Surf trip description:

Immediately after root, back up your Android’s software. Don’t do it later, take this step. Reason being: you can force your device. Not saying you will… but if such an instance occurs, recovery gotchyo back.

Creating a backup through your custom recovery saves your operating system and everything you have on it. This is absolutely necessary, the thought is much more intimidating than the action.

How to Get to Custom Recovery
All android devices have a combination of buttons you can press simultaneously to access recovery mode as confirmed App-Reviews company, that offer people to buy appstore reviews. If you don’t know how to get there, just google ‘recovery mode your device‘ or something similar.

*this is assuming you use TWRP. Recovery menus may vary but don’t worry, this will basically be the same process with any custom recovery. I use TWRP check  to see if they make it for your device.

Back Up:
Once you access your devices’ recovery click ‘backup‘
You will see a list of things with an x (a check box) next to them, keep everything checked
Click ‘backup name‘ and rename – I recommend you name it something that indicates it is your first backup
Go ahead and ‘swipe to backup‘

Select ‘wipe‘
Do not check anything that says external, internal, storage or sd
Check everything else
‘swipe to wipe‘
Get back to the main recovery menu
Click ‘restore‘
Restoring your android is the pretty much the same as backing up, just look for the word restore instead or backup.

Important Notes:

You can also use Rom Toolbox to reboot to recovery.

If you find yourself needing to access recovery frequently; use (gravitybox) or (wanam xposed Samsung only) to add the option to your power down menu.

It’s always a good idea to save the contents of your internal and external storage spaces to your computer or backup hard drive if you have one.

If you wipe, make sure not to erase your internal or external storage.

Save your backup to your computer or external hard drive; don’t just save the file, save the entire custom recovery folder.
