If you want to install a new, custom ROM on your newly rooted Droid Razr, I HIGHLY ADVISE you to make at least one backup of your rooted stock ROM. This backups up everything including your ROM/Kernel, apps, and settings.
If somewhere down the line you mess up and brick your phone, having this backup will save the day instead of hunting down unbricking methods (which I will have also on this site later down the line but please don’t count on that).
By learning to backup/restore ROM, it can also give you benefits of backing up different ROMs and you can switch between ROMs easily (within minutes). I usually load up 4-5 different ROMs for my overseas friends who come visit me so they can switch ROMs in Recovery if something goes wrong with the ROM they are using (instead of taking a plane ride to visit me).
Anyways, here’s how to backup/restore ROMs on your rooted Droid Razr:
Step 1. I assume you’ve installed SafeStrap, if you didn’t go install SafeStrap first.
Next, turn off your phone and reboot. You should come to the SafeStrap menu where you should press the Menu button to enter Recovery.
Step 2. Make sure “Safe System” is DISABLED.
Step 3. Choose “backup and restore”.
Step 4. Choose “Backup”.
Step 5. Choose “Internal SD card” or “External SD card”, you can backup to your internal storage or SD card, choice is yours.
Step 6. Choose “Yes”. (or No if you don’t want to include webtop)
Step 7. Once backup is complete, you are good to go.
Step 8. Anytime you want to restore, simply get back into Recovery->backup and restore then choose “Restore”. Backups are saved in folders with timestamp and you can rename them using File Explorer app if you want to make it more memorable.If you like video, please sign up for AndroidRoot.org and subscribe to my Channel!
