If you are one of those who like to flash new ROMs often and play with your device, then there’s a good chance of having multiple Nandroid backups saved in your SD card. Having a Nandroid backup is always a clever thing and it’s sole purpose is restoring your data. A Nandroid backup is actually a backup of your system files + data which is pulled from your device’s NAND memory and further saved yo your internal or external memory. A Nandroid backup can be easily achieved by CWM or TWRP based recoveries.

Now the trouble knocks in when you have to restore that particular app or a text message or simply your call log from the Nandroid backup. The process could be a real pain- You will first have to create a backup of your current ROM, then wipe it, then restore your old Nandroid backup, then backup the needed info or app and then restore to your recent backup. Sounds annoying, right? Also, sometimes the restoration process fails, there could be MD5 mismatch which could be tackled but that’s not a proper way to it. If the backup is corrupted and you restored it then your device might have some booting issues.

A new app which has recently hit Play Store called Nandroid Manager has come to rescue you now. If you are facing with some problems like mentioned above, Nandroid Manager is your shot! It does help you restore your Nandroid backup without booting into recovery. What’s more? It also gives you the ability to restore specific things like your text messages, apps, or even your call logs. It gives you full control over your Nandroid Backup and very specific things could be pulled back from a Nandroid backup with the help of this magical app.

The developer is also working to add feature like exporting the data so it can be restoredd between multiple devices, home screen restoration feature, and the option to convert the backup between TWRP or CWM based recoveries.

This app is available in both free and paid versions. Considering the features it is offering I would say it’s worth dropping a buck for the Pro version.

  1. i’m new to all these tech stuff, installed Nandroid and tried to run back up but it keeps asking for path for CWM ot TWRP path/folder i couldn’t find either of the folder anywhere 🙁 please enlighten me. Thanks very much

  2. Funny that I found this article (and web site) completely by accident and a typo. I’ve been trying to restore my text messages from my Evo 4G LTE that I traded in for the Galaxy S4 and nothing worked (Including Titanium Backup!) but this app seemed to have done the job! I’ll support the developer and buy the pro version off that alone even if I never use the app again but I do see me using this one more. Thank you! 🙂
