One of the coolest features on CWM Recovery with a rooted Galaxy Note 3 is the fact that you can backup and restore ROMs.

What does backing up/restoring ROMs mean though?

When you make a backup ROM, it will backup your whole OS including your apps, settings, app data, everything except for contents of your internal storage such as personal photos, videos, and other files.

If you end up in a bootloop while installing a new custom ROM OR perhaps you just want to go back to the previous custom ROM/stock ROM you were on, you can easily restore your backup ROM using CWM recovery.

If you are using TWRP Recovery, please see How to Backup/Restore ROM using TWRP on Rooted Galaxy Note 3 instead.

So, let me show you how to do this.

Step 1. Power off your rooted Note 3.  Then hold down Volume Up, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 3 seconds until you see “RECOVERY BOOTING” in blue at top-left of your screen.

Step 2. Once in CWM Recovery, choose “backup and restore”.

Step 3. Choose “backup to /sdcard” if you want to backup to your internal storage OR choose “backup to /external_sd” if you want to backup to your microSD card.

    I have been hearing there is a problem with restoring backups on the Note III. I’ve heard that it causes bootloops after restoring a backup. Can you confirm this? I have the Sprint SM-N900P version.

    I want to un root my device and i have backed up the stock rom (lollipop 5.0) , my question is if i un root the same via Odin than CWM recovery will be deleted or not?, if not, than i will be able to restore the custom rom via CWM, but if CWM recovery is not deleted than it means the device is rooted, really confused please help.

    Those people who have been online for a while know that website
    ideas that make money online really worth paying attention. Small claims
    court cases are much cheaper than superior court cases for
    both the plaintiff (the person doing the suing) and the
    defendant (the person being sued) because the parties are not allowed to have any attorneys represent them and
    other rules that simplify the lawsuit process, making
    the whole thing much cheaper, faster, and easier.
    Well, you may have to consider a lot of things before you even plan to launch
    your website.

    but it does provide a way to spread the cost over time.
