If you have a rooted Galaxy Note 3, you have a choice between using CWM or TWRP Recovery, both which do pretty much the same thing to backup, restore, and install ROMs.

Well, if you are not using CWM Recovery to backup/restore ROM, and using TWRP Recovery instead, here’s how to do it easily.

First, you will need a rooted Note 3 with TWRP Recovery installed so see How to Root Galaxy Note 3 first.

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

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


Step 2. Once in TWRP Recovery, simply choose “Backup”.


Step 3. To backup ROM, I suggest you to check ON “Boot”, “System”, and “Data” as shown below.  Also, you can set a Backup Name and choose either Internal Storage or your micro-SD card.

When done setting it up, simply swipe “Swipe to Back Up” to starting backing up ROM.


Step 4. When you ever need to restore a ROM, all you have to do is select “Restore” from main menu in TWRP Recovery.

    I have two HTC Ones. One is ATT branded and one is unlocked (booth rooted with TWRP recovery). I was thinking of taking a back up of unlocked version and restoring it on ATT version. The goal here is to remove all the bloatware that ATT version has.
    Thanks in advance.

      It should work, at the worst you can just install an international version of One ROM on your ATT version.

    Hi max. i would like to know if it is possible to flash my n900t to get 3g, H and H+ instead of the 4g/4gLTE. My area does not have 4g and 4gLTE I only bought n900t to get the snapdragon version. Thanks in advance.

    Made a backup on my Note 3 running Lollipop. Then after reboot, I get safestrap:disabled. If I let it go, it goes to stock android recovery. reboot there sends me right back to the safestrap:disabled screen.
    I can enter TWRP, but am unable to boot the phone now. only options are to go to TWRP, or get stuck in the recovery loop.
    Phone totally farked by doing the very thing that was supposed to protect me.
