The below steps are applicable only for Samsung phones. So, do not try the below steps of any other smartphones other than Samsung phones. Also, make sure to read the requirements before applying the steps. TWRP does have a touch interface while stock recoveries work without it and are based on volume keys and power buttons.
- You just need to connect your device in MTP mode and copy over all the files that you think are essential.
- Let me show the best way and easiest way to backup all your contacts in a single click.
- Similarly, if you store your contacts in the cloud, there is usually no need to back them up again.
- The SP Flash Tools support all the MediaTek Smartphones and Tablets running on the stock firmware Android OS.
If your device is not rooted, you can follow the guide to root your device using Magisk. Magisk is a popular method for rooting Android devices, and it allows you to retain your device’s warranty while still gaining root access. Now if you want to flash Custom ROM or any flashable zip files then you must have a custom recovery installed on your phone. The reason why we use TWRP over other custom recoveries is the simplicity and the availability of the image file. Extracting the Boot.img file is time-consuming and requires some effort.
Fastboot backups aren’t designed to be restored through FlashFire, so are less useful and convenient for most users. The backup is in the form of a ZIP file with a flash-all script included inside. You need to copy the backup to your desktop computer and restore it via the Fastboot app. If you don’t know how to do this, read our primer on Fastboot to get up to speed. So TWRP is a custom recovery that you need to flash on to your stock recovery to get the most out of your phone. There are more custom recoveries like CWM but they don’t work as well.
It’s also worth keeping the software updated as new features. The app tends to get more user friendly with each new generation. This option enables you to mount specific partitions so that you can access them via ADB through a desktop. Don’t tick the Skip MD5 generation option, as this ensures the integrity of your backups and guards against errors when restoring them. In TWRP the default option is a factory reset, which wipes the entire device. Don’t forget that you should always make a full Nandroid backup before you flash anything, no matter how innocuous it is.
