backing up android before installing librelec

  • Hi

    Gonna order a new android box for libreelec usage, and retire my old s905 to the bedroom.

    Before I install librelec is it possible to 'backup' android so I can revert to it if I ever wanted to?



  • Yes, you can backup the whole Android internals, ie all partitions and data on them.

    For that you need a small SD card with TWRP (V.3.1.1) recovery image on it and a USB disk/flash with about 5Gb free space attached to the box.

    Then you "force boot" (via reset switch) to the TWRP recovery where you have the option to backup (and recover/reflash when needed) complete Android system.
