How To Backup Stock ROMs (Firmwares) Before Flashing

It is always advisable to backup a device STOCK ROM/FIRMWARE that you are about to flash, and it is always wise to flash the preloader.bin file found inside a ROM folder except you are really sure that the preloader.bin is exactly the one for that device. Since we are humans we are bound to always make mistake.

On this post i will show you on how to backup any device STOCK ROM/FIRMWARE before flashing.

AIM
The aim of backing-up a STOCK ROM/FIRMWARE is to reduce the risk of DEAD MODE (or BOOT STOCK) to Mobile devices
This simply means that not all STOCK ROMs used in flashing a particular device will work out normal after being flashed 
because flashing a wrong preloader, will make the device completely dead
(can't power on, can't charge and will not be detected by a computer)

ALTERNATIVE
Once a device is not backed up before being flashed, and that device ends up to DEAD MODE the only alternative to bring back the device to normal is TEST POINT METHOD.

  1. The tutorial on "BACKING UP MTK ANDROID DEVICES" easily guided me backing up my LAVA iris 820 device, a MTK6580 phone.

    Especially, it can backup "nvram.bin" partition, which contains IMEI details.
