So let us now proceed : How to restore Nandroid Backup without CWM:


Your Phone must be rooted. If your Device is not rooted then please root your device from here.

You must know the position where you have saved the Backup in order to browse the correct location of path if asked by Nandroid Manager.

Step 1 : Install Nandroid Manager Application from the link here(Playstore).

Step 2 : Open the app installed and browse for the backup saved from the SD card or Pendrive attached. Most of the times the backup is automatically scanned and found.

This in the the section on how to do it without needing a CWM recovery … but as I just found out, the last stage of this will be to reboot into Recovery. This will fail if CWM recovery isn’t installed on the phone. Post here if this is incorrect, because so far I’ve only been able to extract files, and not been able to do the the full Nandroid recovery.
