Backup applications, SMS, contacts, call logs etc

NOTE: If you want to backup messages, call logs, Wi-Fi passwords, installed applications and their data, and restore them after installing CyanogenMod 10.1 on your GT-S7262 Android mobile then kindly follow the instructions below.

  • Install Super Backup & Restore application from Play Store.
  • Backup installed applications along with its data to external memory card.
  • Similarly backup SMS, call logs, contacts etc to external memory card.
  • Now copy this entire data again to a safe place, preferably to a computer. This data can be used if anything goes wrong with the external memory card or if the sdCard does not have enough space.

Backup entire ROM

It is always recommended to backup entire data to a safe place before installing any custom modification. This backed up data can be used to restore mobile to the previous state when something goes wrong with the process or when the modification does not meet our expectations.

NOTE: CWM v6.0.3.7 has issues with restoring backups. Use TWRP v2.6.3.0 to take backups, and also to flash CyanogenMod 10.1 on GT-S7262 Android mobile. Other versions of custom recoveries generates errors while installing CyanogenMod 10.1 on GT-S7262 Android mobile.

I too used TWRP v2.6.3.0 for backup process and also for installing CyanogenMod 10.1. TWRP allows you to restore individual partition(s) if anything goes wrong with that particular partition(s) without having to restore all the partitions.

Backup Steps

  • Boot into TWRP Recovery
  • Backup
  • Select ALL partitions
  • Select Skip MD5 generation during backup
  • Swipe to Back Up
