OnePlus 5 Nandroid Backup Process

OnePlus 5 Nandroid Backup Process. A Nandroid backup of a rooted smartphone is the number one process after gaining root access. It is a very important thing to have before installing any custom software on your device. It’s basically a backup of your stock system that you can fall back on if anything goes wrong or if you just want your stock ROM back. You can also use Nandroid Bckup to create a backup of your favorite ROM set up exactly the way you like it. The backup you create can be easily restored using the restore tool in TWRP recovery.
