  1. This article doesn't tell the whole truth.
    A nandroid backup is NOT a full backup of the state of the phone.
    1. If one looses the IMEI of the phone (I had the misfortune on my Honor 4x) a nandroid backup is worth nothing. The phone is quasi bricked (no telephony anymore)
    2. If the partitioning changes (The update from Lollipop to Marshmallow did this on my Honor) you can restore the nandroid backup, but the old system will not run correctly.

    A nandroid backup is a backup of the contents of the different partitions. It's NOT a 1:1 copy of the internal storage (like e.g. Linux dd creates)

    I'm referring to TWRP but think, the other two work similar.

    P.S. A link to TWRP would have been nice in this article.

  2. The title of this article "How To Create Nandroid Backup" is promising...
    ... but it leaves a huge gap in the middle of the procedure.
    After explaining what nandroid backup is, it jumps right to "boot your device into TWRP/CWM/Philz recovery mode. It gives NO help whatsoever how to install TWRP/CWM/Philz. That renders the article next to useless.

    1. You're right. Basically this article explains that the button labeled with "backup" makes a backup.
