For those of you who’ve rooted your HTC One, did you make a backup ROM yet?
Backing up a ROM will backup everything on your phone including your settings, apps, app data, kernel, and the whole ROM. It will not backup your personal photos or videos stored in your internal storage but it will backup everything else.
This can be handy later down the road your HTC One malfunctions. For example, if your phone stops booting for some reason (due to bad custom ROMs or apps), you can easily restore your phone to a previous state by restoring your ROM.
If you “still” haven’t made a backup ROM, I highly suggest you to follow this tutorial to make a backup ROM.
Step 1. Make sure “Fast boot” is checked OFF under Settings->Power.
Step 2. Power off your HTC One. Then hold down Volume Down and Power buttons together for about 3 seconds to enter bootloader menu.
Step 3. Choose “RECOVERY” using Volume Down key then hit Power button to enter TWRP recovery.
Step 4. Once inside TWRP recovery, you can easily choose “Backup” or “Restore” to backup or restore ROM, it’s that simple.
Step 5. If you are backing up ROM, make sure “Boot”, “Data”, and “System” are checked and swipe to start backup. Backup process should take about 5-10 minutes or longer depending on how many apps you’ve installed on your phone.
Backups are usually large between 1-5GB depending on how many apps you’ve installed. They are stored in your internal storage under TWRP/BACKUP directory. You can easily save space by moving these files to your computer and move them back to the same location when you need to restore your phone.
Step 6. When restoring ROM, you will find your backups organized by folders. You can name your folders while backing up otherwise they will be stored with the timestamp of the time you backed them up.
This is one of the most crucial yet simple things to do on your HTC One. It’s HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you make at least one backup ROM after rooting your phone. If you have not yet made a backup ROM, please do ASAP!
