  5. I am able to download the file now…will it save the backup to the sd card if I have music and videos in my sd card?

    • If your device shuts down before the process is complete, the backup will not be successful.

      Make sure you have enough space on your sdcard, if possible use a blank SDcard.

      • I have enough blank space in my sd-card. but after running the command the phone shutdown and the command in the cmd ends.

        after restarting the phone no backup files are there in the sd-card.

        • Hi Biswas, you cannot restore the backup firmware via sdcard. The backup doesn’t have a META-INF directory and relevant files that indicates the specific partition where each IMG file should be flashed or restored to.

          • what will be the command to do this?
            do I have to create .zip file to flash the backup and does it require rooting the device too?

          • fastboot flash filename.IMG

            Example: fastboot flash boot boot.img

            But fastboot packages and driver need to already be installed on your Computer to execute or run such commands.

          • I have a rda8810 device karbonn a108 plus I have backup of the device using above method :

          • We did not forget, we just have a lot of requests to fulfill. The guide for restoring the backup files, or packing to .PAC will be made available as soon as possible.

  6. Is this gonna make a back up of all the current state of the stock rom in my phone? for e.g. will it create some sort of a flashable zip or any file type?

    • Please ensure that your device has root access and is based on spreadtrum cpu. Clean up all files and retry the process.
