So you want to try out ICS ROM on your rooted Kindle Fire or any other ROMs?
Well, before you go ahead and install new ROMs or mess with anything else, a good idea is to backup your current rooted stock ROM (stock ROM is the ROM Kindle Fire comes with plus you rooted it). Just in case something goes wrong during installation of another ROM, you can always “restore” your rooted stock ROM which will restore pretty much everything including your apps, settings, and whatnot.
So, if you’ve rooted your Kindle Fire, just make a backup of your ROM!
Step 1. Turn off you Kindle then Power up. Hold down the Power button when you see the fire logo until the LED turns orange like below.
Step 2. Once in TWRP recovery, choose “Backup”.
Step 3. Choose “Backup now”.
Step 4. Your Kindle Fire should be backing up your current ROM. Make sure you have enough space in your Kindle Fire, anything around 500MB will probably be sufficient.
Step 5. When it’s done, you are good to go.
Step 6. Now anytime you want to restore the ROM you’ve backed up, simply choose “Restore”.
Step 7. Next, choose the backup folder you want to restore, they should be timestamped the day you backed up the ROM.
It’s as simple as that. You can also use this backup/restore feature to load a bunch of different ROMs on your rooted Kindle Fire and switch ROMs on the go instantly.Want to stay updated on latest Kindle Fire Root news?
