How to Backup and Restore ROM on Rooted Kindle Fire!

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.

    I think i screwed up my KF for good. I rooted my KF. I was happy with the new look. I then downloaded the aokp_otter_buildM5_0xD34D. I installed it. It got stuck on the teamkang animation boot. I was able to somehow get to the TWRP. I backed up like i everything before the aokp install. I might of formatted EVERYTHING (KF stock ROM). Anyway, the ICS comes up, but now after a reboot, it states “unfortunately, ROM control has stopped”. I press ok. I went back into TWRP and looked into the restore and there is nothing I can restore back to. I connected the KF with the USB to my PC (windows 7) but nothing happens. Also, I cannot get the market app to download on my KF. I’m basically stuck with this new ICS. I would like it to go back to the basic rooted KF and not use the ICS ROM. Don’t know if you could help… : (
