Quick tip: How to easily browse your Nandroid backups

If you flash custom ROMs on your Android phone, this quick method of managing your Nandroid backups will be essential

If you have been installing custom ROMS for a while, its likely you will have a few Nandroid backups stored on the Sdcard. While its possible to extract these files on on a desktop , accessing the contents on the actual device is made simple using the Nandroid Browser app.

Install the app as normal , run and it will display all your current backups. Click on one to view the contents, and you will then see each part of the backup eg ‘boot.img’ , ‘system.img’ etc.

Clicking on these allows you to extract and install individual apks , great for saving time. You can even extract any photos or videos which are contained in the recovery and then email or save them to your current ROM.
