How to backup Kindle Fire with TWRP 2.0? (Video)

Yes, we can make full system backup of Amazon Kindle Fire now. Thanks to TWRP 2.0 Recovery. One of the TWRP 2.0 Recovery features ~ full system backup and restore with Nandroid. First of all, you need to install TWRP 2.0 Recovery on Kindle Fire in order to use this feature. TWRP 2.0 Recovery lets you select partitions (system, data and boot by default) to backup. Personally, I prefer to backup all so I include recovery, cache and .android_secure too. And enable compression for the backup as well. Just follow below step by step video guide to make full system backup of your Kindle Fire.

Step by Step Guide

  1. Power on Kindle Fire.
  2. Press power button until you get orange colour power light.
  3. TWRP 2.0 Recovery will be loaded then.

  5. Check all the partitions that you wish to backup.
  6. Check Enable Compression (Requires more time) if you wish too.
