There are 2 types of ClockworkMod Nandroid backup format ~ original tar format and new dup format. Tar backup format is good to store another copy at other places like PC or cloud storage. On the other hand, dup format is good for incremental backup for saving disk space. Before Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, older version CWM Nandroid backup is stored at user disk space. But latest version is stored at system disk space where you can’t access it from PC anymore. So how to copy CWM Nandroid backup to PC on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean?

ClockworkMod Recovery v1.3 for HTC HD2 is another Chinese New Year Gift to me. Thanks xda-developer, RaiderX303. It is a must installed application for MAGLDR v1.13. ClockworkMod Recovery is now booting from NAND instead of the old SD Card boot method. Download the recovery with the partition layout you require to flash the ROM. Then flash it like standard NAND ROM using DAF and MAGLDR USB Flasher. Finally, select AD Recovery to load into ClockworkMod Recovery.
