Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels.

Forum Added for the LG G Flex
Just like the flagship G2, the G Flex is powered by a quad-core 2.26 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The speedy processor is backed by 2 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of internal storage. And providing the juice, you have a non-removable 3500 mAh Lithium Polymer battery.
Then things start to get a little funny. Rather than the G2’s 5.2″ 1080p IPS display, the G Flex features a 6″ curved OLED panel running at 720p resolution. While the G Flex takes a noticeable hit in resolution and PPI (down to 245 from 424), the screen has been shown to survive being flattened out of its original curved shape. And finally, the G Flex also features a unique self-healing back that is able to recuperate from minor scratches.

But since it is a NVIDIA device, it does things beyond the simple streaming and gaming that is expected in this age. The SHIELD can locally run and stream 4K content to a capable TV. It is compatible with existing...
