    Default Switching between CM10 and Stock

    OK, so I successfully installed CyanogenMod 10 on my Galaxy S3 using ROM manager. I love it!

    1. Now, is there a way to switch back and forth between my CM10 and the original stock?

    Did you make a backup of your stock ROM?

    I did. I was able to switch back to original stock but not back to CyanongenMod 10.

    Should I technically be able to switch back and forth? Is it a possibility?

    Yea. If you save your backups to your sd card all you'll have to do is reboot to recovery, wipe, then restore whichever backup.

    I think that was part of the problem. None of my backups are on the SD card. I haven't figured out how to save to SD card using ROM Manager. It always defaults to internal memory.

    Don't use ROM Manager. Use CWM or TWRP, its better to get used to using them in case something goes wrong.

    I just loaded CM10 and love it.
    Why would you want to switch back to stock? Just curious.

    Just for sake of argument, say I wanted to maintain a few different ROMs. No idea if I'd even want to as I'm still 100% stock. This is just curiosity. How long does it take to do the wipe / restore procedure? Are most things kept intact (custom settings and saved games, for example), or do they all get reset during the switch process?

    Thanks!

    If you have them backed up to your SD card then you can switch between ROMs in less than 5 minutes. But if you transfer them to your computer it might take about another 5 minutes to transfer all the data to your phone. The more data you have stored, the longer it takes. When you restore, everything is exactly as you left it.

    I usually switch from time to time between different sense based ROMs and vanilla JB ROMs. Always come back to cleanROM though lol.
