    Default got a question about flashing a new rom...

    So I have been rooted before, but always went with stock rom. I currently am running rooted stock kit kat, and installed twrp today. I'm thinking of trying cloudy 1.2 , and did a full backup of stock beforehand. My question is this, if I run cloudy and don't like it, if I restored my backup, will it put my phone back in the previous state it was in, with all my apps saved?

    If you made a backup in TWRP today, the backup would restore everything you had. Settings, apps, data, all would be there.

    I would highly recommend getting an OTG USB cable and a thumb drive, you can backup and flash ROMs from the USB stick via TWRP... it is nice in case you accidentally wipe your phone since many ROMs recommend doing a factory reset. It isn't necessary, but it can be very handy. The USB OTG cable can be had for under $5 shipped from Amazon or eBay.

    And Golfdriver97 is correct, when doing a backup in TWRP, the entire phone, less the bootstrap and recovery, are backed up in a format called "nandroid"... a restore can be done bringing the phone back to the exact state it was in prior to the backup.
    Current Personal Phone: Google Nexus 4 on Cricket/Aio (Purity ROM with hells-Core Kernel)
    Current Work Phone: LG G2 VS980 on VZW (AICP 6.0 ROM)
    Current Tablet: iPad 4/Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
    Other phones "in the family": HTC One (M7), Moto G GPE, LG G2
    Previous/Retired Android Devices: HTC Aria/Incredible 2/Rezound/DNA, Samsung Stratosphere, SGS2 Skyrocket, Nextbook 8P
