    This is awesome sic. I think every Dev should incorporate this in to their roms download list if they have twrp. Don't you think?

    Yes I do. I was spending time this morning trying to figure out how to restore my Nandroid backup made with CWM, before realizing it couldn't be done in TWRP...I hope this helps others.

    But now it's easier for people to find out how to get back to CWM So you can restore your Nandroid backup...if you're like me and went from a CWM Enviroment, flashed a rom and ended up with TWRP where your Nandroid is useless...This will help those that want to get back to their nandroid backup.

    So if you do a backup with twrp you can't restore via cwm and visa versa? Why is that?

    They're saved differently. TWRP saves them as WIN files If I remember right, CWM saves them as .zip files.

    StarScream, correct me if I'm wrong on that.

    It's because they're two totally different Recovery systems. I didn't think about it and tried recovering a nandroid in TWRP and it didn't do anything...I was like WTH...StarScream helped me, as I didn't even know about the Template Installer, but now it'll be easier for everyone. I wonder if this should get stickied or added to the All Things Root...

    TWRP saves backups in win files unlike CWM
    different recoveries have different backup methods
    example-
    i make a backup with CWM and try to restore with AMON RA it will not work different recoveries different save styles
    same goes to all recoveries :)

    I'm not 100% sure about just a stock recovery, but there should be something about returning a phone to complete stock...I'll have to research for you.

    I might be off topic but I currently have TWRP installed, can I also install CWM and have dual recovery? If so, do I just flash the CWM? Step by step instruction would be awesome! :)
