[International] Test ROM backup without overwriting original ROM

    I have a 1st generation 8GB Moto G from Koodo Mobile. I am in the final stretch of reading to back up the original OS in preparation to install CyanogenMod. I will do the backup by running CWM (not flashed to phone). I prefer such backup over downloading the stock ROM for the vendor.

    Before I request the unlock key and void my warranty, I would like to at least have a clear idea of how I would verify the backup after have made it. What is the best way to do this? I would like to see that it has captured everything and I can boot to Android from it, but I want to test this without overwriting the original ROM on the phone.

    Also, do I have to get the download key to even perform the fastboot backup? I will not be writing CWM to the phone in for this step:
