    Hey guys,

    The screen on my Droid X just stopped working. Everything else is functional, including the digitizer. I've got a replacement phone on the way, but I would like to do a clockwork backup so I don't lose all of my info.

    Since my phone automatically boots into clockwork by default, all I need is the keystrokes to initiate a full backup. If someone could go through the steps and write down each key-press for me I'd be eternally grateful!

    Thanks in advance,
    Adam

    With the current CWM (5.0.2.5) on my Droid Bionic:

    1. Down button 5 times
    2. Enter Twice
    3. Wait (backup took 2.5 minutes on my Bionic)
    4. Enter button once (reboot)

    Good luck.

    Perfect! That's exactly what I needed, and it worked. I verified that it by connecting it to my PC and checking for a new file in the Clockwork directory.

    Thanks, again!
