    OK, so I followed the video and the pdf for installing cwm. It lets me get into recover, but when I press to make a backup, it tells me "Can't mount backup path."

    What does that mean? And where do I go from here?

    I had the same issue. Never could fix it. People kept saying bad sd card. But that would mean that three sd cards went bad the same day, but still work in every other device. And the Centura while booted into stock android too.

    I too want to know this solution.

    Thanks for asking it.

    Glad I'm not the only one. This is the second sd card I've tried as well.  Oh well. I've rooted through poot, without a back up I guess...? (I'm a noob, so I don't know a whole ton about it) but I'm not THAT concerned with a new rom or whatever. And if I mess this phone up, oh well. It was $20 on ebay. lol...

    if the recovery says viper recovery or the new one centura recovery at the top it should back up ...................if not go to settings storage and format sdcard....make a backup first on your pc if theres any thing you want to save................reboot the phone after to recovery and try a backup again........so it would be backup/restore/backup................let me know if it works or not...............you can also try twrp and see if that ill make a backup for you

    i personally prefer twrp...much easier to use...there are currently two versions available for it...both work but 2.7.0 is vip only right now...its better than 2.6.0.3

    Yes, it says viper, I checked that. I tried a few times to make a backup and it wouldn't work; I even rebooted the phone and went back into recovery to try again. I'll format the card and see if that works. But when I do that, I would also need to move my apps back to my phone? Because I already rooted with Poot and moved a lot of apps to sd... Am I right?
