Notes : you must have at least 30% charged battery to use nandroid restore (for security reason)
1) Put the tools and the recovery image on the same directory on your computer
2) Boot the phone in fastboot mode
3) Flash your recovery partition (using fastboot) with the recovery image :
4) Reboot in mini recovery mode./fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
5) Using adb, put all the necessary files on your sdcard :
Note : if you update since a beta version, you can also delete the oldest archive system :./adb push RECTOOLS.tar.gz /sdcard/
./adb shell sync
./adb shell rm -rf /sdcard/RECTOOLS/
6) Reboot :
Please don't delete the recovery archive in your sdcard, or redo 4) and 5) if you have deleted it./adb shell reboot recovery

Nice job man. Tested and Approved its save my phone
When i'm doing exactly that command :
adb push RECTOOLS/ /sdcard/rectools/
I obtain this error :
Error : "cannot stat 'RECTOOLS/': No such file or directory
Next I've tried to create this folder on sdcard's root, but i obtain the same result...
And next, do you experience the same thing as me ?
After flashboot, when the samsung splash loop during recovery mode, i couldn't do the first adb command line, because the device was detected offline, whereas it was plugged...i've unplugged & reconnected and now adb is ok with galaxy online...but the second command don't work...
Thanks for your help

please check is the RECTOOLS is on the same directory you launch the command (on your computer)
Hi ggtorrent, are you doing this on windows?
If so, just remove the trailing slash from the local RECTOOLS folder when you do the push:
with respect to the "offline" status in adb - yes, this has happened to me several times... simply unplugging/re-plugging has fixed the issue every time../adb push RECTOOLS /sdcard/rectools/
I followed the instructions with this modification and everything seems to be good!
(now I just need to figure out how to use it! )
Hope this helps,
Can't seem to edit the post to hide my stupidity, but "how to run it" is simply to boot into recovery mode, at any time, after this process has been run.
In recivery mode you then have a cool new UI that enables you to save and restore (amongst other things).
I haven't had the guts to try a restore yet, but just did a backup and it seems to have saved a single file called "mem", size 109 megs, in /sdcard/nandroid
That's it Tao !
Thanks a lot !
It works perfectly, my system is backed up.
Thanks Drakaz too.
What about next updates from samsung ? There will be no problem ?
