Help! My phone just wiped everything!

So I rebooted my phone then all of a sudden it takes me to the whole GB introduction screen and removes all my apps. I had Custom ICS installed and used Titanium Backup but I can't restore anything, all that's left is SuperUser so my phone is still rooted.

So can anyone help me how to restore everything?

It's gone. It would've wiped data. That typically only happens automatically when you perform a hard firmware upgrade.

Did you flash a new rom. If there was no reason, its a faulty motherboard issue

Hi

Same thing has just happened to me.

Phone is unlocked and rooted running stock GB rom

Updated a few apps via Google play then went to open Dolphin Jetpack and phone froze.

Pressed power button and screen went black and unresponsive.

Did a battery pull and on boot up the phone is wiped and back to the android welcome screen?

Super su is still present as the previous poster says.

Have no idea why this has happened?

Can anyone help?

Cheers

Steve

this is a horrible, horrible bug.

still got my fingers crossed it doesn't hit either of the 2 phones i've given to family members (hasn't yet!). i do have titanium backups, but i'd still be needed there to restore them, and presumably it could happen again, so phone would still need replacing.. :/

Luckily I have a clockwork backup form end July so have restored phone almost.

Just hope it doesn't happen again now.

Its only 6 months old but I don't really want the hassle of tasking it back so fingers crossed!

Which android build are you running on?

I had this issue with a stock from from LG on my previous phone, I'm more thinking on a firmware issue than a faulty motherboard.

Hi

just had my phone wipe itself completely again!

Last time I managed to restore a cwm backup and all was fine.

This time I can't seem to restore my phone properly no matter what I try it only seems to half do it?

I get into cwm and it says its restored but it only seems to do half of it?

Launcher pro force closes along with a few other apps.

Running b885 stock rom with root.

Any help would be much appreciated!

All of these random wipes seem to only happen on gingerbread. Why don't you upgrade?

Are you using the official method?

- Download official B952 from huawei

- Extract the 'dload' zip and put it on the root of your SD card

- Turn off the phone, remove battery, and then put the battery back in

- Turn on the phone while holing volume buttons simultaneously

- A pink bar should pop up, and once it progresses to the end, the phone should boot to ICS B952.
