Recommended Posts

Hi.

I just updated my G300's rom to CM10, for some reason google won't restore my apps and other data (for example my contacts).

any advice?

anyone? this is really annoying...

I think you will have to do a factory reset, and then click 'restore data to this device' as you are going through the start setup.

Go to Settings>Backup & Reset> Factory data reset

Do a nandroid backup beforehand just in case it doesn't work. Then you can restore the phone to the previous state.

tried that already, I select the restore option and nothing happens... :(

Hmm, I'm not sure what to do then :huh:. Next time, try and backup your apps using a tool such as titanium backup, gobackup, Huawei allbackup etc.

It saves you going through all this hassle :P

K. Did you wipe and not restore anything else? Reboot between wipes? Thinking it could be remnants of your old install. You also should install fresh rather than restore.

yes, I wiped and restored from google all the information, also rebooted between wipes.

still doesn't restore.

thanks.

Do you have a nandroid backup of your previous ROM? If you do, you could:

- Restore to it

- Download a 'backup' application

- Backup all your apps and settings

- Install the new ROM

- Download the same 'backup' app again

- Restore your data ;)

Maybe that would work.

P.s. what stuff do you need to restore? Contacts, apps, everything?

Is it a bad download of gapps? Are your contacts on your Google account?

Restoring settings from ICS to JB may cause problems. I wouldn't do it.

Use my method if you can, but only restore your apps and contacts. Don't restore system apps/data like fr0do said as this may have compatibility problems.
