Hi all
having a few problems, hope someone can help! All has been great for months and months but my sd card was getting filled with lots of rubbish, sooo my plan was to backup all my stuff, format it, change my ext from 1 gig to 512mb, upgrade to cwm 6.0.0.8 and basically start again.
So first rom I tried was CM10.1 ( i was looking forward to the OTA updates) but when I tried it didn't go well. Lost most apps, play store, accounts. So I just flashed it normally. Then I made a backup so I could try PACMAN rom. Now when I went to restore my backup I'm getting 'failed to restore sd' or 'failed to restore sd ext'. Some backups work and others dont... :blink:
Any idea's ? format my sd card again?
Cheers surf

upgrade to cwm 6.0.0.8

When did you do this ?
After making the backup ? If that's the case it's quite likely that the backup isn't compatible.
Try downgrading to the version of CWM you were on before
