[SOLVED] Trying to Restore all my App Data to a new ROM (Cyanogenmod)
This is the first time for me posting in a forum asking for help about an android device so go easy. I have rooted my Nexus 4 running Android 4.3 and installed TWRP 18.104.22.168 on it. That was the first time I rooted an android. I used Titanium Backup (Pro) to backup all of my user apps + system data. Then I transferred the backup to my PC. Then I created a nandroid backup using TWRP. Then I cleared the cache, dalvik cache, and factory reset the phone using TWRP. Then I installed Cyanogenmod 10.1.2 mako, which is marked as stable, along with the Gapps found on Goo.im. It worked successfully and I set up my brand new ROM. Then when I restore using TiBU ( I press the button called "Restore Missing Apps + all system data), it restores successfully until it gets to about 70% where it begins telling me that "There was a problem parsing the package" or "x App not Installed". TiBu then instructed me to reboot in order for system data to take effect after the restore, and I follow that order. Finally, my phone gets stuck in the boot animation of Cyanogenmod. I've gone in to recovery and did the entire process of flashing the CM ROM again and the same thing happened to me again. So I just restored my nandroid backup and now am on the stock ROM again. I've tried to look online but could not find any solution or reason. Remember that this was my first rooted Android device and I am not a pro at this stuff. I'm not asking for how to get out of the boot animation (I already know that), just why this problem is occuring and some possible solutions. Thank you. I think the reason is that I am not supposed to restore system data? Also, what is system data? Is it like WiFi passwords or something?
[SOLVED] i have found the solution. it was that i tried to restore system data which caused the problem. everything is great now!
