    Default How to restore original nandroid lable

    I changed the names of my nandroid backups in hopes to lable them so i knew which one was which and now when i try to do a restore it says .md5 mismatch and won't restore. How can i get the original names for the nandroid backup. I have 4 of them and i want to get all the original names. Anyone know how to help?

    Thanks,

    Actually changing the file name of the backup doesn't affect the MD5. It's perfectly safe to do so. Did you recently do an ota update or change which recovery you were using?

    Are you sure about that? I'm sure that I've read something before about not changing the filenames of nandroid backups.

    I always change mine. I I just add a few letters before the date with no spaces and have never had any issues on any of mine.

    I have read that it causes an MD5 mismatch as well, but am having trouble finding a solution at the moment.

    Just read something that says removing the spaces could fix the mismatch. If you added spaces to the name, try removing them.

I do know that changing recoveries or versions of the same and trying to use a backup from another version always causes mismatch unless you revert back to whatever recovery the backup was originally produced with

    Never seen that. Change them all the time. Haven't had a problem restoring any backups.

    Nope. Right now i'm still using an older cwm recovery because the newer ones won't work and im using the optimuswiz rom. Could it be the rom? I have been having alot of problems with it which is why i want to restore my last one.

    Try copying the cwm folder to your computer, delete it on the SD card, and copy it back. That works for some people.

    If your sure there is nothing wrong with the backup, boot into recovery and do this:
    use adb for this.
    adb shell
    You should now see ~ #:
    Read the red, and change it.
    replace <nameofbackup> with the folder your backup is in.

    cd /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/<nameofbackup>/
    rm -rf nandroid.md5
    md5sum *img > nandroid.md5

    Then restore the backup =D

    If nandroid4 is the name of your backup, your file path is incorrect. It should be sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/nandroid4/nandroid.md5. Try that and see if it works.

    You need to pay attention to your spacing. You are typing md5sum*img>nandroid.md5

    You want to type md5sum *.img > nandroid.md5

    Oh but it does. Any weird characters or spaces will throw you a md5 mismatch. Not sure why but it does. For example, the name ice cream sandwich would not work. Icescreamsandwich would.

    Weird characters or blank spaces yes, but I feel like that is common sense to a point. You run across that problem anywhere...android, pc files, usernames, passwords...That's a pretty widely documented don't. Changing the name in the correct format doesn't render the backup useless.

    Change the file name. Erase the star so that it reads .img instead of *.img Close any spaces or fill them with an under score _ or a dash. Then try it. instead of a file reading 2012 04 29, it needs to read 2012-04-29, 2012_04_29, or 20120429

    What I'm about to say is going to upset some, but here I go. You can name a backup anything you want if you use.........ROM Manager. It will get the MD5 sum right. You still can't have any spaces though.
    For further info on what YOU can do, and what you need to avoid doing, read this:
    I have the Premium version just to keep the thread up to date. Everything is true and correct and up to date.
    Quit being scared of ROM Manager. It does have some very good functions, like: Being able to rename and delete a backup, downloading the latest Gapps,etc. Everything is spelled out in my thread.
    I personally don't think the premium version is worth buying, but, it will allow you to do automatic backups if your a flash-a-holic. You can also use the premium version to flash any ROM if you first download obijohn's update_wiper_1.3.zip and put on the sd card. These are things much better left to doing manually, hence no need to pay the $5.00+ the dev want's for the premium version.
