cant restore my 4.1.2 backups after flashing a 4.3 rom?
i searched around a bit and only found threads on the imei issues on this jump back, but basically over all what i did was i was on moar v6 which is a 4.1.2 rom, and wanted to try out pacman rom which is 4.3
well i want to go back to my moar rom to grab some files that got wiped
so yea this is my first time really messing around with 4.3 roms and i know a lot got changed, and after i tried restoring my old backups and it failed i figured something is up
so what do i need to do to get my backups working?Would You Kindly?...

Re: cant restore my 4.1.2 backups after flashing a 4.3 rom?
When you say backup, do you mean a nandroid, or something like Titanium backup?
Android 4.3 changes the file structure of the device to support the multi-user interface. There's a thread around somewhere with a fix for getting back. Let me search.....
I found this (look at post #10. (Where it says AOSP, it really means 4.3.) There's probably more out there, but I don't have time to search right now.
So what I think you'd have to do to restore an older backup would be to move everything that's below the 0 folder back up a level, and delete the 0 folder.
If nothing else, you could follow Skunkape's procedure to revert back to stock, reroot, and then restore: [UPDATED 12/30/2012][Sprint Only]UnRoot and Return to stockBROKE MY WRIST AND TYPING ONE-HANDED! Please forgive all typos.
PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
Give a person an answer, and you've solved one problem. Teach a person to search, and you have helped them solve problems forever.
