I had a major problem yesterday restoring a nand backup. Using this recovery, I made a backup. I was coming from full stock ep4, rooted, and self-debloated. I then flashed the 12/11 infinity-tsm-ext rom. I found some temporary turnoffs (which I'll discuss in another thread) and decided to revert. The first time I tried to restore the backup, it failed at the rfs format step. I suspected this had something to do with the ext4 formatting that was done when I flashed the rom. So then I flashed the stock ep4 image to get everything back to the way it should be. When I tried to restore again, it failed at the same point. I tried a second time (reflash stock and start over), and again failure.

could my backup have been bad?

Basically what I'm saying is that every file I've ever flashed with Odin has had .tar.md5 at the end of the file name. The latest cwm ends in just .tar and it threw me for a loop. I wanted to make sure that was correct before flashing this on my phone. Thanks.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but Odin checks if a file is able to be flashed before it actually does the flash. Regargless of extension.
.tar.md5 is just a naming convention but not a requirement.

It's weird, I downloaded it on my home computer and it was .tar.md5. I tried it here at work and it was .tar.tar.

I had an odd issue with the restore feature last night. For some reason when it began the system portion of the restore it suddenly said it could not mount system - and this issue persisted across several re-entries into CWM (and across CWM versions - at least the 4.0.1.4 that I flashed after the problem occurred) when trying to flash anything. Perhaps there was an issue when backing up the system partition, as I've had no issues with restore and this version of CWM prior to this incident. That being said, a re-ODIN to EP4D fixed everything just fine, and the advanced restore - data function worked great. Just thought I'd report the oddity.

So I'm going to assume it is ok to flash this recovery file then?
