RESOLVED (sort of): With some help from a couple forum members (shane1 and TjNaps27), I finally managed to get the old Safestrap backup restored to my new Maxx HD. Thanks, guys. Now I just want some answers (from Google/Motorola/Verizon/Whoever) about and a permanent, real fix for the freakin '
' problem (which was clearly part of the problem with this restore process for me).
Here's where this thread originally started...
[Sorry if this isn't OK to create in this section. I just thought this was the place for it, since it has to do with Hashcode's Safestrap. If not, please move it and forgive me. Thanks ]
First off, I'm not freaking out. I know I just did something wrong, and I will get it taken care of eventually. I just need a little hand-holding...
Any chance you'd be willing to help me out with the restore process?
My Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD just got replaced on a junk-out, because the USB/charging port went bad (Replaced with another brand new Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD that has 4.0.4 from the factory).
Prior to the replacement, I saved a backup with Safestrap on the old one (which was running at Android 4.1.1), and now I'm trying to restore it on the replacement one, but I'm having trouble.
I moved and renamed the folder in which Safestrap originally created the backup (didn't change anything about the individual files' names) to a different place (on my PC), got a new SD card, and copied the files onto the new SD card.
Then, once I had the replacement Maxx HD, I rooted with the Razr HD Utility 1.10, and put Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper on it and backed up SU, and then put Safestrap on it and installed recovery.
Then I booted up to Safestrap and went into the restore option, and at that point, the backup from the old one (which I moved and changed the folder names for) did not displayed.
Just to make sure I knew Safestrap was working, I performed a backup on the replacement one, and then, when I went into 'Restore', that new backup shows up (So, it's working).
That made me think that renaming the folders and/or moving them may have messed up permissions or something. So, I checked the chmod permissions by looking at all of the folders and files in Root Explorer, but they all look the same on all folders and files in both backup sets.
Then, I moved the files of the new, test backup out of the 'stock-????' folder, and moved the files from the old backup in there. When I booted up to Safestrap then, the old backup showed up.
Then, I chose to restore the old backup, and for the most part, it looked like it worked (including restoring 'system' and both data archives), but then when I rebooted the system (multiple times now), it gets to the default startup animation (with no sound), and just stays there with the animation running.
I then wiped system and internal storage and went through the restore process again, but resulted in the same thing.
Now, I assume I missed something (either by general ignorance, or perhaps even not following instructions completely).
So, I'm going back through the instructions. I just don't see it right off the top.
Would you/anyone be willing to troubleshoot this with me (or simply point me in the right direction)?
Edit: during the restore, just after it said "done restoring" for the system part, it said,
"E:Unable to unmount /system", and then it went on to restore the data part.
I didn't know why that would be a problem, but I suspect it may be the clue that I'm supposed to learn from.....just not sure what...
Also, when I click the command prompt icon at bottom center of the Safestrap screen, I see the following text...
E:unknown volume for path [/]
Oh... here's a screenshot from the restore process...
