[Q] Blank Screen when Restoring Stock Backup from CWM
following the instructions on cyanogenmod.org, I have flashed CWM (using heimdall), then made a cwm backup of the stock rom, then installed CM10.1.3 stable. Works great.
Now I'm trying to restore my stock backup temporarily because I forgot to export my address book and my text messages (stupid me, I know). Of course, I have made a cwm backup of my CM first.
I wipe everything (factory reset in cwm), then restore my stock backup in cwm, and it goes through smoothly. However, when I reboot, after the Samsung logo there's the boot sound, and the screen goes blank completely. Nothing happens after that.
I can reboot (hold down power button forever), go back to cwm, and restore my CM backup, and everything works perfectly again. But I can't get my stock backup to work.
Can anyone help? Or is there a way to find the address book or text messages in the cwm backup files manually?
