Hey guys,

Last week i flashed CM11 in my S3. Before doing it, i did a nandroid backup via recovery and backed up apps + system data via TBP.

I didn´t realize that i had all my photos saved in my internal memory, so i didn´t save them before wiping.

Since i did a Nandroid, my photos must be stored there, right?

My question is:

Is it possible to recover all the pictures from that backup, without having to flash it? Maybe via "mskip" Gs3 Toolkit?

Thanks for your time!!

Walter
