I flashed miui ROM coming from purity to test it, but now I'm not able to restore my backup because I can't access to cwm.. On the bootloader page it says that now my bootloader is locked.. Why? And what I have to do now?

Watching better I saw that my BL is unlocked still.. So I guess that I just have to reflash cwm @adb right ?

if you go to the android laying on its back, that's the stock recovery. all you have to do is flash a custom recovery, i recommend the twrp recovery, not cwm.

I'll second the recommendation for installing TWRP instead of CWM. It's a much nicer interface overall.

Are you rooted? If so you could install BootLoader from Play, press unlock, and then flash a custom recovery to restore your backup.

Use an app called "Flashify" to flash either recoveries mentioned. Super easy
