Default Restored ROM and I can't uninstall apps.

I had to return my first moto under warranty and being lazy I made a complete backup through twrp. I restored this to the new phone and wiped cache and dalvik. Now everything works fine except when I try to uninstall any app it will soft reboot the phone. Has anyone encountered this?

You'll probably have to clean install your firmware.

Restoring Nandroids from one phone to another can cause many issues. Especially system partition. There can be phone specific info in there and putting it on a different device, even same model, can cause issues.

Its not what Nandroids are intended for. If your EFS partition had been restored from one device to another let's say, you could easily brick the new phone.

Restoring to a different device with Titanium Backup would have been a better solution. User apps only....NOT system apps.

If you did a nandroid backup of the new phone before you restored, then restore it.

That's what I get for being lazy. I can't restore the factory without it boot looping. So I guess I have to flash through rsd light.

Yup.

Use titanium in the future to backup user apps only. Transfer them to PC for safe keeping if you wish....and restore those.

Nandroids are best left as system images of your device, to restore totally if needed. To same device.

You can use fastboot to restore stock as well. Or RSD.

And mfastboot.
