Has Nandroid restore been tested yet? I made a (compressed) image, flashed to a different rom for testing, and on restore, TWRP is showing successful, but I get returned to bootloader because I appear to have no (edit) boot data.

Reflashed rom, and restored everything but boot and I'm good to go.

Check your sdcard for a twrp folder. In there (and inside some other subfolders) you should find your backup. Look for one called boot.win. Rename this to boot.img and try to open it with a image viewing tool. Make sure that it isn't 0 bytes in size. Also might help if you upload the file somewhere like dropbox or the like and provide a link. Do you know what kernel you were using?

Boot.win is 8MB, and is not compressed -- As I'd selected to compress backups, it is trying to decompress this and flash the output?

problem here..............was using latest 4g teamwin recovery and it did not restore properly. Sent me to fastboot. So i flash clockwork back and now any backup i try to restore gives me an error: "error while flashing boot image!". Anyone got any idea? I did fastboot erase recovery and then i did fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

UPDATE: Ok so i did a fresh backup with clockwork and then restored. Apparently for me, no backup (from clockwork) that was made before i flashed Teamwin Recovery will work. Only a fresh one made after an install and uninstall of Teamwin. Weird.

I'm not sure how I feel about backup images that are not compatible with fastboot. Other than that, this is mighty tasty.

P.S. You lost your horse? Whatever...

Hope that clears it up.

Just gave this a whirl on mine and it worked 100%. I did a full wipe first. Restored my compressed backup. Booted (see my boot animation below).
