Unhappy [Q] Screwed up Restore?

this is what happened:

1) rebooted into recovery

2) backup

3) flash an inverted app via zip file - sucessful

4) reboot

5) i didnt like the inverted app so was going to restore my earlier backup

6) rebooted into recovery

7) flashed the restore

8) device stuck at "Samsung Galaxy Note N7000", cant get into CWM/bootloader


i had to go into odin mode and flash a stock rom

Did you try a battery pull and restart two or three times?

In the past I've had it stuck at the welcome screen a few times. I always wait ten minutes cos sometimes it does take a ROM that long to load, but when the phone gets so hot I've done a battery pull and then restarted a few minutes later. After two or three goes I've been lucky to get the phone back with the ROM i had selected.

Is your ROM an ICS ROM?

If so then follow this thread to restore your backup

Default hmm

It probably crashed because it has different kernel, rom, CWM etc.

Flash your original rom first(rom you want to restore), and then try restoring your back up.
