Default Nandroid backup and restore with Amon-ra

I am used to making backups and restoring with CWR on my EVO but now that I have the Rezound and CWR does not work, I make Nandroid backups with Amon-ra but am not able to restore them. I read somewhere that some things need to checked while on recovery mode but I am not sure what. What do I need to do to make a proper Nandroid Backup? And also do I need to flash anything else after I restore a backup?

If restoring an ics build coming from ics(or gb to gb) no additional flashing should be needed. Should only be needing to backup system data cache and boot. If you do s-off exploit, you can restore boot.IMG directly through the nandroid.

Go to this thread and download the file
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1547496

I know for sure it works with amon ra. Flash it in recovery, I think it boots automatically afterwards into bootloader, flash the image, reboot and it will go back into recovery on its own then flash your nandroid. Then all should be well. Just flashing nandroid will not allow the phone to boot

I've restored several times through Amon Ra backups. I back up the usual stuff and the Android secure file. So far no problems at all.

I recieved my CLNR from verizon yesterday. Made a nandroid last night.
Today I have unlocked, rooted and now I am trying to restore my nandroid.
This is what it looks like:

x boot
x system
x data
x cache
recovery
sd-ext
x android_secure
android_secure_internalsd

perform restore
return

I hit perform restore and this is what happens

oops....something went wrong. Please check the recovery log!

What does that mean and where do I go from here?

Thanks

Heather
