Default [Q] Not booting after restore backup

Hi guys ,

So i installed CM10 on my galaxy s but i didn't like the music player alternatives.
Before installing cm10 i made a backup i didn't had any custom rom installed before cm10.
so after using cm10 for a few weeks i decided to restore the backup from cwm.
I cleared the cache and dalvik cache and restore the backup.
then i rebooted the phone and it hanged on the GT-I9000 screen, so i decided to boot into cwm.
Then i saw this:
E:unknown volume for path [/data]
E:unknown volume for path [/data]
E:unable process volume! Skipping...
checking /cache...
E:unknown volume for path [/cache]
E:unknown volume for path [/cache]
E:unable process volume! Skipping...
Done!
E:unknown volume for path [/cache/recovery/command]
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E:unknown volume for path [/cache/recovery/log]
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E:Cant open / cache/recovery/log
E:unknown volume for path [/cache/recovery/last_log]
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log
E:unknown volume for path [/cache/recovery/command]

I found almost similar threads, but they had another cause of the problem and the solution for those threads were not clear to me.
NOTE: 1. Sorry for my english im dutch. 2. i dont know a lot about stuff like this so a simplified explanation or tutorial would be helpfull

TY VM guys

With what tool did you make the backup??? Clockwork Mod Recovery???

CM 10.x is based on CWM-Recovery and i think the backup of before your test with CM10. is not compatible with CWM Recovery ...

Maybe you have to get back via odin to the android-version you had before and flash then the backup ...

Don't worry, your download mode is probably OK so it will be OK then

Your mistake was that you've tried to restore nadroid image that was created with different ROM, kernel or CWM recovery version. If only one of these isn't the same, you can end in bootloop, losing the possibility to boot into recovery or to reboot the system.

The solution: you must flash exactly the same ROM, kernel and CWM version like before and then you can restore your nandroid backup without any problem. Here is my unbrick guide that saves aprox. one i9000 per day:

All the download links are working. Now you must flash anyway any of the stock ROMs 2.2x or 2.3x probably with the PIT file. Be sure to chose ROM with baseband for your region, otherwise you may not be able to use the phone in your country.
