Hey all. I recently had a custom rom all nice and set up (it was jedi) and I decided I wanted to see how an aosp rom looked on my n3. So, like a good boy, I backed up my data, system, and boot partitions. Once done I flashed my aosp, checked it out, saw potential, but decided I wanted to go back (for now). Anyway, upon restoring, my jedi rom wasn't the same. It got buggy. The power button stopped putting the screen to sleep and because of this (I think), he device started freezing up a bit. This was especially true when rebooting.

I'm posting here to ask if this was just a fluke for me? Have others had issues with restoring anything? I'm tempted to try a different aosp but I'm on wicked now and it is SWEET. Wouldn't wanna risk messing it up.

Thanks.

dont quote me, but I think I have read that you should never restore any backups with the Note 3 as there is an issue causing a bunch of bad things to happen. Most the threads I have read through simply say to reflash never restore.

Thanks for the warning...lol. I posted a similar question within a specific roms thread, and nobody really answered.

i backup and restore with TWRP 2-3 times a week when i test the different 4.4 KK ROMs for the note 3. as i understand it (and practice), when restoring backups only restore the System, Boot and Data partitions. this has not failed me one time nor has it caused any issues. i recall that restoring the EFS partition caused device stability issues with earlier versions of the TWRP custom recoveries.

Guess I should consider myself as one of the lucky ones.
