Default CWM Restore 4.1.2 to 4.3.1-> Different Phone.

My screen got broken, and I got a new phone from insurance. I was on 4.3.1, and did a CWM backup which was stored in secure area. I used ADB to copy it off to my PC>

I now have my new phone, and it is 4.1.2. I installed CWM, and copied the files from the PC to the Clockworkmod/Backup directory, now on SD card. When I try to restore, I get a MD5 check error. From both backups.

Do you reckon I need to do something special to restore a CWM to a different phone? Or something about the fact it is 4.2.1, and I'm trying to restore a 4.3.1 backup?

Any thoughts appreciated.

Well, I have tried several things. The backup must just be bad. CWM seems to always fail me when I really need it to work.

I would have used TWRP...but my screen was dead, and so couldn't control TWRP.

Sigh...

Many thanks! This looks promising. I'm doing a TWRP backup of what I have now, and will put CWM back on and give it a try. I'll report back how it goes.

Well, that link is great. It does indicate how to restore the md5, and get the restore going. However, in my case, the data will not restore. So my CWM backup is no good.

Back to TWRP for me.

Appreciate your help.
