Default [Q] [SOLVED]Phone not connecting to Samsung KIES because of F2FS file system?

I'm on Cosmic CM ROM with F2FS file system on my phone. Phone is working smooth but just that I had backed up my data with KIES which I cannot connect to after installing the ROM.

Phone connects properly to the PC but not to KIES. I tried the KIES troubleshooting connection but didnt work either.
Please help. Thanks

Tragedy on my side then. I searched over the net for this and got the same answer that KIES doesn't recognize Custom ROMs. So, I have lost my backed up data then

Only option is revert back to stock..restore data... Backup data in a much more restorable form ...
U didnt lost ur backed up data u cant just restore it...
Btw what is the extesion of backed up file in kies? :/
Nokia 1100 > Nokia 6600 > Nokia N72 > Nokia n95 > Nokia N86 > Htc Touch > Xperia U > Galaxy S2Plus > Galaxy S2 > Galaxy Grand Duos > NEXUS 5

Feel FREE to pm me in case u need technical support (not developer level ) or want any suggestion.

I know that I haven't lost the data as it still resides on my PC. The extensions of the files are as below:
Configuration.bk
applications files are with .apk so i wonder if it will install the fresh app from playstore and not in the actual state when I had taken the backup.
One good thing about the backup is that music files are in .mp3 and photos are in .png or .jpeg which is cool.
So, just cannot restore the apps then and the SMemo files
