Default [Q] Restoring backups from 4.1.2 onto 4.3

Hi, recently I tried to flash a 4.3 ROM onto my C5303 as an upgrade from 4.1.2. I backed up my phone (using Sony's software), and it turned out that I had to restore the backup since my phone got wiped in the process of upgrading. The thing is, whenever I try to restore the backup via PC Companion, I always get an error message and the restore fails.

Is there a way to go about doing this, or are all of my data and settings lost?

Thanks for all the help.

1) downgrade back to 4.1
2)restore
3)root your phone
4)backup your apps and data(sms,calls,wifi) using titanium backup(make sure you use your external sd to backup your stuff because you may format internal memory)
4)update to 4.3 keeping root
5)restore from titanium backup

Hi, thanks for the reply. Is there a way to go about doing this without Titanium Backup?

Thanks a lot for the help, looks like I'll have to do this the long way via Titanium Backup. >_<
