Default [Q] After restore apps keep crashing

Hello,

I have an Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) and last week I thought lets install some ported S5 apps. Well some of them were working but unfortenely most of them weren't. Had alot of crashes and my phone was unusable, so I decided to restore back to the original software.
Before I installed all those S5 apps I made an complete backup using CWM Recovery (Version 6.0.4.7). Now when I the restore completed without errors I constant get errors:
  • The process com.google.process.gapps has stopped.
  • Google Play-services has stopped.
  • Google Partner Setup has stopped.

Those errors return in 1 second after clicking away......
Also after some minutes the phone kinda reboots.. The Samsung Boot Logo shows up but that "reboot" is done after 5-10 seconds. And without any need of entering SIM-Code.

I've tried many options:
  • Clean install the firmware (works but then i've lost all my data
  • Advanced restore of sd-ext but then it won't restore anything...... Because when I wipe data/factory reset the following error shows up:
    -- Wiping data...
    Formatting /data...
    Formatting /cache...
    Formatting /sd-ext...
    E: unknown volume for path [/sd-ext]
    Formatting /sdcard/.android_secure...
    Data wipe complete.
  • Tried wipe Dalviks Cache
  • Tried mounting sd_ext (also mounted any other option just to be sure) and used AROMA FileManager to acces my files but no acces to sd_ext....

If I trie to restore again the following error shows u:
.android_secure.img not found. Skipping restore of sd/card/.android_secure

The issue is that I can get my phone working without errors, but then I've lost ALL my data like photos/videos etc...
A clean install isn't a problem as long I can get my data back, app data like data from games isn't an issue.

Extra info:
OS KitKat 4.4.2 (I9505XXUFNB8_I9505PHNFNB3_PHN)
Rooted with: CF Auto Root jflte

Thanks in advance for your help!

What I would do is to save the data from your internal and external sd that you want to keep.

Then format them both.

So in your case, export your photos and videos to your pc. Format both sd and then try to restore your backup after fully wiping. My guess is that would fix it.
Current:

Samsung Galaxy S 4 I9505 | WanamLite v2.6

Retired:

Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 : AOKP 4.2.1
HTC Touch Pro2 | ROM: Valkyrie 6.5.23115TR2.5
HTC HD2 | DarkStone1337 [FroyoStone Sense - V3.2]
HTC Desire : Oxygen v2.1.3

Yeah that's my plan but one problem...
I can't access my internal storage, even not when I try connecting it with USB... It keeps saying installing samsung mobile driver. (usb drivers is already installed, tried it with 4 different computers)

That's strange. Can't you just copy it to your external sd or use something like Airdroid to copy the files over wifi.

Unfortunaly not... My phone while android is loaded is unusable, the errors come back immediatly after clicking away.... I think the problem is that my all my backups are corrupted... I have 3 backup which I am 100% sure of that my phone worked 100% correctly when I made these backups. All of them give the same errors now, and none of them place my files back.

What I don't understand is why your data on your internal sd would be lost when you wipe your device.

Normally wiping in the recovery doesn't touch your internal sd. Why does it in your case? It only wipes your internal sd when you select that option which is hidden in the recovery.

Do you wipe before restoring?

as already mentioned, copy your important stuff and then do a full wipe including system, data, cache, dalvik, internal and external storage
i9505 \\ 4.4.2 \\ Omega v19 - XXUEML6 - talexop 1.3

In 99% of the casus there is no need to wipe internal/external storage. He would probably not have to do it.
