problems restoring hellybean
I have been using hellybean for a couple of months now. I have found that I have problems doing restore to a previous version.
Some background. I have had SD card issues in every version after 20131013. MY SD card frequently becomes inaccessible . I have not been able to find a solution for this so I end up reverting back to 20131013 release. Each time a new release comes out I try it. The SD card issue is still there for me in the 20131029 version which for me makes it unusable......
Anyway, I always do a back up before trying a new version. What I have found is that that I can't restore with my backup. The phone boots but when the hellybean animation appears it is blue instead of red. It spins and spins and eventually the phone just shuts off.
At this point I have to boot into recovery and do a wipe and install to get back to a working phone.
If I do a backup and restore on the currently installed version everything works as expected. The restore issue also occurs if I try to restore after installing a different 4.3 rom.
Can any one tell me what is causing this?
My Recovery is TWRP 188.8.131.52
