[Q] How to safely restore with Nova Recovery?
I really feel that now is the time to ask for an expert advice. A week ago I purchased my first Android device and it's Optimus Black.
It came with version V10C and I got it successfully rooted with the help of useful pointers from this page
. Next logical step was installing Nova Recovery
and backing up my freshly rooted stock ROM before flashing it with Nova 4.5
. All without any troubles so far.
Now I've been playing around with it for a couple of days and just stumbled into something that made me thinking of going back to my rooted stock ROM. Temporarily of course, just to see if the problem exists there as well. The specific problem itself is with Monkey Island under ScummVM where there are many errors with picture drawing (please see the attached image) and also audio is missing. Friend's HTC device plays the same without any errors.
Ok, to the question. How can I restore my backed up stock ROM, test the game there and then switch back to Nova 4.5? And by 'how' I mean how can I do it safely without any problems? Do I have to wipe data before both restores? Will there be any trouble from EXT3/EXT4 differences? I presume there will be no problems executing recovery from stock ROM as it was already rooted before backing it up. I have already backed up my current Nova 4.5 setup and I'm ready to hit restore on my first backup. Will it be that simple or is there something that I should know and/or prepare myself for?
Well, that's what I wanted to ask from you. Thank you all in advance!
