Iv looked everywhere on a way to restore my backed up RAW TA with flashtool but cant find anything

To be clear , I have backed up DRM keys via flashtool, so I have no choice but to restore with flashtool, I cant make another backup bootloader Unlocked

1.I made a RAW back up of my TA xperia z ultra, I dont know where flashtool keeps the backup or what its called

2. How do i connect my phone if i want to restore? does it need to be in fastboot, or flashmoder?

3.If i just connect it normaly with usb debugging on, click restore from advanced setting, all it does is say install busy box, once i do that
it just crashes after that.

You need to make back up using this tool http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2292598.
There is no need for flashtool for backing TA.
For restoring TA there is backup folder created (after backing TA) inside original TA app directory . Click on that folder inside there will be zip which you need to restore using TA app.

I already have a backup which has my DRM keys made on flashtool that is the only back i can restore. because my bootloader is no unlocked, there is no Zip file in flashtool directory

this is the third thread that you have asked this question in I'm getting dizzy

It looks like it is saved int a folder in /flashtool/custom

I'm sure you could have found out that if you had of looked hard enough instead of making me look for you...
