Hi guys,

I tried searching for it but can't seem to find the answer.
I made multiple backups (on the SD card) using CWM while on CM11 before I tried to flash a custom kernel.
That kernel soft-bricked my phone. To get my phone working again, I used flashtools to flash a stock ROM.

Question: At what point can I restore using the backup made?
Can I restore as soon as I have CWM on my phone again or do I have to have cyanogenmod on it again etcetc

Cheers

Yes you can. By the way, what recovery did you use to backup back then?

I used CWM
I've read that I need to use CWM to do the restore?

Yes, buddy. Just flash any kernel that have CWM recovery. Then you can restore your previous backup.

Try to flash 136 FW. Wipe everything. Then do restore. Hope this help.
