[Q] Tried to use CWM to make a nandroid backup on 4.3 ML1. Is there a way back?
I rooted using Saferoot. I wanted to backup the phone before trying safestrap. After searching around a bit, it looked like a nandroid backup would be the way to go. To find out how to do this I followed the 2 links below:
I downloaded ROM manager and proceeded to let it find the "correct version of CWM for your phone". In the process it requested root access and tried to flash a custom recovery. Then I got the following message when I tried to boot into recovery mode:
SECURE FAIL: KERNEL
System software not authorized by Verizon Wireless ...
After posting the result on the thread below, I was quickly told that I shouldn't try custom recovery on an ML1 OTA phone. Of course now, I sure wish I'd researched a bit more before trying.
I didn't want to derail that thread any further so I started this one.
Is there anything I can do to undo what I've done? I don't really want to unroot, but it sounds like that has nothing to do with it anyways.
Should I still be okay to use Safestrap?
