Can't restore previous backup from Safestrap on new phone!
I received a replacement S5 today because my previous phone had a screen defect. I was running a custom rom through safestrap. When I did the initial install of safestrap I did a stock rom backup. I then loaded my custom rom on the phone and had it fully configured the way I like it. Before I sent my phone off for replacement I did a backup of my custom rom and saved it on my external sd memory card.
Flash forward to the new phone. I root it, install safestrap, boot into recovery and go to restore and my custom rom backup is not listed there as an option to restore to. Is there something additional I need to do to allow this new phone to restore that previous backup? Are the backups some how tagged to only work on a specific serial number or something?
Any assistance is greatly appreciated. I'm new to safestrap so hopefully its something simple I'm missing within the settings. If I go to the internal file manager within safestrap I can browse to my backup so I know its there and visible on the memory card, it just will not show up as an option to restore from when I access that menu within safestrap.
