So I have a C6603 that had andoid 4.3. I rooted it and flashed the ROM after a loooong time of finding the right assets, anyway.... I backed up my 4.3 using CWM, then I flashed my ROM to the PAC-ROM. I saved the backup on my SD-card and I can't find it anywhere. The phone works with a few minor hickups, but nothing i can't handle. I'm afraid the SD-card was formatted and my backup is gone..... Is there now no way i can revert to stock android as it were, installing 4.4 when that arrives and so on???

yeah it appears that your sd card has been formatted, but no worries u can still flash ftf of sony stock rom or even a cwm flashable zip
so when 4.4 comes out just flash the ftf via flashtool or a cwm flashable zip

first download any root browser and go to data/media/clockworkmod/backup and check if the backup in there , if not then go to your sdcard and check lost.dir folder and check the lost.dir folder on internal storage , check the size of the files in it , if the size is big ( approximately = size of the backups ) then your backup is been lost and not deleted and u can recover it easily
i wish u can find your backup bro

This is a real nooby question.... but it I do this will it be the same as if I never flashed the phone in the first place? or will i maybe experience problems since I flashed it and didn't update normally??

Just copy/paste the backup to the sd card clockworkmod folder
But beware is you on a older version of recovery you cant restore it because of a md5 mismatch and twrp wil not reconize the nandroid unless you change the format of the backup

The backup already is there, but as I installed the ROM the phone switched from CWM recovery to Team Win Recovery project, and it can't find the backup! I downloaded ROM manager and chose CWM as the recovery program, but everytime the phone boots into recovery it launches TWRP, which does not find the backup. The backup was easily found in ROM manager and it told me that it would turn of my phone and get back to the old 4.3, as soon as it turned back on it launched TWRP and it did not do anything -_-
