I recently made a nAndroid backup using TWRP. I backup System,Data, Boot. I would like to know if i make a full wipe(wipe everything except external storage), will I be able to restore it, or I just restore it without wiping anything over the current ROM ? Thanks in advance guys

PS. I am in a bit of a hary

If you're downgrading or upgrading your firmware then you might not be able to use your backup. but 99 percent that you're good to go!

Depends on what you consider a full wipe.

If you wipe (delete) the backup, then no.
If the backup is on your sd card and you do NOT wipe the sdcard you will be able to restore.

If you delete everything on your phone EXCPET /recovery partiton and your backup you will be able to restore.
Also I don't recommend wiping the /boot partiton because A) It is required to boot the phone B) Some phones have the recovery on the /boot partition and wiping /boot would leave you without the recovery.

So basicly in 90% of time you will be able to restore (unless you really screw up)
