use 7 zip pc software to extract it first....

He is right...
Extract Rom files containing {system,kernel,etc} via "unrar" or "7zip" program from PC.
If your phone is rooted : put files in"clockworkmod/backup " folder.(cwm recovery) then restore from recovery place
Not rooted: dl flashtools app or se companion.
Using se-com is easy but in flashtools you have to put files in"framework"folder which is in the place where you install it.press lightening button in program and flash files.:)

    Its a backup.
    Extract the files in
    /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/"make a folder here of whatever name you like and extract the contents in this folder"

    now go to recovey->backup and restore->restore and you are done

    You can't. Open the file and extract the .tft file (flash it via flashtool)

    The .7z file contains system.img,data.img,cache.img and nandroid.md5. So I am confused! Recovery can only install .zip format.
