TWRP backup of stock rom makes read only /sdcard [ root:sdcard_r ] on my device.
Fix:
restore everything except data;
boot, set up device, reboot to recovery, restore data without wipe.

Just for the record: As Rox stated to me before, Read Only file system on /sdcard/ is indeed bug related to firmware version. I updated to latest and there is no issue any more.

What app did you used?
I downgraded my phone while ago to be able to root it and I kept old sw version. At the moment we have same sw version though.
