    Hi there, I just installed a rom which I wasn't really a fan of and wanted to go back to my original settings, I did a backup using CwM Recovery but now when I try to restore it it has an error.

    Checking MD5 suns...
    Erasing boot before restore...
    Restoring boot image...
    system.img not fund. skipping restore of /system.
    data.img not found. skipping restore of /sdcard/.android_secure.
    cache.img not found. skipping restore of cache.

    any help?

    Sounds like its not backed up properly. Always check in your backup folder after a backup that has been done, you shouls either see these 6 files (CWM V5):

    OR these 5 files (CWM V4):

    Sounds like you have a cwm version miss match. I've had cwm v5 backup that I could not restore as I had cwm 4 operational.
    Install a kernel with the version of cwm that you used to perform the backup and the restore should work fine unless of course as steslatt mentioned there is actually a file missing

    I think you may have hit the nail on the head there hawker, the version of cwm I have installed now is 4 something or other but the version I did the backup on is 5, which kernel has this off the top of your head?

    Since in CWM V5, there are tars, rather then img files, how do I use fastboot to restore these?
