    I searched for this question before posting, and I haven't managed to find the answer:

    Before flashing Ice Cream Sunday (cm7.2 basically) over 2.3.3 stock, I did a backup using cwm 5 recovery.

    Now, I want to go back to 2.3.3, and if possible restore my apps, settings, accounts, and the rest of them.

    My question is: can I simply do a restore using cmw5, or do I have to use the pinned tutorial made my Chrismay?

    smsgAce,

    I've moved your thread to the all-things-root sub-forum where you'll hopefully get more views and replies (it may just be the root guys didn't see your thread).

    Good luck!

    yes, u can restore ur ealier cm backup from recovery menu.
    cm backups are stored on sd card in folder "clockworkmod". so if u have formated ur sd card, u have lost all ur backups. ;)

    Will this restore the rom too? If so do you need to factory reset etc first?

    CWM5 supports legacy backups.
