    Hokay, so. About a month ago I made a backup of liberty. I had flashed it once on my phone for one reason or another and it worked fine. I then had to get a replacement phone sent to me. The other day I tried to apply that same backup and it soft bricked my phone. It wouldn't get passed my boot logo. No recovery, no nothing. I had to SBF to recover. What do you guys think could have gone wrong??

    I don't know what went wrong, but I can't imagine an image backup of a phone easily translating to being flashed on another phone...

    yeah but... its the same exact system. It's not like I flashed it on a D2. I dunno. I just deleted all my old backups just incase.

    I would think from on DX to another would work, unless you had it set to overclock or undervolt and the new cpu didn't like the new settings.

    I assume both had the same system version (.340).

    Besides, Liberty 1.5 is out and they recommend a format/reset prior installing. ;)

    That's what I was thinking too but I was and I still am running the same oc/uv settings. It was also just a backup of 1.0. It was more like a week ago.

    Just happened to me. I got a replacement X because 1 of the button lights no longer works. I made a Nandroid from my previous phone and now I'm trying to restore to this replacement X. I keep getting stuck at the boot logo or the recovery screen...

    I started with Maderstock to bring system files current--> Z4 Perm Root--> CWM Install--> Restore

    Did I miss a step? I keep getting stuck. If I wipe data and cache it will load but I end up with a clean Apex 1.4.1 Install, all of my data including apps are gone...

    Any Ideas?

    Wipe everything, install Apex, then just restore data.

    it should work.

    Restoring Data only was the ticket! Thank you. Full System restore kept causing bootloop. Both phones were on the exact same system though... Maderstock then Apex.

    CWM- Advance Restore- Select Backup- Data Only

    That was the ticket for me.

    Thanks for your help,

    Wasn't Liberty 1.0 on .320 and Liberty 1.5 on .340? I am thinking that is the way it happened. I know I had both of them.
