    hello i want to restore my backup which i did 1 year ago before i installed purexaudio rom to my rooted xperia z

    problem is neither twrp or nandroid manager could read it,
    "also i cant remember with which of those i did create this recovery it was made on january 2014 as i read in the recovery.log"

    its in this order

    boot.emmc.win
    boot.emmc.win.md5
    data.ext4.win000
    data.ext4.win000.md5
    data.ext4.win001.md5
    recovery.log
    system.ext4.win
    system.ext4.win.md5

    yet i cant restore it "neither of the two apps can detect my backup folder and when i manual browse it show empty", can someone tell me what im missing here? also i noticed in twrp boot menu theres option to wipe>factory rest i wonder if this could be alternative? is it safe to use? will it remove purexaudio rom? im sorry im asking alot but i dont know where to go, xperia z becoming relic and cant really find help anywhere else, thanks for your time reading this and hope someone can help me.

    From your file listing it looks like a TWRP backup; if you open RECOVERY.LOG in a text editor/viewer you should be able to confirm this. I don't know why it's not recognised though.

    A factory reset won't remove a custom firmware; you'll have to reinstall the stock firmware using FlashTool. You could try a "repair installation" via PC Companion, but I don't think it works if you've unlocked the bootloader.
