    OK, so I have a backup of stock C on my external. I flashed GT's kernel and the F aboot yesterday (love it so far). Wanted to restore C to check something and then restore my current backup after I'm done. Basically what I'm asking, if I restore my stock backup, will that replace the kernel and the aboot? Will it replace the kernel and not the aboot? Will it replace the aboot and not the kernel?

    I need to know because I don't want to restore and have it replace the aboot with the C aboot, and not the kernel, because I'm sure that would cause huge problems. If it's an issue, I can restore, then flash the aboot before I reboot, but I need to know before I do anything.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm 99.99% sure it will restore every thing to your backup

    Here's an easy solution....

    Restore the backup which will also restore the kernel you were using at the time of the backup. Before booting your phone after restoring the backup flash the F aboot. This will eliminate any doubts.

    Yeah that's what I said at the end of the OP.. Version C can run with the F aboot right?

    Thanks GT

    Yet another weird thing about the motion lol. On any phone I've ever owned the kernel that was backed up is fully restored. CWM recovery backs up boot.img(kernel) and recovery.img for sure.

    It's beyond me why that happened to you.

    Well glad things are working for you now... I hope. lol

    Yeah :) everything is good. Just a note to everyone, if you restore a backup that had a custom kernel on it, reflash the kernel just to be sure (and aboot if you did the first time).

    Thanks for the help GT, I appreciate it ;)
