Im trying to restore my backup made of vortex rc1, CWM is "skipping, backup not found". I did make a copy of my backup on my computer bc of similar problems in the past, can anyone help me with restoring the backup saved on my PC?

Did you by any chance use a different CW recovery version to back it up? If you made the backup with 5.x.x.x and are trying to restore on 2.x.x.x you need to flash the latest version of CW, otherwise it won't read it.

But you can get rom manager on there to flash recovery version 5.0.2.0 after you use bootstrap to hijack the recovery

But you can flash a 2.x.x.x on a later version, right?
