Re: Lost Backup with Android Gingerbread upgrade

Hi,


I rooted my Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc which was on ICS OS. Before rooting I used the SE Back and Restore application to take my backup. After the root was completed, I copied the apk file for the same from my PC to the root SD folder (also tried updating the build.prop file and deskclock.apk as was mentioned in some other forum).


Now when I try to install the backup and restore apk file, it just doesnot install. Screenshot attached. I really need help in restoring all my data.Screenshot_2012-07-18-23-44-54.png

Re: Lost Backup with Android Gingerbread upgrade

tried Backup and restore.apk from three different links but it does not install. Is there any other way I can restore/read data from the backup file (*.sbf)
