    after "Wipe data / factory Reset" it won't reboot, Lenovo Logo keep showing and won't continue, please help

    Is there other alternative for this app? each time I try to use it and other versions of the same app, I can't restore the back up (get this msg or something like it "error when formatting data") and so if I reboot anyway I then get stuck on the logo. And the only way to use the phone after that is reinstalling the rom.

  4. Thanks, this helps however on the restore steps I opted for a different options. So instead of using "Advance Restore" and do separate restore on cache and data I just opt for normal restore which restore everything. I did try the advance restore before but it was crashing on me, however after doing the normal restore it works ok.
