I was running Liquid Jelly and LOVING it. I noticed that my photos in my favorites were fuzzy so foolishly I went into Titanium and restored data for contacts storage. It recommended a reboot, but it would not reboot beyond the white Google screen. No problem right? So I did a battery pull and went into Clockwork Mod and wiped data, cache, and davlik cache then clicked restore from my last nandroid backup. It continues to fail. No problem, I just go to the nadroid before that, it fails, no problem I will restore my last good nandroid before that even though it is ICS, it fails.

Frustrated I think I will just go and reinstall from a clean install but I had deleted the Liquid zip files. No problem, I plug my phone into my laptop and attempt to mount the SD card and drop the file on my SD card but it won't mount now.

Now what do I do?
 
Although I couldn't find it using the above method, I installed the Quick ADB Pusher GUI and pushed the file again and this time it showed up on my SD card. I installed and am awaiting it to boot up. Alas, I am still stuck on the Google screen. As I read more I think I may be a victim of Jelly Bean Boot Up Problems :mad: This sucks.

All because I was so greedy and wanted clear, not grainy pictures.

well when i hit that problem of not being able to restore nandroids and whatnot, i copied everything from media to my computer, wiped EVERYTHING, and took it completely back to stock. this took some time because copying 10GB from phone to computer, and then back to phone was a PITA.

did you try reflashing your ROM?
also, you should switch from CWM to TWRP recovery.

OK, now I'm totally confused . . .

I wiped data (x's 3), wiped cache (x's 3) and wiped davlik (x's 3) a few times during this whole process. When I flashed the ROM I assumed it would be a clean wipe. When my phone booted, EVERYTHING was as I left it.

Let me say this again, I did NOT flash a recovery, I flashed a the ROM brand new and somehow it's as it was on my last boot up.

How is this possible.

Can anyone tell me how this is possible? I thought that when I wiped data, cache and davlik cache I had no ROM left. Somehow all of my pages, widgets and apps were there.

I did lose some modifications. I had to reflash dark SMS, popcorn kernel, blue softkeys, and blue centered lockscreen but everything else was still there. This is a first for me. Any insight?

That's odd, unless it was backed up on the SDCARD somehow? Maybe the other poster is right, and you weren't getting clean wipes with the recovery you are using (which might also explain all the issues with restoring).

I strictly use CWM recovery, but I always download ROM Manager, and use the option within that app to flash CWM. There are newer versions that it will mention after you flash (touch recovery, etc.) but I always cancel and just stick with the regular one. No issues so far...
