Here's the story: I am dumb, I have learned it the hard way. I have tried loading one of the JB ROMs, I've seen something about "slot 1" and ignored it.
I have Safestrap 2.0, it doesn't have slots.
I did the full backup.
I did the formats.
I used the .zip.
The rom didn't boot, black screen.
I wanted to switch back to non-safe
"error while restoring /data" after 5+ (10?) minutes... not good, I thought.
I will restore the backup to the safe ROM, i thought, I will have my stuff back!
"error while restoring /data". ****.
Maybe not enough external sdcard (only one I could touch) space? I made some.
Still the same.
It stayed in the safe mode so I flashed a clean 4.0.4 ROM (deodexed stock), and got it working...
But I want my data back...
I tried switching back to unsafe after freeing some internal space, but still, "error while restoring /data"
Now I'm on a empty ROM-restore hybrid that has no apps. I see my SMS, and desktop icons (most of them), but it doesn't even have Play Store ("app not installed") so I'm kinda ****ed.
How to get my data back if neither unsafe mode copy nor unsafe mode backup restores?
