    Try it again and see if there's an error or anything. Might say installation aborted or something like that.

    Shouldn't matter. Are you using clockwork recovery by any chance?

    Hey now don't get sassy lol

    Can't see why it wouldn't work. Do your other backups work?

    Are you choosing a ROM or just performing restore? Just looked and his guide doesn't mention choosing a ROM.
