    Did you rename the backup?

    This probably means nothing. I don't have any backups on my Bionic, but I have multiple on 2 Droid X's. All of them have the same files as you do, but the one's with the ext do not have the tar thereafter. If you've not fxz'd or anything, and am still looking for options, I'll make a backup via cwm on my Bionic and see what is inside that file. Again, I'm not sure having the tar at the end has anything to do with it. Meaning I don't know if you can just edit those 3 files and it can be restored afterwards.

    Edit: Just went and made backup on Bionic with from what I understand is a modified bootstrap-BP tools version. On rooted 232. When I checked my cwm folder, the backup did NOT have the tar extension on the end. Not sure if you used the wrong bootstrap, or if you can just delete the tar on those 3 folders and try to restore it and see what happens. Could cause you to have to fxz. Just not knowledgeable enough to give you any better options.

    i am running a droid bionic with the leaked .232 ics update, the nandroid is from my other phone since this new one is a replacemnt. im using bionic bootstrap that you get from the market. does it maybe have to do with the cwm version? im just so lost on how to recover everything, all my contacts and everything are in that backup

    I'm using the bootstrap - BPTools version. It's in another thread here. As far as restoring nandroid transferred from another phone, I've never done that before, so I'd not be able to offer any advice. Hopefully someone can provide some. I do have 2 nandroids, and neither have the tar ext.

    Just found this thread because I had the same problem and the fix was to remove the spacing in the renamed file. I had changed the restore folders' names so that I could keep better track of what they were and was getting the md5 error. I removed the spacing, voila! Just putting this out there for anyone else in need.
