    Backup won't restore!

    I installed the new JB 4.2.1, but before I did any of this I used the Samsung Galaxy Nexus tool kit to do a full backup of my device. I backed up the device, verified it was backed up in the toolkits backup folder, but now when I boot into recovery mode and restore my backup, 4.2.1 keeps coming backup, even though it says restore sucessfull... If I would have backed up my apps I wouldn't really care, cause I want to stay on this ROM, but I wanted to restore my backup to backup my apps then re-flash to 4.2.1. Has this happened to anyone else or anything I can do at this point?

    Re: Backup won't restore!

    I'm having a hard time figuring out what you did and what you're trying to do.

    You did a system backup on 4.2 then installed 4.2.1, and then tried to restore your backup from before the update? And what's going on after that?

    Nvm. I got past that part. I'm at the point now, I have booted into two seperate roms successfully. But both roms didn't have access to the play store? Can you not download apps or get into the play store/market on custom roms?

    You can use Market on custom ROMs. What do you mean when you say it doesn't have access, exactly?

    You have to flash GAPPS to get the market; most roms have the gapps available as a download right next to the ROM. Flash it in recovery just like you did the rom.

    I was reading about flashing GAPPS. I downloaded the paranoid Android Build 4.2.x but didnt' see anything for Google apps. Anywhere I can just get GAPPS?

    HA! I did it. After muddling around on Youtube, I found a link to the current GAPPS for the Eclipse ROM. Re-flashed the rom, installed GAPPS, and now I got my phone and play store back! Thanks guys for all your help. I've learned so much being on this forum in one week its insane. Props for this site!!! A+++ I'll def be staying around here, seems like a great and helpful community.
