    I had created a nandroid backup of my note 2(GT n7100) when it was running on official v.4.1 and then updated to v.4.4 unofficial.
    Now when I want to restore my backup, I cannot do it as I get the message of md5 mismatch error.
    Yet my internal storage is 9.1 GB used and 1.3 GB free, that I had during my previous version, and I cannot see any aaps or any other stuff that I had in my phone. The internal storage when seen from file explorer doesn’t show anything except the default folders.
    Please reply and tell me what to do
