I recently took a full backup of my HTC One M8 and thought all was well. I tried to flash a Marshmellow rom on it but it failed (i suspect this had to do with the fact I was on KitKat 4.4.2).
So naturally I attempted to restore the backup I took but I keep getting 'extractTarFork() process ended with ERROR: 255'
I have attempted the tutorial found here -- https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-15953.html -- but this solution does not work for me
I do have a backup from 2014 I am currently using but of course all my data is not current or accurate. I tried to browse the backup in Titanium Backup and while it recognizes the backup, there is nothing listed under apps + data or data only.
I also tried to extract the backup via Cygwin but it also fails to extract the data.
What solutions have people tried to successfully restore the data partition or be able to browse it in Titanium Backup?
