Before reflashing I backed up the NVRAM partition as described in the flashing guide. Now I have a working phone, but I need to restore the backed up NVRAM partition (because I experimented with the 'Format' options in the flash tool)

Any ideas how to restore the backed up information?

Thanks

Pete

[SOLVED]

I've found the following web page that offers guidance

https://afterroot.wordpress.com/2015/07/22/...tore-nvram-bin/

It suggests editing the scatter file and setting is_download to true for the nvram section. If I do this, when I load the amended scatter file, the flash tool gives an error message. I got round this by copying the backed up NVRAM0 file to the directory containing the scatter file, and changing the `file_name` field in the nvram section of the scatter file from 'NONE' to 'NVRAM0'

Reloaded the scatter file, de-selected all the other sections and hit the 'Download' button. When the Download was complete I restarted the phone and it worked fine.
