    Is it possible to recover game data from nandroid backup?

    I started this conversation in the TF-300T (here: Is it possible to pull data from a nandroid backup made on a me301t onto a tf300t?) as at the time that is the device I was attempting to recover to. Since then I have sold the TF-300T and bought a ME301T.

    So, just to reiterate, I am attempting to recover game data from a nandroid backup that I made last October. I can "see" the recovery file (progress) but if I go to restore the whole thing I get an error message during the process and get stuck on the boot (image of robot winking at me). I see that when I select "recover" in twrp and select the nandroid from October, I am presented with two check boxes; one data and the other apps? I'll have to run through the process again tonight to make sure of the details.

    Right now I have my ME301T with the lastest Omnirom and TWRP custom recovery. I believe that these are what was on the previous ME301T from which I created the October nandroid. I've reinstalled the game, and everything seems to be working well. Of course I also created a nandroid of the "new" ME301T as soon as I was done installing the custom rom. It would be great to get that game data back if possible.

    OK, a little more info. I attempted to restore just the data from the October nandroid and it failed. In TWRP, when I select Restore, and select the October nandroid, I am presented the choice of restoring Data and/or Boot. I've tried both now and both end in error. I get the following text on the tablet.

    Restoring data...

    E: extractTarFork() process ended with ERROR=255

    Found this thread over at xda on the error message. https://forum.xda-developers.com/nex...or255-t3302462 Maybe it will give me the key

    Well, I think you're better off booting your computer to a Linux live-CD and extracting the data using that. Then simp;y copy over to the tablet. Only problem is finding the exact data you need. But as pointed out in the other thread, flashing the entire /data partition is probably a bad idea iven if you can get it to work.

    well, I purchased the pro version of titanium backup and it installed the game data no sweat. Nice to also support the dev for the software as I've used TB for a long time now.

    Thanks to both of you for responding to my dilemma. On to the next fire

    Update: Ugh, my son is telling me that the tablet is behaving erratically playing game for which I restored the data. I may just uninstall and reinstall the game w/o restoring the data and he can just deal with the lost data. Darn, thought I had this licked.
