Fix MD5 mismatch

MD5 errors are really important. But we can surely by pass this error. There are many reasons why these happens but usually the error appears when the backup folder name has been changed. 

Usually backups are stored under sdcard root/clockworkmod/backup

If these has been changed then error pops out!

How to fix this.

You will need a rooted phone and terminal emulator (download on apps page)

Enter these commands

#mount -o remount rw /sdcard
#cd /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/(****) <-see legend below
#rm nandroid.md5
#md5sum *img > nandroid.md5

****- change it to the name of you backup folder which can be found on your /clockworkmod/backup/

ex: 2012-11-

The commands will create another nanandroid.md5 file without the error

Now go back to recovery and restore.

If this won't work then backup taken may simple not be compatible with your firmware version.
