Is it possible to restore a ClockWorkMod backup to an Android emulator using a PC?

I'm leaning towards no. A nandroid backup can't be used on a different phone because of the difference in hardware. And since the emulators included in the SDK are going to emulate a specific hardware set, I doubt it would work right. – Stephen Schrauger Nov 2 '12 at 13:50
You'd have to make the backup from the emulator. – Matthew Read Nov 2 '12 at 17:00

No. You can however, try to restore parts of it using Titanium Backup. It allows you to select apps to restore - that way you can get back the data.
