Yesterday I was stuck in this awkward situation where my Moto G with Cyanogenmod 12.1 got stuck in the boot animation after recent restart. It was working fine for a month or two before that.
Based on my limited knowledge and friend's suggestion I decided that simply factory resetting and reinstalling the OS through the custom recovery will work fine and keep my media as well (and it did). The thing is I really wanted to keep some of my app data but backup feature through
adb wouldn't work because as I understood you need to confirm it on your phone which was bricked at the time.
I then pulled the data folder with all the app data into my pc and proceeded.
The thing is I have no idea how to restore it now, I could have screwed up somewhere. Pasting what I saved up back into my phone won't do anything.
How can I restore my app data now?
