Synopsis of Issue: Currently I have several backups that do not show an error resoring but for some reason will not boot. Everytime I boot the device from a backup it goes into the WIleyfox boot screen and stays like that.
Background Information: I own a Wileyfox Swift 2x, unrooted and bootloader unlocked. TWRP 3.1.1 is installed. I upgraded the system to Nougat 7.1 [SW46-WF-MARMITE-7.1-TOS089A-RECOVERY[NOUGAT] and everything seemed to function properly albeit with those annoying corruption startup screens. However for some reason I just coudnt get it to ROOT. I took a full backup. So I decided to install Lineage 14.1 [lineage-14.1-20171002-nightly-crackling-signed] with open-gapps. After a wipe I installed Lineage but it woudnt boot despite fixing error7 issue. ...I moved on>>>
I next tried to install Cynogenmod 13.1 [SW33-WF-MARMITE-CM-13.1.5-ZNH2KAS7EB-RECOVERY] with open-gapps and succeeded but later realised there was an issue with ROOTing and phonecall recorder - anyway I needed a working phone so attempted to restore Nougat 7.1 (above) after backing up Cynogenmod 13.1.
This is when i realised that none of my backups would restore. The phone will not boot and all I am left with is the Wileyfox boot screen. I tried restoring with and without system image, & only restoring with boot, system & data - I have performed all of these after performing the standard wipes but it remains the same.
Help: Can anyone help me get my phone into working order so that I can restore my backups and boot into them?
