Hello,
for some reason in TWRP I can't fix permissions. When I have it create a backup it fails at the point where it tries to create a folder. In the file manager I can't even rename a folder.

I'm running a CyanogenMod monthly from about 3-4 months ago, and have the latest TWRP version.

Sounds strange, assuming everything else works fine. Not sure, but try updating the ROM?

Yeah, but I'd like to do a backup before I update the ROM.

I wonder if your /sdcard got write protection somehow...I thought I saw @osm0sis had a flashable zip for fixing that...apologies if I'm mistaken and sorry I'm not certain where to find this zip

Could be. But why would it only apply in TWRP? When the phone has booted everything works fine. Only in recovery do I run into problems (which makes me scared of flashing a newer ROM too...).

It should make a difference booted as well, so that's odd.

Easiest thing: Try my sdcard fix permissions zip. Might work anyway. http://v.ht/osm0

More annoying: adb pull everything (my adbsync sdcard Backup might make that easy for you), format data, push it all back then run my sdcard fix permissions zip.

I couldn't flash the zip. It failed.

No encryption.

wow. My phone is trying to screw me. Again and again and again. I've tried wiping the sdcard, didn't work. Had to factory reset it. Now that part was ok. Used TitaniumBackup to restore my phone. Reboot... and it was stuck at the boot screen.

Had to factory reset again, this time only let TitaniumBackup install my apps and their settings. Have to set up the system itself again.

Since I am using a VPN I need to lock the screen with a PIN (I hate that, but oh well... Android forces me). After I have set up the VPN, everything was working fine, at some point my phone crashed. And after it started again, I could not enter the PIN code anymore. I was locked out of my phone. The phone still displayed that I pressed a number, but no number did appear. Aaaand factory reset, AGAIN!

Really? What the hell is wrong? I'm worried it might be a hardware problem. The USB port is not working properly anymore, most of the time, and I'm afraid the built in memory is gone. Oh how I hate that. My HTC had the SD card die, but replacing it fixed it. I have a LG with fixed built in storage, where the memory died. Since I was overseas for a couple of months, and LG refuses to fix phones outside of the country it was bought, I had a brick for a few months. And now it seems to have hit my Galaxy Nexus. Yay. Who thought fixed built in storage was a good idea?
