Ok i think something went wrong while trying to factor y restore muy s4, cause i restored it but when i went to muy internal storage al previos files were still there. So when i try reseting it through the phone settings the recovery hangs so i rebooted into recovery and wiped cache, dalvik cache, internal storage, then factor y gestores and nos muy phone is stuck at the tmobile boot screen and gets súper hoy and the les is ON BLUE al the time

The files were supposed to be there.. If you have custom recovery reflash your ROM, or if you don't then reflash the firmware with Odin.. Or flash a custom recovery with odin and then the ROM

damn man, im so tired of twrp this is so far the crappiest recovery ive seen cause the date and time are impossible to change to an accurate one cause even when you select the timezone it is not your time. also the date when you do a nandroid backup the year is all wrong.
when i recently had the accident that the phone didnt wanna boot i tried restoring from backup but no success, also when you go to the phone settings and try to factory restore the phone through the regular phone settings, it reboots the phone into the twrp recovery then it hangs and start getting HOT and never does anything. also lts say you had a folder labeled "Old Folder" on your internal sdcard/ device storage, if you do a factory restore from the recovery which is supposed to wipe the user data from the internal partition once the phone reboots and open the file manager of choice you will find that all the previous junk is still there including the "Old Folder".
thats my opinion, why i dont like this twrp recovery and the way its implemented into the SGS4.
if you or anyone can please redirect me to a Good, stable, usable, and fully working custom recovery up to date and for the Tmo US SGS4, then please fell free to give me a hand.
and im appologize to the developer of this recovery but thats my opion and why i dislike it cause i already hada bad experience with it.

Thanks in advanced and sorry again!!!

To wipe internal data in twrp you select wipe data or internal SD.. That's how it should be.. and for the dates and names, you can rename it to whatever you want so you can put the date yourself.. I actually like twrp.. For busybox try busybox on rail in the playstore
