I have two data.ext4 files in my TWRP backup folder: the first is data.ext4.win000 and data.ext4.win001. I'm thinking this is the issue.
I have already flashed a ROM and booted, so I am out of the woods. Just wanted to know if anyone has had any success with split data files in a TWRP recovery.
Thanks for your time.
Look for TWRP-Recovery-jfltespr-126.96.36.199 seems to be the most reliable for backup and restores right now.
The 'splitting of the EXT/data is NOT the problem. That's the way twrp is compressing the images.
Also there are some ROMs that have partition problems with certain kernels, so take note of that.
I make a crap load of nandroids and switch back and forth pretty often. 188.8.131.52 has been the most reliable for me.
Once more thing I do is verify the nadroid via the AFV app. I boot to recovery, create backup (always of every partition) then boot to ROM and run the AFV app on the backup and make sure it verifies. Then I'll boot back to recovery and wipe/format and flash away according to the dev's instructions.
