Default twrp restoring data for quite some time now

Title says it all, trying to restore a nandroid of cleanrom1.1 with hk mod and art and it has been on restoring data for about 20 mins. Any suggestion? Pretty terrified to leave recovery without a removable battery

Anybody up? A booting phone would come in handy tomorrow. After trying to install gpe with some troubles, I decided I wanted to go back to cleanrom with a backup. The restore has been stuck on restoring data for a while. The system successfully restored, so I want to know a few things.

Can I leave recovery while stuck at the restore screen?

Can my system boot with just a restored system not data?

Can I somehow get out and back into recovery to clean install cleanrom?
If I help any one any where at any time, please let me know by clicking thanks!

I think I got it. Held power and vol up followed by power down and got into recovery again eventually, flashed per usual and its optimizing apps right now. Phew. On the bright side I'm entirely de sensitized with this phone after this brief heart attack

The latest TWRP is known to not restore Nandroids on this phone. Surprised you got it to work. Nowadays I don't Nandroid at all, I just use Titanium Backup. I know that method isn't perfect, but with Nandroid broken, it's what I got.

Like you discovered, devices with no removable battery have a virtual battery pull function that works independently of the phone's other functions. It's kind of like a kill switch.

It's always fun dealing with these issues, isn't it? Samsung phones, for all their faults, are pretty damn easy to work with. HTC... I'm finding, not so much, though when they do have a good ROM in them, they are some of the best phones out there.

Lastly, you're three versions out on CleanROM as of yesterday. I'm using 1.3 and once I get my USB cable, I'm updating to 1.4. H/K is a must.

You should use the twrp that buckmarble has posted. Its flawless. I tested it out good...it makes sense backups an restores them in under 130 seconds. Well for me it does everytime..j had trouble like you with the offical twrp.

Yes, I've heard; thank you.

I wonder if TWRP has abandoned the M8. Or maybe they're waiting on something (4.4.3 update?). I don't know.

130 seconds? When I was on the Galaxy S3 250-300 seconds backups/restores were common. I get that we have two more cores, but has disk write speed really gotten that much better? Depending on your ROM, you're writing 1-3GB to the SD card, and other disk operations are happening as well. I've had a few rogue 2 minute restores, but I expect closer to 4. Then again maybe you have a leaner setup. I'm strictly Sense only as long as H/K is. No H/K in AOSP means no AOSP for me until that changes.

Here is one I just made 5 mins ago just to show you. I backed up sense ROM 3.4 gigs as you can see an there is the 130 second backup. Check out the pic...also I restore it at 93 seconds but rebooted out of habit before I could take my pic of that lol....he did add his own kernel maybe that is what made it faster. Who knows but like I said I'm in the 130 range every time.....

Hello! I downloaded the recovery posted by buckmarble, currently using twrp. Earlier I thought I saw a thread explaining how to switch recoveries (easily) Now I can't find it anywhere, of course, right? Do u or anyone else know where I can get this info?

Thanks in Advance

Its simple...just place your new twrp.IMG file in your fastboot folder. Then reboot to bootloader an plug phone into PC once in bootloader fastboot flash your recovery.IMG file
Type
Fastboot flash recovery nameofyour file.IMG
Hit enter an it will flash your new twrp you r trying to use..

You have working fastboot on your PC correct?
