Tonight I was playing around and decided to reset all to default. No more DataOnExt. Turned on md5 and checked /boot /data (userdata), sd-ext.. Just copy it all, I don't care what it is.
Backup started and got to sd-ext when twrp just restarted itself - back to the splash screen.
The log shows backup starting and poof! I didn't try to fix permissions and had the xml verification unchecked.
On another topic, in dataonext mode twrp seems to verify the xml file but re-verification at backup time failed. Seems there is a difference in the code someplace. And, the backup directory is created before the check - remains empty when the check fails.
If it should hp the log is at http://db.tt/FCBHFbtA.
Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have space left on their sd card ... (via Tapatalk)
