It just says that it's restoring and hangs there until I force quit TiBu. I also can't backup apps, as it says "Backup failed: Insufficient free storage space".
Upon some research, many solutions around the web say that it's because the user had their backups folder pointed at /storage/emulated/0/ whereas it should be /storage/emulated/legacy/. First of all, that only applies if you're using the internal memory which I can't because I have 3gb of backups. Also, I tried that and it still didn't work to backup apps (didn't test moving some backups to that location and trying to restore).
I read in other threads that previous ROMs had problems running TiBu altogether so hopefully this is something that will be fixed in an upcoming patch but I was wondering if anyone else was having similar problems or found any workarounds.
Find 7a X9006 - ColorOS 1.2.0i build X9006_12_140530
I couldn't get TiBu to work on ColorOS 1.2 either. Although, to be honest, I didn't even try any trouble shooting. I've never had a restore fail before so I decided to try ColorOS 2.0 and TiBu worked as expected. Save yourself the hassle and switch to ColorOS 2.0 beta or, better yet, switch to an AOSP ROM. ColorOS is terrible. It looks pretty and has some neat features, but it's a buggy mess.
Update: I see you said you'd try the beta if you feel brave. I found it to be less buggy than 1.2 so give it a shot. Still sucks if you ask me.
