Hi,

I have this kind error after restoring nandroid backup?
Any fix advice?
I tried substractum theme, then it messed up something and everything freezes. Then i went in twrp and flashed substract recivery zip but sill everything was still strange. Then i dexided restore my 2 days old nandroid backup and I get this kind of error.
I have rooted. 5.0.4.
Right now i have this recovered nandroid backup and looks like everything is working but why this error.
I got same error when i flash kernel (structure needs cleaning), like in picture

Hey bud,
I had the same issue when restoring my nandroid backup and I fixed it by doing the following:
1. Wipe the system partition only
2. Remount it as 'ext 4'
3. Restore the system partition from your nandroid backup

If that doesn't work then try a different version of TWRP (Standard, Blu or codworkx)

Edit: I've seen some people asking some more questions surrounding this issue. For newer devices with A/B partitions I'm unsure what to do in most of these cases.

'Magellon1991' posted their findings regarding the 'vendor' and 'system' partitions.

As for anything further, this is beyond my knowledge - I simply stumbled across this initial solution by trial and error and it is likely a little outdated by now.

Best of luck!

But not at once. First, the format of the "system" and "vendor" sections, after restoring only the "system" and "vendor", and then the "image and image systems and image vendor", and then restoring the OEM, otherwise it was a bootlope without OEM

Same issue occuring for me. I have tried restoring multiple backups but same error every time. I can boot into the system by flashing the rom file and then restoring the data. But why cant i restore TWRP backup??

I did what BenisMusical recommended. Additionally I have to flash the last image. Without there was the boot loop...

Benis,
I'm a Crisis Counselor.

I need my rooted Note 9 for house visits.

I am SOL without my phone 'cause I can't navigate/make phone calls.

I am in your debt. Anything you need, I will get you...

Actually, I can't go that far, but I want to give you a heartfelt THANK YOU, and a firm, anti-COVID, handshake.

Thanks Pal.

Didn't work for me sadly. I use Treble and I just restored data, flashed the original vendor zip and system.img (Not the one from the backup - as well as magisk) and it worked again.
