Hi everyone,

I've been using the official LineageOS 17.1 (SM-G903F) and when I try to backup and restore a ROM from TWRP LineageOS just gets stuck in the load screen (or in some cases the Galaxy S5 Neo Boot Screen loops)

I've so far tried TWRP Versions:
3.5.0_9-0
3.4.0-0
2.8.7.0 (can not create backup)
LastStandingDroid's Unofficial Experimental TWRP (2.8.7.0)

Any ideas on what the problem could be? Are you guys able to recover TWRP backups?

I've also tried not using GApps.

Thanks for any help,
Aventurer

I guess /system cannot be restored. /data and /boot seem to restore fine, but I need to flash the LineageOS .zip along with it.

Any ideas on why? Is it a TWRP problem? I'm not using read-only mode in TWRP and I get no errors, it just bootloops.
