Super slow TWRP recovery. Is this normal?

    Hey, guys and gals. I'm a bit new to this phone, even though I've had it for awhile now, but I'm having an issue with TWRP on my Avant.

    On multiple occasions now, I have launched a restore only to find it taking literally 2 to 3 hours to complete. I'm running the stock ROM, rooted with TWRP installed. Things run nice and speedy until around 80% or so, then it crawls all the way up to 100%. Incidentally, on my last few backups, TWRP mysteriously hasn't even backed up my data partition, so the recovery was borked regardless.

    Coming from the ZTE Warp (hold your laughter, please :p) I am used to doing a complete system restore in a fairly short amount of time. I realize the Avant is a much more capable device with comparatively increased storage, so maybe that's just how it is on this one. But it still seems odd to me for a restore to take this long.

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Maybe you should try to format everything by flashing back to stock using odin, then flashing root then twrp afterwards which can definitely solve ur problem you're having, or you could flash the stock rom made by masterchief84 in twrp to get back to stock that way, it's not guaranteed to work tho unless using a certain rom, which is flashable by odin, you could try anyway tho. But I'd recommend that you use odin, flash root and twrp and make a fresh new backup. you could even try to just reflash twrp to see and also I believe cwm was made for this too, lemme know what you'd like to do if u would like some assistance, I've been bricked my avant by trying to install ubuntu touch, rebooted straight into odin mode, couldn't even use twrp, so I've been there in messed up situations and know how to get out

    Thanks for the offer! I wonder if it was a simple "running out of space" issue. I freed up a ton of room on my storage and it runs great now. Coincidence? You decide... :)
