    nandroid exited with status 31

    found this over at mydroid world...

    I noticed many people (including myself) was getting the nandroid error 31 code...I tried this and it seem to have worked

    open terminal emulator
    type su
    then type "sync" (no quotes)
    enter

    and hopefully it works for you

    honestly, i dont know...

    I just googled and searched the solution and found the above...all i know is it seems to occur when trying to perform a nandroid advanced backup. other solutions suggested mounting and creating a nandroid folder which doesn't help most because i assume most will already have one.

    the sync action would lead me to believe that SPR is not reading the sdcard corrctly and its something with SPR...but thats at best a guess.

    Sorry i couldn't be much more of a help...im slowly learning as I go

    Spoke to soon. Error appears again and can't recreate the solution

    Update, was able to get a backup don't after a few reboot and trys. I'm not sure if this is a bad SD card...

    I ran into this issue before as well with my friends Droid. Try reseating the card. I had to do that several times, once for the rom, once for the theme, and once for the kernel. Hope it helps!

    ERROR 31:


    Turn your phone off. Pop the battery and remove SD card (blow on it like Super Nintendo if it makes you feel better). Reinsert SD card. Turn on phone normally. Wait until notification bar confirms that SD card is ready to use. Reboot into recovery and perform your backup.


    I had same issue when trying to install ROMs as well so it will work for that too.

    SD card

    I've been getting the error 31 problem ever since I changed out my old 16g SD card with the new 32g card.
    Using both the physical pulling SD card and reseating method as well as the other method mentioned using terminal emulator to run the sync command seems to work.
    I'm just wondering if the people who built SPRecovery are aware that maybe this is a size of the SD card issue? Any way to bring that to their attention for the next build?
