    Can someone suggest WHY SP Recovery will not perform a backup of my current state? I'm trying to backup before installing Dark Edge. I've just installed BETA] Succulent-Desire-v-5.0-RC2. Seems to be a SWEEET ROM but cant backup.

    Recovery gets about a third of the way through DUMPING SYSTEM .tar and freezes there. Anyone else ever experience this? How'd you solve it?

    I DID set a Backup name. Called it "preedge". No capitals, no spaces. I Just don't get it. I'm guessing this has never happened to anyone else?

    This is exactly what I was going to ask.

    This also started happening to me today. When I attempt to create a backup it either freezes at the "attempting nandroid backup" or it freezes at some other random phase of the backup process. I even downloaded RM just to re-flash SPR to see if that would work but still no. Figure it must be something with the ROM but now I am afraid to restore to an earlier ROM and have it freeze during that process.

    Currently running BB 1.1. Very odd.
