    That looks like the Security Wipe screen and it can take a really long time to complete.

    Depends on how much you had in your phone. Mike take about 50 minutes. And that's with everything deleted from the phone (after running an autoloader).

    Some folks have said the security wipe (which may be part of what you are doing) can take a number of hours. Go to sleep and see if it is finished in the morning. If not finished you may have to take additional steps that others will suggest.

    Do NOT freak out and do a battery pull. Let it do its thing. A battery pull while the phone is ON is never good even though it's being touted as an elixir for everything. Just let it run its course.

    Op it's been 9 hours since my last comment. If it's still in a wipe them your phone is probably messed up. So has it finished yet?

    I think folks have said that you can sometimes use Sachesi to restore even a Link backup but I'm not certain. There is a thread on Sachesi in the OS beta or leak subforum. You might also ask there. Good luck

    Yeah Sachesi is your best bet man. Or Darcys tools
