1. sirfly2fly's Avatar has been real buggy lately, lagging a lot and heating up, so i decided to do a backup and security wipe. The security wipe has been going for about 3hrs now. Does anyone have any ideas? i did a battery pull and it went right back to the spinning circle.

    just let it do its thing. Not always a good idea to pull the battery!

    Battery wipes can take quite long from what I've heard. The longest I've had was 2 hours, but I believe some people have experienced 6+. DO NOT do another battery pull. Leave it alone to avoid any unwanted software issues.

    When I did a wipe of my first Z device, I set it off before I went to bed. When I woke up in the morning, still going. When I got home from work later that day, still going. That is definitely not normal.

    I ended up taking it back. The tech zone guy was baffled by it so sent it off. A week or so later my replacement arrived.


    Never got an answer though as to the issue. Was to hard to sort, and easier to replace...

    After about 4 hours it finished, and j solved the issue of lagging and overheating...when a ever you do a restore while running a leak, delete the restored text
