I've installed Ethereum Wallet on a Windows 10 machine and I am now syncing the blockchain with geth --fast --cache 1024. It seems to have downloaded practically all blocks, as eth.syncing returns

{
  currentBlock: 3439728,
  highestBlock: 3439874,
  knownStates: 7808,
  pulledStates: 3352,
  startingBlock: 3439692
}

But I'm still getting countless lines like

I0329 15:02:25.506146 eth/downloader/downloader.go:966] imported   4 state entries in 213.959ms: processed 9882, pending at least 12191

and balance still does not show even if the transaction happened in an already processed block. So:

  • I assume the balance does not show because the blockchain "states" are still unsynced. Is this correct?
  • What are these "state entries" and how do they relate to a block?
  • How long will the sync take (already going on for one day)? At least, am I at 1%, 50% or 99%?

Thank you in advance.

Yes

I had exactly your problem. Syncing stopped progress when I reached few hundreds last blocks. Finally I found that problem is my computer timing and I should solve that with enabling network time synchronization! You can follow this guide to enable it on Windows 10.
