Default No System installed

Hello everbody!
At first, my English isn't very well, so sorry for that.

My Problem:
I wanted to install CM 11 on my Ace I (GT-S5830i), but this extremly failed. To keep it short, i haven't any OS on my device now, but I can enter the CWM (version 6.0.1.2)

What I have done:
Install CWM
wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition (but in the Stock recovery)
format /system (in CWM)

Now I get the error message:
E: can't mount Cache/recovery/log

I tried to install CM 11 (for the Ace I (GT-S5830i) for sure)
Install zip from sdcard

but I get these Messages:

Opening update package...
Installing update...
This package is for "cooperve.GT-S5830i, gt-5830i devices; this is a "".
E:Error in /sdcard/cm-11...
(Status 7)
Install aborted.
E: can't mount Cache/recovery/log
E: can't open Cache/recovery/log
E: can't mount Cache/recovery/last_log
E: can't openCache/recovery/last_log


I was so silly and didn't make a backup.

When I try to start the device, only the gt-5830i-Logo appears, of course, ther is no OS installed.
So what can I do? Is there any chance to install an OS?

I also tried to install the Stock Firmware with Odin; result failed.



Thanks!

Edit:
Odin works, now I have the Stock Firmware, but I can't flash CM 11;
Error Message;
E: can't mount Cache/recovery/log

This error is not serious, it just means, that it cannot create log files, because of the missing cache partition.
I also got this error when using the "on-the-fly" CWM.

If you install a ROM (which has a kernel), then CWM gets installed to the recovery/kernel partition, then you have a "rock stable" CWM.
Hopefully without errors. But for now, you can just ignore this error.

On some devices the device info in the properties is empty, and therefore the updater-script thinks, the device is not supported.
If you know exactly that your device is supported, you can delete the first lines of the updater-script.

Steps
  • Open the *.zip with WinRAR or similar
  • Go to META-INF\com\google\android
  • Extract the updater-script (Drag & Drop), don't close WinRAR
  • Open the updater-script with your favorite text editor (i.e. notepad++)
  • Delete the first lines containing "assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "your_device" || getprop(...) == "...");"
  • This line can be on multiple lines, so be sure to delete the complete "assert" statement
  • Drag & Drop the modified updater-script into WinRAR (same folder as before)
  • Optionally sign the *.zip
  • Install it with CWM
  • Be sure what you are doing (at your own risk)

If it worked, feel free to hit Thanks

Thank you for your efforts, I really appreciate it, but I solved the Problem.

As I said, now I have the Sotck Firmware (thanks Odin ^^).
I flashed CWM again with Odin, and tada, I could install CM 11, without any Problems.

Yeah, flashing the CWM with Odin is another great solution.
Then you have a working CWM out of the box, and the device properties are setted correctly.

I'm glad it's working now

When you press the combo for download mod the black screen comes up right ? At that time connect your phone to PC an turn on Odin & last press volume up that's it your phone will be get connected.
