Default i9300 Dead?

*figured it out myself. Data format in teamwin recovery did the trick

Hi Guys,

After trying to fix my i9300 that was having radom freezes with Fstrim and the Dummy File Generator my phone died.

It doesn't boot past the sgs3 logo, but i am still able to boot recovery. I recovery i can see that /data cannot be mounted. Does that mean that my internal memory is now completely broken?

with regards,

Joost

I think he means he formatted is data partition with Twrp recovery (you can do this with any recovery)....Basicly a factory reset which wipes your data partition (so if you don't want to lose anything back it up).

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

That is indeed what I meant. The weird thing was that I was not able to do a factory reset and was not able to mount the data partition. Only going into your recovery and selecting format -> data partition worked. I can add that the phone is also not experiencing any of the freezes I experienced prior to this incident.
