Default [Q] I9300 error mounting /system CWM

Recently, due to the laggy 4.3 stupid stock rom, i decided to factory reset and install cwm to flash paranoid android. But every time I mount /system it says "error mounting /system". All the other thinngs like /efs, /sdcard... mount without any problem. I tried to odin a fresh 4.3 stock rom, but no use. Try with or without root, same result. I'm using CWm touch latest 6.0.4.6. Now I'm able to use the phone in stock rom with no problem, but I want to install pa... Anyone haev a solution? Thanks in advance

Do you mean that you tried to flash a stock firmware through Odin and failed?
What errors did it give?

No I'm not sure what's the problem, since I've never experienced or seen this kind of error.
Try tomorrow and get back to us with the results.

YES! TWRP did the trick. Wonder why CWM fail though... Tks for all your support
