Was charging my phone yesterday went to unplug and phone stuck at splash screen, pulled battery and left for a while on re-insert splash screen appears straight away. Pulled battery overnight and same thing happened.

Phone has been rooted and has latest (i think) CWM (v6.0.4.7) on it, was running CyanogenMod1! which updated yesterday to latest version (nightly 20140311 i think). I can get into recovery but can't install the rom i have on the phone just get the following messages:

E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
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 open /cache/recovery/last_log
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_install
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/last_install

Does anyone have any idea how if i can get a working rom back onto the phone
Thanks in Advance

I had a similar thing when I was changing between 4.3 and 4.4.2 in which my recovery struggled to mount storage after the system was flashed. In the end I had to flash an old version of Philz CWM, or alternatively flash TWRP and mess about with the settings as where it looked for files (something like that) I also found hat only zips on the internal card flashed for a while...

You may have to either:
1) Push the files to the internal card using ADB
2) Try various recoveries with various ROMS till you get on to sit nicely on your system
3) Or as a last option just reflash your phone with a stock rom through ODIN just to get it up and running, before reflashing a recovery and root using CF-AutoRoot and/or ODIN
