Default E:cant mount SD, cant write system.img

Hi,

my NSdoesnt boot and I cant flash another ROM because my NS cant mount SD anymore, so I tryed to restore it back to stock and flash the .imgs with fastboot. Boot.img, recovery.img, userdata.img, without problems, but the system.img gives me the message "write failed" or something. Tryed it multiple times with the Gingerbread system.img, and ICS system.img, same problem.

I can boot into recovery, but the phone doesnt recognize the SD and also the system partition.


Any solutions?


Sorry for my english.

Tried 2 different CMW Recoveries, it's not a recovery problem. My System and SD storage is corrupt or something, I think.

It can't be all that corrupt as you are able to install boot loader and recovery. Try and adb sideload CyanogenMod 10.1. Once you got a booting phone, things tend to play nicely.

Just tried the adb sideload method.

"Installing update..." for 5 Minutes now. I think it cant write on /system.

I've also tried to erase /system partition via fastboot it gives me also the "failed" message.

I've had a similar experience when installing stock ROMs after installing cwm and cm 10. Can you guys not even install cm10?
