Hey folks,

have a huge problem here. I think i erased all the data of my girlfriend's phone -.-

I just wanted to clear her phone by setting it up with a custom stock rom withput bloatware.

I started to unlock the bootloader and flash a new recovery because i wanted to do a nandroid backup and use titanium to backup her data. But the problem started here. Her phone had the 4.4.2 OTA update --> HBoot 2.22 but I flashed TWRP 2.7.0.0 instead of 2.7.0.5 because i didn't know the fact that the partition layout changed. After flashing the recovery the internal sd card couldnt be found and twrp said "no OS installed" when i tried to reboot to the system. Well, the phone did boot to the system, but i think it made a background factory reset i didn't want to do ...

So now i had a clear System running, no apps, no contacts, nothing. At this point I didn't look at the sd card if the data there is erased, too.
I thought, when i flash a recovery which finds the sd card, maybe the system will be restored as before this procedure. So i flashed twrp 2.6.3.0 but again, no sd card. After that i tried cwm 6.0.3.6 (because i didnt know that there was a 6.0.4.7 ...) and cwm accepted the card. So i booted again into system but still there was a clear stock rom, with ... nothing.

THEN I looked into the sd card and ... nothing. Empty, everything got deleted, only the new made folders where there. No Pictures, no Music, nothing.

My girlfriend gonna kill me ...

I tried to rescue the data from the sd card, but different apps found nothing then the data, that is already on the sd card. No old pictures or old music. Thanks to MTP, i can't run a datarescue at my pc (or can i?).

Do you have any idea what i can do now? Is there any chance of getting the data from the sd card back? Or better, getting the old app data back?

Please help me guys, you are my last hope.

greetings,
patrick
