FCs galore and USB storage wont allow changes
Gday, Well I have spent 3 days searching, researching, trying, flashing, rooting, rummaging and swearing... and am back to exactly where I started, so going to go out on a limb, and ask for help:
I have my sisters old Galaxy S I9000, when booted up it force closes pretty much everything, all her apps she has on it, all google related apps including Market.
Factory reset via phone (privacy menu) option, recovery menu option, and dialler code option do nothing. By that I mean they say they are working, the phone reboots, yellow text suggests everything is being formatted and wiped, and then it reboots to exactly the same state.
I have flashed various 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 firmwares, same result.
I have trie to flash custom ROMs, but can't because of the other problem; the USB storage appears to always stay unchanged no matter what I try to remove from it, or add to it (eg. zip files for installing). On my PC I can see the rive, and I can drag/drop zip files to it, I can even delete all the folders if I want, but when I disconnect the cable, the USB Storage in the phone is EXACTLY the same as it was before I connected it to the PC....
I've searched high and low, forums galore, many seem to have had one problem or another, but nobody seems to have had exactly the same problems in their entirity. Even the forum I read about fixing the 'protected' USB storage suggested flashing a patch, which is a zip file, which is impossible for me to do as I can't write to the USB storage...
Your insight/wisdom/assistance o nthis matter would be GREATLY appreciated! Cheers in anticipation..
By the way, I am definitely talking about USB storage, the internal type, not my external sd card, I have had that removed for the last day or so to avoid any confusion. I currently have XXJPY 2.2.1 on the phone if that helps bt can change it to anything else that s Odin flashable if need be.
