This is where your /data partition got corrupted. The data wipe in ICS-based CWM.

ODIN OneClick is just serving as the messenger to tell you your /data partition is corrupted. You could have used CWM, ODIN, ODIN OneClick, etc. They would all tell you the same thing. The EMMC memory is actually damaged, it isn't just a partition data problem.

It is unfortunate to have the issue with ICS-based kernels and custom recovery, but that is why all the threads stress using GB-based kernels with custom recovery to do your flashing.

Lesson learned. At least you work for Sprint and can probably get things resolved with less hassle.

Yeah lesson learned. I just did the repair ticket on it and will have one on tuesday.

When the new one comes i will go straight to ICS build 31, and not even mess with anything else.

Its just amazing how we cant figure out a way to format/partition the currupted /data.

It isn't a format issue.

The hardware emmc memory is damaged.

JTAG bitblasting would have overwrote everything if it was fixable. That is failing in this case.

So basically you are asking why we can't reformat a hard drive that crashed and make it work.

You are doing what's right. I had to flash the one click Odin 3 times to get out of a boot loop after trying to restore a GB ROM MD5 from a ICS kernel. Learned the hard way. But if you can get to DL mode, you can usually fix it. After the third time i was able to get into standard Android recovery and do a factory data reset. Then flashed the rom again and it booted right up. I was lucky though. Hope it works out.

Your /data partition is dead. Formatting/ wiping from ICS recovery is VERY BAD, it makes bricks.... time to use insurance/TEP... sfhubs post on this page applies to you as well...
