1. I waited, and nothing changed, so I installed CWM 18.104.22.168, and tried to format /data, --> reset. No luck. Now I'm waiting for e2fsck to finish but it last really long - a lot of errors...
How can I format from adb shell /dev/block/mmcblk0p9 (/data)? using simple mke2fs shows me something about "lseek: value too large"...
2. # fdisk -l /dev/block/mmcblk0
fdisk -l /dev/block/mmcblk0
Disk /dev/block/mmcblk0: 15.7 GB, 15758000128 bytes
1 heads, 16 sectors/track, 1923584 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16 * 512 = 8192 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/block/mmcblk0p1 1 1923584 15388671+ ee EFI GPT
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary
3. I cannot mount /emmc from CWM. I can mount /cache, /system, even /data with errors (doing ls -R resets tab)
Any ideas? I did completely nothing to the tab before yesterday.
