fyi here are the specs :
model : GT-I9003
Android version : 2.3.7
Internal Memory : 1.87GB
SD Card : Unavailable
Baseband : I9003XXKPQ
ROM : MIUI 2.3.30
Here is the thing, i have flashed my phone about a 100 times, with various ROMS including stock XXKPE,XXKPQ (latest) and still no success
Also, the funny thing is, only 12 gb of my 16 gb external sd is usable so im guessing the 4 gb is being used internally by the phone for the default 2 + 2 gb of samsung galaxy s
on reboot to recovery, when i go to --> install from sd card, it says E: cant mount \sdcard
whereas when i go to --> install from internal sd card, it shows me all the files,folders on my external sd card
Another thing ive seen is when trying to clear cache it says :
E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p3
Now all said and done, i just wanted some sort of idea whether i should go ahead with this solution because im very sure its the same problem..ive inserted my external sd card on other samsung galaxy s and it works fine..and ive tried inserting other external sd cards onto my phone but it doesnt get mounted..
its the same problem mate... see my post here
... now my problem solved using above method.. the only thing is, every time the device restart or on from battery drained, need to configure everything back including APN for data connectivity..

i cant because there is no way to replace vold.fstab root explorer dosent run and adb cant get sdcard for replace vol.fstab anyone can help?
install any root kernel into your phone 1st.. then put it into recovery mode.. connect to pc and run android sdk... type command "adb push c:\(location of vold.fstab file in your pc) \system\etc\" and enter.. type without the " and ().. this way you will push the file from your pc into your phone and it will replace the previous one..
example : adb push c:\users\anplugged\desktop\vold.fstab /system/etc/
have a try mate.. good luck...
