[Q] Super Bricked Gnote Revived But Lost Memory
Hello Dear friends,
This is Alvina Snow, a nooby nooby noob girl, who once liked to play with phones and would make fun of her buddies, carrying the stereo-typed GB versions on thier Note. I am no more interested in flashing Roms and not because i blame developers. They have always been great in thier job and i owe them for their coolest roms, but i blame myself and my hastiness in everything. Cutting the crap, let me come to the point.....
Last night, tired of the mediocre looks of Official ICS, i downloaded Paranoid Android 0.4a along with goodies and following the instructions, I opened Odin to downgrade to GB so i can install PA 0.4a safely. To my surprise, once the GB Rom installed successfully, it got stuck at bootloader, i rebooted it a few times, then i went to recovery and reset factory/ format, wiped cache and rebooted. Note stuck this time on the first screen.
Presuming that Odin install may have been faulty, i redid the Odin method and this time, the install stuck at "factoryfs.rfs". From then on, i tried for hours to make it happen, swapped roms, used kernels, wiped everything... and ultimately i got a nice super brick on my hands. the notorious mobile-cum-triangle-cum-PC sign, asking me to use recovery through kies.
researched XDA all night and finally landed on Dr. Forest's "Easy guide for repartition workaround to fix super-brick Note"
Did everything as directed. I used "standard 16 GB pit" and stable GB rom to resurrect my Note and we both came to life to my surprise, only to discover that now i have an 8.24 GB emmc space available, instead of previously held 11.4 GB something.
I have been praying for Dr. Forest and all esteemed developers and i will always be thankful to them. My questions to my learned seniors is that:-
- Is there any method, adopting which the missing 3 GB should be regained?
- Will I ever be able to regain the missing 3GB space?
- Having this notion in mind that now i have caged 3 GB of voracious malfunctioning space in my emmc, should i expect any further stability issues after revival of Note or it should work just fine.
Once again hats off to Dr. Forest and all other developers for thier compassionate assistance for us noobs. My thanks in advance for help.
