If I try "format data" with CWM (Syah 3.1 rc6) or stock XWLP7 Kernel it freeze.
Also tryed flashing with Odin 1.83/1.85 - XXKI3/XXLPH (with Pit+Re-Partition) - same solution - freeze during write data.img
Not sure if I had the same problem like you, but I remember not being able to format the /data partition using mkfs a while ago.
What helped me to solve the problem was using "parted" instead, which is also able to format partitions with various filesystems. It should be part of the recovery. If not, you should find it for sure in this forum. Otherwise, just ask me and I'll send it to you.
