Hi. I was on a plane last night after the longest week ever on a trip.

I have a perfectly functioning nexus 10. I downloaded a flashable zip of clockwork touch recovery instead of the non touch one I was using.

Stupidly I flashed it and rebooted and ever since I get the gallery error of now external storage. Google play doesn't work either.

In setting the nexus knows I have 13gb available and I get no error messages when I boot into recovery.

A pain in the butt for sure and I am not sure how to undo my stupidity.

Re: External storage error
I tried reflashing. I tried fastboot -w. I tried a few other things but to no avail.

I'd prefer to just blast the entire partition structure and start over

Re: External storage error
I'll redo the boot loader tomorrow. Maybe flash the Ubuntu preview then back.

Thoughts?

Re: External storage error
So far no luck. I've relocked and unlocked. Changed recoveries. Installed ROM after ROM and still same error. I'm completely at a loss

Anyone have any ideas?

Did you try fix permissions in recovery?It's worth a shot.
I dunno why flashing any version of CWM would cause this though.

Re: External storage error
I did yes sir. I tried 100 million things. In the storage section of settongs the tablet knew it was a 16gb. But just wouldn't let it be mountable or usable.

Re: External storage error
Its almost like it doesn't know its partition size or where it is.

I am having the same issue, not able to access Google play or the internal storage even after reinstalling to factory image many times. Have you got it resolved from Samsung. Please update

Hi. Sorry for the delay.

Sadly I contacted Samsung about it and it was officially broken. Happily Samsung repaired it under warranty for me. It was the motherboard that died.
