Stock recovery...I'm assuming. Man its been ages since I seen stock. Lol

Is there a mount sdcard option....if so. Pick it and then apply update....

I will pass this along to our stock guy...he runs stock and will be better equipped to answer you're question...I'm more of the root , flash , mod type.

What's up buddy...If you're not to busy..can you take a look at post 31..

A member has a question about recovery and I think its stock recovery. So I thought you might be able to help him out..if not, it cool. I can flash a stock recovery and look around..

Thanks...gil81

Thanks for the heads up. I've looked around and seemed to have found a sort of an answer.

So I assume you're using stock recovery and when you say "it doesn't show anything" I also assume you mean that there are no options to select...

I haven't had this error myself (kept to stock, unrooted), so I may be wrong here (and anyone, please correct me if I am)

The error you're mentioning - the E:unknown volume path from /sdcard: is most likely due to using the stock recovery.

On other devices, it means that simply, this partition doesn't exist at all, which is pretty much the case here as well.

It may be to do with the tablet having one partition for both the /data as well as the internal storage, meaning that apps, app data and files that you have - music, pictures, videos, documents etc - on the tablet are all on this one partition, thereby making up the roughly 14GB free of storage available. So the stock recovery won't be able to detect any files here.

What I assume is the way to fix this: flash CWM via Odin. This theoretically should allow you to access the zip you're trying to flash once you boot into recovery.

Good quick response superman....Lol

But I think he's using an update zip made for stock recovery...I've never seen one for cwm/twrp recovery...

Or maybe he has his terminology wrong and is indeed using a ROM zip on stock recovery...

I guess he'll let us know..

Thanks for all the help....trying to make this a success...

No worries :P

That picture's from my own tablet and I didn't even try to flash in anything. In stock recovery, when you try to select the option of "Apply update.zip from sdcard", that error and the supposedly "empty" /sdcard comes up. So it doesn't really matter what you're trying to do because you'll run into that anyway.

Usually you'd be able to see your folders and and any zips you have, but in stock revoery there's nothing.

So I'm pretty sure after you flash CWM/TWRP with Odin, you flash in the root file (there was an updated root.zip somewhere..) but I dunno, you're the root guy :P

Lmao...dude I'm a bone head...

I think the zip I uploaded for root is labeled update zip...Lol. If that's the case then a custom recovery flash will get him home. If he watched the linked qbking vid...

But on pre ICS recovery...you have an update from zip option...I just wasn't sure if the sdcard needed to be mounted...I think it does , to apply the zip....but this is all speculation on my part and from what I read. I came to this device and put ICS ota on it and never seen gingerbread stock recovery...

The update zip I'm referring to is the root zip ( for gingerbread ) update or the ICS update zip....it can be flashed from gingerbread recovery( stock ).

I wish he'd jump in...I guess I'll shoot him a pm..

I have a Galaxy S, a Gingerbread device. Just to see if the same applied I booted into stock recovery (I don't know why I stay on stock but I do, at least it has good battery), and lo and behold, all my folders and any zip files I had came up.

Hmmm. Then again, my Galaxy S has seperate partitions for /data and /sdcard, unlike the Tab 10.1 on ICS (I barely ever got to use this on Honeycomb so I have no idea how the storage partitions work on Honeycomb)
On other devices that problem's fixed by using an app and mounting the sdcard or the internal storage, you're right. The obvious problem is though that the Tab 10.1 lacks an external SD card and a seperate partition for it.
@SearchEngine, please respond either here or to @Gil81's PMs... I think its a case of needing a bit more info.
If we can find out what you're doing -whether you're using stock recovery or not and what exactly you're flahing - we may be able to diagnose the problem better.
