Question [Q] Bricked/bootloop/no -recovery/ odin cant read file error, HELP?

Hi,

Ive been trying to get this phone working for about 2 days straight now. Tried all kinds of flash methods and so on.
But as of now, im officially stuck, and i dont know what to do.

I have this SGS i9000 with almost certain a broken internal SD (not sure, this is what i have tried to fix by flashing different roms/bootloaders/pit files,U name it)
I'm now at a point that only download mode is available and when trying to acces any recovery (original or CWM) i get the nice brick screen(phone --- ! ---- pc picuture)

Any Help would be apreciated.
Sorry for my bad english, im from Holland.

I don't know the original firmware or anything, i got this phone with bootloop error from a friend.

Thank you for all your help...

[EDIT1]


I am able to enter the Original recovery now, but a lot of errors are on the screen:
Do note that, there is NO simcard and NO External SD-Card in the phone present!

The errors in normal recovery are:

- e:failed to mount /data (file exists)
- e:delete_data_files: cant mount /data your storage not prepared yet, please use UI menu for format and reboot actions

Updating filesystem...
verifying the filesystem, pls wait
already updated filesystem, finished
Succesfully updated filesystem

wiping cache...
formatting /cache...
Cache whipe failed
applying multi csc
installing multi csc
aplied the csc code ''kor''
succesfully aplied multi csc

when you get this (phone --- ! ---- pc picuture), you need to re-flash the correct kernel or correct ROM as its stuck in incomplete flashing.

when you get this cant mount /data your storage not prepared yet you may have mp3/junk file stuck in data and causing the issue, so remove Ext SD card, remove sim card before flashing dbdata.rfs file from here

IF that did not resolve it , flash a rescue kit from above link used for unbricking. i9000

Important

make sure your unit is i9000 and not a variant of i9000
charge your phone fully before flashing

Thank you for your reply,

I checked via Imei number what type of i9000 it is and its a i9000.

The phone is without a sim and external sd card.

As of this point a flashed other stuff and i now get failed to mount sdcard (file exists)
copy dbdata media: cant mount sdcard
please use ui.. bla bla...

media files copy failed.

Apllying Multi CSC
Cant acces system csc/kor/system.
Succesfully applied multi csc.

Is there a way to figure out what the correct rom should be? or is there like any 'universal' rom that would work on all i9000 phones?

I read your rescue page, and tried the one click jar file inside your resque kit and also via Odin but still i keep getting errors.

The original problem (when i first got the phone) is a couple of bootloops and eventually it would boot into android.
Whipe of data and cache would solve the problem but it got worse and eventually it resulted into a bootloop from which he booted into android after about an hour or so...

I though i had the right kernel/rom.. and so on...
I did flash a speedymod kernel which booted right into android and with sdcard function.
But it would give errors and bootloop and crash diverse apps (system apps)

I have rooted diverse types of phones before so i am not a complete noob in this area...

Any help on how to continue?

Thnx

[EDIT1]

After flashing dbdata i still keep the same error.

The rescue kit from ebase the download link of the pdf isn''t working.
Any help on that?
I will try all rescue kits available...
and let u know what it does(little hope but)

[EDIT2]
EZBase rescue kit gave me the following errors:

failed to mount sdcard (file exists)
copy dbdatamedia cant mount sdcard
please us ui bla bla bla

format volume rfs format failed on dev block mmcblk0p2

data whipe failed

Multi CSC
Cant acces /system csc kor system

Trying the other EZBASE reqovery now (CF-root and Semphore)

[EDIT3]

Same as in edit 2

[EDIT4]

Gbflashkit gives the following result,

media files copy failed (unable to read above that because normal recovery menu is displayed on top of it)

failed to mount data (file exists)
delete data files cant mount data
please use UI bla bla bla

Updating file system goes correct

wiping cache
formatting cache
cache wipe failed


applying multi csc goes correct!

I already tried de SGS resque kit but it also failed...

Any help ?

[EDIT5]

Did a whipe cache partiton and data/fact reset...
Now when booting into normal rescue i get this:

Copy media files

failed to mount /sdcard (file existst)
copy dbdata media cant mount sdcard
please use UI bla bla

CSC installation goes succesfully

After flasing dbdata again the error stays the same

this would be the clue as to one of the problem you may be having, basically at some point the phone must have been formatted to ext 4, as such samsung Stock rom will not be able to use it .

The solution here would be to flash a speedmod kernel for 19000 ( look in My Android collections ( link below) under kernels and flash that to get CWM, untick Auto reboot in Odin before flashing after that get into CWM recovery and format system & Data or everything back to RFS using CWM universal lag fix menu.

you can also look at My android solutions (link below) for solving mmcblk0p2 problems

I am now on the speedmod kernel but when trying to revert to rfs i get the following errors:

Reboot into cwm recovery

go to advanced speedmod menu
do convert filesystems to RFS

cant mount dev block mmcblk0p1 or mmcblk0
no such file or directory
cant mount mnt sdcard
backup failed.
you may need more free space on int sd
aborting

In win7 in the disk module i can see a e and g drive but it says no media .. so im unable to do anything about it.

also on CMW recovery i can get into the mount USB storage menu, but the pc won''t show anything except the e and g drive with no media...

Basically this means your Internal SD card is corrupt , you can try ADB whilst in Recovery to see if you can pull anything from your internal SD card. Look in MY Directory (link Below) about ADB, if you are not familiar about ADB

or you can push a custom ROM into it to flash with CWM

The other option to get phone booting would be to use a two primary partitioned External SD card to act as the Internal SD card.

Ive tried a lot of stuff but adb won't recognise my phone...

I don't get an android device listed in my hardware devices list... only under usb devices it will say a composite usb device...
Even tried a other pc (which is fresh) but no luck either.. when i put my own phone on the same usb cable it recongises it straight away.
So no probs with usb cable/pc.

Any help? external SD-card option, not an option in this case...

Any other thoughts?

thnx for all the help!

Your SDK manager must have installed sources for your Android version to be able to run ADB and recognize the phone. Did you do it?

At the moment im able to get a bit further with adb.. only when my phone is in recovery it says in adb device offline...
Any ideas on howto proceed?

In android system recovery i get the following errors:

failed to mount sdcard (file existst)
copy dbdata media cant mount sdcard
the rest seems to work.. but the phone stays in bootloop.

Whiping / clearing doesn;t help.

I tried flashing a lot of stuff, currently im on darky rom ressurection 10.2
