Default please, help, storage error after rooting

hi i just bought a samsung mega 6.3 in indonesia, it's a 16 version but i didn't check it before i root it, however i seem to remember when i plug it onto my computer it was 11 or 12 gb storage

so after rooting using guide in this thread " http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2355680&page=3 ", when i plug it on my computer it shows only 128 mb storage, why is it happening? and if i checked setting - more - storage it says "8 gb (why 8 gb instead of 16 gb or 12 gb?).
if i open application manager from setting - application manager it says 352 mb used out of 12 gb free.

I used odin 3.07 to flash vcoreroot-v2.tar, followed by original kernel KERNEL-XSE-I9200XXUAMEE-1369705836.tar, followed by cwm recovery v6.0.3.2 - i9200-cwm-recovery


please help me. thank you so much

The internal storage ( sdcard ) is only a folder on your data partition ( /data/media ). The entire 16GB is not allotted to your sdcard. It is shared. So you will not see the entire 16GB when you mount your sdcard on your PC. So no worried there. Also make sure your usb debugging is on before connecting your phone to PC.

Regarding root, the easiest method is to flash cwm recovery and then flash the SU zip file. If you use twrp recovery, the recovery will do the rooting for you. Just remember to reboot to recovery first after flashing the twrp recovery, else recovery will get overwritten by stock recovery.

I suggest, you flash your stock rom again and re-root. You could also try this app to root your phone using windows.
