[Q] Failed to mount efs, repartition failed, internal memory 0.0mb : PLease help
Hi friends ,
I am using Samsung S Advance since last eight month, Till now i have flash more than 300 nightly and custom roms over my mobile and evry time i succeeded, but two days back when i got stuck in omnirom I use ODIN to Flash Stock JB . My Phone Boot After that And got stuck on initial setting wizard everytime i try to pass that it shows
unfortunately samsung setting wizard stopped , so i can not pass that point ,
So i flash stock firmware again and again but everytime same problem
Then I reboot in Recovery which show message " fail to mount efs( invalid argument)
I ignore it and Start Recovery again and root my mobile using update.zip(which is temporary recovery) and then flash cocore kernel And try to restore my backup( I have 6 different rom backup , i tried them all) but every rom got stuck in bootloop .
Then I try to Flash CM10.2 but that also didn't work
Then I Flash some custom rom like sami-os and galexperia which are based on stock firmware and they start working but those roms are freezing a lot, When i try to install any software in those rom they says insufficient memory , I Check storage and it shows
"DEVICE MEMORY 0.00B"
Everytime I reboot all user data get wiped and evrytime setting wizard appear like first boot
I have tried to mount efs, data, ,system via cwm . There is error to mount efs via cwm . I mount data, system successfully but after every reboot they are unmounted.
So Made some search and finally decide to repartition via odin using PIT file given somewhere in this forum but odin shows "fail"
My Friend suggest me to revert back to gb but i couldn't find Indian firmware ( All sites give link to hotfile page which is banned), so i followed post in xda about downgrading from JB to GB and try to flash PIT, PDA , CSC file given by OP via odin but it fails everytime .
So again I flash JB via odin but same result( Got stuck in setting wizard)
So I Tried to root again using update.zip(which i mentioned earlier and which works for me everytime in past) but it switched off during update in recovery so now i can not start cwm now and can use only stock recovery and unable to flash custom rom.
I have Given All Details about how problem start and here is summary of all problems
1. fail to mount efs(invalid argument)
2. 0.0b internal memory
3. unable to repartition using ODIN
4. user data deleted on every boot and boot as first boot
5. can not pass setup wizard in stock firmware after flashing stock via Odin
I think i have messed up with internal memory and which is causing problem or my recovery is damaged.
please give me solution .
If any one have INDIAN GB firmware with pit, csc , pda, bootloader please upload and give link , i searched everywhere no link is working.
Thanks in advance
EDIT: I have successfully downgrade to GB and 0.0b internal memory problem is solved , for detail read 7th post

Every time i flash jb with odin it get stuck in start up in setting wizard with message " process com.google.process.gapps has stopped" and then " setting wizard stopped"
