Exclamation [Q] only soft-bricked E160K ?

Hi,

- I can't boot into odin-mode (vol- + home + pwr): some korean text on the display. in the bottom a "!" in a yellow triangle. doesn't switch to the second logo.
- the device doesn't boot normally. Samsung logo and a blue line goes from left to right the the device stops (lsusb: idVendor=04e8, idProduct=6860 recognized)
- I can boot into recovery: cwm-based touch recovery v5.5.0.4. I can't flash any rom. Upgrade process stopped before the end. I can't do wipe data:
formatting /data: E: format_volume: make_extf4fs failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p25
same as /cache

what should I do? How can I install a newer recovery with current cwm? Can I unbrick over USB?

regards, Gabor

Now I can do an adb shell while I'm in cwm recovery.

is this partition table normal?

Code:
/proc # fdisk /dev/block/mmcblk0

The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 3816960.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
   (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

Command (m for help): p

You might try a usb jig to get into download mode.
I bought one on eBay a while back just in case. But haven't needed it yet.

Google up usb jig i717 or jtag galaxy note, and you will find out how to buy one, or make one if you have soldering skills. And use one.

Here is a link to one on eBay. I'm sure there are many places to get one.

There are videos on YouTube that explain how to do it as well.

Hi,

internal SD-card damaged. Only some partition was readable. I could go to recovery, I could modify the boot.img and map everything to the external SD.
