[Q] Paradox of damaged partitions
Well, hello. Not new here, but quite new in posting things, was always just reading what these guys are doing and followed their instructions. result was always being able to flash whatever on a selected device. But today i'm coming with a stupid problem that i hope somebody would help me solve.
2 days ago (and i will be full of details here) di flashed ARHD51.0 on my Htc One. everything went well (as usual with those roms) but i wanted to format my whole phone (i had like 5gbs of backups that i could not find (4 months i was xda-ing and googleing solutions for removing invisible backups that cwm made. and then i read this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...31&postcount=2
as you well know, this is a member of trust on this site so i decided to follow those instructions and that backfired on me i must say. what happened next was that my phone was in a bootloop, recovery was dameged and adb (and still) could not read my device, fastboot would on the otherside.
I managed to flash new cwm (philz touch 184.108.40.206.) via fastboot and it worked. but in cwm messages are following (will copy just some of the lines because you will understand the problem)
failed to mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p39 on data ext4 (file exists)
failed to mount /data
failed to mount /cache
then something like failed to install /tmp/update.zip (that message was shown when i was trying to install stock rom)
and i sideloaded stock (fail), arhd (goes to 30%, freezes on writing data&system)
when exiting cwm, it asks me to reinstall the root because it is missing (even when i install it manually via usb otg or sideload and it says done, still root is non existant.
baseline is this: i formated the sd card, and tried to do as much as i could with all the logical things, my partitions are messed up and i'm missing boot.img and system files, unable to mount data/cache/sd card. Now i can do only so much to ask you. I can try to relock the bootloader and use the ruu (but i am s-on) i can try to send boot.img or something (but how when adb push is not working, "device not found") i can format the partitions but do not know how to format them from cmd or cwm.
currently i'm downloading stock deodexed and odexed stock roms and ruu. i already have su, philz touch advanced (planning to try to flash that only because of more options than standard philz cwm) and otg ready cable to use it if there is no help for adb push.
Anybody, please help because i will tryto fix this, but i'm afraid that if i mess the order of things that needs to be done, i could brick this totally, and in this area of damaged partitions i have no exact experiance.
Any help appreciated, and can be (gladly) rewarded on demand
