Did you fix (ie format) the partition?
~ # umount /data
umount: can't umount /data: Invalid argument
is normal if it's already unmounted, but did you also umount /sdcard
then run e2fsck
if you still get errors you need to format it, not just wipe.
Once the format is complete, you can either:
1- OTG cable
2- adb push <name of rom>.zip /sdcard/
3- initiate sideload in custom recovery, then adb sideload <name of rom>.zip
I'm just writing this from the HTC One...unbelievable
Thanks for your help....I was on the brink of smashing it yesterday!
I've gone through the e2fsck once again and it seemed okay...so I tried to push the rom as it is supposed, so just the zip name and correct order of steps!
I also asked mike1986. for his opinion and he told me that the "freezing" does only look as if it freezes....
A mistake I made was not to wait until the cursor started blinking again when I was pushing the rom over to the device....I didn't notice that there was a running process...no percentage or something!
So I tried again and pushed the ROM again...it took approx 7 minutes and the cursor started blinking again...
The file was completely transferred and so I could start flashing it fr recovery! Worked at first attempt, no bootloop or crashes!
The phone is smooth again..even better than before I dare say....
I've learned a lot, especially from you, Mr. nkk71..thank you for spending so much time on the problems caused by the stupidity of people like me
THANKS THANKS THANKS very much!
