Yesterday I receive an OTA update for my Dual SIM Desire 500 from 1.13.401.2 to 1.26.401.2 (new feature: I can set Primary storage - SD card or Phone storage). But... I can't root my device now.

I can unlock bootloader, I can flash recovery, but I can't mount system and devlog. Neither TWRP nor CWM can't manage it.

So I can't flash Stock_ROM_1.06.401.1.zip and I can't restore my previous backup.
It's very very frustrating...

Have you any idea?

Just to notify you how my issue resolved. They couldn't fix the device, but they offered me the same one, except brand new. I'm going to take it today. Just so that you know if it happens to you, because from what I've read this seems to be a common issue for our devices. It's a shame.
