Bootloop after CM install. Won't restore backup, mount /data, flash stock
Hi developers. I am sorry for posting this. I spent the last week trying to solve it by myself with no hope. This is my second time installing something on a phone, but it is my only phone, so I beg anyone for a help...
-What I did:
Some days ago I downgraded to this ROM C5503_10.1.1.A.1.310_GLOBAL-LTE.ftf to use DoomLord rooting script. I did it with flashtool for linux and I applied his .bat step by step in the terminal since windows would not detect my phone.
It worked. I had root for some days, but I was still annoyed by sony default android. So I decided to install Cyanogenmod.
I unlocked the device with sony official system and wen't straight to this instructions, before the first reboot
I booted succesfully in CWM, followed everything as it says there. But that's where weird things happened:
I tried, it wouldn't mount /sdcard. Since I don't understand much about this, I thought it was normal. The next choice was sdcard1, I backed up there. Or so I thought...
-The factory reset
I factory reset, again, not mounting sdcard. Here is the message that shows when I try this now:
can't mount /data!
Error mounting /sdcard.android_secure
Data wipe complete.
Since it said it is complete, I went on installing the zip file from my sdcard1. Both CM 10.2.1 (dogo, the right one for my phone) and the appropriate GAPPS.
Now it loops on the CM loop animation and I have to remove the battery...
-The restore problem
It still boots on the recovery mode. So I tried recovering my backup from sdcard1. But the image name is 1970.01.01.00.03.16. And it says "md5 mismatch"
I tried flashing again the stock rom with flashtool. The proccess goes on but nothing happens. I still have CWM and the boot loop.
I read elsewhere someone with a similar problem who solved using sony "emma" software. I installed it, it won't even recocnize my phone.
It recocnizes that there is a phone, but don't know which one.
But that has alway been the case with windows. I haven't been able to do anything in windows other then accessing the sdcard (when the phone worked).
Is there something I can do? I imagine that somehow, for some reason, the /data and /sdcard partitions got corrupted. I imagine I would need to repartition this and install again, but I have no idea how this happens on phones...
I can mount /system /cache and /storage/sdcard1. just /data I canīt. Says "error mounting /data"
This is my only phone and a vey recent $400 thing. I was very stupid to do that withouth a replacement and really need this phone. I greatly appreciate any help...
