[Q] please help. /sdcard gone
mildly freaking out here, need advice.
D800 - AT&T
phone has been acting up recently when bluetooth is connected. it's not totally locked up, just extremely super slow to the point that it appears locked up and if i can't wait for it, i just reboot (hold down power button until restart)
This happened just a little while ago. When it came back up, I opened terminal and input
When in CWM, I went to "wipe cache partition"
I let it sit on that for over 5 minutes, and the animation was frozen, so I hard rebooted again.
When the OS came back up, ES File explorer reported "unable to find /sdcard"
I rebooted into recovery again and went to "format /data and /data/media (/sdcard)"
I let it sit on that screen for over five minutes and no progress.
Hard reboot again, reboot to CWM, choose "factory reset"
this took about ten minutes, and said "complete"
I rebooted and it sat on boot animation logo for over ten minutes.
reboot into recovery again, still no /sdcard found.
at this point, i'm guessing the data on the sdcard is totally lost, but i just want the OS to load.
What's the best way to get all the partitions back to normal, including /sdcard ?
I understand this will be wiping the phone.
adb, flash new image or what?
