Default [need help] Problem with bootloop and internal storage

Hey guys,

I want to repair the i9003 for a friend and I'm a little bit confused o.0
I own a i9001 so I'm familiar with Odin and that stuff.

He gave me the device which only had access to the Download Mode. So I flashed a Stock ROM (MODEM, CODE, CSC, ...). It ended in bootloop and previous appeared note in recovery that it wasn't able a access to the sd card anyway ("unable to write to ums lunfile" and can't mount).

I flashed various Stock ROMs but everytime the same conclusion (bootloop). I've already tried to format/(un)mount sdcard through CWM but no chance.

Can anyone help? I read about a method where you have to open the device and connect something to the mainboard but it isn't my device, so I wouldn't do it.

Need help
Samsung Galaxy S4 - GT-I9505
ROM: CM 11 - Nightly 0308

Samsung Galaxy S Plus - GT-I9001
ROM: [UNOFFICIAL][4.4.2] ParanoidAndroid 4.3 (B4) [lost but still in memory]

if phone is rooted go this dir mnt/sdcard/(files)
u can do this with wondershare mobile go program (wondershare mobile go is a software that allow u to manage phone file edit or install app or read massage that nice)

so.. mnt/sdcard(files) .export those files with wondershare mobile go from that toolbar .
see can u do this or u will get error during export(beware after export import it and make backup) ?or check it maybe these files are deleted and sdcard folder is empty like my problem.

all my regret is why i didnt backup from that.when i bought it first day.
anyway i have same problem .phone doesnt recognize int/ex sd card and unavailable keep goin thread to find .wont fix with flash by odin at all .

tell me about those files try find them maybe they are corrupted .like mine.i think must take it from other i9003 that hasn't sd card problem.when u find plz upload cuz i need too
and it this case problem will fix with a simple copy paste and if not u dont lose nothin

I can't do that. When I type "diskpart" in cmd.exe and "list disk" there will be no device found (only the hard drive in the computer).
But the PC recognize a device connected to it because in the taskbar the icon for a connected USB drive is shown.

In short:
- device doesn't boot normally (bootloop at logo)
- in stock recovery and CWM there is no internal sdcard shown ("E: can't mount sdcard")
- windows recognize a device but has no access to it

Is it possible to use adb sideload anyway on the i9003 or anything else where I can use adb.exe? I don't know if adb works in Download Mode ... does it?

I tried this CWM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1351056 and an another one with green letters.
The first is quite outdated (packed in 31.01.2012).

Is there a newer one?

i had exact same paroblem

do this maybe work (worked for me) .
this problem occurred when i used 16 gb toshiba as ex sd card (doesnt matter brand) after flash sd card and format it by pc that said ex sd remove unexpecteldy and turned off and whole battery charge was over. then i changed ex sd with my other phone and it work with no problem and when i replaced again 16 gb toshiba in phone ,again problem.
but after i format internal storage by phone from setting/phone storage . phone couldnt mount int sd till now.
so i inserted new ex sd and flashed whole rom with odin (MODEM, CODE, CSC, ...) phone started but without int storage i found out sd card directory is different and wont fix with flash STOCK ROM .but i doubt it for Custom ROM.
then i took ex sd card out from phone and turn it on again phone didnt boot up and was hang on samsung logo (same problem with 16 gb toshiba).then put that new ex sd card in and phone was boot up with no problem but int storage didnt come back..

so try with new ex sd and try flash rom (MODEM, CODE, CSC, ...) with odin then it will boot up.

and if ur int sd card come back again it will solve E:cant mount sdcard .first do two prior steps . for bring back internal sd again i think we need >>mnt/sdcard/(files) and copy paste those files in that location from other i9003 phone to our devices IMO cuz i tried many method they are useless. upper 60% im sure those files will revive int sd

I already solved it by destroying the internal memory on board and force install the stock ROM on an external sdcard. I successfully installed CM11 and it works except camera and downloads ^^

Remove or replace microSDCard.
Perform a clean flash with ddlf2 or original firmware.
And let us know how it went.

Also i see people saying this mistake several times...

Internal SDCard or SDCard stands for phone storage.

Emmc/External Storage/ External SDCard Stands for the microSDCard.

Noting that custom roms usually change the names.
With a custom rom the microSDCard is called emmc inside the system.
