i never tried doing it like that, but i dont see any reason that wouldnt work.
after you flash the rom and gapps, dont reboot, navigate to the backup tab and make your backup.
the recovery shouldnt be forcing you to reboot after the flash, so i dont see why you cant go straight to backup.

try to find some newer drivers, or possibly just some different ones. if its not recognizing your phone, either its a driver issue, your phone software is badly damaged (this usually isnt fixable), or its an issue with your pc.

i have seen before, no matter what was tried the phone couldnt be recognized, changed to another pc and everything was fine.
if none of that works, you may need to look into a new phone.

i cant really answer your question directly but,
i dont see the point of check/change the file system of the phone. it has to be what it has to be in order for the phone to work. if it can work on multiple formats, im not aware of it.
as for the sd card, as far as i know, its always fat32 stock. i have read some post on partitioning and changing the format on some or possibly all of it (i dont recall), but you would only do that for a specific purpose or mod. i believe if you change it off fat32 for general stock use it wont work.

I do not use samsung, but try mskip's tutorial: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2678634

Alright, so I didn't try the toolkit yet, but I got a bit more into my phone. I switched usb cables, causing it for ODIN 3.08 to finally recognize my phone. I put it into download mode, and I downloaded the stock ROM for my exact phone model (SCH-I545 Verizon). I put it in the AP section on ODIN and hit start. This is the result every time.

I found a video on this:
http://youtu.be/GbAJH_mL6N4
Credits to zhubair

His video is not so clear, but here is what you do

1. Open Odin
2. Take battery out then plug USB cable in
3. There should be a task bar balloon that pops up, saying something about drivers. Click on it.
4. Check the box that says PDA, click on the PDA button, then find the cwm recovery zip for ur device
5. Wait for the green status bar
6. When ur device has the logo appear, wait for about 5 seconds just in case then unplug it
7. Insert battery, then enter download mode
8 Minimise Odin then wait for the driver software information window that says ur device is ready to use to appear (IF IT APPEARED EARLIER YOU CAN CLOSE IT)
9. Open kies then Tools-Firmware upgrade and installation
10. Enter the details it tells you to (Find it behind ur battery, you can take it out)
11. Then it will have a window saying the correct stock rom.
12. Search it up on google then download. ( Remember to close all kies processes in task manager)
13. Close Odin then open again.
14. Check and click PDA then choose the rom you just downloaded
15. Wait until the log says finished!


Phew, lots of deciphering! (This is the price of helping people lol, still it's my pleasure.)

Hit thanks if it helped!

I've done a great deal of searching these forums and can't find a cut and dry answer. Will root be available for the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 running 4.3 on vruand3. Or, can you downgrade to unlock the bootloader. I really miss having a sweet rom installed and don't mind donating. Verizon sent out a small update that changed the baseband to vruand3 . I lost my soft root. And can't use the simple root apps anymore. Any suggestions would be great.

Kindle Fire HD 7 1st Generation doesnt Power-on after installing FFF
Recently I have got a Kindle Fire HD 7 (tate) with FW 7.4.1. I upgraded to FW 7.4.6 and followed the instructions in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2271909 to install the 2nd bootloader and TWRP 2.7 which worked like a charm. Everthing fine and I had brand new Android 4.4 KitKat on my device. (Cyanomodgen)

As last step I decided to install FFF bootloader following http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1632375 using TWRP. Flashing worked well, but after pressing Reboot, device switched of and now doesn't power on any more. Even connecting it by my fastboot cable (yes, I have one) doesn't change anything. My device is dead.

Can somebody help me?

Cheers, T_S
