Phone is recognised when its connected in normal mode. I can see it in device manager.
I found commands for kitkat phones on galaxy s5 page. I tried those commands and I was able to see the partitions in my phone.
I think my ZR is well partitioned. 4.6 GB userdata out of 8GB. thats like more than 50% space for user apps

I had a problem where I couldn't connect to ADB when in recovery...

Turned out that I used old version of ADB(Android SDK). Using newer ADB fixed the issue

I used this method with TWRP and CM12, and now I can't access internal storage (it's showing up on the file list, though). I will try out some stuff and post if I get a solution to my problem...

EDIT: I just formated sdcard partition from recovery, it works now!

I want to say thanks to the OP for devoting time to write this guide, which made a lot of people happier.

Formatted as ext4?

Check sdcard owner & group

Hmmm...looks like while I can view the contents of the sdcard, I can't edit it (can't create folder)...

I formatted as EXT4
Owner - 00000 - root
Group - 01015 - sdcard_rw

My external SD has the same owner & group, and same permittions, and I can fully use it

If your sdcard exists in /mnt/media_rw/sdcard0 then in terminal emulator app enter:

Code:
su
chown -R 2800:2800 /mnt/media_rw/sdcard0
See if that helps.

AW MAN I've been digging for two days trying to find a solution, formatted that partition a couple of times, ran multiple scripts, yet this command is what helped me, thank you so much!
