I am trying to restore my stock nandroid so I can get a GPS lock and then go back to CM11.

It sounds like your /data partition is corrupt just like mine is. Take a look at this thread and let me know if you have had any of these problems if you don't mind.

I'm on Philz now and I'm getting the same error. Has nothing to do with Philz. I'm going to try what dottat suggests in the last post when I get time.

I switched to twrp as there is an option in it to repair /data was able to flash a stock ROM for gps. Thanks for that thread I'll check it out so I can hopefully switch back to philz.

Unfortunately for me it didn't fix my issue. I thought that sounded way too simple. It's going to take a modified RUU or something like that to truly repair a corrupted data partition. There's a guide here somewhere but it's only for GSM M8's....which suks.

I take that back??? WTH?? I just shut my phone down and entered Philz from the key combo (Hboot screen) and I'm not getting the error any more. I'm going to try and flash a sense based ROM. If this is all it took to fix my data partition I'm gonna be pissed lol! Ive spent a long time dealing with this issue.

Well, I knew it was too good to be true. I still cant install a GPE ROM. DH's ROM appeared to install correctly but it just sat there afterward and spun the nice little GPE balls around forever. Back to my nandroid of KingKang. So frustrated.

Wait for our firmware to update then try installing again, I bet it'll work then.

Thanks,

I "Repaired" (lol) my data partition with TWRP and Philz stopped giving me that error but I noticed last night it took quite a while to boot into Philz and sure enough it was giving me the same error again. I tried to choose a file from the sdcard and it wouldnt mount. So, until I get my data partition fixed i'm very limited on what I can flash.

As far as xda goes, everybody seems to be using twrp. I would recommend using either the latest official or whatever the latest version is by captain throwback. His versions always seem to be one step ahead of official twrp.

Mostly because Philz is discontinued.
