[Q] [i9505] Possibly bricked or TWRP messed it up [SOLVED!]
I've had problems with my phone for a while now, no stable roms or mods, phone doesn't wake up from deep sleep, lagg....
So I got in to recovery mode (latest TWRP) a few hours ago and I got asked for a password? :S didn't know that TWRP had a protection function.. I pressed BACK and that was that, I got in to the menu and pressed INSTALL but the SDCARD was empty?
Using the filemanager in TWRP the internal SDCARD was still empty, but the microsd worked fine.
After rebooting the phone I got stuck on the sgs4 screen, so the rom didn't boot.
I went back to recovery and wiped everything possible and formatted the sdcard, afterward I installed a rom and rebooted.
Still the same problem, got stuck on the sgs4 screen.
In TWRP the sdcard was still empty. So I downloaded a odin flashable rom and flashed the phone through odin but got stuck at the same place.
I now have the stock recovery and when selecting "apply update from external storage", I get the error message:
"E:failed to mount /sdcard (No such file or directory)"
Is there any function in a TWRP/CWM or modded recovery that can fix the internal sdcard?
Or perhaps repartition everything?
Just to let everyone know, the flashing in odin and TWRP worked as usual, so the system/data etc partition as fine.
Guess it's the sdcard partition that's corrupted OR if TWRP somehow locked the sdcard because I didn't enter a password?
I could be wrong but then I'm completely clueless.
Appreciate some help, thanks!
Since there is no way to use adb in recoverymode or downloadmode (I wasn't able to), you need to use odin.
1. Enter download mode and flash a clean rom through odin.
2. Enter download mode again and flash TWRP through odin.
3. Wipe DATA through TWRP and reboot.
4. Factory Reset through TWRP and reboot.
