Exclamation [Q] E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p2

Hello,

after update to stock I9000XXJVP from samfirmare with MD5 check (Odin 1.7, 3 files rom, pit 512, with Re-Partition, auto reboot and bootloader update) all was fine until I reboot the phone.
I got boot loops.
I again flash the phone with the same rom and same settings as above. After first reset I have:

Successfuly installed package.
Successfuly copied media files.

E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p2
Data wipe failed.

Successfuly applied multi-SCS.

Then I choose wipe data/factory reset from Android system recovery (3e) and got the same error:

E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p2

then I choose wipe cache partition and hit reboot system now.

And again boot loop...

Please help, I'm searching for sollution from two days.. I tried to flash others roms but with same result...

Try flashing back to froyo or even ezy base froyo (preffered), then flash ginger rom with bootloaders, flash speedmod kernel (latest) convert everything to ext4 and do a factory wipe in cwm recovery, then custom rom. Works for me everytime.
Goodluck

You can always reflash with .pit and repartition, to fix such partition issues.

I flashed with Odin with 512pit, re-parttion and bootloader update: 2.1 Eclair JM1, 2.2.1 Froyo JPU, 2.3.3 Ficeto_Deodexed_JVH_I9000_ODIN, and stock 2.3.4 JPU.. none of this work, every time boot-loop
I tried speedmod kernel and turn off all lagfix'es. Now all is in RFS.

Why I should convert everything back to ext4 ??

I think my problem is with internal SD-Card.. Flashing ROMs and KERNELs do not touch internal SD-Card.

From recovery I can't format internal SD-Card (memory):
E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 (No such file or directory)
E:copy_dbdata_media:Can't mount SDCARD
your storage not prepared yet. please use UI menu for format and reboot actions.

I had this problem the first time I tried to install a new rom after rooting my phone. There's a thread somewhere with a solution (in the Dev section I think, if I remember rightly) which I followed and it worked a treat.

Just install firmware PDA-I900XXJP1 and pit file 512 with odin. Tick Re-partition. I'm not sure if any other stock firmware works but this is the one advised in the thread and it's the one I used, successfully.

This will get you back to an older version of stock Froyo. From there you can root again and flash an updated rom.

Sorry, it won't let me upload the files for some reason but they can easily be found in the stock rom thread.

Hope this helps.

i know this message "E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p2" from another forum only in the context of a damaged internal sd.
