Default AR recovery and s-off ( FIX )

I have seen a lot of folks having all kind of strange issues with AR recovery after s-off. Myself included. Most notably:

1) No being able to mount the SD card getting error:
E: can't mount /dev/block/mmcblkp2 ( File exists )

2) unable to preform nandroid back up stating oops an error occurred, please check the log. well there is no log.

3) cant move the error log, gives another error.


After hours of trying to do everything under the sun, this is extremely frustrating; nothing works, but....

CWM touch. I can mount the SD card, and do nandroid back ups.

Is anyone else having issues with AR recovery?


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOLUTION FOR NANDROID backups and restores ONLY ( suggestion thanks to: a.mcdear & Mikej69 ; give credit where credit is due )

WARNING THIS WILL ERASE YOUR EXTERNAL SD MEMORY CARD
Some steps can be omitted since I have CWM touch installed.

**An important note about CWM: For the Rezound there is a charging bug. This bug prevents the phone from charging if you happen to let the battery die. This happened to me and sux big time.**

OPTION 1

1) boot to hboot usb mode
2) flash AR 3.15
2a) ( option from scotty1223 ) within AR choose wipe sd card
3) Reboot to your ROM
4) Navigate under SETTINGS -> SD and phone storage
5) Choose Unmount SD card
6) Choose Erase card
7) reboot into recovery and run your backups and restores; they should work

OPTION 2 usb mounting

Within AR recovery choose partition SD card with all default settings ( that resolved the error when mounting the SD card within AR recovery, however i cannot view the files on a PC when mounted in AR recovery still ). Others are claiming that it works, so i believe that, just me having issues.

If anyone needs AR 3.14, you can get it here

I've been asking the same question about five times with no answer. I tried the ICS fixes that others have posted with no luck. So if you get a answer to this, I would love to know the hows.....

I used a combo of the galaxy nexus, amonra recovery, stock recovery (htc official), and the Evo3D version of twrp to make this work.

Known Issues: The internal SD card won't mount correctly. I am working on it.
Workaround: Made flashable zip files that manually mount the internal sd card. If you need a file that is on it, flash the corresponding zip file in recovery. Then you will be able to access it. Sorry about this.... The "real" fixes aren't working as they should

Installation: Flash the attached image via fastboot or attached PH98IMG.zip. Use the command "fastboot flash recovery nameoffile.img" if you chose the fastboot route.

The emergency main version one is for people who have their main version set really high and don't have a working recovery to downgrade it. After using the emergency main version zip I highly recommend using the main version downgrader linked in my signature.

You should use amon ra 3.15 with ICS Leak. See if it works then.

I just tried it. Downloaded RA 3.15 then fastboot flash recovery recovery.img. The phone took it, then I reboot to bootloader and then to recovery. I tried a backup and got the following:

Ooops... something went wrong!
Please check the recovery log!
