I'm using Revolutionary CWM Recovery 4.0.1.4 that came with the revolutionary.io root method...

I formatted and partitioned the sdcard using this recovery

I have 16gb card - 2048mb ext4 - 64mb linux-swap - and the rest fat32

everytime i goto wipe dalvik i get e:unknown volume for path [sd-ext]
everytime i go to nandroid backup it says no sd-ext found
.android_secure folder is present on the sdcard

i know i have sd-ext, why do i see this error?

I had the same problem and I was able to fix it by formatting the SDCARD and then creating new partition. If you do, make sure you backup your data first.

i thought that too... so i copied contents of the sdcard to the pc.... formatted and repartitioned the sdcard, and copied contents back...

still getting the error... i know 100% that i have a sd-ext partition...

i'm wondering if its a flaw or bug in the recovery.img im using, which is the revolutionary cwm 4.0.1.4 that came with the revolutionary.io root method

After talking with attn1 on irc #alpharev
he re-wrote the Revolutionary CWM Recovery 4.0.1.4 to support SD-EXT

so for anyone still having this issue, here is the recovery he fixed and gave me

please help
hello,
i have a huawei honor u8860 running official ICS 4.0.3.
i was trying to root it with CMW recovery and by mistake i've installed a CMW recovery for another honor device so i think i bircked it.
when i power on the device it goes to the stock recovery mod with the same message above ( unknown volume path.. etc)
anyway it's stuck at the recovery mod and i can not access my device.
the debugging is off too so i can not connect to the PC too.
can anybody please help, i would really appreciate it
thank you
