Default Storage unavailable error

So I was using the Minin3 Maximus 5.6 rom for quite a while now. But I was wanting to try out some aosp roms so I made a backup and installed Carbon rom nightly build. Used it for a few days but I have actually got really adjusted to touchwiz. Thus I wiped everything, installed the backup, now my internal storage is just not responding. Everything works just fine. However I can not download any images, save videos from youtube, basically anything that will save to internal storage. I have already tried going to twrp and rewiping everything, tried fixing permissions, everything I can think of. This happened once before and I had to completely wiped the whole phone and external sd card to get it to work. Really trying not to do that again. Any help is much appreciated.

Should, by flashing the mj4 tar, it should clean up the phone, after you install the mj4, go back into dl mode, flash the cf root, the flash recovery and should take care of you.. Pretty quick process

At the same time, when you go back stock, you might just want to go to KK, MJ is making a mini rom for it as well.

Yeah I was thinking about doing that anyway, but I have to update my bootloader. That I have never done. All of this odin stuff is new to me, I've had tons of nexus devices and htc's so this is all new to me lol.

I hear ya, I was always an HTC guy until this, different learning curve but same concept, honestly though, Samsung is much easier.. Just look through the note 3 forum, read read read and then if you can't figure out or understand, then ask, most people will offer up help pretty quick..

Well thank you for all the help, I was hoping for a easier fix than doing all of the odin stuff again but if it is the only way, oh well lol.

Odin is as painless as it gets. Everything is automated.

You'll love it.

The One-click packages are even easier, some would aver.

LolŪ
