Hi Iím having serious problems with my phone, it constantly reboots no matter what I do. Was rooted running slimkat and then it kept rebooting? Also had devil kernel installed. Tried to restore previous ROM in TWRP 2.7 but it fails instantly, couldnít flash any new ROMís either it would just stall on 0%. SO I just flashed back to stock 4.1.2 in ODIN. I also have the old bootloader I never updated to 4.3. Does anyone have any ideas whatís going on. I also tried to factory reset in the stock recovery but it instantly rebooted again after trying to wipe data. Does anyone know whatís going on?

In stock recovery it says E:failed to mount /data (Invalid argument)
cant mount '/data'(Invalid argument)


Just did some research some say i need a PIT file. Where would i find one and how would i flash it ?

Try Downloading a FULL Firmware Package from samsung firmware or sammobile for your device in Odin. I think you might have to flash back to ics . This will flash the Pit because of partition changes If i remember correctly...
Then you can again flash what you like once you root and recovery install

Looks like /data is not accessible.
Did you format, delete any /data while switching from slimkat/4.1.2 roms ?

Log in to recovery and then under Advancec-> File manager try accessing /data mount and see if you can access it ?
If you can access it then /data is not corrupted and it can be fixed by simply formatting it.
If not then I am not sure if there is any choice other than try to format /data and see if this fixes the issue -> Please note by formatting /data you will loose all your data and settings.
