No SD Card/USB, execept from bootloader (kernel boots: board_hero.disable_sdcard=1)
Major problem as a result of an unsuccessful attempt to permanently installing the recovery image.
The result is that Android now reports that the SD card is not present (I've tried 3 different cards), and the USB mode allowing adb is no longer available – the USB interface is not recognised (except from the bootloader).
I can flash stock firmwares from my SD card using Hboot or from RUU packages using USB by manually booting the bootloader, thus the interfaces themselves are working.
I have attempted to clean wipe the entire device, updating/downgrading and even installing the newest 2.73.405.5 ROM did not resolve this issue.
I have not found anyone reporting the same problem. I am running out of ideas and could really need some help/advice on how to resolve this. Especially if someone have a better understanding of how android is booted and how the symlinks and devices are created. I am a long time Linux user, but without the ability to use the recovery image/adb, USB or SD card to patch or inspect I am currently experiencing some difficulty investigating this further.
I've done some more digging and I think I have found the problem, however I don't know how to correct it.
Dmesg shows my kernel command as:
smisize=32 androidboot.baseband=6.35.06.18 androidboot.cid=HTC__Y13 androidboot.carrier=HTC-Nor androidboot.mid=HERO10000 androidboot.keycaps=qwerty androidboot.mode=normal androidboot.serialno=HT97ML906986 androidboot.bootloader=1.76.0007 no_console_suspend=1 console=null
it also lists:
trout: SD-Card interface disabled
and as a result /dev/block/vold/179:1 is never created and not mounted.
Is there a way to correct the kernel command line, or do I need to wait for a S-OFF Hboot firmware to have possibly correct this?
