Hi all,

I downloaded the modaco update-nexusone-FRF50-signed.zip, and flashed my stock 2.1 (out of the box) nexus one rom, it worked well for about 9 hours, i plugged it into my car charger and when i took it off, it froze, and the touch screen disabled. Now im trying to reflash the rom and keep getting stuck at E: Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1, then E: Can't mount SD card

Any ideas on how i can get this working again?

Thanks

Well..... I wouldn't consider it to be a hardware malfunction yet.
1. Have you tried a non-apps2sd rom, like Stock Froyo
2. Have you tried completely reformatting your SD card on your desktop, while using a MicroSD to SD to USB converter or something of that sort. You'll need to delete all the partitions as you won't be able to see the EXT partiton in explorer, use disk manager
3. Have you tried using a different SD card?
4. Maybe you should completely wipe all the device in fastboot, maybe something is screwy, maybe even reinstall your recovery image

Try these things, then come back with results. We can diagnose issues after some of these troubleshooting techniques

i haven't tried formatting the card, but i have tried other cards with the update.zip flash, do you have a link to the stock froyo file

i think the problem is that the one i downloaded wasnt legit, and i have wiped the device in fastboot, the problem is that something is wrong with the touch screen, when it relaods from rebooting, it will get to the touch the android welcome screen and wont register any touch screen input, only volume up/down, trackball, and power button

Flash the original recovery image. You can find it http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=614057

You would do this through fastboot. Its easy, try that out

Put the img file on your sdcard, boot into fastboot, it should automatically check for the image and you should get a prompt asking for you to continue installing the image

no luck, it doesnt search for the image. When i enter fastboot, it just shows four options: bootloader, reboot, reboot bootloader, and power down
