I had Voodoo ext2 installed on my phone. I wanted to uninstall it. I had CWM installed on the phone but when I rooted into recovery, I got the Samsung Recovery Utils screen. I can't do anything from there.

I get the following error:

D:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
(Invalid argument)
# MANUAL MODE #

I need help ASAP if someone knows what I need to do to fix it.
Thanks!

In stock recovery highlight apply update zip and hit home button. That will get you to clockwork as long as you did not do anything with the update zip on your sdcard.

good day. From the Fascinate sporting the XDA app.

Or you could reboot recovery from rom manager and it will take you, right into clockwork, it might be easier for some people. Remember if you are using the voodoo uninstaller follow the directions to the t and you will not have any problems I just used it today and I had no issues whatsoever.

Oh and chopper I noticed you are usually the first one to respond whenever anyone needs help I just wanna say thanks from all of us for all your help, I might need that help someday lol.

Can you please let me know the steps that you took to fix the boot loop? I was a newbie so I installed the Voodoo kernel then I've installed a non-voodoo kernel when I was playing with the ROM manager and it really messed it up. I've reflashed with the stock system/kernel/recovery files and wiped data/cached and it keeps looping into the Samsung Recovery Utils.

Thanks.

I don't remember what I've done to fix the phone. That was a few months ago. All I know is that I stay far away from VOODO Kernels!

I wonder if you can get into the download mode and ODIN a fresh copy of EB01 or DL09.

Here is the link for the EB01 (Froyo):

And here is the link for DL09 (Eclair):

Best of luck!
