I've been running the sinless rom (art) for a long time and it's been fantastic for the most part. However, when I woke up this morning, my phone was slow to wake up and very laggy for a couple seconds before rebooting into a boot loop. I am able to get back into TWRP, but I no longer have access to internal storage as TWRP reports that it is unable to mount '/data'. Currently, I can use adb while in TWRP, but not while in fastboot usb mode (fastboot command still works). I'm hoping to be able to regain access to the internal storage without formatting. Anyone know how I can fix this?

This has happened to a couple folks myself included. Mine did it on Vanir and it fixed itself with multiple reboots and that I had some ROMs saved on the external SD.

Thanks for posting. I have actually tried wiping the cache and re-flashing the ROM, but I still can't seem to get out of the boot loop. I'll just keep rebooting and hope it fixes itself for now.

I've rebooted it many, many times now and it's still a no go. Does anyone know what else I could try?

When you go to recovery and mount it shows 0 memory right. If you click on the storage line is anything selected? I was trying to remember how mine screwed up.

Yeah, that's correct. It shows 0 memory. Clicking on the storage line gives options for internal storage, micro sd, and usb-otg. They all show 0 MB.

If you go into the file explorer section will ext SD contents show up?

I got this from a g2 thread. Lots of problems like this with twrp. Never had this crap with cwm.

1.You have to first get the new android sdk.*
2. Then launch a command prompt where the adb sideload program is located. I believe it's \SDK\platform-tools.
3. Place the rom (Zip file) in that same folder as step 2.
4. Boot into TWRP recovery.
5. Select ADB Sideload from Advanced > ADB Sideload.
6. In the command prompt launched from step 2, type in command "adb sideload filename.zip". The "filename.zip" will be changed to the name of your rom, which is located in the same folder as the adb sideload program. You can have a different path, but this makes things easier.
7. The rom should now be transferring to your phone.*

Second half is in English.

I can't verify all this will work so use caution. But it fixed the same problem on the their device.

You may have tried that already since you mentioned adb above.

I did flash the rom using usb-otg before, but I tried doing it this way too and I'm still having the same issue. You think changing the recovery to cwm and re-flashing again might work?

Did you already try reflashing twrp? Your problem seems worse than mine as I could still see my ext SD and was able to flash something from there. But it took multiple flashes and I was in panic mode the whole time.

Yeah I actually tried that fairly early one and it didn't help. I tried flashing philz touch over the twrp with fastboot too and I'm still stuck with twrp.
