Before Reading i do not take responsebilty of anything you choose to do to your device

Ok guys, so im very sure half of us flash the XXLQ5, and im more than sure half of those who flashed it used the pit file, before they knew there was something wrong with it, so what happened to me exactly was this

i flashed XXLQ5 via odin, with pit file
booted up device (i was so happy)
i had a bunch of mods, zips, etc. files in my usb storage, so i said lets format it
it showed 11.50 GB, like it should, but when i formated it, it showed 4.10 GB
i was then going crazy, i formatted it twice again with no help
i flashed siyah kernel, then formated it from siyah kernel, still no help
i pluged it into my pc, (mass storage and media) and formated it, still no luck
i flashed GB via odin, (with no pit), and formated it after boot, and still no luck
i flashed cm9 via odin, (with no pit), and formated it after boot, and same thing
so i called Samsung tech support (i had to), and told everything
the guy asked how experienced am i, i told him "what"
he said "did you flash this on your phone, or a friend"
i said "no me", he then told me about how half of the phone calls today was about this problem
then he asked me for my email, he said they have made a pit file to fix this problem
and he would send it to me via email
so here it is everyone, how to fix your usb storage

take that pit file, choose you favorite 4.0.3 rom, MUST BE ODIN FILES (i recommend XWLPG)

and flash it using this pit file, when you boot up, DO NOT CHANGE KERNEL
go to settings/storage/erase usb storage
you will see you usb storage go from 4 GB to 11.5 GB

IF I HELPED YOU OUT, DONT FORGET TO PRESS THE THX BUTTON

HERE'S THE LINK TO THE PIT FILE

after you have formatted your usb storage, you can safely change your kernel

Never instantly flash leaked ROMs... Can be a death sentence

I think they are collecting emails from beta testers. How is possible a mistake like this I can't understand this.

Rubbish. Anyone who flashes this 'leak' on their phone is an idiot. And anyone who refuses to take responsibility for their own actions (and phone) is a bigger idiot.

P.S - We know who you are BTW. Some of us on here aren't stupid :-/

:thumbdown::thumbdown::thumbdown:

That's quite offensive. Why do you think that? Honestly, I don't feel like an idiot just because I've flashed this leak (nor the other dozen leaks I've flashed so far, like the first 2.3.3, 2.3.4, 4.0.1 etc.) As I don't use .pit file, as advised by devs and senior users, I haven't experienced the problem discussed here, and my experience with LQ5 has been great so far. So, why should I be labeled as an idiot?
