Recently, I've tried to flash my phone with CM11 ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2587481 ), but it got into a bootloop, showing the CM logo with the circling arrow. So, I tried flashing another ROM, still bootloops. Stock ROM, bootloops.
I tried to reformat everything, but formatting in /data and formatting in /sdext comes up with an error:
E:format_volume: make_extf4fs failed on /dev/block/stl13 Error formatting /data!
E:format_volume: make_extf4fs failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 Error formatting /sd-ext!
I've googled this situation, browsed the forums for a while, but no one seems to have had this problem, at least no one I know of. There was someone on a HTC One, who claimed that it might've corrupted his partitions and that he had to fix it with ADB. I have no idea how ADB works.
Another option that pops up everywhere without explanation is "Use Odin to flash stock ROM" . I tried that, but Odin doesn't detect my phone, and windows gives an error that the device is unrecognized.
Does anyone have any idea what to do? I am at a loss here. The things I've tried, summarized:
I tried flashing several other ROMs, including stock.
I tried reformatting /data and /sdext, which both gave errors.
I tried reformatting the dalvik cache, but it didn't do so, without giving any message.
I tried flashing stock with Odin, but couldn't, since Odin didn't detect my phone.
I flashed CWM again, without success.
I tried searching for similar problems, but no one seems to have them.
