I've been trying to get JB on my phone for a while now. I went back to completely stock and got the OTA. Downloaded and I thought it installed. Rebooted, still gingerbread. So I rerooted from scratch. Installed Codename Android on it. Booted up and was running fine for about 5 minutes, at this point I had only signed in to google. Hadn't restored or reloaded any apps. It rebooted on me again. Now. I can't get /sdcard to mount. Fastboot is saying I have no boot.img or recovery, But I can get scroll and click on recovery from that menu. I can't get the ****ing phone to do anything now. I've had this thing rooted since day 1. I'll be honest I really don't know how to use ADB.

Does anyone have any clue how to fix my damn phone?

Format SD through settings, Odin to stock and try again. This time read the instructions carefully... all of them.

Edit: Also make sure drivers are working for adb. Before moving on to another pc, I spent hours one day trying to get adb to work on one of my thinkpads. For whatever reason, I could not get the pad to recognize phone through adb.

I ended up just filing a claim and getting a new-ish one. Mine wouldn't run jellybean to save it's life. Even unrooted and did the OTA update. New one came today and is rocking JB like a champ. I had it rooted about 5 mins after activation.
