Pit Configuration

Long story short, directly after installing Swap Internal Sdcard to External Sdcard my phone rebooted into recovery mode saying that it could not mount /Data & /Cache. This was on Cyanogenmod 10.2 (latest nightly) and I was an idiot and tried to start over and failed at repartitioning my ROM. Does anyone have a ROM configuration directory tree for a PIT configuration so I can recovery my phone?

Model is: SPH-l900
Recovery: TWRP

This is my last resort D:

======Update======== 10/09/2013

I've done a lot of research, pretty much summed up my options. Since I do not have a PIT configuration for my SPH-l900 I can either buy a hardware / software combo to repair my phone, throw my phone away, or risk taking it to a sprint store.

Also what device would I use to repair my phone? JTAG / RIFFTag? or ???

And also no one can make a PIT file for the SPH-L900 (16GB) ?

I have

Just odin back to a stock rooted LJC rom and it will automagically repartition your phone back the way it needs to be.

Can you get into odin download mode by holding volume down and power? If so im 99.9% sure its an easy fix. Or you can try your luck finding a .pit configuration...

Thank you so much, I was hesitant to PM you directly and thought someone else might have the proper .PIT file...

Did you just create it yourself using Pit Magic or how did you get that .PIT configuration? If you don't mind me asking.

I was looking for a .PIT configuration file because my ROM (EMMC) was corrupted, from my experience Odin only works with regular Custom OS .tar installs if you only have a working ROM (EMMC). I had to repartition my phone first... And I did look lol, I couldn't find a working .PIT file for my phone sadly and on top of that I tried to create my own but failed it hard. I guess it was a great learning experience because sprint looked at my phone and just said that they would replace my old one, and since I've had it for about a year they just let me keep the old one :D

This one I got from a Heimdall pull.

Pit goes in pit slot, tar in pda.


I have same problem and tried to do things as your guy have shown: get the t0lte.zip and MC2 but the pit re-partition is failed after all just seconds after hit the start. Tried to do with several USBs but no help.
What should I do next? I can get my phone into ODIN download mode but could not flash the any stock ROM. I got the message :There is no PIT partition and if I attach file t0tle.pit and check the re-partition box then I got the message second after hit the start button : Re-Partition operation failed.

You should not need to repartition. I don't believe they changed to go to 4.3. What happens if you do just the tarball?

My meaning is try flashing the tar file only. Don't add the pit file or check repartition.

OH, OK... if so then I got the message something like there is no pit file. The phone if I don't do anything but just hit the power button it will come to a blank screen with nothing in it and you cannot control anything even power button and you will need to take the battery out in order to turn the phone off but I also mentioned that I can get into the Odin download mode and when you do the tarball (your term) you will get the message that said no pit file.

New logic board and now the phone is good as new, thanks

I am in the same boat.

Woke up this morning and phone is on "Galaxy Note 2" screen. Does not even get past the Sprint and Samsung boot anims. Try to boot into TWRP to send some commands and disable Xposed, I did some playing with Xposed last night but when I went to sleep, I had done multiple restarts and tests w/ Xposed modules and all was sound. Put it on the charger and slept. Until this morning!

Not able to send and ADB commands to phone during boot.

I can get into dl mode with Odin but so far the recovery files I've tried to flashed have returned either FAILED or NO PIT PARTITION error.

Kchannel9.. so you got a new motherboard. Were you ever able to recover any of your data off your old motherboard?
