1. Request the 100% suitable Stock ROM from OEM/carrier.

2.Completely wipe phone ( erase all partitiions except boot & efs ) before flashing Stock ROM on it

3. ADB sideload Stock ROM - as I already told you in a previous post here - unless a official Flash Tool what is compliant with your phone exists

uh sorry for late reply ;)

soo i already done searching and fixing some problems of the problems but no success i already flash all the stock rom https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/archive/miui/aries/

but still no success i already tried re-doing the tips you gived but still no success, INTERNAL STORAGE 0mb , i searched every thing in the whole Internet, still no success, soo i guess its my fault for not caring it.


The rom that started WW4: https://www.getdroidtips.com/mokee-os-8-1-oreo-mi-2-mi2s/

i guess i cant blame the Dev :)

but good news because i can access only 1 rom : https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/rom-unofficial-5-1-1-cyanogenmod-12-1.3032286/

but the only problem was the internal storage , soo i check if theres a storage in setting but boom its shows my internal storage 25GB storage but i cant install some apps nor use my camera and cant access my files in any file manager, it show no external storage available, soo how can i access my internal storage i cant even put a sdcard because i doesn't have a sdcard slot?

The Xiamoi MI 2 by default got shipped with 16 GB / 32 GB internal storage memory . Assumed your phone came with 32 GB, and after re-flashing Stock ROM now it shows to have only 25 GB internal storage memory, looks to me that the re-flashed ROM only makes use of 25 GB internal storage memory or some partitions what were present before re-flashing didn't get erased, some GBs of phone's internal storage memory is still allocated by useless stuff.

it show no external storage available, soo how can i access my internal storage i cant even put a sdcard because i doesn't have a sdcard slot?
Wondering why you are trying to access any external storage memory if no SD-card slot is present? Tthat understand who wants ...

i think if there is any option in setting to mount internal storage then click it to get your internal storage working. about 25gb avaliable so there may be 9 gb of space used by system that means total space is 32 gb and 25 gb is free space.

All partitions of an Android system - what by default is housed on internal storage memory - get mounted when device boots up. If Android OS successfully started up then you know it has been settled.

Here a list of standard internal memory partitions on Android phones and tablets:

  • /boot
  • /system
  • /recovery
  • /data
  • /cache
  • /misc
  • /vendor
  • /efs
In addition, there are the SD card partitions.

  • /sdcard
  • /sd-ext
Note that only /sdcard is found in all Android devices and /sd-ext is present only in select devices

More info here:

My last 2 cents here:
If you run
Code:
adb devices
adb shell "df"
you will get the sizes of all filesystems in human readable numbers.

hey soo if i go to twrp and go to wipe advancef wipe then press internal storage and click repair or change file system it says invalid partition selection soo that means........ or another example soo my current twrp is 3.3.1-0 soo i downgraded to https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/recovery-aries-unofficial-twrp-recovery-2-8-1-for-mi2-2s.2962332/ and if select my internal storage repair or change file system it will remove the invalid partition selection in version 3.3.1-0
soo now if i click it it shows my internal storage into 0mb and if i go to data it shows my current internal storage size, soo that means my internal storage space turned into my data space?????
