I just got root with Unrevoked and S-OFF with AlphaRev. I partitioned my SD card in GParted as following.
Part 1: 4096 MB ext3 Part 2: 25842 MB fat32
The card is a 32 GB SD card. I intended to have 4 GB reserved for apps and such. Now I am trying to do a NANDroid backup using the new ClockWorkMod AlphaRev Recovery 18.104.22.168. But it keeps failing and says that /sdcard can't be mounted.
I tried to navigate to Mounts and storage, and then Mount /sdcard but it gives me an error.
CWM-AlphaRev Recovery v22.214.171.124 E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0) (Invalid argument) Can't mount /sdcard //I attempted mounting it manually here.// E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0) (Invalid argument) Error mounting SDCARD:!
I noticed that, after partitioning the SD card and rebooting the phone and loading Windows, when I clicked to do a safe unmount of USB drive in Windows there was a message in Android that said it was safe to unmount the SD card now. ????....
And then I went into recovery mode in Android and found out that it couldn't do a backup because it couldn't mount the SD card. Is my SD card damaged or what? Do I have to do some kind of data/cache wipe first?
I had the phone shut down since the last attempt, just to make sure that the SD card really gets mounted when booting up. But that didn't help at all.
I tried a solution I found over at XDA forums.
In CMD, go to dir C:\Android\android-sdk\Tools Type: path C:\Android\android-sdk\Platform-tools)
Input "fastboot oem enableqxdm 0"
But I tried this and it says
< waiting for device > in my CMD prompt and nothing happens. Does the phone really communicate with the computer in this mode? My ClockWorkMod screen has changed to an icon of a white software box with a blue android mascot next to it. So it looks like it is in this so called fastboot mode now.
C:\>adb devices * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully * List of devices attached SH08KPL03467 recovery C:\>fastboot oem enableqxdm 0 < waiting for device >
So it looks like the daemon was not running but the phone definitely communicates with the computer. Do I have to press some button? I tried mounting the SD card again and it still doesn't work.
