With TWRP, on almost every operation I get

Failed to mount '/preload' (Invalid argument)

My device currently can not boot, and this may have something to do with it, /preload is currently in /etc/fstab, I can see the entry here with

/dev/block/mmcblk0p16 /preload ext4 rw 0 0

When I try to mount it, I get

mount preload/
mount: mounting /dev/block/mmcblk0p16 on /preload failed: Invalid argument

Is there anyway to fix this problem?

From my recovery.log, I have

/preload | /dev/block/mmcblk0p16 | Size: 0MB Used: 0MB Free: 0MB Backup Size: 0MB
   Flags: Can_Be_Mounted Can_Be_Wiped IsPresent

I'm trying to flash LineageOS, but I'm really just curious about resolving this error message.

  • What about flashing full firmware with Odin ? – esQmo_ May 26 '18 at 5:57
  • @esQmo_ you mean flashing Lineage OS from Odin? Is that even possible? – Evan Carroll May 26 '18 at 15:26
  • You haven't mentioned anywhere that you were running LineageOS – esQmo_ May 26 '18 at 15:27
  • I'm not, I'm trying to run it. I also didn't mention that I was trying to run OEM which afaik is the only rom that Odin can flash? – Evan Carroll May 26 '18 at 15:38
  • Right. So go on and flash stock firmware through Odin – esQmo_ May 26 '18 at 15:43
