There's no need to do a full wipe when rooting, a full wipe only needs to be done when changing roms. I would recommend booting into recovery mode and clearing cache and dalvik (in advanced). Then just reboot and you should be good.

Its always better to do a full wipe when changing roms. It stops the chance of things from the old ROM interfering with the new.

Is this from recovery or the CWM app? Whichever, try the alternative.

It's not 'bricked' as it still works. You've got a problem with your internal storage partition (/sdcard) though, as it's obviously not being recognised. Do you have an external SD card installed too?

Am I correct in thinking you have the M250K? If you do and used cfroot to root that could be your problem. If you do have the M250K try flashing this custom kernel with Odin

No need to thank me caloyzki... just send me a box of aspirin.

You didn't look inside the files, did you? There's a .tar.md5 file inside each of them, which is one of the file formats recognised by Odin.

caloyzki, caloyzki, caloyzki! Be reasonable... do it my way.

Download your firmware from the source I gave you in my post #18 above:-

Skywanker should be fine. That's from Intratech. I have a feeling his files are self extracting 7zips.

I tried that link and don't know what I got.

EDIT OK... I'll let you off this time caloyzki!

The skywanker link I clicked on was a kernel download in, as Shotty pointed out, a self extracting .zip file.

Funny, I downloaded them and found the content just fine. What did you open them with? If you don't have 7-Zip, WinZip opens .7z archives just fine.

Intratech even has the following on Page 1 of his 'Official Firmware' thread:

Quote:
I've started to use 7Zip archives instead of self-executable ones to accommodate members using Macs and Linux as their primary OS. You can get 7Zip for free and it handles multiple formats

guys, shotgun,slug,hawker, and ironass thanks for the help. i re-flashed my stock firmware now, and it goes back to how i bought my phone, root was gone to, but the SU icon still there but i cannot use it anymore.and ofcourse that is because of ur help guys.

now am i gonna do the root again and hopefully after i root my phone when i do the nandroid back up it will backup my phone. because that is the main problem why i un-root the phone. hope for the second time everything works fine. il let you know guys.

and btw the reason i cannot open the .7Z file is because i dont have any file to zip the .7Z file. and i download the link above and now i can zip the .7Z file now.

guys, i think my phone is rooted again now, i have SU and CWM icons now. but how come i downloaded the Root Checker from the google play and when i click the check now the status is NOT ROOTED. i download again the Root CHecker Basic i click Verify Root Access and the results: is Congratulations! This device has root access!

my question is which one of the two is reliable?
