Can't mount sd-ext
I'm having a problem restoring from a ROM flash that doesn't seem to be working.
I am using a ViewSonic G tab which I had originally rooted to CryonGen7 (bittrix-beta-06.43f-gb). That was the first time that I had rooted my tablet and it worked fine.
Today I attempted to root the device to VegN 7.0 (VEGAn-GE-7.0.0-RC1-Harmony-signed). I followed directions, wiped the cache, data and the dalvik. I performed the update using CW and once I rebooted I waited approximately 15 minutes for the system to rebuild the dalvik database and cache. Since that was 3 times the required 5 minute wait, I figured something had gone wrong and powered down the tablet.
Now the problem that I have is that I neglected to copy a rescue update.zip file anywhere on the internal SDcard and when I attempt to mount the ext-sd card which has the rescue update.zip I get an error:
E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblkOp2
(No such file or directory)
Error mount SDEXT:!
I pulled the sd-ext card and mounted it in my windows system so I added the directory structure, but it wasn't recognized. So then I thought I'd just reformat the sd-ext card and see if the system would add it but I received the following errors:
No app2sd partition found. Skipping format of /sd-ext
I have also attempted to mount an external USB flash drive without success. Any suggestions on how best to proceed at this point?
I appreciate the help from anyone that takes the time to reply.
