Default [Q]Cache clear in recovery mode won't work?

Hi
When I to wipe my cache in recovery mode (in the Samsung Galaxy-Q (same as the Samsung Gravity Smart))
And it took like half a second, so I figure that there that there's something wrong with it.
There's a link below that goes to XDA-Developers forum which has a picture.
If you couldn't read the text, (I was using like a 2 megapixel camera), here's what the important part is:

-- Appling Multi-CSC --

-- Wiping cache...
Formatting CACHE:...
unmount(/cache) attempt 1 (Unknown error: 0) rc=0
Cache wipe complete

Is it because my phone is rooted? No, because I've tried unrooting my phone and trying. It didn't work.
But I think it's because my micro SD card is in it. If that's the problem, will after clearing cache delete my shortcuts?


Thanks for reading,
Drew

Did you ever get this cache issue resolved?

I have seen the same thing when I was trying to flash a stock rom on the Gravity Smart T589.
I'm beginning to think it’s the recovery image but have not found one on the web for this phone and CWM says it’s not a supported phone so I haven’t dared try since I wouldn’t have a image to go back to.

An update would be nice from someone??

Thanks

No, I haven't fixed it.
Also, you can get stock recovery.img from samfirmware.com and can flash it
steps:
1.Make an account (required for downloading the recovery.img)
2.Download the SGH-T589R firmware files (SGH-T589 files are packed as a tar.md5 file)
3.open the .zip in the firmware.zip
4.drag "recovery.img" to where you have ADB
5.open ADB (Android Debug Bridge, also, for windows you need to set a path. google search it)
6.in ADB, issue these commands:
[HIGH]
tar -H ustar -c recovery.img > CWM-Recovery.tar
md5sum -t CWM-Recovery.tar >> CWM-Recovery.tar
mv CWM-Recovery.tar CWM-Recovery.tar.md5
[/HIGH]
7.Open Odin 4.40 USA (the odin version for our phone), then put your phone into download mode (turn phone off, then hold both volume buttons while holding the power button until it says "Downloading")
8.select the OPS file
9.Checkmark "One Package"
10.Select the STOCK-Recovery.tar.md5 file
11.Beside the checkmark "reset time (sec)", change "200" to "50"
12.Select "Checksum Fail" (also, once you select the recovery, you will get a warning. ignore the warning.)
13.Wait for reboot! (once the timer stops, you can disconnect your phone)

Also, I've read someone flashed a wrong CWMRecovery from ROM manager (he flashed a samsung one) and his bootloader got fried. he fixed it by swapping it's motherboard.

Smile Clear Cache in recovery mode error could be a false positive??

Ok, I was a bit tired the other day so some of this info may not be accurate but this is what I remember.

I used the stock rom and the de bloated stock rom by way of the default recovery image.
Used the de bloated rom first, and then my daughter informed me that she was missing about 4 apps and so I flashed the stock rom. All this time her settings, wallpaper, etc. was still in the phone but I didn’t want all this because I felt it was part of the memory hog issue and besides we have a titanium backup and root.

Since I’ve flashed three other brands of phones before I thought all I needed to do was erase the cash files using the recovery, at which time I got this error: “unmount(/cache) attempt 1 (Unknown error: 0) rc=0”.

I left the phone in recovery mode while I did some searching for cause of the error and found this post.

I later decided to reboot the phone and maybe delete the cache another way, but when the phone came back on all her previous settings were gone as though I had done a system restore to manufactures default, and we had more memory available.

I was able to restore just the items we wanted with our titanium backup, and then setup the external SD card for an ext2 partition and install “Link2sd”, all is working great now. We also use “Nobloat free” so she can remove the apps she doesn’t want, this way she’s not angry with her old man for removing something he wasn’t supposed to.

Now I’m wondering if this error is just a false positive.

I’m not a SW designer, just a tinkerer and thought my experience would help others.
I could not have done this without those who have posted what they have done along with the downloadable tools and ROM’s.

Hope I have helped.
Thanks
