Default

The problem is that your /system is not ext2 and therefore it cannot be mounted by the recovery. The solution is to convert your /System to ext2 through format (in CWM recovery and in the SamdroidMod one, based on the CWM you have that option). Afterwards you can just install whichever mod you want.
