    i not sure if this is the right place, but ill put it here anyway:

    i recently was trying to flash a rom on my samsung galaxy mini. in the instructions i was told to 'wipe data' and 'wipe cache partition' before running the rom. however, when i tried to reboot my system, i just got a white screen. i can still access recovery mode, and when i enter it, i get this message:

    (invaled argument)

    cant mount system partition.
    installation abotred.

    does anyone have any sugestions? is my phone bricked? i read somwhere that theres a chance if i can enter recovery mode, but what do i do from there?!?!

    Umm no .
    Link me to the "4.0.3" ROM
    and by recovery I meant .DO you have Samsung Recovery (bml utils ) or ClockworkMod recovery ?

    Your link is spelled wrong (an extra http://), but I checked out the site. I would make the assumption you are rooted and have installed Clockwork Recovery? If you haven't done either, installing this ROM will not work. Head on over to this thread if you haven't rooted:

    Check out the link I posted. It will show you how to flash Clockwork. Before (and after installing Clockwork) you start flashing any ROMs, PLEASE create a complete back (Nandroid) of your phone.

    em... how should i do that now? could i do it by just putting it on sd card and doing things in recovery mode?

    Be sure to follow the directions on how to install Clockwork Mod. Also, do not go the route of ROM Manager as the guide says the Mini is not compatible.
    If you don't mind, I'm going to move this to the All Things Root section of the Galaxy Mini. You'll get a lot more device specific help there.
    Good luck!

    Odin is the flashing tool .
    You will need to go in Download mode to flash custom recovery .
    Instructions ,software and Odin are available in the above link

    No ,you cant put ClockworkMod in SD card .
    Odin is essential .

    Which Operating System are you using ?

    ok .
    I wanted to know your OS of Computer .
    When you attach a Samsung device in Odin Mode ,New drivers are installed .
    If they aren't ,please turn on automatic updates for drivers .

    The Drivers are essential for Phone to PC connection

    They should look like MSM7227 drivers or similar .
    You will get a yellow COM port 4 or something similar in the Odin Box after drivers are succesfully installed .
