    Every custom Rom I install everything works, but my storage is some what not detected. I tried couple of file explorer apps, most folders are there. Like my download folder is there, but not all my files in that folder is showing up. And my ROMS folder, doesn't show up. I had CWM recovery, works perfectly! I recently flashed TWRP, same thing it doesn't detect everything. I haven't tried any CM base roms or AOKP roms. I tried Sense 4.2 & 4.3 the only Rom that works is stock rooted.

    Can you tell us what particular ROMs?

    Showing a subset of files is weird. But the files are still there with a stock ROM (or adb shell ls?)?

    I tried InsertCoin, Android Revolution, Trick Droid & MaximusHD
    Everything shows up on stock rooted Rom.

    What your seeing is the change in the file system from android 4.1.2 to 4.2.2
    you SDcard location actually changed in 4.2.2
    old location is /data/media
    new location is /data/media/0
    So a folder in your old /data/media/downloads
    would seem to be gone in /data/media/0/downloads

    I hope you understand what i mean

    to expand on that a little further,if you use a root file browser to navigate to data/media,then you will be able to see all your old files. when this happened to me,i was tempted to just delete data/media/0,and rename data/media to that,but im not sure if there would be wierd side affects to that or not.

    what i did was simply restore my stock 4.1 rom,and then when you look with the PC youre veiwing data/media again,so youll just need to copy the files you want to transfer to the PC. restore your 4.2 or 4.3 rom,and then connect to the pc,and drag your pics,ringtones,music,etc. back to where you want them. now theyre in data/media/0 and youre good to go unless you want to go back to 4.1 :eek:

    you can alternately just copy/paste your files from data/media to data/media/0 with root explorer or equivalent root file manager,but it was a little confusing to me keeping track of where i was when doing that. i fonund copying the files to the PC then back to be a bit easier.

    hope i didnt just confuse you further. :p

    I'm going to try that, thanks! Is there a good 4.2 or 4.3 Sense rom you could recommend?

    I personally use CleanRom 5 from the AT&T Root forums it works fine for T-mobile also
