    Trying to zero out laf partition to access cwm but I get a no space left on device error when giving command
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/laf
    Plenty of space on internal sdcard and ive tried a couple different drivers.
    Stock rooted virgin mobile zv3

    From what I've read, that is sometimes normal. Did you check to see if you have access to fastboot?

    Are you rooted and did you type su before typing out these commands?

    Im not really sure whats left. You are the only person who has reported this problem. So you tried other drivers, made sure to run the commands as su and are rooted. Enabled adb debugging in developer options? The only thing that command does is erase a partition. The ran out of space error means nothing, you are erasing a partition, not copying it.

    You can try this command and specify the partition number instead of the other command.

    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15

    I'll try this out later. Might be noted I have tried factory resets before command and same error. I have enabled USB debugging done everything right I've rooted multiple phones before this, just not seeing the problem with this one

    Are you doing this via terminal emulator our adb shell?

    I got same thing on a stock rooted Boost zv3, but it was not an actual problem. Had no problems using fastboot or flashing zv4 ROM.

    You may be confusing download mode and fastboot mode (which is easy to do because the fastboot screen uses both names).

    To activate fastboot after wiping laf partition:
    1) Turn phone off
    2) Hold Vol+ key
    3) Plug USB cable between phone and computer
    4) Phone should turn on and show a text screen that says "Download mode", and the last line should say "Fastboot processing commands". If you see this, then fastboot is working.

    but, once in download mode...and "processing commands"...how do we fastboot? lol what do we do?

    You process fastboot commands through a command line the same way you would adb.

    When booting download mode I get screen that's says "download mode" and press up until you see download mode but nothing about fastboot commands

    right now you just load cwm and you have it until update. but with this phone you still have to fastboot boot cwm. So its kinda useless once you update. You might need cwm to change some basic shit like LTE icon (all ive seen). But right now, you arent missing out on anything because these guys (especially this phone on this site) dont realize they really never give any detail for even experienced users. Not flaming them AT ALL though. Ive said it before, these guys are doing the legwork Ill clear shit up for cats having trouble.
