    Did you use Odin at all?
    Odin wouldn't care if its formatted it would just put your phone back to working order.

    Seems like you have a Transform Ultra....... This is the Samsung Prevail section and ROM's are usually device specific...... Means, you cant use a ROM made for the Prevail on another device.......

    try installing CT on it and see if it works, it will format system to ext4.

    i used honeybread mod to see if it would help my friends phone prefrom better. thats how it ended up in a different format i think its also a ext4 formatted system i dont know if something with the script in it did something or what.

    side note did a odin back to stock nonroot its running even with formatting as it is now. very odd as the backup i made wont load with this error???

    Anytime you use a stock Odin image it puts the file system back to rfs so it's no longer ext4 if you used Odin unless you flash another rom.

    im at a loss i figured it would of switched right back like you guys are saying it would. i think im gonna try different computer i think my atom n550 powered netbook aint cutting it. the scripting for odin is awesome for the prevail compared to the transform ultra. seems to hang sometimes for the transform ultra( wish there were more people over in the transform ultra :[ ) . let you guy know as soon as i get back from dropping off a friend at work if my hunch is correct for switching computers. thanks for the fast replies guys :]

    That should do it. I have never had a problem with Odin only when the file were corrupt that's the only time I had a problem. Also just try to place all the files in the correct places that's what I do. I'm up for the night so I could help as much as I can, if noone else is up.
