    Hey guys,
    Yesterday I decided to install the CyanogenMod 12.1 rom on my LG L70, it's unlocked, I rooted it successfully and wiped, but when I go to recovery mode and try to apply update from external sd, my phone says "e:failed to mount /sdcard (invalid argument)". I tried everything I could. I thought the problem was my SD card but I tried 3 different SD's and nothing changed.

    My phone's specifications:
    Model: LG-D325g8
    Kernel: 3.4.0+
    Software: V10d-SCA-XXX

    Do you have any solutions?
    Thanks!

    which recovery did you installed on your phone?

    Cyanogen Recovery or TWRP or Philz?

    Hi, please follow the instructions given in the CM12.1 OP: http://androidforums.com/threads/un...12-1-for-lg-l70-d320-d320n-d325-ms323.912225/

    As Imntrix suggested, you need to change your stock recovery to TWRP. Links are given in the thread I've linked.

    Guys, thanks for answering
    I changed recovery to TWRP, but when I try to enter recovery mode (that should be TWRP), a purple screen that says DBI Err Fatal appears, as if TWRP is damaged or something.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Yes, I did that successfully.
    I don't really know what to do now... should I try harder to install CyanogenMod 12.1/13.0 or leave things as they are, with stock rom and Android 4.4.2? Are those new roms that good? What's better in them?

    Everything's better with CM12.1 or 13 than stock ROM :) I'm serious.
    In my opinion, CM12.1 is stable now and works without problems. It's faster, more convenient, better looking, more configurable, more secure, almost perfect :) Did I mentioned it's damn fast? :D

    You might have flashed a wrong aboot file while unlocking bootloader - check this thread and try to replace your aboot with the correct one.
