    When you flash a ROM you normally lose all your data,so where did you restore it to?

    I've never lost data that was on my internal storage or sd card from flashing any rom. also as I mentioned, the stuff is there somewhere, in settings, storage I see under other that the amount of gb's coincides with how much stuff I have...problem is it all used to be under sd card, now it's somewhere else and I don't know where that is...

    If you came from 4.1,your data is in data/media and you can find it with a root file browser(like root explorer)

    4.2 and up changed the sd card location to data/media/0, wich is why your sd card appears empty :)

    WOOT!!!!! THANK YOU SCOTTY!!!! that ish was driving me bonkers!!! I'll have to put solved in the thread title...I can do that right? One other question about 4.3 if you can answer it...my gmail won't let me open attachments anymore since this Rom...when I click on the attachment ...which is a voice note...it says there is no app that can open the attachment...never had the issue on 4.1...same thing happens when the same attachment was sent via mms...not e error message, but clicking on it to play does nothing...are these things part of the upgrade to 4.3??? seem more like problems than progress if so...I've rebooted reflashed, cleared data, uninstalled and reinstalled each app to no avail...restoring 4.1.2 makes it all work again...smh...thanks again for helping

    Awsome! Glad you found your files. Unfortunately I don't have a good answer for you on your gmail issue. Hopefully one of the others can provide some info on that... What Rom are you running?
