    Hello guys !!!

    I have rooted my phone and I have change roms many times.
    However, the last time I did it my phone stuck on O2 screen without doing anything. I have tried other roms to see if there is a problem with the specific rom but this did not solve my problem. By the way I can go to recovery mode without problem !

    Can you please help me ???

    Did you wipe data in recovery? Can you restore a backup?

    Well when you nandroid backup, it would say "Skipping SD-ect partition" if there wasn't one. Do you explicitly remember partitioning your sd card to use a2sd+?

    I think that's what it says. No I do not remember partitioning my sd card to use a2sd+. Do you think there is a solution to my problem ?

    I'm sure there is but as I haven't ascertained the cause, I cannot be certain on what that solution is. I need to know why before I give you how.

    What roms have you had working and not working please?

    I had leedroid before and I have also used MIUI for a while !!!
    Then I tried many others to see if they work but none worked.
    Now, even if I flash leedroid or MIUI, they do not work !!!

    Thanks for your help and your time by the way !!! :D

    What recovery have you got?
    What is the PVT version listed on the Hboot screen?
    Have you successfully restored backups before?
    Every changed recovery?
    How did you root?

    PVT4 with S-ON
    and HBOOT-0.93.0001

    I have successfully restored backups before this last thing happened !
    I rooted my phone using a software tool (sorry I do not remember the name) which does the rooting for you !

    Have you got ADB set up on your PC then?

    I need you to connect desire in recovery, start adb shell and use the command
    Code (Text):
    1. cat /proc/mtd
    Follow the red link in my sig for an adb FAQ if you're not sure how to use it.

    Need the results here please

    i reckon there was an ext partition created and for whatever reason its now dead
    did you do format sdcard from within the phone? or do anything else regarding the sdcard

    recovery would only through that error when trying to restore if it was looking for an ext partition to restore sd-ext to.
    both leedroid and miui use a2sd+ by default (granted both have non a2sd versions but generally they use a2sd+)

    Ok thanks. That's what I was hoping for. Now that's out of the way, in the root memory faq in my Sig, go through and check the partitions with gparted

    Boot recovery> mounts and storage>Mount USB mass storage (stay in this screen)

    Boot Gparted CD. Plug usb in just after you set up keyboard settings before gparted launches.

    Should see it then.
