    I'm not sure what I did wrong, but in trying to root my wife's Christmas present, I ended up creating a doorstop. I was trying to install vampirefo's gapps-root package, but I believe I must have wiped system instead of /data. No problem, I thought - I'll just install vampirefo's ICS4.0.4 OS. The problem - CWM Recovery can't mount /sdcard.

    I've tried everything I can think of with adb and fastboot flash, but to no avail. Now all I get is the Colby logo - not even the Android bootanim. I can push and pull files to/from /sdcard, but CWM still can't mount.

    So I'm stuck with no OS. Bootloader and CWM Recovery are working, but that's it. Can anybody help me?

    What type of micro sdcard are you using?

    I will be unloading a stock 8048 with root and gapps sometime today, you need to use micro sdcard not nand to backup and restore.

    I have tried several, but no difference. A Sandisk 16gb class 4, a Sandisk 8gb cl4, a PNY 8GB CLASS crap... I also tried with no mSD installed, since I think that the /sdcard/ is referring to internal storage.

    That's GREAT! I just hope I can figure out the /sdcard/ mount situation. Thanks for your input!

    Perhaps the recovery didn't install correctly, use fastboot and reinstall the recovery.

    Here is stock rom

    You can also use fastboot to flash back stock recovery, and then flash this stock rom.

    Update: Managed to flash stock_8048_root_gapps_signed.zip by mounting /sdcard/ to /data - the rom works, has root and gapps. While in the ICS environment, I see "SDCard is mounted" in the notifications, and I can see my files in ES File Manager. I can explore both internal and external sdcard, but CWM Recovery (which I've flashed three times) still "Can't mount /sdcard" - I think this is a result of having wiped system in the first place. No, I didn't make a system dump - I mistakenly thought the good dump for the 7048 was for the 8048 (I must be a little dyslexic.) Anyway, I seem to be in desperate need of a system dump for the 8048 - specifically the system.img. I don't know if that will create the Android partitions or not, but I need to try. Any help WILL be appreciated.
