    If you can get it to mount to your computer via CWM recovery then you can move over a new ROM to flash. Last I remember though the option to wipe data/factory reset should NOT wipe your entire device. It should only wipe data, cache, dalvik cache but not cripple the device. Basically its the same as doing a factory reset from within Settings in Android, it resets things but doesn't actually format the device removing the OS, etc.

    Are you sure you didn't check/select or pick the option to format?

    Tnaks Paul for your great info. I think so that its the same as doing a factory reset from within Settings in Android. but why doesn't its OS boot?

    Do i need change recovery CWM to TWRP ? yeah I'm sure I didn't pick/check format option.

    No you don't need to change recoveries unless you want to but from within CWM it should have an option like a built in file explorer (TWRP has one). If you do can you see if your device was indeed wiped, like internal storage, etc. ?

    Next if everything was wiped and you have no ROM on the device to flash you will need to mount the device either thru the recovery option or by using ADB and push a new ROM & kernel over to flash.

    Sorry didn't get back to you sooner on this. Any further luck?

    As for mounting there should be an option to mount internal storage or /sdcard/. That would be your ticket to placing a new ROM on your device to flash.
