    Default Soft-Bricked My Phone and I Can't Load New ROM

    I have soft-bricked my phone. I can boot into my recovery, and I have even have been able to flash a new recovery, but I can't install a new ROM through recovery. I forgot to make a backup so that is not an option. Any idea of what I can do to make my phone operable. I don't mind going back to stock. I tried install VipeROM and CM 10 and neither worked.

    You should be able to flash a new rom if you can get into recovery. Is there an error message that comes up when you try to flash? And if so, what does it say?

    Have you tried a different cable?

    I can't replicate the exact error message but I got an unable to mount SDCARD0 (internal SD card message).

    I also got this error when trying to reflash ViperROM

    Did you ever figure it out?

    Are you doing a full wipe before you try to flash? You should always wipe everything including the /system partition when you flash another rom. If it won't let you mount the internal SD then put the rom on your external with a computer then put it back into your phone and flash it.

    Do you use TWRP or CWM recovery?
