    If you were stock and want to stay stock, you'll probably have to flash an RUU, but that'll overwrite your CWM recovery and you could loose your data. If you were running a ROM, just reflash it. You basically just formatted your OS partition, data and everything else is still there.

    Or, if you have a Clockwork backup of your system before you formatted it, do an advanced restore and just select system. That'll just restore the system partition of your backup without overwriting anything else.

    If you have cwm recovery, either restore a backup if you have one or flash a new ROM.

    Talking Accidently formatted system in CWM recovery, help!

    I was trying to flash a 4.0.4 system update in CWM. After receiving installation abort several times. I decided to erase all of the data not realizing that format/system erases the operating system. I also did not make a backup. Now I'm stuck on the LG I am also able to access the Clockwork Recovery menu And also I've the latest version CM9 FOR LG E400 IN MY SD card But CWM Doesn't read the zip file . and I'm scared I will never be able to access my phone again. Please help!
