Root formatted sd card (dumby) please help

whoops is right. but your system still should be working unless you had link2sd or something like that set up. What happened when you tried restarting? Get hung up on Samsung screen, bootloop, etc? Did you try booting into CWM (vol. down, back, power keys)?

Can you get into CWM? If so, I know there are a few CWM backups people have uploaded here; you can flash those.

Otherwise, you may need to flash the pre-rooted tar file with odin, then flash the CWM and go from there. Good luck "dumby". :)

ODIN won't fix anything, it just flashes CWM to the phone.

Put a ROM on your SD card, boot into CWM, and flash it. Next time make a back-up of your SD card before you start messing around with anything.

oh man i dont have any way to put a rom on my sd card. sooo... is there any way maybe i can put it back to stock like i just got it out da box?

So, go to a store and pick up a card reader for cheap, or a MicroSD to SD adapter and use a digital camera or something.

No way to put it back to stock without being able to flash the stock ROM to the phone to fix your error, and you need to put the ROM on the SD card for that.

my buddy got a spare micro sd im emailing him the roms he gonna download them im gonna go get the card and fix this mess. thanks for all the help i was trippin

To simply things, if you have access to a computer, just download any rom and cwm you want (depending on your preference) connect your phone via USB, boot into cwm, go to mounts and storage and navigate to mount USB storage (or something of that sort) you will be able to move what you want to your SD that way. Flash whatever you chose and your back in action
