    I have a Samsung Galaxy Young S5360 where the boot is stuck and doesn’t get past the Samsung logo.

    In recovery mode, I have applied the wipe data/factory reset but the problem doesn’t get solved.

    In recovery mode when entering ‘reboot system now’ I get the error E: failed to mount data
    E: copy_log_files_to_data : : can’t mount /data and then it just goes back to looping at startup.

    Right now I am trying recovery in ODIN Mode about which I hav eno idea, for past 1 hour screen is saying, downloading, do not turn off the target with android symbol/logo.

    Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
