Stuck at Samsung Logo, Any Ideas?

    I have a stock Samsung Proclaim that is stuck at the Samsung Logo when it is turned on. I would like to flash "[NANDROID] Proclaim Return to Stock, NO ROOT". When I try to install CWM using Odin the phone displays an error in red and the bottom of the Downloading page - 'RECOVERY' verification failed. Odin shows (succeed 1 / failed 0) I have installed [STOCK] Proclaim recovery with no errors but nothing changes the with the phone. Also, when get to the stock recovery there is an error displayed twice in red  E:failed to mount /data (Invalid argument).
    I am guessing that some critical data (drive space)  has been corrupted. If anyone has any ideas on how to restore this phone to working condition I would like to try them.
    I had a backup proclaim that I found on ebay some time ago just for this occasion so I'm not sweating this problem but is would be fun to fix it.

    Thanks

    Sounds like the recovery file you flashed was corrupted, is this the only custom recovery you can find? If not, download another and give that a shot.

    To me it sounds like you accidentally repartitioned your device. I have the files here somewhere to fix it but they may be lost on my hard drive.

    Thanks irishmmike and Motorhead for your response. Here is an update:

    I have been able to boot the phone about 50% of the time by doing this:
    When Samsung logo appears I tap the Menu, Home, Back, Search button area randomly and repeatedly and plug in USB cable connected to my PC at the other end. About 30 seconds later the tracfone logo appears. I continue to randomly tap the buttons. Sometimes the phone vibrates and boots to "safe Mode", sometimes it boots to normal.
    Once the home screen appears 50% of the time I get these warnings: (over and over and over)
    Activity TwLauncher (in application TwLauncher) is not responding.
    Force close or wait

    Activity Hangouts (process.com.google.android.talk) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.
    Force close or report

    Activity Youtube (process.com.google.android.Youtube) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.
    Force close or report

    Activity Google Play Music (process.com.google.android.music:main) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.
    Force close or report

    Activity Google Play (process.com.google.android.gms) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.
    Force close

    Activity Messaging (process.com.google.android.mms) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.
    Force close

    Activity Google Play services (process.com.google.android.gms) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.
    Force close


    During the time of these warnings I can connect the phone as a mass storage device and I have full access to read and write to /sdcard

    The other 50% of the time I can uninstall apps and even do a factory reset, BUT, after that, the factory reset fails and all the apps that I uninstalled are still installed.

    I have tried to flash CWM after Factory reset, before it reboots, and I still get the 'RECOVERY' verification failed error that causes CWM flash to fail. Flash counter does not increment.

    I can get to stock recovery (without errors E:failed to mount /data (Invalid argument).) if I remove the battery for ~5 minutes. I can perform Factory Reset and Wipe Cashe. CWM flash fails and Factory Reset fails.

    I guess, I'm hoping, that phone performance is so random that maybe one of my multiple CWM flashes will succeed. And I can then install the "[NANDROID] Proclaim Return to Stock, NO ROOT"

    Thanks for reading and any suggestions.

    Also, any changes to settings only appear to change in the settings menus display. For instance, I put phone in development mode, Check box is unchecked, but when the USB cable is plugged in I am asked to choose mass storage or charging.

    Thanks Blazer64. I haven't been able to find "viper.pit" file. Is "hawk.pit" the same thing?

    Update: found "illusion_arearom.pit" and flashed using Odin PIT. Success!! But no change to phone status.
