NANDJ_ Find flash media and keep out ERROR FIX!
If you are ever messing around with your iPhone 5 and put it back together, you may come across the "cannot find flash media" or "FIND flash media and keep out" error —and this will not let you boot properly. It gives you the red screen of death, but it can also just give you the error code and then restart or just show the Apple logo and then restart.
I found the fix, finally. I believe I am the first to find this, and it is relatively simple to fix. This is probably my first post on the internet that can actually help a majority of people that I've seen with this error and no fix for it yet. So from what I've experienced it's due to your front camera sensor assembly connector being damaged. The connectors on these things are extremely fragile and the connector seems to bow like a banana fairly easy.
So here is a way to try to narrow down the problem. Hook up only the LCD/Digitizer connector only, and "hard reset your phone" and see if it starts back up. If it does, then you've found out that it's for sure the front camera connector.
There are 2 parts to this 3rd connector. The Proximity SENSOR and the FRONT CAMERA are soldered together like an assembly. I highly recommend purchasing the assembly (front camera and proximity sensor) and not just the front camera flex cable, as it is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to install. And I mean DIFFICULT.
!@#$ dude, I was getting that error so I opened up my phone to check it out, no signs of water damage or anything, go over to a genius bar and they run the standard restore (with a dfu attempt) and get an error, so they try it a second time and get that kernel error, some lady took the phone to the back and comes back to me in 10min and says your phone has water damage!@!@!@!@ i almost went berserk, I knew there was no water damage i just looked at an indicator a few hours before. She tried to make me pay 220$, I took my phone back home and found this post. Was skeptical but tried this idea as I had nothing to lose, I left the last connector (front camera connector) off and what do you know my phone booted. Many thanks man saved me from my injustice. Dumb lady should get fired. Never expected this from Apple.

Tyler i took 3 hours tonight solving this problem.
After mounting and dismounting cables, see threads on internet, pray god, i resolved.
IT'S AN ASSEMBLY ISSUE.
The proximity sensor has a belzel around. When you unmount from the old lcd assembly
to mount in the new one, may be you mounted upsidedown, this shortcircuits the
proximity sensor leads.
Try and tell me :D good night
I think this is my problem. so the solution is just to buy the new thing?
Yep, worked like a charm for me by buying a new one. No idea how this happens but I know that replacing the front camera etc works :)
