After following this guide and giving my partition the proper GUID, i can't access it.

Is there a way to recover the container reference its supposed to have or at least a way for me to extract data from it?

$diskutil list

/dev/disk0 (internal, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *251.0 GB   disk0
   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk0s1
   2:                 Apple_APFS                         209.2 GB   disk0s2
   3:                 Apple_APFS Container disk1         41.6 GB    disk0s3

disk0s2 is the one i "fixed"

$diskutil verifyVolume disk0s2

Started file system verification on disk0s2

  • Did you try asking on the guide page? – Matt Sephton Apr 16 '18 at 16:30

    I thought i did but it looks like its not showing up there. And now i don't have enough rep to comment. – SPatrickApps Apr 16 '18 at 17:41
  • When changing your GUID, did you use the correct size for your partition (the number after -s in the command) or did you use the same number as in the guide you linked ?I had a problem similar to yours and the way to fix it was to use the proper size. Also could you update your question with the result of the gpt -r show disk0 command ? – Dorlafo Apr 17 '18 at 21:43
  • I used the correct size. – SPatrickApps Apr 17 '18 at 21:48
  • I am also having this issue. Any idea how to fix? – Pedro Paulo Amorim Jun 12 '18 at 13:51
