General :: Partition Layout - Exact Meaning Of Value In CWM - Partition SDCARD

Aug 26, 2012

I can't figure what is exactly meaning the Partition Sdcard values in CWM.

I have an i9000, with 8Gb of flash. Some are system reserved. Available is around 6Gb.

When i run CWM, i can partition my sdcard, but i don't see what means the possible values (for 256 to 4096).

This is obviously not ruling the space left on /sdcard mountpoint (i partition to 2048, i still have nearly 6Gb available)... So what exactly means partition sdcard from CWM ??

i can't find an answer, and i dislike, when flashing rom, following commands i don't really master (generally a partition SD 2048 / SWAP 256 or SWAP 0).

General :: Mount Arbitrary Phone Partition On PC / Change Partition Names?

Oct 8, 2013

I am running rooted stock Android 2.3 on LG E405 (no working 4.x ROMs exist for the device)

I have two questions:

1) What is the shell command to manually make android allow the PC to mount androids' (internal) partition as USB-drive? (I cannot think of right keywords to google this one up - )

2) How does android determine which partition is which (i.e. which one to remount for the PC when connecting in "USB storage" mode), beside vold.fstab and init.rc? On android 2.3 that info is not in "framework-res.apk", so where is it? In the partition table itself?

I had switched data partition with internal sdcard partition.

Here's how: Phone had a very small "/data" partition on /dev/block/mmcblk0p21 and large internal "/sdcard" partition on mmcblk0p20

So I reformatted mmcblk0p20 (ex-sdcard partition) into EXT4 and mmcblk0p21 (ex-data partition) into FAT32

Then I changed init.rc to mount mmcblk0p20 as /data type EXT4 and mmcblk0p21 as /sdcard type VFAT (mounting /sdcard was commented out in stock init.rc for some reason). This required modifying my boot image.

I have also set correct partition number in vold.fstab:

[#]dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/platform/msm_sdcc.3/mmc_host[/#]

So basicly I now have a large /data partition and small internal /sdcard. I'm able install up to a gigabyte of APKs and it works fine.

However, when I connect to my PC via USB into "USB Storage" mode, the phone seems to still try to unmount what was previously sdcard partition (/dev/block/mmcblk0p20), instead of what is NOW an sdcard partition (/dev/block/mmcblk0p21) I can still send files to the phone via wi-fi and ADB, but the ability to mount it directly would be nice.

If I accidentally select "erase internal sdcard" from storage menu, that will also most likely erase what is now my /data partition, softbricking the phone. The "factory reset" option will probably only corrupt the sdcard.

General :: SD 2nd Partition Doesn't Work - MiniTool Partition Wizard?

Oct 19, 2012

I'm have been trying to create a second partition on my sd card using miniTool Partition Wizard.But in the end I never get a 2nd partition but just a smaller first one.My approach is as follows:

insert empty SD card (FAT32, 4GB)
open miniTool Partition Wizard
right click on SD card - "Move/Resize"
choose 1gb for unallocated space after - click ok
right click on 2nd partition and choose "create"
create 2nd partition with FAT32/Ext2/Ext3 (tried all options already) and "primary" and Cluster 4KB - click ok
Apply

Afterwards my SD card is still shown as one partition, but this has just 1gb less capacity then before.Neither the Wizard nor the phone detects the 2nd partition then.

General :: How To Move /data To SDCard Using Extended Partition

Sep 29, 2013

I have a Mocordroid with scp6820a cpu rooted

First some objections:

1- The sdcard is used in vfat filesystem, move simplely /data folder to sdcard will be cause some problems
2- Copy /data to /mnt/sdcard/data will not work completly because we got some error of permission

Code:
adb shell

Code:
cp -r /data /mnt/sdcard
cp: can't create directory '/mnt/sdcard/data/misc/bluetoothd/FA:2B:B7:4E:90:59': Invalid argument
cp: can't create symlink '/mnt/sdcard/data/data/org.mariotaku.twidere/lib': Operation not permitted
cp: can't create '/mnt/sdcard/data/data/com.estrongs.android.pop/files/comm/tool_port': Operation not permitted
cp: can't create symlink '/mnt/sdcard/data/data/com.toss.removeappwidget/lib': Operation not permitted

[Code] .....

So first thing i change size of sdcard, decreasing the partition size, and add a second partition with 3 Gbytes using ext2. To do this

Unmount the sdcard in settings>storage>unmount sdcard. I need discover where is the partitions

Code:

fdisk /dev/block/mmcblk0

[Code] ....

For secure i reboot device, and umount card again. So format the second partition

Code:
mke2fs -t ext2 -m0 -b4096 /dev/block/mmcblk0p2

And reboot again. This was hopeful action that it would recognize the card. But not ...

Code:
# mkdir /mnt/sdext
mount -t ext2 /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /mnt/sdext
mount: No such device
mount -t ext2 /dev/block/vold/179:2 /mnt/sdext
mount: No such device

In My Epic Fail I was not successful

BEFORE that I wrote i try several tentactivies, apps but i m thinking that use adb will be the more better.

What is the best way, my internal device have less than 200 MB internal, so is too little !!! Maybe i will need change fstab or init scripts.

General :: Mounting Second Partition Of SDCARD As Internal Memory?

Aug 17, 2012

my internal SDCARD is corrupted and the /data partition is unusable.

My device is i9003 and it's running on MIUI at the moment. By default MIUI didn't detect my external SD or my internal SD but after editing "vold.fstab" I was able to mount the first partition of my external SDCARD as external memory and everything was good, I could finally use the camera and pretty much do everything else.

But I was still unable to mount the second partition of my external SDCARD as my internal memory which meant none of my messages could be saved and the phone would pretty much go back to factory settings after a reboot, this apparently is because the /data partition (present on the internal memory) stores all the user data such as the time, the theme I'm using, etc and not having a /data partition meant none of these settings were really saved.

Having no internal memory also means I cannot install any apps such as Link2SD.

Moving on, after many hours of googling I found out that it might not be possible to mount the internal memory using "vold.fstab" and the only way to do it could be by mounting the memory manually during init.

I want to use the second partition of my external SDCARD as internal memory, this is likely to solve all my problems and make my phone usable again.

General :: How To Delete Partition 4 And Extend Partition 3

Jan 14, 2013

I have bought a cheap chinese phone that had a 4g rom. 512mb is mapped to data as p3 and p4 is mapped to internal storage which is 2g.

I have managed to work out how to delete partition4 and extend partition3 as they follow on from each other.
However how do I remove all links to it in the system as it still tries to mount it on boot even though it isn't there.

I have removed the line from vold.fstab and that just crashed the external and internal sdcards and the storage section inside the system settings.

General :: Changing Ext4 Partition To Swap Without Having To Format Entire SDCard?

Apr 27, 2013

One of devs from my device had told us that he'll move system and data images from sdcard to SD ext, but actually he left before doing this so now I'm stuck with useless 5gb ext4 partition on my scard. I'd format it and then change partitions if my sdcard wouldn't be filled with over 20GB of various files. Is it possible to change the size of the second partition to about 500 MB and turn it from ext4 to swap without formatting entire sdcard?

General :: Correct Format / Partition Layout For USB To Auto Mount?

Apr 25, 2014

I've got a 3TB external drive drive hooked up to my Ouya running CM11 (Android 4.4)

I run Nzbget and Transmission in optware, and use CM primarily as a vehicle for XBMC so I need the space.

I had it in 2 ext4 partitions which needed a init script to mount under the stock OS.

I was hopping to get it working in a less hacky manner under CM.

I tried with the two parts, and no go so i redid it with one big partition with root as the UID and sdcard_rw as the GID.

Still no dice. I can access it in File Manager with elevated permissions, but no go in XBMC or other apps.

Also tried one big exFAT partioning with no luck.

I plugged in an 8g ntfs drive I had and it automounted it no problem.

What is the right way to configure the drive? We're a Linux household so sticking with ext2/3/4 would be ideal. NTFS I would like to avoid.

Android :: Accuracy Of Location.getAccuracy() GSM And GPS - Exact Meaning?

Jun 16, 2010

As said in the Android Reference, the method getAccuracy() of android.location: "Returns the accuracy of the fix in meters. If hasAccuracy() is false, 0.0 is returned." But what does that mean exactly? The diameter or the radius? The Circular Error Probable (CEP), the 95-percentile or something else? I hope they are of the same type in GPS and GSM positioning. Does somebody know where these information are given into the system? As far as i know, are the GSM coordinates returned by a hidden Google API over a Web Service. So no chance to see an exact calculation. But where is the Accuracy of GPS calculated. I thought the GPS receiver only returns a dimensionless DOP value. And with Android 1.5 its not posible to read the NMEA sentences directly.

I tried via ADB and booted into recovery and selected the option to partition manually but still nothing. I reformatted the card with FAT32. Nothing.

General :: Create New Partition On SD Card

Nov 6, 2012

I am having some issues with my Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab SCH-i800. So the first issue is i tried to install a stock ROM to fix a corrupted cache partition. Now it tries to boot US Cellular. As of this moment the error i get when i put the device in recovery mode goes as follows:

E:failed to mount /cache (No such file or directory)
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
# MANUAL MODE #
E:failed to mount /cache (No such file or directory)
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/recovery_kernel_log
[code]....

I am wondering if i can just create a new partition on a new SD card? i bought this device on ebay a couple weeks ago and i don't want to continue attempting sketchy leads for fear of hard bricking it. I am very good with performing commands via command prompt if that is necessary, also i have access to an Ubuntu 12.4 computer if that would make things easier? Also as far as i know this is equipped with android Froyo and the issue developed after the previous user attempted to update.

General :: Swap File - Partition

Dec 31, 2013

I just took over a second hand chinese android phone which appears to have swap enabled already.

The following is on the phone with SD card installed or removed completely

Terminal Emulator - Free - swap 196604 53036 143568
Diskinfo reports it as zram0 [swap]

The value of swap changes continually, so swap is active.

There is no swapper or any other swap app installed. How do I go about finding out how the phone is configured and if necessary undoing what was done and reconfiguring if necessary ?

General :: GT-N7000 - Formatted EFS Partition?

May 13, 2014

I own a Galaxy Note (GT-N7000). Suddenly the IMEI went null/null and baseband unknown. Tried many things to recover from this but nothing seemed to work. I left the phone with the latest stock rom (Jellybean 4.1.2)

I then installed EFS Professional (rooting the phone first and installing BusyBox) and could connect to the phone with EFS Pro. I tried doing baseband and IEMI repair, and though the log showed it had successfully restores from .bak files in /efs partition, IMEI and baseband were still null.

So then I totally screwed it, hitting the "format EFS partition" by mistake (it was 3am by then) and didn't make a backup first. The phone wouldn't boot, so I flashed the latest stock rom again and now it continually loops when showing the Samsung logo when I turn it on. I can turn it on in download mode and recovery mode. When on recovery mode, it says /efs partition not found so I guess that makes sense.

The question here would be: is there any way I can fix it without sending it to service? Some options that sound possible:

- Flash the phone with some other custom ROM that would repartition the whole phone, thus creating an /efs partition again

- Use some nice software to recover the /efs partition

I'm sure that if a service can fix it, there should be a way I could do it as well.

I know my IMEI number (it's in the sticker on the back of the phone) so there should be a way to restore it into de efs partition, right?

General :: How To Remove CWM From System Partition

Aug 5, 2012

If my understanding is correct, tools such as CWM Installer and RecoverX are made so that users with locked bootloaders will have the privilege of using ClockWorkMod recovery. I myself used these tools. However, now that I have unlocked my bootloader, I want to remove the CWM they installed onto my system partition. I want to know where I can find it and how I can delete it? The reason why I want to get rid of such is because the kernel I'm using now already has CWM and I see no point in keeping a separate one stored on my system partition.

General :: Is It Possible To Make Bootable SD Card Partition

Mar 3, 2012

I plan on buying a new 32gb sdcard for my Xperia ray. What i plan to do is letting the phone use most of the space on the sd card but creating a second partition for a different purpose.

The purpose is to use that partition just like a normal windows(ntfs or fat) usb disk and eventually making it bootable for PC's. I carry my usb stick with me that i made bootable via easyboot and installed the tools i need which i wanna get rid of if my phone has the same capabilities.

Questions are
-Will a pc recognize that partition as a bootable device and eventually boot?
-If yes, will i need to set anything on my android such as usb debugging etc. after connecting?
-will that partition be independent from the android partition? (i guess this is a low possibility since the partition is on the sdcard and that is mounted to the android os, but may be android calls the partition sdcard thus not hugging the second partition)
