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 :: 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?

HTC Hero :: Possible Memory Leak - Creating Swap Partition

Dec 5, 2009

In Taskiller the amount of free memory is showing between 90-105mb. Is this normal? I have deleted text messages, cleared cache, deleting emails from inbox and trash etc. I going to get rid of a few apps too, but its a bummer if I cant have many apps due to it affecting memory!

Also I understand that if flash it with the Modaco custom ROM. I can create a swap partition, does this help a lot? Also would I lose quite a lot of the HTC Hero features such as Sense UI for example if I flash it with Modaco?

HTC Hero :: Any Benefit For Installing A Swap Partition On Sd Card?

Jul 16, 2010

When ever I partition the sdcard it gives the option of installing a swap partition. I know that my ubuntu installation on my laptop installs a swap partition when I installed the operating system. Would there be any benefit for installing a swap partition on the sd card?

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Micromax A87 Swap Is Always On

Nov 10, 2012

I rooted My My micromax A87 with XDA and I was Succeeded in It, and then I Partitioned my SD Card into three,(FAT-32 + EXT 3 + Linux Swap) with Parition Mini Tool.then I Installed Link2SD and Swapper 2 its all fine but microsd is too slow to Link and Swap because its (Class 4).but it run the temple run and some HD Games with Small Lag.

So I Experimented with other swap tools like "MemoryInfo & Swapfile Check and ROEHSOFT RAM-EXPANDER (SWAP)"and then Uninstalled these. but there is the problem starts. Now in my A87 it shows a swap cache always on. I opened adb shell and look for free.

I wonder that there is a swap file generated around 50 MB but I cant see it in my External SD or Internal Memory.So I Removed my SD Card and then check again, Still I see the same swap value 50 MB.

My Internal memory has no change in the value (available space not reduced) it looks like the same value before I Install the MemoryInfo & Swapfile Check + ROEHSOFT RAM-EXPANDER (SWAP).

General :: Swap Not Working LT15i 4.1.B.0.431

Nov 24, 2012

I have a problem with the swap partition on my device, Xperia arc. I flashed my device to "LT15i 4.1.B.0.431 Generic Global World" follow by this post. I found that lacking in memory so I tried to use swap partition and created 256 Linux swap partition on my SD card. But "free" commend still shows swap=0 However, I decided to use swapper 2. Still no effect and I couldn't get swap although swapper did its job without fail! After few days search I found that the kernel doesn't support the swap, So, I tried to use "Kernel.sin unpacked and added CWM options" form here. It also didn't work, neither "init.d zram scripts from wedgess" from the same page.

General :: How To Swap External SD To Internal On Kitkat

May 2, 2014

I'm searching for a solution to swap external sd to internal. I had to break the internal storage to make a I9003 working again.

Now, it boots the ROM from the external (but that's an other story).

Camera needs storage0 (internal storage) to work properly for DCIM. But I have only storage1 (inserted microsd). In 2.3.6 swap sd was possible by editing vold.fstab. In Kitkat the opportunity has been denied.

I search for a way to make storage1 to storage0 in CM11. Whether CyanogenMod is working on it?

I am trying to create an sd-ext partiton so I can move applications and backup to that partition on my 4GB external SD card.

I've got ROM Manager 4.8.0.8 but when I select Partiton SD card it reboots and tries to reformat but I don't see anything on the Card just a LOST.DIR folder. I can't read the system messages when in Recovery mode cos it all happens so fast.

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.
