General :: Can't Find Boot Partition-script

Apr 22, 2013

This is my first attempt towards creating a zip file to update the kernel using Clockworkmod Recovery (v6.0.1.0) on a Galaxy Nexus phone. My repeated attempts to flash the boot.img to the phone failed. I checked the logs to determine the cause of problem and I'm getting the "can't find boot partitionscript aborted" error that is causing the update to fail.

Error log:-

Opening update package...

Please wait, boot.img being flashed...
can't find boot partitionscript aborted: assert failed: write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img", "boot")
assert failed: write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img", "boot")

General :: Data Partition Cleared - SMS Recovery?

Apr 17, 2012

My rom bootlooped somehow, and I was forced to clear the data partition. Now I want to recover the messages and put them in the (clean) rom.

I extracted /data/data/com.android.providers.telephone/databases/mmssms.db from the nandroid backup before I cleared /data.

I tried copying these files into the rom but the messaging app doesn't show any difference. Is there a way to salvage the messages?

General :: How To Partition SD Card Without ClockworkMod Recovery

Apr 6, 2014

I have the OG Motorola Droid A855. I installed the 4.1 Jelly Bean mod onto it. I'd like to move my apps to the sd card - however, the "Move to SD Card" option on my phone is grey and unusable.

I'd like to do so with Clockworkmod recovery. However, I cannot do so because my Clockworkmod recovery does Not have the partition SD Card option (it is v2.5.0.1).

How am I supposed to partition my SD Card without this option within Clockworkmod? What is another way to do so?

General :: Root Partition Data Recovery?

Jul 17, 2013

Not so long ago I flashed a custom rooted ROM. After this I realized that I forgot to save some important app configs (im history, notes). As far as I know, Android uses ext4 filesystem on its root partition. Is there a way to perform undelete or any other method to try to recover deleted files? Searching the forums gives some results of repairing data on internal storage, but I guess the user data space is meant, not the root. My device is Huawei U8850 Vision, Android version 4.1.2.

General :: Android Boot Sequence And Backup / Access To Boot / Recovery Partitions?

Oct 4, 2012

I try to understand android boot sequence on my JB (under CM10). I found some docs and there should be specific partitions (boot, recovery, system, cache, data).

My understanding of the boot sequence is now:

A) normal boot:
1) Power ON ->
2) bootloader ->
3) boot-partition where i flashed the kernel aka boot.img ->
4a) system-partition with the OS (libs, UI, etc) where i unpacked over CWM my customROM.zip ->
4b) data-partition, where i unpacked google-apps.zip and installed all the apps ->
4c) cache-partition with user data

B) recovery boot (adb reboot recovery):
1) Power ON ->
2) bootloader ->
3) recovery-partition with CWM where i may unpack all the .zip stuff to proper partitions, or restore from sdcard, etc.

Is this correct? I wonder, because i didn't installed CWM into recovery-partition. It cames from install of CM10 (fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot boot.img), so it must be in boot-partition and not in recovery?

So, next confusion: i looked up to /proc/mtd and i don't see neither boot nor recovery partition here:

Quote:

# cat /proc/mtd
dev: size erasesize name
mtd0: 19000000 00040000 "system"
mtd1: 00600000 00040000 "appslog"
mtd2: 06580000 00040000 "cache"
mtd3: 1a400000 00040000 "userdata"

I did a backup with CWM and loocked the data. There aren't boot, and recovery backups:

Quote:

# ls -lha /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-10-04.18.49.55/
d---rwxr-x 2 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:56 .
d---rwxr-x 3 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:49 ..
----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 1.6K Oct 4 18:54 .android_secure.vfat.dup
----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 54.6M Oct 4 18:55 cache.yaffs2.img
----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 360.2M Oct 4 18:53 data.yaffs2.img
----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 212 Oct 4 18:56 nandroid.md5
----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 214.6M Oct 4 18:51 system.yaffs2.img
#

So, i think i didn't understand the boot sequence and partition schema corectly.

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 :: Cant Boot To Cwm Recovery?

Oct 17, 2013

So I just got my S4 rooted and everything seems correct. I then installed Rom Manager so I could start demoing some of the ROMs out there. Went through all the steps to flash Rom manager as the recovery but I cannot get my recovery to go to CWM, it just keeps going to the stock android recovery. I have googled the crap out of this and am coming up with nothing. in fact I have written several android apps but this just does not work.

My device is a Verizon Samsung S4 model SCH-I545 running android version 4.2.2 Kernal: 3.3.0-690088se.infra@S0210-13#1

HTC Eris :: Re-root For Recovery Partition

May 3, 2010

I am pretty sure I have root, as if I open emulator and SU It goes $ to #. I am running build "2.19.605.1 CL123435 test_keys" and everything seems stable. It's funny that I'm running 2.1 because I never flashed the ROM, I couldn't get past recovery partition set-up.

When I try to press power+up volume all I get is the yellow triangle exclamation point with the android cartoon. This is where I stopped on my first attempt. When I powered the phone back up, it's running 2.1.

Can I re-download the recovery partition .zips and re-flash the root ROM to start all over? I'm thinking my DL's of some of the recovery images may have been corrupted. I'm thinking since I have root, re-flashing the root ROM shouldn't hurt anything right?

Kinda green here, it took me a long time to realize why there a bunch of different files with the same name, but not the same contents (pmb). I'm assuming that's the only filename that the boot loader will recognize.

Samsung Fascinate :: Way To Keep Recovery Partition?

Oct 26, 2010

I don't like how Samsung gives us a nice 250gb drive but chunks it into two ~100mb partitions with a little left over for the hidden recovery one. I want to keep the recovery partition but have the remainder in one nice big drive. I tried out Easeus Partition Master but that doesn't seem to allow me to do what I want. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could do this?

General :: Can't Boot Into Recovery - Karbonn A6

Apr 10, 2014

I have a Karbonn A6 phone given to me by my friend because it was locked. It's asking for gmail user/pass but he doesn't have it. I tried to boot into recovery mode using Power+Volume Up button but all I get is a white triangle with an exclamation mark in it. I can't seem to go beyond that. USB debugging was perhaps not enabled unless it was enabled by default. There is no camera button, only power and Volume Up/Down. What do I do?

I just need to get this phone working somehow. Is there a way to use a computer and a USB cable to get it running?

General :: Can't Boot Into Clockworkmod Recovery?

Oct 11, 2011

I'm on a Galaxy S2 running Gingerbread 2.3.4, my baseband version is I9100XXKI1 and my kernel version is 2.6.35.7-I9100XWKH4-CL487028root@DELL136 #2

Using Odin3 v1.85 and S2 Root. (Superoneclick kept freezing on me)

My aim is to install Cyanogenmod 7.1.

So far I started off by trying to flash it with XWKDD Insecure, which I believe is wrong? However after rooting it, I installed ClockworkMod Recovery, downloaded the ROM and tried installing it - which is where the problem started - I kept getting the error in recovery mode 'Invalid whole-file signature'.

It just wouldn't boot in to ClockworkMod Recovery.

So after some digging around I managed to find a file to flash to my device for the CWM Recovery mode, tried it, and it worked. However, I still couldn't install Cyanogenmod from my SDcard.

I tried it a few times, wiped/formatted a few times and ended up getting my device stuck in a bootloop.

So, I've managed to get it out of the boot loop, and started fresh...

I flashed it with XWKH4 Insecure, unrooted, rerooted etc.
I've downloaded CWM again, downloaded the Cyanogenmod again, tried installing it, and once again it's gone back into Androids recovery and failed to install because of the 'whole-file signature' and failing to verify it.

I did post this in Q&A as well, however it doesn't seem to be as popular a forum as this one, I'm not really looking to wait for days for a response.

General :: Phone Won't Boot Not Even Into Recovery?

Mar 10, 2013

I just tried to install an custom rom at my Android, i unlocked it on HTCdev`s site, but i think i was a little fast with the DooMLoRD_v2_ROOT-zergRush-busybox-su.zip

I then bootet the phone into fastboot, and did the command fastboot flash boot boot.img, this worked very fine but now the phone wont boot.

I think maybe the phone is unlocked, but it is S-ON. I have tried diffrent recovery modes with the fastboot flash recovery recovery.img etc, but none of them are working.

Now im sitting with a phone that wont boot at all, what to do?

Is it possible to keep going on with the custom rom install, or can i resett the phone into the stock rom?

HTC Incredible :: Updating Radio - How To Boot Into Stock Recovery And Not Clockworks Recovery

Aug 11, 2010

ok, so I put the PB31IMG file on my sdcard, and the dinc_ota. I changed dinc_ota to update. (I did not name the file update.zip.zip) I powered down, I entered bootloader, and it loaded the PB31IMG and whatever. then I hit volume down and selected recovery. this brought me to clockwork recovery. I noticed the isntructions said to boot into STOCK recovery. well, I like a dummy ignored that and tried to apply the update.zip thru clockwork.

This is what I got:

CODE:.......................

So, is this because I tried doing it through clockwork recovery? is it because I didn't apply the first OTA update we got? what does that mean exactly anyways? is it saying I need to install the leaked froyo ROM, and then update the radio? How do I boot into stock recovery and not clockworks recovery? does this count as applying the update.zip once, meening if I do it again I'll brick my phone? should I sell this thing and get a samsung flip phone because I'm too stupid to own a Dinc?

General :: EVO 3D Won't Boot Into Recovery Mode Anymore

My EVO 3D (Sprint) is rooted and is on android version 2.3.4 and I believe it's not an android official release, this is how it was given to me. I'm trying to install CM10.1

I installed ClockworkMod 5.0.2.0 using ROM Manager and since then I haven't been able to boot into recovery mode. I can get into bootloader but not recovery. I've tried powering it on with the volume button down, using the recovery reboot option, and tried using "Reboot into Recovery" in ROM Manager, but I keep seeing the same thing. It boots with the HTC logo then goes black then at this point i believe I should be seeing recovery mode but instead I see the HTC logo again and then it just boots like normal. Is there something I did wrong and is there a way to get recovery to work again?

General :: Can't Boot Into Recovery - How To Access Phone

Oct 22, 2012

I've been trying to track down a solution to my problem, but every solution seems to contain a "Boot into recovery mode" line which I cannot do. I attempted to update a rom that I had installed, and now I am stuck at the google logo with the unlock icon. I cannot boot into recovery with the volume keys and power, and now I cannot figure out how to use adb to recover the phone, as it cannot recognize it.

Is there anyway I can access this phone while it is in this state from my computer and recover it somehow. I tried following leads that people have posted in other threads, but it seems like most suggestions involve "Use adb", yet every adb tutorial involves the phone being in recovery mode. I've tried to uninstall and reinstall drivers via Wug's Toolkit, but when I plug my phone in, I am not able to install the drivers properly. I try to run adb items through the console, yet it does not recognize my device.

Is there anyway to install the necessary software I need and recover my phone while I cannot get past the google logo screen?

I am using a verizon galaxy nexus
