HTC Desire :: Do I Need To Go Into Partitions Menu For Wipe Anything?

Aug 12, 2010

Trying to install a new ROM, it recommends a full wipe. I ran the 'wipe data/factory reset', 'wipe cache partition', and 'wipe dalvik cache'. Do I need to go into partitions menu and wipe anything else?

General :: TWRP On SGS2 T989 - Backups / Rotation Data Under Wipe Menu?

Jul 9, 2012

I have a few questions about TWRP. I have been using it for a while now on my SGS2 t989 hercules variant and I like it alot but there are some things I am not sure about.

First when I make backups is it okay to only backup the System,Data,boot for regular backups? Or Should I just check everything system,data,boot,recovery,cache,.android_secure,sd-ext? Also if I make a data backup is that okay to restore after flashing a new rom instead of using titanium? I would think not but I want to know for sure.

Next thing is under the wipe menu, what is rotation data? I have never heard of it before. So should I wipe it once in awhile when I wipe the cache and dalvik?

I think that's the only negative thing that's happened since updating to 2.2, the Vodafone access point (APN) has been wiped and for some reason has defaulted to an ASDA one!

HTC EVO 4G :: Removing The Partitions

Nov 18, 2010

I partitioned my SD for app2sd and now that im having some problems (may or may not be related to the app2sd) i want to remove it. I booted in to recovery and did partition. set the ext and swap to 0 and the remaining for fat and it chewed for a min and then smiled and carried on. yet it was still there. i went in to ADB shell and ran parted /dev/block/mmcblk0 and printed a list (saw all 3) and did rm 1 rm 2 rm 3, printed again, all still there. i found the log that the recovery wipe made and it did the same thing i did and it showed an error saying it cant create overlapping partitions (because they were never deleted)

so, from recovery i mounted the SD to windows, went in to diskpart and removed them there, which seemed to work, but again, its still the same... disk manager as well.. no luck is there some sort of lock im missing? why on earth cant i delete and recreate my partitions? these are the steps i took to get the app2sd working

General :: I9100 Partitions - How To Merge In ADB

Jan 24, 2014

I had an encrypted I9100 on Cyanogenmod 9. After a factory reset I installed Cyanogemod 10.1. Everything runs smoothly, but about 12gb of my internal sd space was misplaced during the installation and is now missing. Only 2 gb is currently available. /sdcard cannot be mounted, something about /sdcard/android_secure

I ran some commands in adb, and the space is still there, but it needs to be replaced / repartitioned somehow.

df -h
Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
tmpfs 395.6M 48.0K 395.6M 0% /dev
/dev/block/mmcblk0p7 98.4M 87.0M 11.4M 88% /cache
~ # mount /data

General :: No NAND Partitions On A13 Allwinner

Jul 9, 2013

I recently acquired an A13 tablet and wanting to install CM10 on it I first installed CWM 6.0.2.8 according to the famous manual (if it's relevant I'll post the exact url). Anyway, it got stuck on CWM (doesn't boot normally). Now I figured it can't install since using 'adb shell' and looking at /proc/partitions -- nothing is there!
"""
cat /proc/partitions
major minor #blocks name

179 0 15558144 mmcblk0
179 1 15554048 mmcblk0p1
"""

So I have no internal memory to use -- no internal memory to install to, right?

"""
ls /dev/block
loop0 loop2 loop4 loop6 mmcblk0 nandf ram0
loop1 loop3 loop5 loop7 mmcblk0p1 platform ram1
"""

Seems that only nandf exists, which means I can't cat into nandg and sync and install new img. Right? Or am I missing something? How do I fix this?

General :: Use Unmounted Partitions In INTERNAL Storage?

Feb 8, 2014

My phone has 4gig of internal storage, but the system seems to be using only 3 500mb partitions... /system, /cache, and /data... and a couple of other small partitions.

At the end of mmcblk0 is p6 that is about 2GIG and NOT MOUNTED! Is that space needed for something, or can I add it to /data (p5)? or create a mount point for it? and if so, HOW?

HTC Eris :: Unable To See Other Partitions After Using Root Explorer Application

Jul 31, 2010

I have been reading about the sdcard partitioning on the forum here and I thought I might ask a question that I couldn't find along my travels whilst reading. I have a 16GB SDcard class 6 and here is my question. I have a HTC Desire with setROM 4.5, before I installed this ROM I partitioned my sdcard with a 512MB ext partition using ROM Manager (paid version), now everything seemed to work just fine with the flash etc, but when I go into the SD card + phone storage I see this: When I use Root Explorer application, I cant see the other partition (512MB one) I made? Can anyone advise if this is normal? I can move my apps to sd though through the manage applications section. I should add, I have no idea why I even created this external partition, do i even need it?

Motorola Droid :: Ext2 / 3 And Linux Swap Partitions

Sep 11, 2010

I've been looking for information about using ext and linux swap partitions today and thought I would ask here from more experienced users. If I understand things right most ppl use the ext partition for apps2sd but with froyo this is build in. So is there any further benefit to creating an ext2/3 partition? I've also read a few items on the linux swap partitions and its usefulness on older phones like the g1 but with the droid is this even needed? Arguments can be made for and against the linux swap but im looking for opinions or experience using it with the droid.

I know some roms make use of these from time to time but is there any benefit to using either type of partition on a rooted droid running the stock os. I try roms from time to time but stock seems to suit me better since I can run the wifi teather and overclock my droid up to 1.2Ghz and then remove the stock apps I don't want.

General :: Android Is Half Bricked - Partitions Seems Broken?

Feb 2, 2012

I've got a Motorola Flipout, just yesterday night I was copying and moving files to /system/bin (having root).

Lik this:

Code:
cp /sdcard/binaries/iptables-save /system/bin

But then I have did something wrong, typed something like this instead.

Code:
cp /sdcard/binaries/rfkill/system/bin

That throws me an error (normal) but then everything was screewed up.

The files and folders have been dissapeared to `ls` command.

`ls /` shows / doesn't exist.

`ls` shows nothing.

when i enter to accounts it reboots, doesn't detect sdcard partition...I do a rollback with a partial backup from 30 days ago, and still appear nothing.

It's like the partition system have been screewed up.This can solved reflashin again with sbf_flash ?

General :: Flash Image Recovery Gives Error Scanning Partitions

Nov 1, 2011

Current issue is that I my phone will boot just fine into regular startup however it will no longer boot into recovery mode.

I have tried the below methods but the main problem that I run into is that when I issue flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img(I have tried multiple img files such as the clockworkmod and SPRecovery) however none of them have worked they are receive the below message.

# flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
error scanning partitions

What I need at this point is either a way to get some form of recovery loaded either the out of the box version or clockworkmod version working so I can flash my phone and get gingerbread loaded. Or I need to break the OS to the point where the phone will not load past the boot loader.

Phone information:
Droid 2 Global
System Version 2.4.330.A956.Verizon.en.US
Android Version 2.2
Kernel Version 2.6.32.9-g9e2c63d

What I have looked at so far: [URL] .....

General :: Sony Xperia Tipo - Merge Device Partitions

Aug 15, 2013

I have SONY XPERIA tipo with 803MB Internal Sotrage and 2.20 GB.

I have rooted the phone, and set external 32GB card as the default SD card (i.e. phone thinks its internal memory is 32GB) via changes in /etc/vold.fstab file.

The result is that phone regards the 2.20GB space as external memory.

I can move many applications to 32GB card, however some applications e.g. BusyBox, GCC Toolchain, and Chrome are not movable to Internal storage (32GB) or external storage (2.20GB).

Since the 2.20GB space is of no use for me, and it is mounted under the same device where "phone memory" 803 MB is mounted i.e. :

/dev/block/mmcblk0 = 3909 MB
/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 = 524 MB
/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 = 167 MB
/dev/block/mmcblk0p15 = 803 MB
/dev/block/mmcblk0p16 = 2311 MB

Surely, the last partition "/dev/block/mmcblk0p16 = 2311 MB" is the free storage not being used, and "/dev/block/mmcblk0p15 = 803 MB" is the phone memory, which I want to extend/increase.

My question is: Is it possible to merge the alst 2 partitions (e.g. by formatting 2.2GB space and then merging it with the 803MB space. This way my phone will have its system memory pretty large, and I will be able to install more applets through BusyBox as well as Chrome etc.

General :: Allwinner A13 Tablet With Split Internal Memory / How To Merge Partitions

Feb 6, 2013

I have a generic Allwinner A13 7" tablet essentially identical to this one. The internal memory is set so that part of it is seen as internal, and part as a fake SD card mounted on /mnt/sdcard. Actual SD cards get mounted to /mnt/extsd.

I find this very annoying for a number of reasons, and would like all the internal memory to be seen as internal with no fake SD cards, and SD cards to be mounted to /mnt/sdcard. If this were one of those tablets capable of running Linux I'd run gparted and do the job from there, but it isn't.

Is there any way to merge the two internal memory partitions into just one?

I'm aware I can edit vold.fstab and invert the two mount points, and I'll keep it as a fallback solution, but I hate the idea of wasting a gig of useful internal space like that.

I am on twrp recovery version 2.1.3 and to upgrade to 2.5.0.0 I used the Google .im app but even after the message showing that recovery was flashed successfully, when I reboot into recovery I still see the 2.1.3 twrp only..So I tried flashing it with terminal emulator but it didn't work.This error shows up every time failed scanning partitions failed with error : - 1

I tried putting the .img file in the root folder as well but it didn't work..I tried naming the root of sd card as storage/emulated/legacy, storage/ emulated / 0, /sdcard, etc but it keeps on giving this error every single time!

HTC Desire :: Flashing ROMs / New Recovery Menu

Sep 22, 2010

I'm currently running Froyo after running the RUU: RUU_Bravo_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.09.405.8_Radio_32.43.00.
32U_5.09.00.20_release_140022_signed.exe
as per teppic74's thread over here: Froyo RUU update available

My desire has HBOOT 083 - which I know can be problematic when flashing. My question is:
Is the unrEVOked v3.21 method of getting the new recovery menu the best/easiest/most reliable way to enable me to flash new roms on my phone? Are there any caveats? Anything I should be aware of beforehand? According to teppic74's thread, this version of Froyo cannot be rooted at the moment, which I'm not bothered about anyway. But, it would be nice to try some of those lovely new roms.

HTC Desire :: Way Of Showing Battery Percentage In Menu Bar

I know there are multiple widgets for showing battery percentage, but is there a way of showing it in the menu bar. Just like as an overlay of the battery icon? I don't see the need for a widget AND a menu item, plus it would be helpful to see it as a percentage at all times, without the need to exit to the homescreen during calls or using apps.
