General :: HTC Desire Z - Can't Access System Partition And Formatting Not Possible

Apr 3, 2014

HTC Desire Z (Vision). I S-OFFed how it's described on CM wiki. Latest radio. About month ago I installed CM 10.1 AlterNdromadus. It worked until yesterday, when it unfortunately installed some system update.

After that phone didn't booted anymore. In recovery it says, that it can't access system partition and formatting is not possible.

I tried connect the phone via fastboot in bootloader, but it also doesn't work. Under windows I have it as unknown device and when I tried manually install drivers from google, it says that they are not compatible with the HW (under ROM it worked before).

I tried also install stock RUU rom (extracted the zip and deleted H-BOOT, radio and recovery) from SD-card (PC10IMG.zip). But it also got frozen on system update.

Here you can see error from 4EXT recovery and CRC images from bootloader.

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 :: HTC Explorer - How To Resize System Partition

Mar 12, 2014

I am using HTC explorer and a few other android devices. The main problem I face while flashing new roms is the lack of space in System partition! Is there any way to decrease the space of /data and add it to /system? Then I can use int2ext or m2sd script to move /data to /sdext!

General :: How To Resize System Partition Of JB 4.2.2 On Cubieboard

Oct 17, 2013

resize the system partition of an Android JB 4.2.2 on cubieboard?

Image: sun7i_android_sugar-cubieboard2-8192cu.img

I need more room (it's only 512MB) to install apps.

Well, the APP disk space (nand partition) is very small and the internal "sdcard" too big.

When I install a few applications the space runs out and the system becomes unstable.

I need to increase the nand and decrease internal sdcard to gain more room to my apps...

Well, I started the process by using the tools:

1) To unpack/repack: imgRePacker_204
2) The image ROM: sun7i_android_sugar-cubieboard2-8192cu.img (Android 4.2.2)
3) To burn to flash: PhoenixSuit1.0.6
unpacking the ROM creates a folder named sun7i_android_sugar-cubieboard2-8192cu.img.dump

So, somewhere in internet I see to change the sys_partition.fex file, and search the system nand partition:

Code:
;------------------------------>mmcblk0p8/nande
[partition]
name = data
size = 1048576
user_type = 0x2
so, I change 1048576 to 2097152 (2097152 * 1024 = 2GB)

but :

1) In installed android, the system has only 512MB and not 1GB as show.
2) By increasing this value, nothing happens when I repack back to IMG and flash to the nand.

(all unpak, change, pack, flash process is fine ! )

Here is my devices list and size:

Code:
NAME SIZE MOUNTPOINT LABEL
nand 3.8G
|-nand1 16M Volume
[Code] ......

General :: How To Expand System Partition Size

Jan 27, 2014

I was trying to expand my system partition size.

I flashed a zip via CWM on my phone, and must have made a mistake.

After i flash, my partition table seems to be messed up.

My "boot" partition is fine. All other partition seems to be "invalid" now.

I am able to enter fastboot, and "fastboot boot recovery.img" to enter recovery

I am not able to boot, or enter recovery mode directly.

I tried to "erase" via fastboot, but the partition is invalid.
i tried to "flash" via fastboot, but the partition is invalid.

Is there any way to "fix" my partitions?

I have downloaded a CM11.zip for my phone.
I have downloaded a stock rom for my phone.

I have access to these files, which are supposed to be system partition tables. found here:
github mirom/android_bootable_recovery/tree/cm-10.1/res/partition

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).

Samsung Galaxy S : Recovery Boot Error - Can Not Access To /system/csc/VOD/system

Sep 4, 2010

Phone: UK Galaxy S Issue: Recovery boot error message in red writing

Multicsc : can not access to / system/csc/VOD/system/

Background: I have been trying to root my phone from information found in a youtube video. All went well and the little ninja bloke with the sniper rifle was in the app list. Tried installing busybox and was told that the phone was not rooted´┐Ż..

I think I ran the root application again and at some point I started getting this error message when in recovery. I have since run the one click root method to unroot the phone and the little nija dude is no longer there. Since I rooted the phone it will no longer connect to my wireless network, it finds the network and attempts to obtain an ip address. After a few min it times out and tries again. When I load the phone recovery the error message is still present.

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 :: How To Access Android File System

Sep 25, 2013

My objective is to create a text file in an android file system.

Using java language, I am creating an app. It has a screen with a table of 3columns. Each time a user enters the table row and click on Submit button, the row entry should be created as a separate comma-separated file on an android device. So each time when the table gets updated with new entry and clicks a submit button, a new file is getting created on the device file system. So I am looking for the file connectivity to the internal device memory where I could open the files and access it.

I have done the same in Nokia mobiles using J2ME. But for Android, I am not able to find the device file path.

General :: Why Can't Alter SU Binary To Have System Access Only Instead Of Root

Apr 30, 2014

Imagine a scenario where you have just system access on android , and you want to continually have it, so you use the su binary, with the correct permission and the setuid flag on, and the owner being system, you do:

Code:
chown 1000:1000 su2
chown 06755 su2

you have the ability to change the owner to system as you do when rooting, and you also set the appropriate permission as you do when rooting,

06775 being the permission code to all have execution permission, and the setuid flag on.

But when dealing with system permission that doesn't work. it only works with root.

General :: How To Gain Root Access If Busybox And System App Is Already Installed

Oct 11, 2013

I have a Rockchip RK3188 Tablet with Android 4.2.2, which I need to root ON DEVICE. Actually, the device was already rooted (using a Laptop via the adb bridge), so I already have busybox installed and I have one of my own apps in /system/app. However I managed to delete the su program (yeah great!) and therefore don't have root access any more. I know I can easily root the device again if I connect it to my laptop again, but that is not possible, because the device is at my parent's place and I can't go over there any time soon.

Therefore I want to root the device just with an app. Actually I would only need to copy su to /system/xbin. These are the things I already tried (without success):Framaroot (doesn't work, because framaroot does not support Rockchip tablets)

Writing my own app, which contains su in the assets and using this su for temporary root

Using adb (on the device) for a local connection (adb connect localhost), because if I connect from my PC I automatically have root (doesn't work because Android 4.2.2 has increased security on adb)

Start telnetd via busybox and then execute my commands via nc (doesn't work, because I can't start telnetd in a way that it ends up with a root shell)

My last idea is, that I could maybe gain temporary root access with the app I already have in /system/app. Basically this would be similar to the Master Key Exploit, except that I do not have to fiddle around with the apk and instead install it normally. However I don't know how to continue from that point. I know, I have special permissions if I have an app in /system/app, but which permissions are that? And how can I use those permissions to make /system writeable (and copy my su file there)?

Android :: Android Emulator Copy Files In System Partition

Feb 10, 2010

I need to copy files to the system partition of the emulator. As it is read only by default, I use the command "adb remount" to have write permissions and I can then copy the files.

My problem is that when I close the emulator and that I restart it, the copied files were missing. It's very annoying because I must write file permissions that are read at startup of the emulator (platform.xml file in /system/etc/permissions)
