it might be able to be done but the only way I can test it is scripts so I don't have access to the full code yet. But if it bricks my TP, I don't know it a webdoctor would fix it or if I had to go through the delete every partition and rebuild them.Thanks Gradular. Any thoughts on ways to do this? I wonder if the /boot partition size is something that can be modified by iMarck90 for one of the AcmeInstallers or if that size is set by WebOS Dr during WebOS install?
That could be done pretty easily.Wonder if that portion of the updater-scripts from Evervolv can be incorporated into the CM updater-scripts? Leave it to Flintman to be thinking on his toes. At least he covered the main ones. And ClassicNerd as far as I know is just about a non-player.
I would think so to, but that would require CM acknowledging other Roms and might be frowned upon.That could be done pretty easily.
And as usual in typical Milaq fashion, not a clue as to what this new recovery does. :lame:
Final Thoughts:Mpgrimm2 said:Now I can't get any other zip file or recovery to flash? Weird!
Started from: Milaq's CM10.2 data/media build (support for /data/media/0/ and /sdcard/ as "external_sd" ) and his CWM v184.108.40.206.
- managed to get back to my PC, redownload some of Gradular's data_plus zips (20gb) and The_Apes from the OP as well as Milaq's CM10.2 and CM11 data media roms and gApps (just in case). Booted back to CM10.2 and transferred the "good' files over.
- booted back to Flintman's TWRP. Still couldn't flash any recovery file or data_plus zips
- Was able to format /system and perform a "Factory Data/Reset"
- Could not reflash CM10.2 rom. Failed in similar fashion.
- Was able to reflash Milaq's CM11 Data media rom and Gapps 4.4kk.
Starting to think these data_zips will only work on JC's CWM v220.127.116.11 20121215 for the original partition layout (edify support? ). Trying not to resort to Taylor.
PS: I would love for those who have had success with these zips to document at what point they used them during the data media switch and with what recovery exactly.
FACT! - Gradular's and The_Ape's repartitioning zips will "Currently" NOT, I REPEAT, NOT WORK with ANY OF THE DATA MEDIA RECOVERIES !
The zips will work with JcSullins' CWM v18.104.22.168 20121215 for the original partition layout (and likely iMarck90's v22.214.171.124 by extension).
Here's how I got back around to where I needed to be from Flintman's TWRP v126.96.36.199 SeLinux Alpha build (flashing zips files from /data/media/0/ ) :
1 ) Flashed Philz CWM v188.8.131.52 SeLinux Data Media Recovery, and rebooted back to recovery = Finally! a different Recovery!
(would not flash any of the data_plus zips, but did flash Jc's CWM v184.108.40.206 )
2 ) Flashed Jc's CWM v220.127.116.11 20121215 original version, rebooted back to recovery. (now flashing zips from /sdcard/ )
- because CM11 won't mount or see the /sdcard/ ("external_sd" in CM10.2 data/media build ) I couldn't get the files transferred over to original "sdcard" seen by this version of CWM.
3 ) Plugged USB cord b/w PC and TP, within Recovery, selected "mounts and Storage" -> "mount USB storage".
- CWM 18.104.22.168 allowed the PC to see the "legacy" sdcard, and let me transfer files to external_sd card for install. = GOOD!
4 ) Successfully flashed Gradular's 20gb data_plus (only) zip, leaving me about 6gb for original /sdcard/ (external_sd in CM10.2 ) if I go back to a non-data/media build.
- I am certain that The_Ape's zips would work also with CWM v22.214.171.124. Call it a hunch.
5 ) Rebooted back to Milaq's CM11 data media build, verified /data partition change with "FreeSpace" app = GOOD!
6 ) Rebooted back to JC's CWM v126.96.36.199
7 ) Reflashed Philz CWM v188.8.131.52 SeLinux Data Media Recovery.
- Rebooted back to new Recovery to verify change (flashing zips files from /data/media/0/ ).
8 ) Done !
Some serious testing going on here. Don't know if you caught what I posted before, but what you said about using ACME5 to flash just moboot and 6019 recovery is what I suggested. After using recovery to flash either Grad' or Ape's zips to increase /data, and copy the CM11 Rom and gapps over, then flash Flintman's TWRP, would be interesting to see how Flintman's modified TWRP works on all the Android 4.4/ CM11 and Evervolv Roms. I also seem to remember that Flint's TWRP can see the old SD card. BTW, did you have the recoveries that you were trying to flash with the data/media recoveries on the data/media SD card or on the old SD card?RolandDeschain79,
Have another look at posts 61 - 63 in the_ape's thread. Basically,
- AcmeUninstaller2 (removed android)
- Wiped Sdcard within WebOS
- AcmeInstaller5M w/CM10.2 Data media pack with Cwm 184.108.40.206 DM.
- Rebooted to CM10.2 (basic setup only, no apps)
- Attempted to flash data_plus zips from CWM 220.127.116.11 data Media version. (failed)
- Flashed Flintman's TWRP 18.104.22.168 SeLinux Alpha
(and attempted data_plus zips which failed)
- Formatted and installed CM11 data media
(still could not flash data_plus zips)
- Only recovery that would flash from TWRP was Philz Cwm 22.214.171.124 SeLinux DataMedia version.
(still could not flash data_plus zips)
- Flashed JC's CWM v126.96.36.199 for original partition setup
- Succesfully flashed data_plus zips
- Reflashed Philz CWM v 188.8.131.52 SeLinux Data media
So the big question is, what recovery did you successfully flash the data_plus zips with and at exactly what point in the process?
Think about it, a zip to increase /data to anything close to that does not exist. So you are going to have to use Tailor. Look at Roland's video on how to use Tailor. Tailor should report what is left in /media to move. Just leave a gig or two for WebOS and move the rest to /data.Great reading. Any chance you know what the data would be for the 64GB TouchPad?
Yeah, I think i recall that. Just wanted to try out the cminstall pack and look for kinks in the process, plus I wasn't sure if I could mount the sdcard within Cwm 184.108.40.206 as a PC USB media device to move files over afterwards (still don't know).Don't know if you caught what I posted before, but what you said about using ACME5 to flash just moboot and 6019 recovery is what I suggested. After using recovery to flash either Grad' or Ape's zips to increase /data, and copy the CM11 Rom and gapps over, then flash Flintman's TWRP, would be interesting to see how Flintman's modified TWRP works on all the Android 4.4/ CM11 and Evervolv Roms. I also seem to remember that Flint's TWRP can see the old SD card. BTW, did you have the recoveries that you were trying to flash with the data/media recoveries on the data/media SD card or on the old SD card?
May be a few days till I run it again but I will let you know. I believe RolandDeschain79 verified that it does already.Also, can you validate that running ACMEUninstaller2 resets all the partitions back to like nothing was ever done?
I don't think this is possible. Certainly not from within Tailor per Gradular.Sure would be nice if some one could figure out how to add 5mb or so of memory to the /boot partition.
I think i have a screenshot in post 8 or 9 of the /boot. Not sure but when switching recoveries it seemed like there was very little room left when I was on Flintman's TWRP Alpha.One other question, I have older versions of both TWRP and CWM installed side by side. TWRP is 5.27mb and CWM is 3.89mb. I still have 1.09mb left in /boot. What is the size of the installed uImages of the data/media TWRP and CWM? There is a file that a lot of people still have in /boot, I believe the name is update/uimage or uimage/update. It is around 5mb in size and can be safely be either moved or deleted from /boot. I deleted it off my a couple of years ago and believe this is why I am able to have both recoveries installed at the same time.
I downloaded Milaq's, Phils CWM's and Flintman's TWRP and the uImage sizes are huge now compared to the older recoveries. So unless someone can figure out how to enlarge /boot, it's gonna have to be one at a time. Ah, we need a new app, "Recovery Switcher". :goodcry:I think i have a screenshot in post 8 or 9 of the /boot. Not sure but when switching recoveries it seemed like there was very little room left when I was on Flintman's TWRP Alpha. You can unzip/extract all the recovery uImages from their installers and get a file size without installing them. Sent from my "Up All Night Sleep All Day" Nexus 5!
