stuck after a2sd

Hi,

I'm a proud holder of lg gt540, updated to the official 2.1.

After about half a year since the update I've managed to try installation of app2sd

I read a few guides and tutorials..

I downloaded a zip which on the site they said was once updated after a bug was found..

In gparted I made a fat32 ext2 and swap partitions

copied the trhee directories from the zip

I downloaded gscript lite and runned the a2sd.sh with it..

then restarted..

when I tried check.sh, it said it's installed but I could not move the app in the app manager to sd.

So i read some more..

and here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803689

I've read

"11.in existing scripts in Application GScript, choose a distinguished name a2sd_data and wait until the script execute and complete. (if finished script back to the List2 view more)"

So I tried to run a2sd_data.sh

And I should have not been doing that.

Messageboxes with "do you want to end this app" started to pop out on me..

i left it that way.. after a while it restarted itself.. and again.. than it logged in, showed locked screen.. I can get to the "Lg home screen" but many apps are gone

so is the Market, so I can't redownload gscript and try other scripts..

The phone keeps lagging and once in a while a popup with "system android stopped to work do you want to end it?" etc. appears.

I tried a Hard reset, pressed vol-dn + power + search (I think, or is this a em-download mode?)

The hard reset popup showed, I clicked ok, It restarted.. but it came right into the same lagging state after it..

Now, I tried to look for a solution, BUT I have to know that I won't mess it up more than it is.

So should I try:

From here

http://android.modaco.com/content/lg-gt540...s-1-click-root/

download the bat file

and if there is a menu-option to remove a2sd, should I click it, and hope?

There is a directory "data" on the ext2 partition when I viewed it.. there were data-property or what and ohter directories in it.

I think that these ARE important. so I should not reformate the sd card.

Also I can go to the emergency-download mode, should I try insert new firmware? I've never done that, is there somewhere a good tutorial?

Someone on our czech android-forum said that he runned into the same problem, and he get out by KDZ-updater. I've never used it, is that possible? What should I do with it, and is there a tutorial?

and at last..

on all the tutorials there were mentioning the script names : app2sd.sh, although I'd got a2sd.sh in my app2sd.zip, I thought it's not a big deal.

I would really appriciate any kind of help here, or on [email protected]

I do not wanna have a brick, cos I'm not currently building any kind of structure.

Have a nice day!

So I've searched once again, and I think that I know where the mistake has happened.

http://android.modaco.com/content/lg-gt540...ug-is-repaired/

this is maybe my problem..

so since my mob won't regain consciousness..

Should I try to reflash ?

this is the script a2sd_data.sh which I probably shouldn't have run

#!/system/bin/sh


echo "APPS2SD by 4pda.ru";

echo "http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=187486";


mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

cat /sdcard/app2sd/busybox > /system/bin/busybox && chmod 700 /system/bin/busybox;

if busybox [ $? = "0" ];

  then

	  if [ -d /system/sdcard ];

	   then

			  echo "sdcard OK continue ...";

	   else

			   echo "sdcard created!";

			   mkdir /system/sdcard;

	  fi;

	  mount -t ext2 /dev/block//vold/179:2 /system/sdcard

	  if [ -d /system/sdcard ];

	   then

		echo "sdcard cleaning!";

		rm -r /system/sdcard/*;

	   else

		echo "no data of sdcard. continue ...";

	  fi ;  

	  echo "ext2 partition mounted, you can expect: copied application ... ";

	  mv /system/bin/vold /system/bin/vold2;

	  cat /sdcard/app2sd_data/vold > /system/bin/vold && chmod 777 /system/bin/vold;

	  cat /sdcard/app2sd_data/vold_data.sh > /system/etc/vold.sh && chmod 777 /system/etc/vold.sh;

	  sync;	

	  busybox cp -p -d -r /data /system/sdcard;

	  sync;

	  echo "done, reboot phone";

  else

	echo "can not mount the partition ext2, returning to its original state";

	rm -r /system/sdcard;

	rm /system/bin/busybox;

fi

That's one nasty looking script... I'd avoid using any method that calls that script personally, it's too "loose".

Given that your phone is already in the "dead" state, I'd just do a re-flash and try and find a more stable script to use in place of this one. (there are a few)

Furthermore, I must advise that before you go playing too much with these changes that you look into installing ClockworkMod Recovery... at least with that you'll be able to make a backup of your working phone setup before trying any tweaks in the future (so on the sad occurrence that something like this happens again, it's a pieca' cake to revert back to a working set.) -- Which you should probably do now... while the phone's out for the count anyways.

When you have flashed your ROM again, root your phone and install "Link2SD" from the market. This will give you "Froyo Style" App2sd, you can select apps to move to SD instead of moving them all. Make sure you DO NOT move Widgets and Launcher apps, they will cause the phone to crash.

I used ext2 partition and it works now ..

I don't think that I'll be messing up with the firmware for now, and so I won't install the clockwork orange :D..

I'll just wait till the camera and fm-radio works on cyanogen :D

Thank you for your answers :o
