What has to be changed in boot.img? Only this here in init.rc or is it more?


# mount mtd partitions

	# Mount /system rw first to give the filesystem a chance to save a checkpoint

	mount yaffs2 [email protected] /system

	mount yaffs2 [email protected] /system ro remount

	mount yaffs2 [email protected] /data nosuid nodev

	mount yaffs2 [email protected] /cache nosuid nodev

logcat and adb shell both don't work.

error: device not found

The device isn't even listed with lsusb.

So your problem must be with the way you are spliting and putting back together boot.img. What tool are you using?

I use Link2SD on my NAND ROM so i made 4th partition on my SD (1FAT32-2EXT3-1EXT2 all Primary) and im getting bootloop...is not clear to me the 2nd EXT3 partition in guide is for Link2SD or is needed for SD ROM? is possible to use dualboot and Link2SD on ROMs or not?

Make sure your link2sd partition is using the right side of the memory dictionaries. If that makes sense, so when you see the list of partitions it is at the bottom.

Link2sd is not supported in this guide yet since the link2sd script also needs to be modified to work. I'm working on adding support.

Don't copy anything anywhere. Just follow the guide.

Don't wipe data or factory reset.It erases the partition.If you want to install rom to NAND then wipe data and cache partition through mounts and storage menu in recovery.

The 2 partions are for sd rom /system and /data.

And the scripts are necessary to switch the rom
