Using this has changed a few things. The internal SD card is now labled 'U8800-MMC'? (had no label prior). Custom rom installation no longer works from B135 or B136. Perhaps there are still problems with this partition table? Either way, stock works for now at least :)


Noticed that too. The official_partition.zip should not label the internal SD, I think. Could make problems if you need to return the phone for service.

I altered the line
run_program("/tmp/busybox", "mkfs.vfat", "-v", "-n", "U8800-MMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p14");
in the file updater-script in official_partition.zip to
run_program("/tmp/busybox", "mkfs.vfat", "-v", "-n", "", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p14");
and that removed the label from the internal SD.

I have a U8800H.
My Phone Storage seems to also be 600MB but the Internal SD is reported as 5,75GB total.

Can I use this as is or will I need to modify for the larger card?

Hi,
If we do that should be able to restore previous image of the system or should be able to update our system to the future versions?
I read over internet forums that after this merge of space some people had problems.

How do I confirm that the partition was well done?

I only can see in settings - about phone, that I've 893MB internal memory available.

Before the internal memory was only 600MB available?

Thks

Hi, I'm new to this. Can someone help me with below.

1. Backup your Internal 2G Storage, doing this will erase the internal 2G data.
How do I back up my internal 2G storage?

2. Download the attached partition.zip to EXTERNAL SDcard
Do I need to unzip the partition.zip file? and where should I place the file?

Thanks :P

1. If you do not have anything installed on the internal storage, you do not need to save it. You can use a file explorer to check out the contents of the 2GB storage. It should be mounted at /HWUserData.

2. No, you do not need to unzip the file, just place it at the root of the external SD-card (the one you can replace).

Exactly the same way you originally partitioned your phone but use the stock partition file in the opening post :)

return-to-stock partition solution upgrade package:
http://www.mediafire...x72e6p4hvo3adhj

Custom Partition tool:
useage:
1. download this tool and unzip to any directory 2. run custpartition.bat, follow the prompts to enter the number 3. and custpartition.bat positions will generate the partition file 4. replace the same file in the package 5. flash the zip pack, OK!
http://www.mediafire...m1nqg1y4gp5szp5



But I can see 2 files to download.
The 1st one is the rar archive that contains the custpartition.bat and we should run it before flashing that second file. Is that it????

How do we run it?
