Hi Amphoras,

I am gonna use your App shortly to update to Gen2... could you just clear up a couple of issues for me please.

1) By upgrading to Gen2 with this app, if I then use it to downgrade to Gen1 at a later date, there is no issue with IMEI number (like the Windows app??)

2) I've installed this App, if I run straight from my phone and do the Gen1-Gen2, and then load a ROM, does it touch/wipe any data off the SD card during conversion...??

Cheers, many thanks...

If you upgrade by TPT, you can downgrade by TPT, which should not touch your IMEI.

It shouldn't wipe any of your sdcard data, but it will wipe your internal data. Obviously there is still a small chance something may go horribly wrong, but it shouldn't wipe the sdcard.

1. No (There is no issue going gen2->gen1 and vice versa with the windows application given whilst the process is going on you still have a stock recovery).
2. No. (SDcard is not touched by any upgrade process at all.)

Hi Amphoras, unrandomsam & De@n,

Wow, thanks for the super fast response, and putting my mind at rest...... I noticed someone has finally updated the Universal Converter to make it work for Gen1, but alas it didnt work for me, and got caught up in a loop.... :(

So now, I think I am just gonna bite the bullet, and after you guys re-assured me, going fully Gen2 now.... :) thanks...

Whats the best method/layout to have...?? so many choices, does it make a big difference? Whats the Cache area all about, as I have seen some with 2Mb and others with 37Mb, is it better to have a larger swap area or dont it matter...?

What other differences will I see going Gen2? Battery last longer on Android 2.3.7 ? Will the extra radio frequency be any use to me (T-Mobile UK) ?

Many thanks, Lister

If you're planning to use CM7, then I'd go for the v9-custom layout, the one with 160mb system, 2mb cache and 294mb data. Most of the newer roms don't need a large cache partition, so 2mb is fine. There isn't much difference going to Gen 2, the main difference is newer roms properly supported rather than having to use things like the converter.

Trying to restore a Clockwork backup is likely to cause problems if it even works. It would be better to use something like Titanium Backup and only restore user apps.


Amphoras,

I had time last week to run this TPT and added a 2.3 rom. The difference is amazing, I'm really glad I did this. Thanks for your help.

But I have another issue: I have a feeling my SD card is flaky. It dismounts when under load, (i.e. big downloads: like Ivona's voice app, and Co-Pilot satnav)

Worse it dismounts and crashes the phone when using the satnav. Not too good, when in your in London and don't know your way, as happened this weekend.

This began happening long before the TPT and when I was on FLB froyo. I always thought it was due to heat, as I would have the car charger in at the same time as using the satnav, to keep the battery up. But, it crashed this weekend without the charger plugged in.

I know there has been many discussions regarding SD cards elsewhere in the forum, but the issues mentioned usually are if a card works or not. Mine works (in normal use) and has done for about a year, but it just seems to lose its head under a heavy load.

Its a My Memory 16GB class 6 I think. Don't know if you can add any wisdom to my problem, or not? Just thought I'd try.

Failing that, I'm thinking of changing to a Sandisk card (seems to be a good choice) but am I correct in thinking that this TPT has re-partitioned my current card? And, if so what are the steps that I need to take to make sure any new card I fit, would work with the TPT to Gen2 and the 2.3 rom?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

All the best,
Bill

I don't know what could be causing the sdcard to unmount, maybe you could check the connection and see if its in properly? Otherwise I have no idea, sorry.

The TPT doesn't do anything to your sdcard. It repartitions the internal memory on your phone to make better use of the space, so you can use a new card without having to worry about that as it doesn't make any difference.

ahh, a light bulb just went on :-) I always thought the re-partitioning business revolved around the SD card. Sorry about that, and thanks for your quick reply.

PS: I have checked the connection and cleaned the contacts, but no joy

Thanks again

gen 3 please


Working on adding ones for Gen 3 as well as ones for stock Gen 2 and for the ZTE Skate. Will also let you choose Gen 1 to Gen 2 TPT partition sizes from 2-37MB for cache, 90-210MB for system and the rest for data, in 1MB increments. If anyone wants those to go lower/higher let me know.

And if "yes" than what do you need from me to add to TPT Helper?
I can attach image.bin or just partition_zte.mbn and appsboot.

That would be great if you could upload the image.bin.
