5. Optimise storage


This may work to increase the amount of internal storage. The files seem different for the Vivacity and SF2, so only use this on the SF2.

I don't have either of these phones, so I can't test whether or not it works, it might brick your phone. If you want to try it, make sure you check the md5sums.

It will wipe your data, and remove your rom, so make a backup before using. It should boot into Sebs Clockwork recovery after it finishes. Afterwards you should have 160MB system, 15MB cache and 265MB data. I also changed the boot and recovery partition sizes from 4MB and 6MB to 5MB each. To return to the stock partition layout, go to the stock rom thread and use the SF2 image.bin from there.

To flash it, unzip it to the root of your sdcard, you should end up with a folder called image, with the image.bin file inside it. Check the md5sum of the image.bin file matches the one in the nandroid.md5 file. Then you can either flash it manually (probably hold vol+ and menu while powering on) or go into the settings menu to system updates and start it from there.

Again, this is untested. Use it at your own risk, it might brick your phone. Check the md5sums, if they don't match, don't flash it.

Great work Amphoras! Not tested yet as I am still waiting for both the OSF2 and TMV to arrive lol!

Any chance of doing TPTs with 160mb system, 300mb internal, no cache (2mb)? Pretty much like wbaw's TPTs?

Here's one for the Vivacity with the same sizes as above.

MD5sum: 757b3845f61ceb2ca25f08797c7721a9

And here's some with 160MB system, 2MB cache, 278MB data. If you use these ones then you won't be able to download anything from the market unless your rom redirects cache to somewhere else.

SF2: http://bit.ly/sFRQ55
MD5sum: 08219ff0cb2754faa921a65cc3b7b7b6

Vivacity: http://bit.ly/uTp8gK
MD5sum: 9f662cd54a8fcfafc7c1642227350a36

As before, they're untested so use at your own risk, and check the md5sums.

I can't help as mine don't arrive for another 7-10 days. It would be good to see if this does indeed work as the blade2 needs to be re-partitioned sooner or later.

would like to try this as I need more internal storage but its a big risk as we don't have roms that move the cache yet. Can you do one for TMV with a cache that works for markets please?

I did put a request up in this thread;

http://android.modac...ded-gb-rom-r2a/



Hopefully the scripts can be integrated soon so we can try these TPTs. These 2 points are crucial - repartitioning and redirection of cache/ as the extra storage completely transforms the phone if you ask me.

This one has 15MB cache which is what flibblesan recommended here:

160MB. System partition is 200MB so could be resized and the space given to data. Cache is 50MB so that could be reduced to 15MB.

If the TPT works but its not enough, its easy to make another one with a bit more space for cache.

Awesome news! Are you using the TMV or the OSF2?

Just need the cache/ redirect to RAM scripts to be part of the currently released ROMs now...

Thanks :). Is that enough space for cache in the end, or do you think it needs more?

TMV and cache/ redirect to RAM scripts would make this phone perfect

Thanks for your help. I used titanium as a work around so I think will wait for a ROM with cache/ redirect to RAM scripts before installing anything new.
