ok guys.. need MASSIVE help!!

Mobile was working fine with Gingerbread.. and technolover latest kerner..

Tired to instal this 'ad2sdx'.. mobile won't boot and is stuck at the boot image (the one before the boot animation)

trying to go into recovery by Power + Volume Down + Camera results in a non stop vibration with a meassage: "Sdimage download procedure... Failed!"

Really no clue what went bad or how to fix this...
Any ideas??

* Update 1.2

  • added e2fsck, check for ext-partition integrity (fix backup issues hopefully)
  • log added, script doesn't take any effect if no ext-partition is found
* Update 1.2a

  • fixed log, it could probably get too big.

Thanks TechnoLover for this script. Links2sd is fine and all but I love my apps and this wasn't enough help with storage. Using the script I have no problems. I am using 160mb of internal memory and 600mb in the ext-sd.

This script is a life saver. I have no problems now installing what I want.

Thank you :)

I am going to have a play with the script and see if it works having it pre-loaded into a ROM. If it does work (and ok by you) I will build the next rom with this built in.
It should just be a matter of downgrading the BusyBox and loading the script into the ROM I have now. But its never normally that easy so I will need to test that to see if it works :)
But as you have added e2fsck and a log to check for a ext partition I can't see why this wouldn't work pre-loaded into a ROM now.

EDIT#

No luck making a ROM with this working in it :(

I can never get it to mount the ext-sd. The log keeps saying there is no ext partition. Its one of them scripts where you need to boot into the phone once then apply the script. Them types of scripts or anything that needs you to boot the system once never work pre-built into a ROM.

Anyway the script "does" work great on a fresh install of the PerformanceRom once you have booted it at least once.

Tried on t&l metal: technolover's kernel + this script = the best solution for our liquid metal.

I changed the script so it uses 128kb instead of 256kb. I was having problems where it was filling the internal memory. When the internal memory gets filled the phone starts crashing. I have changed it so anything over 128kb goes onto the SD and this has freed up some space and hasn't effect the speed of the phone.

So if anyone is having problems, setting it to 128kb doesn't slow the phone down.

This does work also with the Performance Rom, but you need to downgrade Busybox to 1.19 and install TechnoLover's Kernel Edition 1.3a



Instructions

  • First I would get a high end Samsung Class 10 SD. You can find 16GB ones pretty cheaply online now.
  • Flash the Performance Rom
  • Then install TechnoLover's Kernel Edition 1.3a (Once AD2SDX is setup you can flash 1.4a back).
  • Boot into the rom and setup time and your Wifi
  • Next download , extract it and put it onto your SD card.
  • Open the file browser on the phone and find Busybox Installer.apk and install it.
  • Run the Busybox Installer and install Busybox version 1.19 (very important), do not install 1.19.4, anything higher then 1.19 does not work.
  • Now get GParted Live CD so you can format and partition your SD card. (lots of guides online on how to use it)
  • Setup a second partition at the end of your SD of 2GB as ext4
  • Now reboot into recovery
  • Wipe the data partition (mounts and storage > format /data) then flash AD2SDX
  • Now reboot the phone and make sure the USB is not contacted.
  • It does take about a minute to get past the kernel screen on the first boot. It's slow because its coping files to the sd-ext.
  • Thats it, it should now be working. On the second boot it loads a lot faster as it doesn't need to copy files across.


This is what you want to make your SD Card look like:

Once it is all setup run links2sd but click "Cancel" when it asks you to setup mounting scripts, and use it to remove links2sd. you will get an error saying its busy, thats fine. It has removed it you just need to reboot for it to take effect.


Works perfectly.

As for the SD-Card i have an 8GB Class 10 from Transcend. It sucks ass when it comes to random 4K writes (CrystalDiskMark benched something like 0.001 MB/s) but it works fine for me.

Try volume_up+power+focus

note 'focus' means half press of the camera button, not all the way down. It's a tricky combo, keep trying ;)

Where are the logs saved? :)

I've installed this on my HTC Desire running a BCM (CM9) rom. And so far it has been working great, but it does tage ages to get past the initial boot screen (the one before the rom boot screen)

Yes, I know that issue. It's really annoying but the script checks every boot if there are files above 256kb.

I created a new version, which checks only after five reboots, so you shouldn't have a too long boot anymore ;)

logs are at /sdcard/ad2sdx.log


* Update 1.3
  • due too the long boot time, I decided to check for bigger files just after 5 new boots.

Sweet ;) Now we only need the ability to add rules that make third party keyboards, widgets and other "important" stuff stay on nand :)

I think we could possibly create an app that moves the applications we like to the /system/app folder. however, when we update it'll save the newer apk in /data/app like normal. It'll probably end up being a bit like Link2SD where it moves the app back to /system/app after updating.

That would work. However, the app has to check if there is enough space on the system partition. So this would basically useless on roms that the system/app is full

ah yes, though i would have expected people only to move the apps that need to be ran on the nand because they need faster load ups. so these would be like Homescreen Launcher and sms (if you've changed it) and keyboard(again if you've changed).

This could be expanded to remove duplicate apps that do the same thing that are on the nand as well. So say if you have 2 launchers on the nand, it will ask you to pick one to stay on the nand and the other can either be removed or stay on the sdcard. That will keep accidentally taking up a lot of room low, but yeah these are all small additional features that are not part of the critical path for this to work. I can't promise anything as i've never done Android development before, but after my exams are over i'll take a look into it and see if i can make any progress.

Ciao Fabio

I tried to install the AD2SDX after a fresh install with T&L and Kernel 1.3a (also tried the 1.5).
Before flashing the script i formatted my sd 16gb sandisk class 4 with an ext partition (1GB) in recovery mode.
But when I boot the phone it stays in the technolover screen

Don't know if it's for the sd that is too slow or because there's something wrong in my procedure.
