change the cwm recovery fstab to recognise a new layout

create a new cwm recovery with new layout

flash it

create roms with new layout

flash them

stock mount points

# mount point	fstype		device			[device2]   fstype2
/recovery	emmc		/dev/block/mmcblk0p17
/boot		emmc		/dev/block/mmcblk0p9
/cache		ext4		/dev/block/mmcblk0p16  
/data		ext4		/dev/block/mmcblk0p21
/emmc		vfat		/dev/block/mmcblk0p20
/sdcard		vfat		/dev/block/mmcblk1 /dev/block/mmcblk1p1
/system		ext4		/dev/block/mmcblk0p14

new mount points
# mount point	fstype		device			[device2]   fstype2
/recovery	emmc		/dev/block/mmcblk0p17
/boot		emmc		/dev/block/mmcblk0p9
/cache		ext4		/dev/block/mmcblk0p16  
/data		ext4		/dev/block/mmcblk0p20
/emmc		vfat		/dev/block/mmcblk0p21
/sdcard		vfat		/dev/block/mmcblk1 /dev/block/mmcblk1p1
/system		ext4		/dev/block/mmcblk0p14

only one change made, but would change data partition from 150mb to 1024mb.

I could do that but every cwm I've built you have tested for me never looked right.

you will need to repo sync cyanogenmod to build a new cwm, otherwise I can see problems

this is for the partition structure created to use with link2sd (ie fat, ext, fat32)
REMOVE ALL SCRIPTS U ARE USING TO MOUNT EXT PARTITION AND MAKE A TITANIUM BACKUP OF ALL APPS
extract init.rc of boot.img and edit it.
do the following
1. search 'on fs'
on fs
comment out 'mount yaffs2 mtd@userdata /data nosuid nodev' with #
like this
# mount mtd partitions
# Mount /system rw first to give the filesystem a chance to save a checkpoint
mount yaffs2 mtd@system /system
#mount yaffs2 mtd@system /system ro remount
#mount yaffs2 mtd@userdata /data nosuid nodev
mount yaffs2 mtd@persist /persist nosuid nodev
mount yaffs2 mtd@cache /cache nosuid nodev
mount yaffs2 mtd@persist /persist nosuid nodev


now on 'on emmc-fs'
replace

wait /dev/block/mmcblk0p21
exec /system/bin/demigod_make_ext4fs -l 160M /dev/block/mmcblk0p21 /data
exec /system/bin/e2fsck -y /dev/block/mmcblk0p21
mount ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p21 /data nosuid nodev noatime barrier=1 data=ordered noauto_da_alloc errors=continue
with

wait /dev/block/mmcblk1p2
wait /dev/block/mmcblk1p2
wait /dev/block/mmcblk1p2
exec /system/bin/demigod_make_ext4fs -e /dev/block/mmcblk1p2 /data
exec /system/bin/e2fsck -y /dev/block/mmcblk1p2
mount ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk1p2 /data nosuid nodev noatime barrier=1 data=ordered noauto_da_alloc errors=continue

save it

pack the boot.img and flash it using cwm
if u have any cwm flashable package with u then extract 'META-INF>com>google>android>updater-script' and edit it with notepad++
delete everithing it it and paste this


run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
package_extract_file("boot.img", "/tmp/boot.img");
assert(run_program("/system/bin/dd", "if=/tmp/boot.img", "of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p9")=="0");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/system");


save it and drag and drop it to it's location, i.e. 'META-INF>com>google>android> here'

now drag and drop boot.img in the zip (no folder, the zip itself)
make a nandroid backup and flash this.

now, advance restore ONLY data using cwm recovery and reboot

if you want to mount external sd as internal sd do this in int.rc (this may have bugs)
search this
#exec /system/bin/resize2fs /dev/block/mmcblk0p20
now remove all # from

# [START] LGE_USE_INTERNAL_FAT
#wait /dev/block/mmcblk0p20
#exec /system/bin/resize2fs /dev/block/mmcblk0p20
#exec /system/bin/e2fsck -y /dev/block/mmcblk0p20
#mount vfat /dev/block/mmcblk0p20 /mnt/sdcard
# [END] LGE_USE_INTERNAL_FAT

to make it like to like like this



# [START] LGE_USE_INTERNAL_FAT
wait /dev/block/mmcblk1p3
exec /system/bin/resize2fs /dev/block/mmcblk1p3
exec /system/bin/e2fsck -y /dev/block/mmcblk1p3
mount vfat /dev/block/mmcblk1p3 /mnt/sdcard
# [END] LGE_USE_INTERNAL_FAT


add this above "mount vfat /dev/block/mmcblk1p3 /mnt/sdcard" if not mounting
unmount /dev/block/mmcblk0p20

save, pack, flash, enjoy.
and no need to do anything with the recovery. your backup of data will be huge now. ;)

thanks for the info, will try to implement it too,especially with encryption ) By the way, anybody needs a flashable zip enabling ICS native encryption for us? I made a post in a big topic and can advance it with flash.

hm, maybe someone, but I'm not interested in the encryption

make this sense? I mean, kernel 3.0 will came soon, and with that 4.1-4.2 will arrived
and encryption is a main feature of jellybean...

it woud be nice if you dev the ICS native encryption, but I don't want you to do something for nothing ;P

Native ICS encryption works, and it fails only because CWM format full data partition not leaving the footer of 16KB, and due to one commented string in init.rc :) The chargerfix also uncomments it and a zip will contain a chargerfix bootimg and data repartition command I posted before.

Do you ever know if Jelly Bean supports encrypting SD cards along with conventional data encryption?
