[Q] Partitioning the internal memory
I'm trying to figure out the partitioning on my phone (Acer E2 V370).
With fdisk I have this layout
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/block/mmcblk0p1 65 64 2147483647+ 5 Extended
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary
/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 1665 2944 10240 83 Linux
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary
/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 2945 4224 10240 83 Linux
Partition 3 does not end on cylinder boundary
/dev/block/mmcblk0p4 5825 6592 6144 83 Linux
Partition 4 does not end on cylinder boundary
/dev/block/mmcblk0p5 8385 110784 819200 83 Linux
/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 257985 64 2145420287+ 83 Linux
This doesn't make a lot of sense. 2145420287 blocks means 1039.something Gigabytes ?
Using parted for my SDCard gives me neatly two partitions with their respective sizes and fstype,
but using it on my internal memory, gives me errors, stating that the partitions can't be outside the disk.
This necessarily doesn't mean anything's wrong though, the phone (used to) boot(s) just fine,
and I noticed other people getting the same error message because they gparted the internal memory by accident
What actually went wrong, is that I reformatted the internal sdcard with ext3 using gparted while my phone was connected by UMS.
Since then it won't mount in android or on my linux box.
The reason I wanted to do this, is to use that internal storage as the location for link2sd.
I accidently wiped pretty much everything on my SD-Card (32Gb)
and the backup from my previous ROM (4.2.2) doesn't restore properly,
so nothing more can go wrong.
I can always repush the images back onto the phone using fastboot, right ?
Can anyone help me out, maybe by posting the results of fdisk -l /dev/block/mmcblk0 ?
