I just compiled a CM12 with your changes, booted it and so far it seemed to work. I'll do some more tests and also I try to create a version of TWRP using the same partition layout.

So, here is one test build
Warning, there may be errors in it. Especially in this dirty-patched TWRP version.

CM12.1 with classic sdcard mount: http://tobby.eu/downloads/cm.html?fi...CIAL-xt897.zip
MD5: http://tobby.eu/downloads/cm.html?fi...897.zip.md5sum
TWRP2.8.6.0 with classic sdcard mount: http://tobby.eu/downloads/cm.html?fi...-datamedia.img

If everything works as expected and if users are interested in it, I will create a thread for it and post updates.

Thank you very very much!

Can you explain to me what is "TWRP2.8.6.0 with classic sdcard mount" ?
Is a sort of modded TWRP recovery?

Thank you, too, for testing it. I am now testing it since Friday Looks like it is running without any problems.

Basically there are the same changes as in the CM-build. So it will not create a /data/media directory anymore and it will not mount this internal (emulated) mass storage. Instead it will set the external card as default (mounted on /sdcard instead of /external_sd like inside of this CM build).
A backup of /data will now include all directories and not exclude anything anymore. A wipe of /data will now not "rm -rf" all files on the filesystem but recreate (format) the filesystem in the same way it already does for all other wipes (/system, /cache, ...).

This makes it MUCH easier to backup and restore and especially to change between different filesystems (ext4 to f2fs or f2fs to ext4 p.e.), especially for those people who have problems with the filesystem-corruption in f2fs.

You will certainly lose it, any updates to the boot.img.

You will loose it. So you have to flash new "classic-sdcard-mount-builds". I sometimes compile new versions, because I am using this on my Photon Q as well. Take a look at this (crappy) page http://tobby.eu/downloads/cm.html New builds are available now (just uploaded them). But I didn't test the 21th and 22th builds - so make a backup before you flash them!
