This guide will help you merge userdata
partitions in to one Big
for 16gb Nooks is aprox. 13,29GB and for 8Gb is aprox 6.1GB
What are those?
is your /data partition and in that one you can currently install the apps/games until is full.
is your internal sdcard(emmc)
What we are going to do?
We will delete both userdata and media and make a bigger userdata and inside that we are going to mount the media partition so will become like this /data/media.
1.Working CyanoBoot aka 2ndary bootloader.
2.Fastboot drivers and adb shell drivers with both of them functional
3.A special recovery to perform the merge.
4. A little patience until is implemented into cm11 as a special recovery will be needed after this merge.
You cant use any existing recoveries after this is done.I or chrmhoffmann will post a special recovery after the changes are done on device tree.
A special thanks to meghd00t
for the sgdisk tool. A very valuable tool for this task.
So how this is done already!
1. Download the special recovery from here
2. Download the new cm11 recovery from here
Not available yet
3.Put both into your working fastboot folder.
4.Enter fastboot mode with holding N and select fastboot on Cyanoboot menu.
5. Copy&Paste the next lines
fastboot flash recovery sgdisk-recovery.img
6.Enter recovery with holding N and select Internal eMMC Recovery from Cyanoboot menu.
7. Copy&Paste the next lines
You get a # and you are now in adb shell interface and you are root so, lets delete both partitions with:
sgdisk /dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/mmcblk0 -d 11 -d 10
And merge into one
sgdisk /dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/mmcblk0 -n 0:0:0
Name the new partition into userdata
sgdisk /dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/mmcblk0 -c 10:userdata
Format our new partition into EXT4
make_ext4fs -L userdata /dev/block/mmcblk0p10
Check if all done ok
It should print in the end (for 16GB nooks)
10 1611MB 15.9GB 14315MB ext4 userdata
It should print in the end (for 8GB nooks)
10 1611MB 7734MB 61240MB ext4 userdata
is your new partition, 14315MB/61240MB
is the partition size ext4
is the filesystem and userdata
is the name of the partition
After that you can issue a
Enter fastboot again and flash the new recovery when is available
