I'm planning to change my sdcard (bigger size), I'm assuming that I could just mount my old ext3 partition and copy the content ?
why not use a disk dump img? which is OK and no need to fix anything.
1.just restore it into the sdcard's first/second partition.
2. use a cwm zip file to change the phone to use the new osh partition.
3 reboot, done! enjoy.
when i used Atrix4G, i did it this way. i think it's a little bit easier.
And with Atrix2 i'm looking for chroot method, but i'm a little confused about the shutdown script(i don't know where to setup scripts which runs when the phone is turning off. this script is needed, cos i have to kill all chrooted system's apps, filesystem should be unmounted correctly with no program running on it) .
any solution for this? thks.
This right here tells me that the mount scripts are not correct:
So do the following:
Download this: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/45576654/mountosh
Download this: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/45576654/mountosh1
Now run the following again between Code: and End code, from the command line. Go to the directory you downloaded the files above to.
adb push mountosh.tar /data/local
adb push mountosh1.tar /data/local
tar -xvf mountosh.tar
tar -xvf mountosh1.tar
cp ./mountosh /system/bin/mountosh.orig
cp ./mountosh1 /system/bin/mountosh
chmod 755 /system/bin/mountosh.orig
chmod 755 /system/bin/mountosh
That should fix the issue you had with the previous hack that got in the way of this one..... That old hack you did was for the OG atrix and it just was not compatible, with this phone, so that is why I started from the hacks that sogarth did and expanded on it, and what mbm did with the files that Motorola left out, and I took all of that and made it work on our phone, with out having to create the ubuntu.disk file, since sogarth's webtop2sd does not work on our phone yet, so I sort of use that hack, but scripted instead of an android app...
Tried reinstalling from a stock system. All I did was do the instructions 100% step-by-step, including making the sdcard partitions in gparted. I was able to get into the terminal and do an apt-get update, but right away I got the "no space left" error. Checked busybox df -h and /dev/webtop is again mounted to /osh with 1.3GB space, while my ext3 partition is 6GB. Put the new mountosh scripts in again from the post I quoted, and again I'm stuck on the boot logo... my question isn't how to get past the stuck boot logo, it's how in the hell do I get /osh mounted to my sdcard?!?!? I literally followed your entire guide from start to finish, on a completely fresh stock system, and the sdcard still isn't mounted at all. Please, help...
EDIT: Interesting... if I open the script manually and run the lines myself, the ext3 sdcard partition actually successfully gets mounted to /osh, and a "busybux df -h" shows it as having 6GB. But, upon reboot, the phone gets stuck at the bootlogo again... so, it must be something in the way of the mountosh scripts being copied manually? But I fail to see the difference between manually copying it and letting the script copying it, and it reboots fine with the script.
