Hi Andi,

I have installed the new Addon too. And it looks very good. I have no problems in the moment.

I have installed the stock one.

Thank you for the positive response. Glad everything seems to work fine.
As I had to build everythring completely from scratch, there is always a certain risks to introduce some bugs.

Cool!

New Rollback zip
Good evening all,

please note, ZaneZam found an issue in the rollback zip which caused problems when restoring back to stock after toggles have been installed.

@ZaneZam. Thanks for instant reporting.

The issue is now fixed and the rollback zip can be loaded from the original post. I would encourage all to reload the zip to be prepared in case they want to roll back.

Thanks and good night
Andi

ext4 remount script released as an add-on
Hi,

on popular demand (I got many PMs on that topic after it has been brought up in the thread) I finally decided to release my ext4 remount script I am using for many months now together with Semaphore Kernel versions and file system converted to ext4.

It does nothing else than putting a small script into the init.d folder which gets executed everytime the phone starts and then remounts all 4 partitions with a commit time of 15 seconds. It does NOT remove journaling, change the writeback strategy from orderd to writeback or any other stuff, so it can be treated as fairly safe.

What should it improve? There is no confirmed status as such, but from my personal experience I feel the phone a bit more smooth and performant (as it does not do writes to the file system instantly when not required) and maybe it safes a bit battery. But only my personal opinion. You can give it a try yourself and decice.

Thanks
Andi

I feel that a commit period of up to 60 seconds is safe. ThunderBolt! have been using 60 seconds commit with no barriers for quite a while now without any problems.

Hi,

thanks for your answer, very good to get your opinion on that.

I decided to go for very safe settings for now, which I used for months without issues. I remember I had some issues with barriers set to 0 in the past.
But I might provide a second version of the add-on with more aggressive settings as well for users that are willing to take some risk

Just be careful with consecutive freezes/random reboots. Those can corrupt even the most hardened remounts.

Correct. Thats why I always advice to use the extended power menu or the 13 toggles mod to reboot the phone (normal, recovery, download) instead of 3rd party apps - as the latter ones usually do not shut down the system properly.
