According to what I am reading, it will be impossible to switch between newer CM-11 and anything else because of this business of exchanging the /system and /data partitions. Rob 10 meg from one to give to the other? This is about as worthwhile as removing all the non-English fonts to get a few meg of system space. At least that did not take away from the already over-subscribed /data. One will usually still have to trim the ROMs and the link2sd problem will just be worse. Please, devs, revert, cancel this. And return us to a CWM and TWRP that will work with all the ROMs. Please.
Instead, we can use cache partition. It just goes waste. We can instead push all /system/apps to /cache/apps and bind them. This can be done with the fonts too. This will free up around 30mb of /system. Enough for gapps
Press the THANKS button if I helped

Or use HardLight method: http://forum.xda-developers.com/opti...s-one-t2828536

I did try it, and sure with Class 10 SDCard, can't feel the speed different between external and internal memory.

or ... get the dexopt-dataonly=0 working on the Omega/Omni. This will free a similar amount of space without tricks that often foul up Android.

I think once one is on an 0SD ROM, one must stay with that. This solution, of course, requires a larger sdcard to accomodata everything from nand. Still prefer work-arounds that are less ambitious. Android is still a bit of a mess compared to purer Linux distros.

You must have at least ca. 15 MB left in /system partition. Trim the rom first.

You can have a regular ROM installed in your internal partitions, and just restore internal or OS2SD boot.img in recovery to switch between the OS2SD and regular versions.

Using OS2SD doesn't break anything on regular internal ROM installs except you have to share sdcard partition 2 between /sd-ext and OS2SD /system. There should be room enough for both to coexist on a 4GB or larger card.

The mtd partition swap definitely breaks backwards compatibility.

I can modify my new twrp-multi that handles both internal and OS2SD roms to handle ROMs with swapped or unswapped internal partitions too, once I have my o1 in hand. HardLight told me the one I cobbled together for o1 isn't crashing yet, so it should be feasible to fix it up some more.

the new kernel is the only affected thing on the mtd swap. The partitions remain untouched, the kernel switches their names on boot.
Since the recovery has that kernel, it writes old roms to the wrong partitions for their kernel... thus the recovery issue.

I will eventually offer a fix for the swapped system/data between in-recovery switches for old/new mtd partition names, and a flashable kernel without the partition swap. not until I can test em though.

So this could actually be a multiboot system. Next step?

Main reason why it is not such a wonderful idea. Too little is gained by creating this mess.

So ... looking forward. I have never left CWM, but this might be the incentive.

needs kexec to really do that right. I detest reflashing partitions for 'multiboot', rewriting nand isn't really multibooting.
I haven't gotten kexec functional in my past experiments but will eventually play with it some more.

I haven't had any experience modding cwm and would have to pick apart philz to see how to do it. I started with a modified twrp and changing it to my specifications taught me much.

twrp certainly seems glitchier than cwm while running but has some versatility that makes me prefer it (file manager, terminal.)
