If you don't know what does that mean don't do it you'll screw your phone.

The thread is also for 32 GB. And I came in here after I tried to understand that guide. Well I think I have to figure out a way to get the hang of this thing. Thank you btw. Have a good day.

Hi all, I am trying to do this mod and I am half way through it with a problem

I am stuck on the new file system, I cannot use mke2fs or tune2fs, i get

Code:
mke2fs: not found
like it doesn't even exist, but it does I can see it. I get the same error for tune2fs. but parted and gdisk work fine.

Yes I did push them and chmod 755 them.. and I have tried running it from the /sbin directory.

Help!

Hi i don't really remember but I think that I also got these errors, however it still did it's job. Might not be the case for you in which case you can do the restoration.

Hello!

I'm getting the same error over and over again creating /dev/block/mmcblk0p21 to /dev/block/mmcblk0p22:

tune2fs -c 0 -i -1 -C -1 /dev/block/mmcblk0p21

"Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/block/mmcblk0p21"
"Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock"

So i can't create a file system on the created partitions. I have been looking everywhere for an answer. Somebody have an idea?

U should just wait. Andrew dodd found a way to make find7a have unified partition and he claims he can make it work on find5 as well. Let's give him a bit to figure it out tho.

Gdisk not working... :(
Ok guys sort of a noob here... Firstly, totally appreciate what you guys are doing here... I wants it bad, thass why i'm here.

So far... I have i have done...

"adb reboot recovery"

"adb push gdisk /sbin"

I figured that's how you are supposed to install it ... hope i'm not wrong, but i guess it pushed through fine

But after rebooting to system in TWRP , i opened terminal emulator and when i use the command

"gdisk -b /sdcard/gpt.bin /dev/block/mmcblk0"

I get ...

"/system/bin/sh: gdisk: not found"

now i'm too scared to proceed without backing up the partition tables... so please help...

edit - FYI , i'm running the last build of Asylum Carbon... should i just go back to latest oopo stable stock rom and then root my device again and then try all this again... would that help... ???

Directly from Andrew Dodds g+ " IT HAS BEGUN.

The first phase of Find 7a/7s LVM testing is here.* See linked post for details.* (Sorry to disappoint, but the first phase is "make sure we don't break existing configurations")

Once this phase is complete, the remaining list is:
Fix up the remaining TWRP issues (make RECOVERY_SDCARD_ON_DATA runtime instead of compile-time)
Make user-friendly conversion processes

Once things are solid on Find 7, I'll work on Find 5 and N1."

Stay thirsty my friends. Good things ahead
