And i didn't run into any issues that some people had reported aside from the reboot issue, so i figured i'll just chill on rom slot 1 until the rom i use was upgraded since it's my daily driver.
Well today i booted to the stock slot to prove a point to someone (long story, not really relevant to the issue). Once i was done proving my point i went to go switch back to Rom slot 1, but it's acting like there isn't one. It wants me to create one.
If i have to format and reinstall i'm going to lose a bunch of text history as well as some other stuff. I'm hoping there's a way to force this to romslot 1 or some trick i don't know about.
Just to recap when i select rom slot1 (which is where i've been running Alliance for weeks) it's asking me to set the partition size's and tap "create Rom Slot" like nothing ever existed there.
Sorry to bump my post but I've been poking around a bit on the file system and trying to find info on where rom partitions are stored. From what i saw on hash's main website partitions are created in /sdcard.
There is indeed a safestrap folder in there, but all i see currently is a file called "active_slot" and inside that file it says stock, which of course is whats currently selected. I was wondering if i edited the file and changed it to rom1 or romslot1 and reboot if it might pick up my rom. Problem is i don't know what commands hash uses to signify a romslot. Is it rom1, romslot1, slot1? I don't have my S4 any longer to look
I also found an "active_slot" file under /ss/safestrap/ same thing says "stock" inside it.
I'm a little concerned as i don't see a container file that might be my roms filesystem, but then safestrap doesn't work like a VM so i guess it wouldn't use container files. If i could even mount the filesystem somehow through adb i could dump it to my computer and just format and pull what i needed from the dump.
Does anyone know the terms used in "active_slot" to specify what slot is active? I'd like to try editing that file.
