[Q] Unknown misc partition fs_type "ext4"
I have been working on this for quite some time. My HTC Evo View rebooted a few months back on its own and is now in a recovery boot loop. I do have root but have no idea what to do to solve my problem. I decided to try coming to a more generic forum and see if maybe there is something I else I can try that is more android generic instead of view specific.
I can only get to recovery, I cannot get to hboot. I beleive I am SOFF but it has been a long time since I mucked about with the flash. I have tried various options for getting to hboot including the adb commands (adb reboot bootloader) from recovery, it always ends up back in recovery.
The only error I get that I am hoping will lead me somewhere useful is 'E:unknown misc partition fs_type "ext4"'.
I have tried various things as I get more desperate like dd'ing 0's to the misc partition, formatting it ext4/ext3 etc. I always end up with the same error. I am not sure if I make changes to misc if it will stick without some kind of sync command though (tried sync) because it seems like no matter what I do when i reboot the misc partition is back to its grumpy self.
Willing to try just about anything, at this point I am kinda considering it a lost cause (been out of commission for several months) but it seems like a good opportunity to experiment in dangerous ways with the small hope it might come back to life.
Help me XDA dot comobie you're my only hope.
