Thanks for feedbacks from folks like you. I hope someone make a thread with active poll just like the old screen SH vs SO issue. But as I can tell ATM SEM04G user's are less likely to run in to the issue. This is why we can use all the meth's to root while M4G2DE user's seem to only be able to root with gfree as VISIONary+ does not stick for them. I hope someone take the time to make a comprehensive poll which will help people like me to narrow it down. I am ATM trying to get my hands on another MT4G maybe I can get both types and test it and see and post back the results.

Are you sure the partitions are SLC and not MLC? The emmc can be SLC but it can be partitioned as MLC for /data and SLC for others.

The emmc says ~2GiB when in fact we have 1GiB usable right? If so, its MLC.

When it was originally allocated it by the manufacture the chip was using SLC thus we have 2GB instead of 4GB. If we used MLC we would have total 4GB allocated but since we using EUDA it can NOT be reformatted fully unless you replace the whole motherboard. Even then you would need to declare the partition table using low level format which you don't have access to since its EUDA.

UPDATE:



Keep in mind when I said formatting the partition table I don't mean reformatting /data or /system. As those parameters are still predefined originally when it was allocated by the manufacture as they formatted it using SLC-EUDA. Sorry for the confusion if anyone didn't understand it.

I just checked my phone and my wifes phone and found that I have the bad chip on my red mytouch4g and my wife has the good chip on her white mytouch4g, although her phone seems to have tons of issues and mine does not ie: unresponsive from waking while plugged into wall charger requiring a battery pull to reboot. I wonder if the color is relevant in this issue in regards to how many of what model were sold before they switched from or to the supposedly problematic chip.

Do you have Android SDK installed on your Mac-OSX? If not go download the and install Android SDK. Then connect MT4G and try from terminal. The adb commands are same as in any other platform.

But the instructions show "c drive" which there isn't on a mac, is it?

Yeah, I have everything downloaded...but I'm so new to Mac, I don't know everything quite yet.
