Using the same SD card partition for eMMC and SD booting
I can't post on the development forum, but this was asked there. Basically for those running Froyo or HC off SD who want the stock (or rooted) eMMC system to recognize the same SD partition.
It was suggested
that one should edit the vold.fstab file, however, this file doesn't exist in the stock (or my rooted) BN filesystem. However, vold.conf does exist in /system/etc
I just edited my vold.conf so that it reads as below (bold is added line):
## vold configuration file for zoom2
# modified for encore
## This is the direct uevent device path to the SD slot on the device
## Currently points to internal eMMC, assumes eMMC is formatted as FAT32
I can now use the same SD card partition when booting from the SDcard or internal eMMC.
Disclaimer: If you copy this and it bricks your Nook. Don't blame it on me. I didn't make you do it.
Remove the .txt extension, make sure your SD card is out and boot off internal system, make /system writable, backup the original vold.conf either by adb pull or as below, then push the new vold.conf file.
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
mv vold.conf vold.conf.bak
adb push vold.conf /system/etc
Shut down nook and reboot off internal eMMC, replace SD card, and voila, the same SD working partition.
