I am trying SALT on my LG G6 H870 and have some positive starts but also some questions
I tried to use FWUL (persistent) - the 8GB version - on an SDCARD in my USB SDCARD reader formatting it with ETCHER but when I booted the PC from the SDCARD (as USB) I got an error saying
Failed to load ldlinux.c32
I the tried booting as UEFI and it got a bit further but still no joy
I then burnt the forgetful ISO to a 4.7GB DVD and this booted OK. I had a problem with it saying error /dev/disk/by-label/FWUL but this seemed to disappear when I booted from DVD and I had removed my SDCARD.
Anyway I booted off the DVD and put my phone into DOWNLOAD mode. SALT recognised the phone as an H870 and I could get a partition list once I had gone into a terminal and entered your UFS text
git checkout ufs-test
In the main window I could "REBOOT your device" and the phone rebooted.
Once I went back into download mode and restarted SALT I tried to do the backup partitions and this is where I got stuck. Everytime I tried to backup a partition I got the error message
Calculated target size is too small (0)!
Upload and share the debug log
I assume this is because I am running the forgetful DVD and there is no writeable disk space on the DVD. I have 3 hard disks on the PC, one of which had 65GB free and I managed to mount it after having to enter the password "linux" when I double clicked the disc in the File Manager app.
I am not sure how to tell SALT that I want my data backed up to a folder on that drive.
I guess on the persistent USB version the USB is writeable to store the partition backups.
I have linked my SALT debug log here https://bpaste.net/show/14dd48bf33f5
What is my next move?
