You used my mod right ?

Best way is either issue

df in a terminal console or install this app

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....cls.partition

It will display the actual filesystem size .disk info display the size of your ssd

Thank you very much for your mod.

I want to try it but I'm a little bit afraid. Do I lose any data? Will this affect the installation of other ROMs? I'm on stock now but I want to try some custom ROMs to decide. Do I have to use your mod every time I install a new ROM?

Thanks in advance!

You won't loose any data it will adjust the size of ext4 fs to the actual physical size of your partition.

Flashing a new lollipop ROM flashes a new system image which specifies the image size.

Our device system image size is defined here https://github.com/CyanogenMod/andro...dConfig.mk#L64

685768704 is 654 megabyte but your mmcblk0p8 partition mounted on /system is 800 mb.

Until this is fixed. Will open a ticket to increase this value but there are maybe few reason google chose 654.

And yes you must reflash it each to flash

If you replying to my question then I didn't do anything. I'm asking I should do it.

Is this only for CM based roms?

Thanks

I installed the app you said, but I didn't see any unclaimed space. Is your mod for stock ROM as well? I seem to have 644MB of space on the /system partition.

Well the maximum space you system partition can get is 800mb. The system of je partition number 8.

Thus you are looking space.

The resizes just fixes that

So mine shows 800 for system partition. Does this mean I don't have to do anything? Thanks

Yes, if your system partition is already 800MB in size then you're already using the whole block.
