    Post [ROM][10.0][REALME X2]CORVUS OS 8.x[OFFICIAL] [STABLE] [Q] [2020-08-10]

    As a user I think, this should work. Some gapps may be older afterwards (from the date the ROM was released), but they get updated again. For gapps data is usually not a big problem, if the data of a google app is damaged, you can usually clear it's data, log in again and wait for sync. That are...

    I couldn't restore a lot of my ~300 user apps, e.g. Zoom, Youtube, Advanced Root Checker, GMail. All these apps are restoring for ever (hanging while restoring).

    unfortunately no... a patched PIT is only useful if you can flash it via Odin. if you have access via adb or recovery, you might repartition by command line tools (see forest et. al.) However, the failure flashing the PIT might point to a more severely damaged partition table. You would need...

    the first I do with a phone is installing a custom recovery, so I never see a stock recovery.

    so, if the first pit is identical to the one flashed last, the problem probably isn't a damaged/misconfigured pit. I would assume - either the emmc brick (if you really have one) extended to some crucial area (like where the pit is stored or something) - or you have an unrelated prob with...

    you should probably try a custom recovery first, to be able to scan to determine the brick area efs is only affected if you move starting at a partition below or equal to efs. Luckily efs is one of the first small partitions. So most bricks are somewhere after efs. you need an efs backup and...

    first: from your description, when writing something to your phone's flash memory the phone doesn't lock up or become very slow. So I think this isn't an emmc erase brick. Instead: It's just a theory looking at your description of the problem. I think your flash memory is now permanently...

    (note I usually don't read the thread any more, because I have a note3 now) 41 MB means starting the gap at the KERNEL partition beginning at 37MB.

    if you don't know this yourself, you are probably not familiar enough with the method -> read much more. It should be clear from the thread starter. The whole thing is not about flashing a pit and being happy afterwards. Instead the real work begins after the pit.

    if you cannot scan, your only chance is to use trial and error method. If the recovery cannot be flashed via odin, the brick is also in this partition (kernel/recovery). So choose a pit which skips this. If you are unlucky, you have damaged even lower partitions, then it gets very dirty...

    being a cyanogenmod fan I cannot say anything about this rom. But usually custom roms don't change partitions, otherwise they would explicitly tell you, because it's critical for your data. So don't worry (but make backups anyway when trying new roms etc.).

    in short: no unless you flash a pit (or use a partition editor) the partition will be kept. In theory an update zip could also change partitioning, but I never saw such a package.
