I'm going to make LVM possible on i9300

What this will bring to device:
  • Join /Data and /extsdcard partitions (10 GB+32 GB = 42 GB of fast memory)
  • Snapshots, easy rollbacks in time
  • Easily resize partitions, make /system and /cache smaller, make /data bigger (even more data can be stored)
Tasks:
  • Compile CM10.1 kernel with LVM2 module
  • maybe: Kernel should be configured to boot android from LVM volume (somewhere in ramfs)
  • Compile TWRP with lvm utilities included and partitons list updated
  • Design new partiton table, for example /system untouched, /data /cache /preload removed then created in LVM
  • Test

Any linux experienced guy is welcome

Are you removing sd card often? It's same as swap, remove card, get crash/data damage/etc.
I won't add system to lvm anyway, so ROM can't become damagedd
Yes I do. I have a 64gb microsd card and I'm using it for carrying big files such as image backups, linux ISOs, movies(to watch via HDMI) etc.
In fact this is the only reason why I have to keep buying Samsung's damned closed source buggy exynos devices :mad:

One day if google come up with a device that has mmc slot, I'll say "Goodbye" to samsung.
