You did notice that there was a issue with internal storage right?? It was suggested I could fix using a init file but I've not had a chance to work on it yet. If you happen to have the same issue and fix it, please share and let me know what you did. ;)

ups, sorry, I did not notice
Link to the exact issue?
Sure if I find a fix I will share all sources. That's what I always do now, outside the touch code

not sure of the source of the issue, but its internal sd/storage is read only. So no backups can be made to internal storage. Restoring data works fine tho.

TWRP doesnt have this issue tho, so I think its in the device repo and prolly something simple. lol

Also this is only known to work with the G900F so far. The kernel src I have on github is technically for the G900D, but its working in CWM. Just seems to be missing model specific dts files.

Not having the device makes it a too long debug process. Also, seems few users interested in debugging it
About write to sdcard, it is probably a selinux permission issue. At least that's what I most often encountred
I looked at your twrp sources. They use custom selinux permission files

Well, in fact they are using Samsung enforced permissions and they run this at boot:
Code:
toolbox setenforce permissive

You'll have to mount /system for that than unmount it as we have still no setenforce in busybox (they are in Pruvot custom busybox repo though)

Can you try this:
  • ensure you are not using the recovery.fstab file in your device tree but the fstab.qcom
  • adb shell:
Code:
mount /system
/system/bin/toolbox setenforce permissive

See if you can now access internal storage in write mode

Agreed, debugging w/o the device is a pita. lol
I seen that as well and had the tester try to set it. Not sure if they mounted system first, so will have them try it again to make sure. If they did, it didnt help.

I will have to check and see which fstab I have it using too. When I hear from my tester I will test all your suggestions. And thanks.

Its using the fstab.qcom.

Oh, you're also doing it blindly :D
It can be possible, but not with such a non existing feedback from users

If you think testers are just able to boot and check, try to add the needed lines to postrecoveryboot.sh (inherited from msm8960-common/recovery)
Code:
mount [BLKID] /system
/system/bin/toolbox setenforce permissive
umount /system

However, I think you need the blkid, not sure the path symlink to partition will work
You cannot just make a mount /system from postrecoveryboot.sh as the fstab file is not yet generated by recovery at that level

Thank You for all you did.

    6.57.8 uploaded to goo

    However, their servers have issue to refresh for now
    13
    Update 6.26.6
    Check main thread for change log

    It can simplify flashing for people having a hard time to have the recovery stick after flashing it
    The root on exit bug was also affecting the "fix recovery" on exit

    - In odin, untick reboot
    - Flash in odin
    - when done, reboot into recovery directly, do not let it boot into rom
    - from recovery, reboot to system
    - it will prompt to fix root and recovery
    - always answer yes to questions

    done

    6.48.1
    • add option to directly parse time_daemon data files
      this gives an alternative to failed load of time_daemon for some devices like klte
    • refresh current time in menu header after time daemon fixes
    • fix first passkey prompt screen did not show proper background under some circumstances

    Download temp link: http://d-h.st/users/philz_touch/?fld_id=37658#files

    Please try the new option to directly parse time daemon data files
    It should fix your time settings
