I was going by this definition of the /data partition, from some online docs I've been reading:
/data
"Also called userdata, the data partition contains the user’s data – this is where your contacts, messages, settings and apps that you have installed go. Wiping this partition essentially performs a factory reset on your device, restoring it to the way it was when you first booted it, or the way it was after the last official or custom ROM installation. When you perform a wipe data/factory reset from recovery, it is this partition that you are wiping".
...
This may help:
Without getting too technical, userdata encompasses all user data (apps, settings, plus your internal storage). Data contains only apps and settings. Data is found within userdata, so if you wipe userdata you wipe everything (apps, settings, photos, music, etc). If you wipe data your apps and settings are wiped, but not your photos, music, etc.

Colors do seem limited, but green seems to be one that works well for me, at least for the battery charging colors. I have green for fully charged, and that works well.

In fact, I just realized about the bug: if you let the "cursor" on the upper right corner (actually as default) and you just slide on the right up and down, it's going well.

The funny part is when you try to use the "cursor" on the left square, it's going mad. It's something jumping from blue to red in a sec. Nearly impossible to use it but when back to the upper right corner, it's all fine :cyclops: :confused:

I noticed the same behaviour. :cowboy:

To be honest, it doesn't help, though it's not your fault, and I appreciate your post. But now I need to check further, because it seems incorrect according to what I've been learning (including the original quote from Stack Exchange that your link answered).

I have no directory called "userdata", only "/data". So what does wiping userdata even mean? Everything I read seems to say or imply that userdata is the same as /data. I'll admit that the Android filesystem is pretty confusing, but it seems as if the sdcard is a part of /data, at least on my phone. I browsed into /data/media/0, and found the contents of my sdcard (/storage/emulated/0). If I delete a picture from this directory, it deletes the picture from the sdcard, so I can see it's the same files. Therefore, deleting the /data directory will delete the entire sdcard. So, on my system at least, /data is the same as userdata (whatever that is).

It's important to understand the terminology. Data or /data is a directory. Media or /media is a directory. Sdcard or /sdcard is a directory. Userdata is the name of a partition just like system or boot or vendor or cache are the names of partitions. Multiple directories can reside in a partition. In fact, they often overlap (like /data within userdata). /sdcard and /storage/emulated/0 (maybe others) can refer to the same exact place in the storage (and within userdata). I'm by no means an expert but: in Android it is very easy to overlap directory names within partitions. This can make terminology (directories and partitions) appear the same when in face they are completely different. A partition is typically a fixed area within the storage unit. One or more directories can point to an area within that fixed partition storage area.

I've been a Linux user for the past half dozen years, and worked a lot with partitions and directories, so I understand pretty well the difference. That's why I mentioned wiping directories, not partitions. Normally, you need to mount a partition (filesystem) as a directory/directories before doing anything to them. You can't really modify a partition itself.

With Linux, you can mount a partition's filesystem in more than one mountpoint, and you can mount a directory from one partition into a second mountpoint. But overlapping directories in a partition would be pretty hard, although not impossible. You don't mount partitions, actually, you mount filesystems, and filesystems usually don't have overlapping directories unless created by a madman. :)

But Android is not Linux, and it's a bit confusing how it's put together, so I don't claim to fully understand how it's organized. That's why I went in to explore and experiment a little to confirm that deleting a file in /data deleted that file in /sdcard.

The thing is, there is no partition named userdata that I can find. I can see that there is a file called userdata.img that is used to flash the phone, but it doesn't flash anything called userdata on my phone; from what I read, I can only guess that it ends up as the /data directory, with parts mounted in more than one location.

EDIT: After some more thought, I think what might be happening is that userdata.img might be a disk image that is mounted as /data. But /data is made up of more than one actual partition, and includes data and sdcard. So, flashing userdata.img effective replaces both data and sdcard, with defaults.

There is also a command: fastboot format userdata which as you might suspect, formats the userdata partition. You might be more experienced at this than myself, but obviously you have enough info to understand the partition/directory structure possible within this Android environment.

Ahh, thanks for that info - I haven't come across it so far. I'll have to see if I can find out what it does. I'm guessing it sets up the mountpoints for /data, and probably the sdcard area.

I've been mostly using local tools, or my newest find, "adb shell" which is especially useful for hacking and exploring. I'm pretty good with command lines, so I'm learning a lot using that, and it's easier to use than Busy Box, since there's a real keyboard.

You're welcome. I've learned a lot from Heisenberg's Guides 6P and 5X for Unlocking and rooting. He's a real treasure.

Let me just take the time to second this. Heisenberg's tutorials are fantastic. I have used them for both my 6P and 5X, for the 6P also to bring the phone back to fully stock later on.

Each step is described 100% and if you follow the steps nothing can go wrong.

Thank you Heisenberg! :good:

It is a little dated since it left out the new vendor partition but a good explanation nonetheless.

No. You already have the correct vendor.img on stock MMB29Q

You obviously know a heck of a lot more than I do about partitions and directories in Linux and android, but just to try and simplify this for you as I see it. In TWRP if you factory/reset you can then bootloader flash userdata (as per Heisenberg's thread) and return the phone to complete factory return. If you do not flash the userdata.img or format userdata to unencrypt it, then you have a system that is completely free of anything other than your sdcard data like pictures, music and app data. Wiping the system partition leaves some data behind from your previous rom like app data and programs in other directories. If you then flash your current rom it is considered a dirty flash because of the data that has remained. Factory/reset is a clean flash.

If you don't have any data on your sdcard or you have all your important stuff saved onto your computer, then I suggest a full factory/reset with a fastboot of userdata.img and a full fastboot flash of vendor, system, boot, cache and recovery images. That will get you to when you pulled the phone out of the box and the latest google images Q build. If you want to keep your sdcard intact yet do the above process then only leave out userdata.img in the bootloader flash. I hope this is clear enough for you and the OP doesn't go off the rails on this very OT discussion.

You're welcome. I've learned a lot from Heisenberg's Guides 6P and 5X for Unlocking and rooting. He's a real treasure.
Me too; I started out by following his guides for rooting and for manually applying a stock update before installing Pure Nexus. The 5X is the first phone I felt comfortable with modifying, mainly because I didn't need to use any mysterious programs, and especially because I didn't need to use Windows, which I only run in a Virtual Machine every once in a while (Vista - ugh).

Once I learned how to do that, I wanted to learn more. I'm only beginning to see what's going on. And your previous comment about the terminology is good advice to remember, as many people interchange the partition and directory names, which does make it harder to figure out what is going on. Partitions can really only be deleted, created, and formatted until they're mounted in a directory. Only then can the files be accessed.

I began thinking about how TWRP has options to wipe both data and the sdcard. So, I think I (or rather the articles I read) was probably incorrect in thinking userdata = /data; I think wiping data in twrp, for example, acts on the actual data partition, not the directory, and so doesn't delete the sdcard. But if you were to erase the entire /data directory, that would delete the sdcard, because it's mounted in /data. And flashing userdata.img probably acts on /data, replacing both the data and the sdcard contents with defaults (because both are mounted in /data).

tl;dr: the original quote that Heisenberg commented on about "/data partition" was indeed incorrect, since /data is a directory, and not a single partition.

Sorry for getting so involved in a mostly off-topic discussion. I'll try to stop doing that.

Thanks. This article, which I read just before my post, both helped and confused me. This is the one that says /data is also called userdata. It confuses directories with partitions, and so is not really correct. The directory /data includes both the data partition and the sdcard partition (mounted in a subdirectory). If you wipe the data partition in TWRP, it won't touch the sdcard data, but if you delete the /data directory's files, you will wipe out the sdcard data, too. Just a head's up.

This may or may not confuse you more.

In fact, I just realized about the bug: if you let the "cursor" on the upper right corner (actually as default) and you just slide on the right up and down, it's going well.

The funny part is when you try to use the "cursor" on the left square, it's going mad. It's something jumping from blue to red in a sec. Nearly impossible to use it but when back to the upper right corner, it's all fine :cyclops: :confused:

Yeah, I found using both the sliders to get the desired color and brightness quite tricky. I use 2 shades of green (or rather, green at different brightness) and i like it.
Charged 90%: 000c00 for barely there green (the settings preview will show black, but the LED will be green)
Charged 100%: 00ff00 for green at full power!!1!!11
And I use 474610 for Charging.

Free time to try different hex color codes and quite a bit of patience might give us interesting color options.

Forced encryption is disabled yes, but doesn't mean you can't be encrypted if you want to. Sounds like you are

    Well after a bit of an absence while rebuilding the rom from scratch for 7.0 i am finally pleased to announce the return of PureNexus!!

    a couple things to note:
    *not all mods from marshmallow will be in the first build so be patient as i add your favorite mods, etc!
    *as of right now the rom only has substratum legacy support. will update to full blown substratum as the stability increases for N!
    *changelog doesnt display anything for this first build as all changes are listed on github/xda op, changelog will be back next release!

    ok, Lets get to the goodies!!

    Okay guys the time is here, finally 7.1.2 for purenexus officially released!!!

    a couple things to note:
    *the rom is now signed with private keys starting with 7.1.2 this is good for security purposes, but you will be required to clean flash this build, going forward you can dirty flash as long as it is an official release
    *i have removed the built in gapps for "nexus devices" i however will not respond to any bug reports using open gapps, use the newly made BeansGapps alongside purenexus for the best results!!
    *this release mostly is focused on stability and getting all the features from 7.1.1 into 7.1.2 without issues, next release will be geared towards going over the feature request section of the g+ community
    *with 7.1.2 google updated the radio and boot loader i suggest fast-booting those as well

    ok, Lets get to the goodies!!
