http://evervolv.com/get/ev_tenderloin-7.0-testing-2016.10.05.zip Ok this isn't block style install which allows changing the size of system to what you want and use all of it. Its a slower install time but not much slower then before. Also some BT changes that allow me to use my headset. Test out BT and let me know. I'm still testing myself. Another change is root is disabled by default. You will have to go into Evervolv toolbox to enable root.

F2FS installs. If you want to try out F2FS you will have to wipe your data parition which includes your internal sd card. Some steps if you want to backup your data. PLEASE NOTE DON'T DO THIS IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING CAN CAUSE ISSUES OR LOST DATA. IF YOU DON'T DO THIS IT WILL STILL WORK WITH THE CURRENT FORMAT EXT4.
-- Flash the F2FS compatible TWRP Recovery
-- Boot into Recovery

-- Advanced > Fix Permissions
-- Wipe > Advanced Wipe > Cache & Dalvik Cache
-- Flash the 2-12-15 test build and gapps to ensure you got them
-- Reboot to system

[UPGRADE(Dirty Flash)]
I have noticed if you dirty flash on first boot you may experience a little lag or possible reboot. After it settles down no issues. Not sure if its art related on upgrades or what. Its hard to pin point as it only happens once and smooth after that. Recommend after an upgrade let it settle in before playing hard.


Thanks

FIrst boot is a little slow but that is due to art. I always recommend a clean install when upgrading but if you feel luck. Backup and try a dirty flash. If you have issues run a clean install and if you still have issues please post with a logcat. You can upload via bugreport in the toolbox under settings. If going from a differnt rom other then evervolv lollipop always clean install. ALWAYS REMEMBER TO BACKUP its important if you don't want to loose anything

NOTE: NEED a clean install if moving from a previous version and or another ROM.

Flashing from cm or any other ROM will require a clean install, dirty flashes can cause random reboots and random errors

I am not responsible for bricked devices, lost data, etc, etc. You all know the drill. BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP

i would like to thank Flemmard, Jcsullins, Dorregaray, Invisiblek, Milaq, and anyone else that helped to make this happen. More great work to come.

TP Toolbox v0.42 Complete Data Reset Guide with Updated Links

NOTICE: THIS THREAD WAS ABANDONED BY THE OP, BUT I WILL KEEP THE LINKS IN THIS POST UPDATED :)

This guide is for a complete data reset to start from scratch. You should only need to use TP Toolbox to either adjust partition sizes, or start from scratch if any partitions got corrupted or you get errors while adjusting partitions or installing new ROMs.

If you end up having to start from scratch in TP Toolbox v0.42, follow these steps:
- Download a TP Toolbox Compatible ROM
- Download a TP Toolbox Compatible GApps
- Download a TP Toolbox Compatible TWRP
I recommend keeping those files on your PC hard drive so you can always re-use them in the future if needed.

1. In the TP Toolbox v0.42 main menu, do a 'Complete Data Reset' to start from scratch
2. Select the 'Install Android' option from the main menu
3. Copy the 3 above files from your PC to the "tpinstall" folder after the TP is mounted
4. When given the option to adjust partition sizes, increase the System partition to at least 1312mb
5. Finish install, and reboot to TWRP
6. While in TWRP, flash the newer 3/24/17 TWRP 3.1.0.0
7. Reboot into the new TWRP that you just flashed
8. In TWRP advanced wipe menu, wipe the System partition
9. While still in TWRP, flash the Wifi model ROM or the 4G model ROM along with some OpenGapps

Wow.
Thank you flintman for giving our touchpad a treat of fresh nougat.
I increased the system size to 1.5 gb several days ago and waited for your nougat. Now downloading it...

Edit: are we required to use the new twrp recovery in the OP? I have twrp 3.0.2 with an older time stamp.

Yes use the one in the op you will get an error (not fatal) on older recoveries.

Remember to upsize your system partition.

I actually enlarged the System partition to 1500mb just to be safe, and am testing the Nano OpenGApps. So far everything works great! I've installed several different apps, and all seem to work just fine with no FCs. I also get to test out the apps I'm developing on the Nougat OS, so that's really nice. I do miss CM theme support and the Evervolv toolbox, but I promise to be very patient; as I know those are out of your hands. :angel: I also flashed AdAway to the system and that is also functioning fine.

EDIT: For those who would like a flashable zip of AdAway to flash it to the System, I attached it to this post.

I dirty flashed over evervolve 6.0.1 and it boots up in about 6 minutes.
It feels much faster than 6.0.1 and the multi window is amazing.
There is no evervolve toolbox tab in setting, so there is no option to change the cpu frequency.
In the OP, it mentioned evervolve toolbox for bug report. Is the toolbox supposed to be absent?

Edit: second question: where do we control root permissions?

Im surprised a dirty flash worked. As stated above not alot of features have been added but the toolbox access at the moment is only though the launcher you should see toolbox just like any other app. Root permission is controlled though the toolbox as well.

How can we promote this thread to the xda news portal? Flintman deserves a spot there.

Edit: there is no thanks button any more on XDA? I can not find that button.
Edit: now the thanks button shows up. Weird.

Toolbox is located in the launcher for now. All features will be added back little by little. 8) trying to get a good base and then we move on.

1312 for system, 1 gig for external and rest in data. I

Sent from my Nexus 6 using XDA-Developers mobile app

Ok, it looks like my setup. I find in touchpad toolbox the partition "media". So "media is like "external" right?
And about "cm-cache", i think i set it up in the past from 200 to 1000. Is that better? So normally yes because
of more. But i don't know how android handle it. That's why i ask.

Hi didn't switch to f2fs. I downloaded the files and used pc tptb for the installation.. Currently I am trying to get wifi working better. I installed the job new rom and cm 12 going to the WiFi forum. I have just bought a new one that's 16 gig, it has WiFi access but falters..
But on this issue I will try to get it going on the other TouchPad see if it works..

    Biggest thing is need to update system size and use new recovery.

    Alot of features have been turned on yet this is ALPHA its not a daily. I released for all to play with and we will grow on this. 8)

    Ok new build is up. I have switched away from Block style install. Block style is designed more for devices that have a fixed system partition to speed up install time. With the touchpad your able to change partition sized but Block style doesn't allow for that. Install is a little slower, not that noticeable to me, but the extra install time allow for you to make system partition what ever size you want. Also changed BT and im able to connect to my BT headset now. Test it out and let me know. Im still testing but wanted to get something out to you all before i go. If it doesn't connect the first time try a few times.

    Thanks

    Hey all been super busy at work and getting ready for a cruise in which i head out Friday. I have been digging into BT when i have a spare sec and i seem to fix one thing to break another so really need to sit down and figure that out. Once back from my cruise ill have more time to sit down and hammer out some issues.

    Just wanted to give an update.

    Thanks
