Hi,
I'm making this thread for guiding some ppl to learn Edify Installation Script Syntax's

I promise u will find everything about Edify updater-Script here...


DO NOT USE NOTEPAD OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT SOFTWARE FOR MAKING UPDATER-SCRIPT, THEREFOR ERROR 6

RECOMMEND SOFTWARE FOR EDITING UPDATER-SCRIPT.
NOTEPAD++

@ALL plz helping me here...

If u have any prob... post ur Amend update-script here will convert it to Edify updater-script...

Code:
copy_dir PACKAGE:SDEXT SDEXT:----------mount("ext4","/dev/block/mmcblk0p2","/sd-ext");
.......................................package_extract_dir("sdext", "/sd-ext");
this code only works on ext3 or ext4 i think the chef who is creating an updater-script should specify this. for ext2 you need to mount it as ext2, you can also try "auto" but might encounter issues with the recovery running kernel, and other stuff
only ext3 can be mounted as ext4 and vice-versa

also for ease of use I will provide the symlinking from my updater-script for toolbox and busybox since is pretty unhandy to write them - should apply to any toolbox and busybox version
Code:
ui_print("-Creating toolbox symlinks");
symlink("toolbox", "/system/bin/chownto", "/system/bin/getevent", "/system/bin/getprop", "/system/bin/ifconfig", "/system/bin/iftop", "/system/bin/ioctl", "/system/bin/log", "/system/bin/nandread", "/system/bin/newfs_msdos", "/system/bin/notify", "/system/bin/schedtop", "/system/bin/sendevent", "/system/bin/setprop", "/system/bin/smd", "/system/bin/start", "/system/bin/stop",	"/system/bin/vmstat", "/system/bin/watchprops", "/system/bin/wipe", "/system/bin/top");

ui_print("-Creating busybox symlinks");
symlink("/system/xbin/busybox", "/system/xbin/[", "/system/xbin/[[", "/system/xbin/addgroup", "/system/xbin/adduser", "/system/xbin/adjtimex", "/system/xbin/ar", "/system/xbin/arp",

Code:

is pretty self explanatory what is does, prints the text between "" on screen

and as a bonus and ease of use (for my experience show and tell is the best method) this is my updater-script used in the last version of my rom, to see a start to end working updater-script (edify)

some are rom specific but take them as examples

Also be very carefully what binary you use since there are some version floating around, and with the update-binary comes the syntax.
For example:
with some versions of binary the mount command
Code:
mount("ext4","/dev/block/mmcblk0p2","/sd-ext");
requires 3 parameters
Code:
mount("ext3", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p26", "/data");
requires 4 if you use only 3 you'll get some error
This happened to me 2 times already
Maybe other commands have changed syntax with other binaries, this is the only one I have encounter.
Hope all the info helps, I'm pretty unskilled on Edify syntax myself, I think I've spent 1 week to convert from update to updater an create a working script

Code:
copy_dir PACKAGE:SDEXT SDEXT:----------mount("ext4","/dev/block/mmcblk0p2","/sd-ext");
.......................................package_extract_dir("sdext", "/sd-ext");
this code only works on ext3 or ext4 i think the chef who is creating an updater-script should specify this. for ext2 you need to mount it as ext2, you can also try "auto" but might encounter issues with the recovery running kernel, and other stuff
only ext3 can be mounted as ext4 and vice-versa

also for ease of use I will provide the symlinking from my updater-script for toolbox and busybox since is pretty unhandy to write them - should apply to any toolbox and busybox version

is pretty self explanatory what is does, prints the text between "" on screen

and as a bonus and ease of use (for my experience show and tell is the best method) this is my updater-script used in the last version of my rom, to see a start to end working updater-script (edify)

some are rom specific but take them as examples

Also be very carefully what binary you use since there are some version floating around, and with the update-binary comes the syntax.
For example:
with some versions of binary the mount command
Code:
mount("ext4","/dev/block/mmcblk0p2","/sd-ext");
requires 3 parameters
Code:
mount("ext3", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p26", "/data");
requires 4 if you use only 3 you'll get some error
This happened to me 2 times already
Maybe other commands have changed syntax with other binaries, this is the only one I have encounter.
Hope all the info helps, I'm pretty unskilled on Edify syntax myself, I think I've spent 1 week to convert from update to updater an create a working script

Hmm..that explains the code 6 errors when nothing seems wrong with the script..

It's bcoz of using windows 'notepad' or 'wordpad' or something like that software for editing updater-script....

Plz use notepad++ for editing updater-script....

N no more facing error6...

Add if/elif/fi to this if you can get the syntax..

If u create ur updater-script into notepad and switched to notepad++... u will get error6...

Make full updater-script into notepad++

I always use Notepad+. Still I've got that error on some scripts..Anyway nowadays I dont..

Add if/elif/fi to this if you can get the syntax..

this is my updater-script used in the last version of my rom, to see a start to end working updater-script (edify)


delete("/data/local");
delete("/data/app");
delete_recursive("/data/data/com.android.vending/cache");


bro. plz mount ur data partition b4 editing/deleting anything on DATA partition...


run_program("installbusybox");

its not necessary bcoz u already symlink ur busybox in updater-script with this permission.

Code:
set_perm(0, 0, 04755, "/system/xbin/busybox");

Doesnt this work for you?

Code:
mount("MTD", "sdext", "/sdext");

No. its not working coz sdext is not a MTD/Partition...

The only problems I have had is related to sd-ext mount & copy, so atm i've solved with the a2sd+script, but this is not a solution.

Anyone have found the "functional" script to mount propertly sdext?

try this its works for me...
Code:
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "-t", "auto", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p2", "/sd-ext");
package_extract_dir("sdext", "/sd-ext");

thanks, as i've said im still basic @ edify syntax :)
but a few more posts here and ill clean my script :))

either
Code:
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "-t", "auto", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p2", "/sd-ext");
package_extract_dir("sdext", "/sd-ext");
either you mount it as ext4 which also works for ext3

mount/format/copy sdext is not a good idea, because the Recovery is not under control of ROM zipfile. ROM can not assume that kernel of recovery support required FS format.
So the best way is mount /sdcard(fat32), copy sd-ext file to /sdcard/, then unzip/copy files at first boot time.
Code:
mount("vfat","/dev/block/mmcblk0p1","/sdcard");
ui_print("Unpacking SDCARD files...");
package_extract_dir("sd-ext", "/sdcard");

    Hi,
    I'm making this thread for guiding some ppl to learn Edify Installation Script Syntax's

    I promise u will find everything about Edify updater-Script here...


    DO NOT USE NOTEPAD OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT SOFTWARE FOR MAKING UPDATER-SCRIPT, THEREFOR ERROR 6

    RECOMMEND SOFTWARE FOR EDITING UPDATER-SCRIPT.
    NOTEPAD++

    @ALL plz helping me here...

    If u have any prob... post ur Amend update-script here will convert it to Edify updater-script...

    copy_dir PACKAGE:SDEXT SDEXT:----------mount("ext4","/dev/block/mmcblk0p2","/sd-ext");
    .......................................package_extract_dir("sdext", "/sd-ext");
    this code only works on ext3 or ext4 i think the chef who is creating an updater-script should specify this. for ext2 you need to mount it as ext2, you can also try "auto" but might encounter issues with the recovery running kernel, and other stuff
    only ext3 can be mounted as ext4 and vice-versa

    also for ease of use I will provide the symlinking from my updater-script for toolbox and busybox since is pretty unhandy to write them - should apply to any toolbox and busybox version

    some are rom specific but take them as examples

    Also be very carefully what binary you use since there are some version floating around, and with the update-binary comes the syntax.
    For example:
    with some versions of binary the mount command
    Code:
    mount("ext4","/dev/block/mmcblk0p2","/sd-ext");
    requires 3 parameters
    Code:
    mount("ext3", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p26", "/data");
    requires 4 if you use only 3 you'll get some error
    This happened to me 2 times already
    Maybe other commands have changed syntax with other binaries, this is the only one I have encounter.
    Hope all the info helps, I'm pretty unskilled on Edify syntax myself, I think I've spent 1 week to convert from update to updater an create a working script

    run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "-t", "auto", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p2", "/sd-ext");

    this works on any type of ext

    Hi,
    after learning more about Edify Syntax...found some useful info...

    here is two method for writing boot.img

    Code:
    package_extract_file("boot.img","/tmp/boot.img");
    write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img", "boot");
    delete("/tmp/boot.img");

    or

    Code:
    assert(package_extract_file("boot.img", "/tmp/boot.img"),
           write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img", "boot"),
           delete("/tmp/boot.img"));
