    I did the internal, succeed on 1st try! Thanks a lot

    I got a 8G card, on the recovery menu>Advance>SD partition>partition SD card> - EXT Size:512 + , - Swap Size: 512 +, File system: ext4

    And how can I make the VFAT/FAT32 as the 1st partition?

    The Ext size, is that the total of the 3 ext4 partition, or one at a time and repeat 512, then 512, then 2048? Thanks.

    ok.
    the vfat is handled automagically by twrp, it will have all the space left after the other 3 partitions are made.
    those go, from the top of the screen down, 512, 512, 2048.

    just backup anything you want off the sd card first and set those numbers in twrp.
    The first 512 MB is for swap, make sure the toggle switch for ext is set to swap.
    then slide that control at the bottom of the screen. it'll take care of all the details of removing/resizing/adding/whatever for you.
    TechVendetta set up that formatting menu to make it easy for people to use the os2sd layout. without it, it is a PITA for people who aren't used to something like gparted or maybe minitool.
    I modified it to allow selecting between sd-ext and swap. I'm going to get rid of the option in the next release and make it just sd-swap because the sd-ext is silly with a 2GB data partition anyway.

    Default big-a** internal update

    new internal build uploaded.
    TLS enabled. /data and /system MTD partitions swapped for more space.

    still camera is broken, but videocam works.
    accelerometer is like butter. should be no more freeze issues or compass problems.

    requires new twrp. again. it's in the recovery folder.

    all previous releases are no longer compatible with the recovery, so make a backup before and after flashing the new recovery.
    if you get issues you can restore the previous version and its recovery in twrp.

    I added a new not-so Skinny_4.4_gapps_new.zip (it works on the OV) which probably won't fit on the Op S. You can use the old internal Skinny_4.4 gapps for the moment.
    I'll fix the bulid size later. it's got art bits in it that aren't running yet. They don't break anything but don't work either.
    This upload is mostly for your update fix.

    OS2SD yet to come.


    Not updating the OPs yet.

    Default Re: big-a** internal update

    I've skimmed the thread at least twice and I vaguley remember someone bringing it up, but the phone doesn't have an offline version of charging with this operating system? When I charge it with either my wall charger or the USB cord from my laptop, it'll always want to boot into the phone's rom. There's not fix for that, is there?

    I dont' know if it's my imagination or there's something to it, but does the phone seem to charge faster with a wall charger than the USB charger attached to my laptop? Would that be because it always mounts the SD card with the laptop charger and that takes more resources where as the wall charger wouldn't try to mount the SD card (haha) to the outlet in the wall?

    offline charging has always been and probably always will be broken.

    there is a kernel mod which charges faster with high power chargers.

    looking at their gerrit, aav6 hasn't done much with art. set arch armv6k to get around some build errors but they haven't touched it in a while.
    dunno if art will happen anytime soon.

    the camera, I'll figure out eventually.

    internal takes longer than os2sd, unless you have a slow card.
    still, you can watch the logcat go with adb if you want. There are several things that only happen on first boot, and it doesn't show the 'android is upgrading' with a counter as it builds the dalek-cache for the first time, it only shows the counter on later boots if you wipe the dalek-cache.
    I don't like the startup time, but the features in kitkat so exceed froyo and gingerbread that I deal with that.
    plus it's fun to have on my 'obsolete' phone, which makes me more tolerant of things like long startup time or having to long-press home and kill apps, and/or use fast reboot app, manually every so often.
    the last issue might be fixable with oom killer settings, but they got moved into the framework instead of the .props, and have to be changed in the build to mess with. I haven't yet.

    not mentioned.
    I'll look, the one I have on my sdcard works, dunno why the harddrive one is different.

    ok, try it again. this one should work.

    dang, it does.
    been using cwm for testing. didn't expect any differences. gotta dig into the twrp issue.

    ok, one more time.
    twrp required a new update-binary from the tls-enabled ROM for this to work. cwm, did not, must be more forgiving. cwm definitely has a better error log. twrp never gives details.
    I'll have to update the carrier fixes too probably. bleh.

    Success!
    Also, does this new build support linux swap partition to auto link with the /data partition link in Andie's Touchwiz JB slim ROM?
    I noticed that the partition info doesn't give the read out for the sd-ext partition.

    Update: Both Toucanscrypt and ConMod Int2Ext are not flashing when using the TLS enabled TWRP and new Internal build. It's the same issue as I had with the new Gapps("E: Error executing updater binary in zip"). I'm assuming that any .zip built to work with CWM will not work with TWRP unless there is a work-around, or something that can be done to this version of TWRP to allow CWM zips to be flashed, rather than editing each .zip individually.

    Although Crossbreeder Goodbye edition seems to flash just fine.

    Update2: For now, an easy work around for those who need one, is to take the update-binary from the new TLS enabled Internal ROM, and over write the preexisting update-binary within the .zip you are trying to flash using TWRP

    Uh-oh. After a blue-screen-of-not-waking-up happened for the third time in a while, I did a battery pull, went into recovery, and used the Wipecache zip. Once I rebooted, however, I started getting force closes for what seemed like EVERYTHING. Rebooting and letting things get settled for a couple minutes afterward hasn't helped anything, either. How do I go about stopping this nonsense?

    probably either restore a backup or reflash.

    ...nope. Dirty flash ain't work. Still getting a ton of force closing apps. I would hate to have to wipe and start over, my SD card isn't getting along with the Play Store (error 492), which is why I can't update anything. And getting the Link2SD script AND Toycanscrypt working are a royal pain.

    Gotta think of something, though; but none of the browsers are working on it.

    backup /data/app to a pc or a sdcard folder, if you wipe /data and put /data/app back, it'll rebuild decently on boot, but you'll lose your settings.
    it is the closest to a clean flash with all your apps you can get.

    also, shinkenred, if you're up for testing a theory, you can partition you little 2GB card with a 1GB fat and 1/384/768 for p2,p3,p4 and still use os2sd.

    my theory is that your nand is so horrid that the stock sdcard would run better in your phone than the internal memory.

    the repartition should clear any filesystem errors you've got currently on the card, too. just backup your vfat partition first.

    The card I have is a 16GB card, class 2. Just a lot of stuff on it. Not sure when the errors started, but it's been awhile.

    Definitely gonna look into that first option, though.

    Update: Then again...I can't seem to even FIND /data/app anywhere. None of the /data folders I have even lead into it. Can't check with Root Browser or Root Explorer, both are among the apps that crash.

    Also, to combat the dictionary not doing anything on its own, just download the English Completion Dictionary for Hackers Keyboard. Does the job nicely.

    This happened to me a few months back right before my 32gb sdcard mounted itself as RO with no way of fixing it, rendering it useless. Luckily it still reads(just cant write/copy-to/or delete files), so i waa able to back everything up onto my pc.

    Yea, its specific to the new TWRP update from what I've read from a few google searches. The update-binary just needs to be updated in the zip in order to flash. But that didnt work with ConMod int2extv2.

    Toucanscrypt(with unlimited flashed over) flashes(after swapping out the update-binary), but didnt help too much with memory space, just mirroed the /data onto /cache with the new internal build. Mounts2sd app works fine with this build though.

    Ouch. My 16GB card can still be written to...just not by Play Store. And these apps crashing are just random: Facebook, ColorNote, Gmail, YouTube, Chrome, QuickOffice, Juice Defender, like wow, really?

    Process android.process.media is what happens when Downloads goes poof, and there's process com.Google.gapps, but why is it Google Calendar & Play Store still work?
