    Wow, really? That's strange. Toucanscrypt flashed just fine for me with the previous TWRP. (I haven't downloaded the new one or the new internal build yet)

    the new internal build gives you much more /system space.

    but you'll have to patch update-binary here and there like nitestalker says. I haven't gotten around to it yet.

    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?

    Almost sounds like 1 to many dirty flashes to me, or nearing the capacity for app storage space(or overloading the ram) causing most apps to crash upon startup.
    My last ditch recommendation is to nand backup everything you can, do a clean install, and get a nand browser for backup data, copy what you need frok the nand to the sdcard and manually restore little by little. Its a long and painful process, but it helps to restore what you want, and not unintentionally restore what could be causing the issue.

    Wow. No biggie, I'll wait until you do.

    Just checked to see if TB still works (it does), and found even more madness: no clue how this happened, but it seems that a lot of my apps got wiped out. Including Link2SD...meaning everything is probably all screwed up. Here's a list of what got wiped out: Journey to Kreisia, Alphadia Genesis, Angry Birds Star Wars 1&2, aSnes Free, Bejeweled 2&Blitz, Dark Summoner, End of Aspiration, Angry Birds Epic, Eve of the Genesis, Fantasy Defense, Final Fantasy 5, Fortuna Magus, Infinite Dunamis, Kaizin Rumble, Link2SD, Sexy Ringtone, and q few others (the Galaxy Rush I'm typing from is being bitchy itself).

    Thats one thing i dislike about linking apps(no matter the method), cause once that link breaks for whatever reason, you'll have partial files of apps trying to run while missing some components, causing what you experienced with all the force closinging.
    Not to mention that its a PITA to deal with.
    At this point it would he best to start with a fresh install and salvage what you can.

    I've experienced what you did many times, each with a different cause, and different "2sd-ext" methods, including both link2sd/mounts2sd apps, and a couple 2sd scripts.
    Somewhere down the road after prolonged use of a 2sd-ext, the scripts either get corrupt, or deleted and the ext formats itself under heavy use and abuse. Although this may not happen all the time(or happen at all), for everyone, but it does tend to happen to the more "fragile" lower-end sdcards. It goes to show that partioning/over-using these cards takes its toll, some more than others.

    it's issues like this, plus the extra installing and weird backing up, that made me come up with the os2sd in the first place.
    the card failures make me want to add another os2sd mod which looks for a card install and if not present boots from internal instead.

    Now that would be pretty handy for just in case the card gives way when using os2sd.

    yep, it appears so.
    I'll have to do a new build, that one has vanished.

    Don't enable ART in developer settings, it's still bootlooping yet. but it does build and start to run before it kill zygote.

    alright, new one uploading. I'll test it roughly as it uploads.

    the internal builds are way too big at the moment. don't even fit an OV previously-/data partition at 179MB!

    The newer builds? The most recent seems to fit fine, 176/179. Guess its time to start slimming it down again. Possibly remove some currently broken stuff that arent working, or playing well with the OV like the printer stuff, dev launcher, and maybe slim down the boot animation, or change it, along with less tones.
    Possibly could also move some system apps to data such as the browser and launcher.
    You could add a 2ext script and that would help free up the data partition after moving some system apps to data.
    Or find a way to merge/link parts of the cache partition to both system and/or data.
    Just a few thoughts.

    newer ones I haven't released.
    trimming is feasible. the only thing really broken at the moment is the still camera though.
    I suspect art bits are taking up space too since it's in the repo again and I've been messing with it.

    no linking or anything though, that's what the os2sd is about. the internal is as close to vanilla cm as I will get, and should remain compatible with existing linking methods... just gotta trim it to a size that'll fit an optimus S under 170MB.

    Aftet i trimmed my current set up, it comes out to 167/179. I removed the boot animation, all ui tones but the low battery, all notification tones but tweeters, all ringtones but BOOTES, all alarms but the rooster one. Apks: trebuchet(using holo hd launcher on /data) camera2(but not gallery), bluetooth and bluetoothext(i dont use bluetooth), calculator, calandersync, chromebookmarksync, picotts, Themechooser and themesprovider, vpndialog, soundrecorder, and voice dialer.

    I basically try to trim as much as i can without effecting my daily use, while maintaining basic core functions.
    I know many things i remove don't seem ideal to others, but its what works for me.
    I may try to slim it down even further to see what is removeable and what isn't.

    voice dialer includes /system/usr/srec which is another chunk of 2MB.
    you might be able to ferret out another MB from /system/lib looking for bluetooth, srec, speex, and so on.

    I think I need to chase my tail thru the chain of makefiles starting in vendor/cm/config/tiny.mk again and see what is being built that I don't want or need in there and add it to releasetools/extras.txt (or releasetools/trash.txt if it's useless.)

    Shinkenred: From my limited experiences with SD cards, disappearing files seem to indicate a card starting to go bad. You may want to backup everything onto a harddrive temporarily and do full read/write tests on the entire card. It maybe a good time to repartition too if no errors are found.

    nitestalkr: I removed almost the same items as you do, but had to move a few of them back, e.g. camera2 for video recording to work, and gallery for media cataloging. I've been looking for a way however to change trebuchet without borking the phone due to no launcher; could you share your steps please?

    superbigsquid: Thanks for the new os2sd. I would 2nd (3rd?) the idea of a thin internal build in case external sd fails, so we can still salvage whatever internal data necessary. Perhaps in that thin internal build we can remove the items nitestalkr mentioned. I'd also suggest abandoning the regular internal build at that point since it appears to be the source of much frustration, so there can be more focus on os2sd build.

    Will be installing os2sd for the 1st time on my OS tonight. Thanks again!

    it'll be a bare minimum internal for basic smartphone functions to work.
    I won't ditch internal until it's integrated with the os2sd and then the os2sd functions become optional instead.
    The only good way to do it with any customization would be using aroma installer.

    it's possible you'll have to paste the META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary from the rom to the sprint fix for it to work.

    The only reason i deleted camera2 is because its broken in the new build(but i kept gallery)
    For changeing trebuchet, all i did was install holo hd launcher from the play store(or launcher of your choice), set it as the default, and then deleted trebuchet in /system/app.

    oops.
    I uploaded it to another, non-shared, folder by accident.

    It had issues with experimental huge dalvik .props because I was testing art... the 0812 I am uploading now to the right folder corrects the dalvik settings.

    um, like I said before, don't enable art in developer settings. it WILL bootloop, guaranteed. You can battery pull or adb reboot recovery, and wipe /data to reset to dalvik though.

    You need to change the update binary with a more recent release, such as the newer tls enabled internal build.

    First flash TLS internal twrp. Then flash multi. This worked for me. No need to patch updater-binary.

    I flashed the 0812 os2sd ROM zip successfully. However, I can't flash the gapps skinny os2sd.zip. First time said could not executive update-binary. So, I pulled the update-binary from the ROM zip and placed it in the /META-INF/com/google/android folder in the gapps zip. Now I get the same error only this time it also says "Unable to stat /system/build.prop. No such file or directory. How do I fix this?

    it's too old and looking in the wrong partition for /system.
    use Skinny_4.4_Gapps-new.zip instead.
