What this script does, is forking of a secondary delayed script the Debian environment executes once the Android init is done. You can download your original boot image from your device, from your vendor or from less official sources on the Internet, all depending on your type of phone and its openness. If you want to enjoy the real freedom, use full Linux boot system. Quote: Originally Posted by msticninja I'm trying to make an auto install script within the initramfs.

Many mods require these powerful root commands, but the process of installing BusyBox can be a bit confusing for the uninitiated. I think 8gb on board is generous but there's usually a reason why it has that. You can use gnome-desktop-environment if you got the hardware for it, but for smaller systems I'd recommend instead. If the filesystem size is less than 3 megabytes, mke2fs will use the filesystem type floppy. If the -O option is used to explicitly add or remove filesystem options that should be set in the newly created filesystem, the resulting filesystem may not be supported by the requested fs-type.
If this option is is not specified, mke2fs will pick a single default usage type based on the size of the filesystem to be created. These partitions are configured in the device tree, so changing them is significantly more complicated than just running a partition editor. What root mods have you encountered that required the BusyBox commands to be installed on your device? The Tablet maker didn't think you should limit yourself to 8gig thats why they put the card there to begin with. If so, how do I compile that? Here you'd actually ran Debian on your device! By joining our community you will have the ability to post topics, receive our newsletter, use the advanced search, subscribe to threads and access many other special features. Code: mkbootimg --kernel zImage --ramdisk initrd. It may also be used by the block allocator. Is there a way to grab dmesg from a boot looping kernel on Android? Please, report them to the author.
This can be used to determine the location of the backup superblocks for a particular filesystem, so long as the mke2fs parameters that were passed when the filesystem was originally created are used again. But what I can download is only source code. You might have problems with it though, and may need to unpack it, edit some scripts for mounting root, etc and repackage it. If the -J option is not specified, the default journal parameters will be used to create an appropriately sized journal given the size of the filesystem stored within the filesystem. This is set as default. This can be useful when creating disk images for virtual machines. It also maximizes the range of contiguous data blocks, which can be useful for certain specialized use cases, such as supported Shingled Drives.
If omitted, block-size is heuristically determined by the filesystem size and the expected usage of the filesystem see the -T option. By default this script does nothing. One feature of having a locked bootloader, is that if an image is flashable, it must be genuine i. If the filesystem size is greater than or equal to 3 but less than 512 megabytes, 8 will use the filesystem type small. Keep the sector boundaries aligned with the factor as the first partition on the card when shipped.
The normal compat symlinks 'mkfs. You may need more storage later anyway. All done, no need to re-flash the device or anything. The image is basically just a concatenation of the kernel zImage and initramfs. Plus I have Arch chroot on my phone.
Formatting disks, creating filesystems, etc. But truth be told, it's a quick and painless process, which I'll outline below. And I have installed busybox. My final goal is to acquire detailed partitioning information including the start and end address of each partition on my android phone , either using fdisk or parted. Here below you find a ready-made root file system up to this point described, i. Feel free to change it.
If you happen to remove e. This significantly speeds up filesystem initialization. Here the init process lives in the chroot environment despite of being top of the process tree, and the ssh server sshd in the genuine top root, despite of being below init in the process tree. For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. If mke2fs is run as mkfs. Is there any document that proves? Problem, though: we've had a requirements change, and need support for creating ext3 and maybe ext4 filesystems, which BusyBox does not support.
