How to create a 2nd partition to install Android apps on an SD card

Tuesday 08th of September 2009 /
If you’ve rooted your Android phone, it may have been because you wanted to free up space and install apps on your SD card. Certain ROM’s have this feature built into, so all a user has to do is create a second partition on his or her SD card. This tutorial will show how to partition an SD card without installing any programs or SDK’s.Before we go any further, you will need to root your phone for this to work. For the 1,000th time, THIS IS RISKY, CAN DESTORY YOUR PHONE, AND CAN VOID YOUR WARRANTY. accepts absolutely no responsibility if problems arise from rooting your phone; you root at your own risk. If you need instructions on how to root, AndroidAndMe has an excellent explanation.Now onto the partition. Some like to use a Linux live CD, the Android SDK, or programs like Paragon Partition Manager. Or you can just do it manually through Android like I’ll show here. To give credit where’s it’s due, this tutorial is directly based on this great explanation available at XDA.How to create a second partition directly from your G1Make s

How To Partition Your SD Card For Your Nook Color

Saturday 18th of June 2011 /
I loaded up CyanogenMod7 on my Nook Color via microSD card (grab it here thanks to XDA member verygreen) and it works great but one of the biggest issues that I had was finding a way to partition my sd card to open up the unused space on it after writing CM7 on it.  There’s plenty of instructions in the XDA forum’s but since I’m a relative noob with this stuff a lot of it went right over my head.  I was able to eventually figure it out and I figured that I’d give all you noob’s out there some simple instructions on how to partition your sd card to open up your CM7 loaded Nook Color.I’m assuming that you’ve already downloaded WinDisk Image 32 and have read up on how to flash your Android ROM onto your microSD card at Nook Devs and set up SDK so you can access adb (also at Nook Devs so we can skip right to the partitioning.First thing you’ll need is to download either EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition or MiniTool Partition Wizard.  Both work but I used MiniTool Partition Wizard because I found it to be a slightly more function

God Mode brings unbelievable speeds to new custom Android ROMs

Thursday 21st of July 2011 /
While there are a lot of people out there who will argue that benchmarks are ridiculous, the opposite argument always remains. Benchmarks are a great way to let you know how your Android device is performing overall, and also let you know just how much better your device is than your buddies. In the latest hack from XDA member and well known HTC Evo 4G ROM’er Virus, he has introduced what he is calling “God Mode”. What does it do, you ask? Check out the image above and see for yourself. The tweak has been inserted into the wildly popular Kingdom ROM for the Evo 4G, and has the device getting Quadrant score of up and over 1900 (insert “over 9000″ joke here).//So, how is it done? According to XDA:Leaving all the technical aspects aside (as they are not 100% clear to me), God Mode in essence is a new yaffs2+ext2 partition made in the rom, which drastically improves the I/O performance on a device.A relatively simple explanation for a remarkably complicated and possibly game changing tweak. Any of our readers out there using Virus’ Kingdom ROM, be su

Learning the Android Hardware and Operating System

Thursday 07th of October 2010 /
Hi! I'm looking for some resources that explain how the Android hardware and OS works as a whole. Most of the posts I see on here have to do with specific areas. My goal is have a better understanding about:1. HBOOT - Different versions, How it works, how to update it, etc.2. Recovery - Different versions, How it works, how to update it, etc.3. System Partitions - System, Cache, SD-EXT, etc. - What each partition contains4. Kernels - Different versions, how to load/replace5. RadiosI looked for an "Android for Dummies" book and notice there's one for app dev coming out in December -- which I'll probably get. But I'd like to know more about the OS itself first.Any suggestions?

Quick and dirty how-to: Android 4.4 on the Nexus 4 (step by step)

Friday 01st of November 2013 /
This was pretty easy, here's a method to get a working debug build of 4.4 plus the Nexus 5 apps on your Nexus 4. Follow the steps, as written, in order and things should be FC free. 1. Make sure your bootloader is unlocked. See the stickies. Ask for help. You can not skip this step.2. Download these things to your computer: . You're free to try another. My own build works, others may work, but for sure this build works and the dev is kind enough to share it. Thank him, too. Copy it to your SD card partition on your Nexus 4. Unzip the file, copy the folder to your Nexus 4's SD card folder.3. Flash ClockWorkMod Recovery. Do not use any other recovery for now. Use this particular version if you want to do it exactly the same as i have done: . See the stickies or ask for help if needed.4. Back yo shiz up. If you don't back yo shiz up, you are not allowed to cry later. Period; full stop.5. After backing things up, wipe your user data in CWM recovery. 6. Flash the ROM from the Rootzwiki post via CWM recovery.7. Flash the G Apps from the RootzWiki post via CWM recovery.8. Reboot your phone

A Future Version Of Android Could Potentially Break A Large Number Of Root Apps, Chainfire Explains

Monday 20th of January 2014 /
Much of Android's development is done out in the open, which is how several Android developers noticed that a recent commit to the Android Open Source Project master tree would break many of your favorite root apps. This is the result of a newly implemented security feature, rather than an active effort to lock things down on Google's part. Nevertheless, it could result in some inconvenience, so developer Chainfire has taken to his Google+ page to detail what will happen if the change is not reverted before the release of a future version of Android.Many apps extract files to directories located on the /data partition and execute them as root, but this recent commit prevents them from doing so. This is good, as it makes it more difficult for people with malicious intent to execute a script on the /data partition or take advantage of an exploit to achieve root. The issue, as Chainfire explains, is that this change will also break many root apps that you actually want to use.There is no one fix that circumvents this issue in all use cases, but there are several ways app developers can
