How to increase cache partition ( or any partition ) on Ubuntu Touch phone? Question.



  • From terminal even...

    I don't know... Mine shows

    /dev/disk/by-partlabel/cache     679M  768K  664M   1% /android/cache
    


  • @mihael for some reason it did not change/save even after I saved id with w and rebooted and formated the cache ???

    But when I saved it the table was this:

    SO WHAT NOW, WHY IT DID NOT SAVE???



  • I'm sorry, I really don't know... Maybe it's some linux issue that someone with more experience could shed light upon...



  • What does df -h from twrp console show?



  • @mihael Did you do it on the phone TWRP terminal or via adb? I mean the whole repartitioning. Cos I have used adb shell for it.



  • @mihael /dev/disk/by-partlabel/cache 496M 4.2M 482M 1% /android/cache



  • @Stefano I believe I did it through ssh...



  • @mihael I give it a try again later, maybe I'll figure it out. (will try with TWRP terminal as well)



  • Let me know...



  • @mihael I managed to do it. The problem was that I did not format the newly created partitions properly and did not change the names of them as I did not seen such an option in fdisk , but, there is an expert menu under ,x, and there is option to rename. After I renamed it, I format it and now it shows partition 43 = 723m, so I think that should suffice. Will try now to flash 16.04 now, we'll see what happens now! Thank you a lot for your help.

    Edit. It flashed 16.04 without failing in recovery :-) :-) :-)



  • @Stefano Wonderful!!! Thank you too for all your posts!
