Well Take 2 was a Fail as well but less epic.
I got past the white Hauwua screen and had the new screen with the blue glowing droid and ASCEND under him.
But I crashed there.
I know it supposed to take awhile to boot but I left it for 40 minutes and it never came out of it.
During the format stage I again got this:
E: format_volume: make_extf4fs failed on /dev/block/mcblk0p2
Error formatting /sd-ext!
Was that what killed me?
So close I can taste it.
