Default Howto install DATA2SD: Guide



Using Sibere’s DATA2SD: Unlimited internal memory for your Desire


Data2SD is a script for increasing the memory of your HTC Desire's Internal memory

Just see the screenshot below. The Internal memory (total) of Desire should actually show 148 mb. Mine shows 724 Mb after applying Sibere's Data2SD. You can increase it theoretically to any size limited only by your sd card. Sibere recommends to stay below 2Gb.





I've thoroughly re-edited my original post. Installing Data2SD has never been easier.

As I said previously, All Credits for the development of Data2SD go to Sibere. I just took all his commands and made them into a flashable zip for you!

Ok, Instructions:

Ahem...First, a small recommendation. If you want a Stock Rooted ROM with most features of every other ROM out there, but with full Data2SD support, and best stability, Checkout StarBurst ROM!

Now, to get on to Data2SD installation for the rest of the ROMs..

If you havent read Sibere's entire OP, I urge you to read it completely before embarking on Data2SD installation. This is not a shortcut to the code. This is just a method of making it easier.


Once again, to recapitulate,
A rooted Rom with Busybox and init.d support, and which has a kernel supporting ext4 is an absolute requirement for using Data2SD. Note also that by default the stock rooted rom neither has Busybox, init.d or kernel support for ext4. If your Rom doesnt satisfy any of these conditions, you can't use the following zips/the code method.

Updated Instructions and Zips (14/Mar/2011)

I've streamlined the installation procedure so as to make it more generic and compatible with the newer StarBurst zips.

Basic Installation Steps for Data2SD

  1. Install your ROM
  2. Install the A2SD Killer (specific for your ROM)
  3. Next step differs depending on whether you're reflashing your Rom on an existing install, or whether you are installing for the first time.
    • If you're installing the ROM for the first time:
      1. Reboot once after running the A2SD Killer
      2. Setup the timezone, language etc (But not your Google Account/Market)
      3. Reboot to recovery once again and install the Data2SD Installer
    • If you're reflashing the ROM (after having installed Data2SD once previously)
      1. Do not reboot after running the A2SD Killer
      2. Install the Data2SD Re-Installer right away
      3. Now reboot.
If you're interested in the StarBurst Data2SD versions (Sibere's beta and the latest updates, visit the StarBurst site.

Impressed? Of course it is so much easier to install Data2SD on StarBurst since it is integrated with Data2SD and most compatible with it. But of course, StarBurst is our Rom and I might as well be praising it too much! )

Reserved for FAQs

NOTE: As you read some of the posts in this thread, you may come across issues that I faced and description thereof..

Please Note: THESE ISSUES I FACED WERE HARDWARE BASED AND HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH DATA2SD AS SUCH.

Data2SD cant wreck your hardware.. The worst it can do is to make you do a Recovery wipe and reinstall a Rom..But don't we "Rooters" do that every other day?

Far too much work just to save a few MB on app data...I'll be leaving this well alone

you should have disclaimer in red saying don't do this if you're in any way unsure how to fix it should it go wrong

Well, I was so sick of Android telling me that I dont have enough free space. MTD partitions too seemed a bother. The rewards (huge internal memory) won me over..

I added a Caution message...

True..Had to add the busybox part, and the partition part..

Yes, I had to reduce the size..The shots actually increased the width of the forum window..

Sync off should just be a case of pushing edited script

No swap would mean to start again or at least re create the ext file

It's certainly daunting. 6 months ago I would have left this thread straight after joining it.

More complex than mtd layouts. Honestly wouldn't recommend for newbies

why do you have swap? desire has plenty of ram
also you should have more of a boost than that even without sync (from what ive read)

Not a big fan of MTD. Maybe it works well for deodexed ROMs but Stock Roms are usually huge..Not much can be taken from /system

I wonder too. Will take off Swap and Sync next time and see. Though this is going to be Class 2, I dont expect improvements.

By the way, Android Application manager has a definite lag.

try the test commands for sync just to see if it makes improvement to that!!!
personally i hate swap, it lags in most cases.
only reason i had it on my galaxy 1 is because it had low memory

OK,

this is EXACTLY what I did, nothing else. Although I already have e2fs on defrost.

Each line is a separate command, waiting for the prompt to return after each.

**obviousely there are certain assumptions about the location and name of your Busy box, ADB and data file.

Code:
cd\

cd\android-sdk-windows\tools

adb shell

mount /system

mount /data

mount /sdcard

exit

adb push c:\01data /system/etc/init.d/01data

adb push c:\busybox-armv6l /system/xbin/busybox

adb shell

chmod 755 /system/xbin/busybox

cd /

mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /sd-ext

dd if=/dev/zero of=/sd-ext/ext2 bs=1048576

chmod 777 /system/xbin/busybox

/system/xbin/busybox mke2fs -m 0 -F -L userdata /sd-ext/ext2

mkdir /sd

chmod 777 /system/xbin/busybox

/system/xbin/busybox mount -o loop /sd-ext/ext2 /sd

cd /data

cp -a * /sd

Yes looks like it. No idea what all that extra stuff is. This works for me though. No need to over complicate it if it works.

Hey..About the Big boost Sibere talks about. He says to remove sync from the script. Which script? How?

What I meant is, if I type just:

Quote:
busybox mount -o remount,noatime,nodiratime,nodev,nosuid /mnt/asec/ext/ext2 /data
without a sync, is that permanent? Or does the boost disappear when I reboot? How do I make it permanent? Add to an init script?

Open 01data as text file. Literally remove "sync," from script.

Should be able to do this locally if you now have s-off.

Ain't that the truth. But then 3 months ago I had an unrooted, Orange-branded Desire, and now I have a rooted, custom-ROMed, modded-radio, overclocked Desire. Maybe small successes have emboldened me, but I'm interested to learn more now.

Although I'll probably wait until I've saved up a bit more cash in case I do something I'll regret

Well this one doesn't involve flashign anything. Its just sending commands to files within the rom, so flashing a rom and formatting SD card is all thats needed to undo / recover.

Well in THAT case....

Although a Class 2 card is going to make the whole thing a bit pointless, eh?

Class 6 - Go for it
Class 4 - Remove "sync," from 01data then go for it
Class 2 - Wait until Christmas

Guys..Take a look..This is my Class 2 16Gb Kingston..



EDIT: I got a lot of force closes with the Kingston 16Gb..
I take back what I said..Class 2 does seem error prone.


And one more thing..
Data2SD is not more dangerous than rooting your Rom/S-OFF..In fact it is less dangerous than either, even though I pasted a sinister note of caution.

It's just like flashing a rom. And as Dan said, if something goes wrong, we can reverse by the same process we follow in case of corrupt Roms-Wipe data and Restore from Nandroid. Only in this case, we might need to format the partition which holds the ext.

On an aside..I had a bootloop when I tried to install on a card which already held some data in the 1st FAT32 partn. If you format both FAT32 to start with, it works superbly..

EDIT: It was working for some time, and then suddenly out of the blue, I got a lot of force closes on reboot.

The difference is that this Quadrant score is after I removed both Sync-On and Swap..

So in short, even a Class 2 card seems quite usable..It cant be just my card. I've stress-tested it and its actual speed is indeed around 2Mps or less.

i wouldnt say its even that dangerous
tbh its no more dangerous than a2sd+ its just that because its in its infancy you have to go the hard root to do it

EDIT for DAN:

hes getting 1828 and i think thats first pass and his cpu is not overclocked by the looks of things.

Thats "Vork kernel" for AOSP roms, clocked at 998Mhz.

Not the latest version, but the version before. Latest version is slower IMHO.

What are speed are you clocked at? Does it reboot when screen on or off?

Lags could be class 2. reboots, probably clock.

I just set it to performance mode with the max at 998 Mhz. It hung at calls, and rebooted when I tried to go to the home screen at the lag.
