Default Darktremor A2SD for Prevail [Updated 5-7-12]

Thanks to hroark13, murderousone, interdpth, tkirton, elgubbo, shabbypenguin, and everyone who has helped to get a little more than expected.




This is a modified version 2.7.5.2-1 of Darktremor A2SD. The zip in this post is the only one that works with stock-based Prevail Roms. This will not work with data-to-ext kernels.


Required:
- A root enabled ROM
- ClockworkMod Recovery ( Do NOT use ROM Manager!!)
- dta2sd_prevail.zip

Recommended:
- A complete backup of your sd card contents.


Install With CWM
1. Back up your entire sd card contents to a folder on your computer.
2. Place downloaded dta2sd_prevail.zip on SD card
3. Turn off phone
4. Boot into recovery (hold vol up + power)

NOW'S A GOOD TIME TO MAKE ANOTHER BACKUP. OK, Let's Continue.

4. Select - Mounts and Storage > mount /system and /data. When done, press power button to return to main menu.
5. Select - Install zip from sdcard > Choose zip from sdcard > dta2sd_prevail.zip. Confirm. Wait. Return to main menu.
6. Select - Advanced > Partiton sd card > ext size (any) > swap size (any). Wait. This may take some time. When finished, return to main menu.
7. Select - Reboot system now

First boot may take a few minutes while apps are moved.
To see if it worked check the a2sdGUI now in your app drawer
or open a terminal or adb shell with root privileges and type
Code:
a2sd check
You should get a status dialogue.


What does this do for my phone?
Quote:
This is Darktremor Apps2SD, a multipurpose program that primarily allows a user to execute applications created for the Android OS on their Secure Digital card (with the proper setup...more on that later). But, Darktremor Apps2SD is all about stability. The goal is to be able for all users of the Android OS to be able to take advantage of a method to run their applications from a secure digital card.

But just because the Darktremor Apps2SD is all about stability, doesn't mean it isn't packed with features:

- Move applications (both free and paid) to the Secure Digital card.
- Move Dalvik Cache to run either from your Secure Digital card or from your cache partition and clears the cache on demand.
- Boot Loop Protection: prevents the phone from boot looping in the event the SD card could not be mounted.
- Dalvik JIT for faster performance on Roms which support it.
- User selectable sizes for the Dalvik heap sizes, allowing a user to freely optimize their system.
- Activate a swap partition on your SD card and sets how often the swap partition is utilized.
- Automatically fixes configuration issues.
- Users can check the free space on their SD card and check the installation to make sure all is setup correctly.
- Runs ZipAlign on demand...this makes your programs load faster.
- Built in help system for easy reference of commands.
- All features can also be reversed without repartitioning your Secure Digital card.
- New logging features assists in troubleshooting issues.
- Commands to set the Low Memory Killer feature at boot time. Great for those people who are the "set it and forget it" type.
- And more...
All modifications should be made with the knowledge that you can possibly harm your device. I cannot be held responsible for any errors be they hardware, software, or user.

Download DarkTremor A2SD for Prevail here

Commands to use with terminal emulator or adb

All commands start with a2sd

ex: #a2sd reinstall
or: C:\adb>adb shell a2sd reinstall

would reset the symlinks and make sure your folders are moved to sd card

If I am not mistaken the version put together by murderousone in his M1 mod with hroarks help works with shabbys and hroarks kernel as well as rooted stock. If this is something different than what they did you may be able to get answers to getting different kernels to work from them

it is very much worth doing hate in my opinion . The a2sd mods use an sd-ext partition basically as an extention of internal memory , apps install fully to the sd ,and install there automatically .. where as link2sd moves files to sd but links them to files still on internal ( i think i got that right) ..

link2sd makes a link for each apk, each link takes up some room

a2sd makes only one link for the whole app folder, saving the maximum amount of space

Just when you install it. We can't get the installer to mount properly but it works fine once installed.

yea i tested it with shabbyrc1 kernel with just installing a2sd but i had the same problems. rc1 it breaks it..

forgot 2 update the post since been flooded @ work... sorry bout that...

i didnt really notice it @ 1st since i was flashing all the mods to test em out, but once i rebooted the phone, it started taking internal memory more than usual.... so def wasnt working like normal on shabbyrc1 due to mount...

but the hoark kernel is working fine with it & is what im actually using now...

I have mines a lil different though. I put cache on SD-EXT. cache on ext4 with hoarks CWM ext4 file.. system is like normal & my sd is fat32/ext2 for the a2sd...

on my rom i added 2 scripts. a kernel script & overclocking script. posted in other thread of a2sd... can be added 2 init.d manually. flashing whole rom not needed. so not sure if maybe thats helping or not, in regards to who posted about my rom changes to shabby or what i added...

working on a 3rd for the mounting of the cache download file. its posted in the other thread for a2sd also.. but not fully tested..

Really dont think the changing of the S will do it though inigomontoyasr... if u remove the S it actually disables the script. The S calls for the system to read the script... 00-99 numbers are the sequence in which each init.d script will load up in order.

probably just need 2 change the script up, so it can mount it on boot on shabbyrc1.....

Also keep in mind:

maybe something was removed out the shabbyrc1 kernel, that is needed for a2sd script..

i know hoark & shabby compiled 2 separate kernels which are different. also shabby's kernel removes some stuff that i believe hoark may have left in place on his kernel... dont really remember what, have to check the threads here or both kernels 2 c what was removed & if needed by a2sd...

not every time you boot, just for install, after its installed the kernel will mount everything.

I was running shabbykernel and went into cwm and mounted system and data
flashed it and rebooted my supercharger script had lost its S
and yours adds a S99 so I was not surprised.
I opened the a2sd gui and was getting problems moving davlik cache also had problem with apps it says could not move.
I renamed the supercharger script
S09 and then odined the new cwm and hroark kernal rebooted and moved the davlik cache no problem apps still dont do anything but my data shows 150mbs free so I know they moved.

ALSO Have You Guys Tried Using Any Of The A2SD Commands Thru Terminal...



Some Of These Commands Are Basically What The Gui Does For Us Auto... But Has Commands That Arent On The Gui To Check a2sd...



This is the Darktremor Apps2SD Command Line Help guide. This is the same guide you will see if you type a2sd help in Darktremor Apps2Sd 2.7.5.3 But works with all versions:

The syntax to run any of this commands is the following:

a2sd <command></command>

...where <command> is one of the following:</command>

Standard Apps2SD Commands:
  • reinstall
Moves free and paid apps to the ext2/ext3/ext4
partition on your secure digital card. Removes
the No A2SD flag file.

This is used if you have already executed an
a2sd remove command. Otherwise, this part is
automatically performed when Apps2SD is
started.

  • install
Same as reinstall. This was brought back for
users of version 2.7.

  • remove
Moves free and paid apps to the internal phone
storage. Creates the No A2SD flag file.


Swap Partition Commands:
  • reswap
Removes the No Swap flag. Allows A2SD to
activate the swap partition.

This is used if you have already executed an
a2sd noswap command. Otherwise, this part is
automatically performed when Apps2SD is
started.

  • noswap
Creates the No Swap flag. Prevents A2SD from
activating the swap partition.

  • swappyxx
Sets swap partition swappiness value to xx.

a rebuild on reboot.

  • cachepart

Partition flag.

  • cachepartreset
Performs the same function as cachepart, plus
erases the contents of Dalvik-Cache, forcing

  • nocache
Moves Dalvik cache files to the internal phone

  • nocachereset
Performs the same function as nocache, plus
erases the contents of Dalvik-Cache, forcing
a rebuild on reboot.

Prevents ZipAlign from executing during the
boot process. Removes the ZipAlign flag file.


Dalvik Setting Commands:

if you guys start playing with the kernel ramdisk packer I put out, you will be able to compare the differences between RC1 and my kernel, and make your own changed

all the differences are in the ramdisk the zimage is the same for both kernels

yea what i was looking @ was really this part of the commands..

Not sure if this gets done by the gui...

Program Data Commands:
  • datasd
Moves /data/data to the SD card.

  • nodata
Restores /data/data to the internal storage.

I dont see those in the gui however when I try to run a2sd datasd I get bad command

Though I think they must be moved the free space in data partition is 148 out of 160 total I would have to think data/data takes up more then 12mb

nah its actually moving it to the rom & binding it to another folder on ext2. basically like -ls linking it 2 the ext2 partition. like how busy box gets linked to the rom folder.. if u check your system/sd that will be basically b where everything gets moved from a2sd but gets linked to the ext2 to run ..... ..

I just noticed something
if anyone runs root explorer they know at the top it shows the /data/app
and it shows how much space is used vs how much is free.

well in /data it shows
12.48mb used and 148.7
but in /data/app it shows
73.53 used and 167.11 free
giving a total of 240.64
and because I dont have as much room as I would like I made my ext partition 240mbs so it is actually showing me the sd partition.

after further experimentation I see the /data/data is not moved, I am going through the settings on apps and my /data space is shrinking, which should not be happening if /data/data was on sd.

now just a food for thought.. is this possible...???

what if we were 2 set the EXT2 partition up like how its set up for the a2sd but only like how hoark got his ext4, to run the rom, but instead, it would actually run the shabbyrom thru sd-ext2 like a2sd is using the ext2 partition & getting the sd space for the rom..

again is this possible???

on further thoughts I am not sure we want that, internal memory will run much faster then even the class 10 sd cards and if we managed to get the phone to basicly run from sd it would run slower.

yes, I open /system/sd and without opening any folders there I get the exact same numbers, 73.53 used and 167.11 free

I am however seeing app dalvik-cache though.

yea mines either but i do have a data2, but i think titanium created that folder when i clicked move app data to sd on TB:

system/sd
app
app-private
dalvik-cache
data2
lost+found

sounds likely, as if it was moved by a2sd it would just be data
I have all those but data2

that instruction is for 2.7.5.3, this is made from version 2.7.5.2-1
the /data/data/ function is not yet available in this version

you should not run system apps from the sd

/data/app and /data/app-private get linked and moved to the sd-ext partition which is mounted as (named) /system/sd

/data/data stays on internal to protect personal data.
/data/dalvik-cache can be moved for further free space although i had stability issues with this
i did move dalvik to /cache using
a2sd cachepart
and that seems ok until i add many apps guess dalvik gets too big for that partition

yea the data2 gets created with titanium backup pro option... also if u delete a app from data/app it will also deleted on system/sd... so they are the same folder... just a duplicate so def we are lacking the data linking to the ext2... i noticed that before but just thought internal would go down anyway.. so i guess we got some more testing 2 do..

when he typed system/sd
he was not talking about system apps,
not sure if you thought that.
he was talking about the actual folder

/system/sd
and inside is
/system/sd/app
/system/sd/app-private

etc. I am running with dalvik-cache on sd and it seems ok, but I am using a class 10 card so its pretty quick all things considered.

-inigo
I think I can make a CWM that formats the sd-ext to ext2

But I want to hear some good reasons why we should not be using ext4

I would like to hear from the dev, and people who tested it

If we drop ext4 totaly, then there is no need for my kernel, and I have to compile a new CWM

Did ShabbyRC1 init.d require the S## ?
his init.d either requires something i'm not aware of or it's broken. i tried scripts named 'script', ##'script', S##'script' and K##'script' and none ran at boot. i had to use the install-recovery.sh to invoke the mount script. i'm trying to make a universal version so install-recovery.sh uses
Code:
sh /system/etc/init.d/S00mount
that was the simplest method i could think of.

I now have a single version that will mount itself in cwm, install on stock, shabby, and hroark with the sdext as ext2 or ext4 and if any variable is changed, and causes a bootloop, a simple cwm reinstall or
Code:
adb shell a2sd reinstall
while bootlooping will fix the mount.
i'll test more and release when it's ready.

as for ext4. when using your all ext4 rom the a2sdgui doesn't report correctly (all rfs variations did in my testing). and the ext4 rom also uses more space on all partitions. even when migrating a nandroid from rfs the partitions are more full. it boots faster, and apps load faster, but there seems to be a storage trade-off. i still use teh all ext4. i keep my phone off at work and turn it on at lunch and when i leave so i like the speedy boot.


one other thing, this a2sd allows for toggling the app storage between internal and sd. i reckon that's to safely swap sd cards. it works on stock and shabby in fact you have to toggle apps to sd when you first install on those. but everything is locked to sd on hroarkernel. can't be moved back. haven't investigated that further. i think some more testing is needed to make a decision so if anyone has input here, it would be appreciated.


there was more on my mind than i realized. i need a nap.

did you try the method that involves flashing standard theme and then no-ciq theme? seems most have reported that to work although i don't think it's been tried with this mod yet.

looks like you're boned.






just kidding. but we do need lots of information.
does the phone start or bootloop?
can you connect with adb?
did you uninstall link2sd first? i suppose in theory you could use both but let's get you fixed up first.
step by step, what did you do? meaning from right before this happened until right now. how about now?

step by step, what did you do? meaning from right before this happened until right now. how about now?
first i did wipe then used oden to update to latest cvw..i was using Link2d but i think i made a mistake when i loaded the links2sd well i know i did because i didnt reformat my sd (16gb)and the ap2sd would not read it it did however show in my titanium however.. so the next thing i did was download my sd card to my laptop then i went to recovery and wiped my partition and created a new on 5132 and 32swap.. then i did a system mount and data mount..rebooted open up titanium back up and it showed the drive however the numbers look strange system rom ..168mb(32.5free) internal 169mb(119 free) sd card 15.4 (15.3 free) sd crd (a2sd) 503mb(492MB)....now when i first booted it was giving me loops but i went back into recovery did a wipe and phone went to normal.. then i redid the steps as far as mounting and unloading of zip a2sd_prevail_ext4.zip. after that i didnt see the app itself as i had seen previously so i went in my emulator app and ran the check command..and that brings me to "boned" and i dont know about adb never attempted it i dont think..

From Your Log:

Looks Like Your Having Permission Problems From What Your Log Says....
Files Are Not Even Getting Pushed Correctly... Try Re-Installing The A2SD Without Link2sd. Also Link2Sd Creates Similar Simlinks As A2SD... So It Can Cause Probs If Both Are There..
