Adroid animation just keeps going.

Man I feel like a dunce. Usually I'm pretty good with hacking Linux boxes but this one has me stumped.

I just got my IQ this morning. Took me all of five minutes to put the Repack 20110118 on. After that it took me a while to find out how to get it so my Win7 machine would load the drivers so I could run ADB. Once I got that going I created a 3.4 Gig vfat partition and a 500 meg ext3 partition. I ran the steps to get a2sd going but on the reboot of the device it just kept reloading the the android animation.

Has anyone seen this happen. I read through as many threads that I can but couldn't find anything. Not even sure what I should search for.

Other then that its a great device. Really happy I picked it up.

1. were both partitions primary? They both need to be primary.

That's the only thing that I can think of.

Cheers

They are. Thanks for the tip.

Could it be possible that the SD card I'm using is to slow? Its an old 4 gig card. I will be picking up a 16 gig class 10 tomorrow.

if you think that it is your SD card, why don't you pop the cover off and partition the internal microSD card. that's the one that I use for a2sd.

Cheers

I'll give that a try. Just have to reboot in to linux to do it. I've already had the cover off a couple of times to reflash the device after it would hang during boot up after doing the a2sd.

So I opened the IQ up and partitioned the internal 2gig card to have 512 meg ext3 and a 1.5 gig fat32 partitions. Setup a2sd and it seems to be working. It now reports 384 megs of app space available.

Thanks for the tip.

Good to see it worked for you. I have a question though : how do you see the app space available ? Do you give an a2sd command in adb, and if so, which one, or is there a another to find this out directly on the IQ ?

I went to Settings/SD Card and Memory. The top part shows the external SD card that I have installed and at the bottom it shows Internal Memory. The internal memory used to show about 32 megs (after installing a few apps) and now it shows over 300 megs.

Now I just need to find out where in the OI File Manager is my internal Fat sdcard.

I use a free app "DiskUsage" to keep track of used/available space.
