Earned another 1.9G from GLO

Today I took the internal sd out from GLO, found it is Sandisk, class4, the capacity is 4G.



As I knew, GLO's space shoud be 2G, so I watched it's partition via LinuxReader, found 1.9g is unused. Then I tried to expand the reader partition to cover this freespace and got sucess.
Now when I link my GLO to PC, I have about 3G space to put book.



I think maybe sometime 2GB microsds were cosumed up in KOBO‘s warehouse, so they put a 4GB microsd.

Could I simply exchange the internal 2g with an 8g?

Yes, if you clone the partition and then expand it. Look in the Developers forum.

Hi everybody,
I did a fdisk -l (in run.sh) on my glo and found that sd is also 4g. But I not enable to connect with telnet on it and linuxReader don't detect unused space. Does anyone have an idea on how I can get back this space ?
Does busybox have a command to extend partition ?
Which version of linux reader do you use ? (mine is Disk internal 1.6.4.0).
Thank by advance for your helps.

Nic.

I just opened the backcover of GLO, took the internal micro sdcard out,
put the micro sd card in a card reader, connected the card reader to the PC, then you could do every thing on the microsd as your will.


And, I found class 10 micro sd will not contribute to the perfomance.

Thank's xuyn2003,
this what I miss, remove the back cover. Actually I was searching for a way without to do that. But it looks like it is not possible. I tried Gpart and other partition tools, but they still not see the real size of the SD.

What is the best/safest way to back up a bit-for-bit copy of an SD card in either Linux or OSX that I can restore if anything goes bad

A simple ">dd if=/dev/sdd of=sdbackup.img" or similar would do the trick.

When I tried this, as...

Code:
dd if=/Volumes/KOBOeReader of=/Users/stewacide/Desktop/kobo.img
...the resultant image is only 16kb! This is with the internal SD card plugged into the system using OSX. What am I missing?

edit -- nevermind that seems to be just one of a couple partitions on the card. Needed to dd /dev/disk1.

p.s. What is on the first two partitions? I assume one is the firmware and the other the backup firmware in case of a hard reset? Can't seem to mount the partitions under OSX.

edit2 -- booted into Linux. Indeed what I thought. Will have a poke around...

Tried to get the back off mine but to no avail. Fingernails won't go in anywhere. Anyone know how to do this safely without using something sharp like a knife or flexing it too much and risking damaging the screen?

Will opening the back it void the warrant? Mine is only 2 months old.
Apart form taking advantage of any additional storage the SD card may have, I would like to back up the partition in case it ever gets bricked in the future.

PS. Thanks for confirming that a class 10 card does not add anything to the performance.

Anyone know whether it can take UHS-I cards?

I find that thinish guitar picks work well.

I haven't seen anything that says so. But then, I haven't really looked.

I opened my touch, and found it had a microSD card, BUT the black plastic socket seen in the picture above, is inside a silver cage and I cannot get the card to slide out. It moves about 0.5 mm, but won't slide right out.
