22:58 PhoenixMage Hi guys, I have the 16Gb motoactv but only 6.7Gb for Music, wtf happened to the rest of the space?
22:58 PhoenixMage There is no way the OS takes up that much
22:59 dproldan did you install something from the 8GB version?
22:59 dproldan boot.img or something like that?
22:59 PhoenixMage No this is clean
22:59 PhoenixMage I havent rooted it yet
23:00 dproldan so,  you see those 6.7 GB in windows or whatever you connect it to, right?
23:00 PhoenixMage the actual size of the drive is only about 8gb
23:00 PhoenixMage yeah
23:01 PhoenixMage Surely Motorola havent screwed the partitioning that badly?
23:01 dproldan is the 16GB marked on the back?  :-)
23:01 PhoenixMage Actually it is only a 6.7Gb drive
23:01 PhoenixMage yep
23:01 dproldan only way to debug would be to root it
23:02 PhoenixMage I am happy to do that
23:02 PhoenixMage Tell me, are the displays just widgets on a launcher screen?
23:02 dproldan no,  it's an overlay
23:03 dproldan there's only one work_screen, actually
23:03 dproldan the swyping icons is an overlay on top of it
23:04 PhoenixMage hmm ok
23:05 PhoenixMage So what shall I do to debug after I root it?
23:05 dproldan http://motoactvforum.com/phpb​b/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=22
23:05 dproldan you can access the sdcard partition with ADB and see what's there
23:05 dproldan you can issue a "df" command
23:06 christefano joined #motoactv
23:06 dproldan you can issue a "cat /proc/partitions" command
23:07 dproldan this is from a 8GB  :   179       54    7029632 mmcblk1p22emstorage
23:07 dproldan partittion 22 should be double the size on your device
23:07 dproldan you can dmesg and see the flash size
23:08 PhoenixMage lCan I root 1.6.12 the rooting tool only says 1.6.0 not 1.6.x
23:10 dproldan I think ClearD made a 1.6.12 update zip
23:11 dproldan you can extract it and use that boot.img
23:11 dproldan I haven't used the rootTool
23:11 dproldan do you have the golf application?
23:12 PhoenixMage I didnt order the golf edition
23:12 PhoenixMage Not sure
23:12 PhoenixMage I have some golf options on it though
23:14 dproldan download the new version
23:14 dproldan http://motoactv.wikispaces.com/
23:14 dproldan it says you have to choose 2 for 1.4.12
23:14 dproldan 1.6.12
23:14 dproldan Flash the new modified boot image. In the menu, you will be asked for your current version. Choose your version:
23:14 dproldan [1] for 4.55.78/4.55.97
23:14 dproldan or [2] for 5.6.0/1.6.0/1.6.6/1.6.7/1.6.13
23:19 PhoenixMage Thats the version I have but it doesnt say for 5.6.0/1.6.0/1.6.6/1.6.7/1.6.13 just 5.6.0 and 1.6.0 I'll just try it anyway
23:25 PhoenixMage ok its rooted
23:26 dproldan good
23:26 dproldan you have adb installed?
23:26 PhoenixMage yep
23:27 PhoenixMage the version from the google sdk
23:27 dproldan ok
23:27 PhoenixMage running adb shell
23:27 dproldan run a cat /proc/partitions
23:27 dproldan look for emstorage
23:28 PhoenixMage yep p22
23:28 dproldan the size?
23:28 PhoenixMage 14824320 blocks
23:28 dproldan my 8GB is 7029632
23:28 dproldan type df
23:29 PhoenixMage 6G to /mnt/sdcard
23:29 PhoenixMage 6G to /mnt/secure/asec
23:29 PhoenixMage wtf is that
23:29 dproldan that's wrong
23:29 PhoenixMage ?
23:29 dproldan my 8GB:
23:29 PhoenixMage There is nothing in /mnt/secure/asec
23:30 dproldan mnt/sdcard              6G     4G     2G   32768
23:30 dproldan don't worry about asec
23:30 PhoenixMage http://pastebin.com/j2gp9Msd
23:31 PhoenixMage Its the only other thing chewing space
23:31 dproldan type "mount"
23:34 PhoenixMage http://pastebin.com/Cx5tU14g
23:39 dproldan carefully:  fdisk /dev/block/mmcblk1    then p   to print the partitions
23:40 dproldan does it also list 14GB for p22?
23:40 dproldan "q" to get out of fdisk
23:40 PhoenixMage yeah
23:41 PhoenixMage Yeah no worries, its just painful without autocomplete :p
23:41 PhoenixMage But Linux is my bread and butter
23:41 PhoenixMage http://pastebin.com/LLhQp9YL
23:44 dproldan ok, good
23:45 dproldan let's try to do this from recovery?
23:45 dproldan go to this page http://wiki.opticaldelusion.org/wiki/Motoactv
23:45 dproldan look for the recovery section
23:48 PhoenixMage yeah, no worries, does the fastboot command sit along side adb?
23:48 PhoenixMage found it
23:48 dproldan I think so, yes
23:48 PhoenixMage I am assuming it has to be booted to fast boot mode first?
23:48 dproldan yep
23:49 dproldan turn off,  then hol start+power
23:49 dproldan hold
23:50 dproldan once rebooted
23:50 dproldan go to an ADB shell again
23:50 PhoenixMage rebooting now
23:51 dproldan this shell has autocomplete,  BTW
23:52 PhoenixMage ok back in adb shell
23:52 PhoenixMage it does? tab just tabs fo rme
23:52 dproldan is the MOTOACTV in recovery?
23:53 PhoenixMage yep
23:53 PhoenixMage busybox 1.14.4
23:53 PhoenixMage is the shell
23:55 dproldan I think there's a link in /dev to emstorage
23:55 dproldan mount /dev/emstorage /sdcard
23:55 dproldan and df again
23:56 PhoenixMage god damn escape codes screw up my ls
23:56 PhoenixMage pwd
23:56 PhoenixMage wrong window :p
23:56 PhoenixMage No link
23:56 dproldan sorry  it in dev/block
23:57 dproldan mount /dev/block/emstorage /sdcard
23:57 PhoenixMage done
23:57 dproldan df
23:58 PhoenixMage 7027872 blocks
23:58 dproldan sheesh
23:59 PhoenixMage So it looks like motorola have partitioned it really badly
23:59 dproldan yep
