    as soon as i click unmount i get the active jail message then immediatly after i get the message....

    Service Error (unmountPartition)
    command failed: umount cant unmount /media/ext3fs: invalid argument

    do i have something missing? would a reinstall of tailor/anything else fix this?

    cheers.

    edit: looks like something OPT related interfering, removed some stuff and cleaned up the removal of cm9 properly with acmeuninstaller instead of manual removal and it seems fine now.

    Is there any way to get tailor now that the beta feeds are down? It really looks like a great app.

    I just refreshed the webosinternals beta feed and it worked for me. And Tailor is still there. Did not re-d/l the application as mine is working as intended.

    I'm not aware of any issues with the beta feed.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question or should go elsewhere, I was just assuming that the beta feed was the same as the "palm-beta" feed that now has only one entry stating "WebOS Internals has been formally notified by Richard Kerris (HP Vice President of Worldwide Developer Relations) that open access to the webOS app catalog feed (including the beta and web feeds) is no longer available to third party developers or applications..."

    I've read the rules on Testing Feeds - WebOS Internals and followed the steps, and understand that we aren't supposed to post feed URLs, but I am mainly only seeing feeds in preware that point to the "ipkg.preware" location and when I browsed through the apache open directory at the "/feed" directory there I could not find any other beta feeds. Maybe someone could PM me the URL of the beta feed that currently has Tailor?

    Thanks guys

    The Palm feed which closed has nothing to do with the WebOS Internals homebrew beta feed.

    Post a screenshot of your Manage Feeds page in Preware showing the results of following the steps at testing.preware.org ...

    I got the right feeds finally, I just had to reinstall preware - I feel stupid for skipping that step. There are now 4 additional "beta" feeds in my "manage feeds" page.

    Thanks!

    So, i was being retarted and accidently deleted the usb partition. My touchpad will boot into webos, but it is not recognized by my computer either in webos, or in the webos recovery, making it impossible for me to doctor it. Does anybody know a way to fix this and rebuild the usb partition, or just a way to make it talk to the computer so i can do a full wipe?
  9. #129  
    I would think that doctoring would rebuild the usb partion if it doesn't exist - although I've never tried it. Since using a meta-doctor will allow changing the default size of the /var and /ext3fs partions, it just seems logical that the doctor checks the proper size of the partions.

    Good Luck!

    Hi guys

    I was trying to resize my USB partition after a recent "The application database is almost full" error. So I do not want to deal with that again....

    However I am getting the following error "Command failed: mount: can't find /media/ext3fs in etc/fstab" when I am trying to mount the ext3 partition I just created.

    Here are the steps I followed...

    Start Tailor v0.3.0
    Select Partition -> USB (media) selected
    Unmount Partition
    Check Filesystem
    Resize USB (media) Partition -> 5000MiB
    Check Filesystem
    Select Activity -> Mount Partition
    Select Partition -> Unused Space
    Create Partition -> User (ext3) -> 600 MiB
    Create Partition
    Select Activity -> Mount Partition -> error

    Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

    Thanks
    Vas

    check the 3 msin ubuntuchroot threads, they deal with the same issue, a line of text just needs added so tailor can mount it.

    Many thanks...I guess you need to add the partition on a config and then Tailor will find it...
    Makes sense

    Many thanks

    edit /etc/fstab

    add in this line on the very end

    /dev/mapper/store-ext3fs /media/ext3fs ext3 noatime,data=writeback 0 0

    no reboot required, after saving the fstab, go back to tailor and your mount attempt should now work.

    Could you point me to the original Master Boot Record (with an intact partition table) that I presume
    /dev/mapper/store-media had at some point? I'm trying to undelete a 'USB drive' directory, and the
    missing partition info is a problem.

    Thanks,

    Read through this thread as still a bit perplexed as how to re-allocate room to the Android System partition.

    I've installed Tailor, unmounted the USB (media) partition, Checked the File System, then resized it down 104 MiB to 12844. How do I add this to the Android System partition?

    The "Select Partition" at the top only shows the USB (media) section, and the Unused Space of 104 MiB. I can tap the Unused Space at the top, then change the activity to "Create Partition", but what do I do to get this free space to the Android System area? Create Partition lists the four areas:

    User (ext3)
    Android (system)
    Android (cache)
    Android (data)

    One stumped inexperienced user... I'm trying to up the room for a 4.x.x upgrade to possibly KitKat, and hit this roadblock. Most threads suggest upping to 512 or 600.

    Help is much obliged!

    just as you resized one partition down, you just follow the same procedure with the android partition(s) but give them a larger size instead.

    Will removing apps on WEBOS side free up memory on CM9 side?
    ^ old link to an old thread, i link a picture which shows a larger than usual android partition setup, i think my values are larger than the typical default unless things have changed since then.

    but all i did was shrink my webOS partition, then upscale the android side, just by doing the same reallocate space method.

    Hopefully someone will see this ASAP. My girlfriend is going to Greece tomorrow and I was trying to update our touchpad to 4.4. Using Tailor to update the partition sizes is not working. The "check filesystem" step isn't doing anything. I click it and it sits there forever. This is on a 16gb touchpad. After 20min I rebooted and tried it again and it's been going for close to an hour now and still working.

    Any ideas or an easy fix for this? Maybe I missed something?

    Not sure if this is the correct Tailor thread, but as a side question, does anyone know if is there anything like Tailor on Android or if it can be ported over? Tailor has been a tremendous help the times I've used it on my Touchpads and I'd love to have a similar tool for using elsewhere as well. I think it would see a lot of interest on Android, free or paid.

    Yes there is a piece of software for the touchpad in the xda forums. It is called TouchPad Toolbox.
    Be careful with it. Follow the prompts so that it doesn't wipe webos or make the partition so small that you can't keep webos on it and install lune os as well. In fact if you install lune os before you use the software , then the software will consider that part of webOS and will at minimum keep that size.

    Thanks for the reply, bluenote. I think I need to clarify my question a bit though.

    Is there an app for Android similar to Tailor that can be used to manage partitions in Android on other non-Touchpad Android devices, in the same way Tailor does in webOS on Touchpads?
