    Tailor is an on-device live partition and filesystem editor for webOS.



    It should work on all webOS devices (phones and touchpads) running webOS 2.1.0 or later (it uses node.jsjsjs, $which$ $is$ $not$ $available$ $in$ $1$.$4$.$5$.$1$ $or$ $earlier$).



    Features include:

    • Unmount Partition
    • Check Filesystem
    • Repair Filesystem
    • Corrupt Filesystem
    • Resize Filesystem
    • Resize Partition
    • Mount Partition
    • Create Partition
    • Delete Partition

    It's available in the beta-apps feed. Make sure you are willing to comply with the obligations associated with the beta testing feeds before using the instructions at http://testing.preware.org/ to access those feeds.

    You should only participate in beta testing if you have good backups of the data on your device.

    I see "Tailah" in the future. More than willing to alpha test on this one.. Thats what backups are for.

    Is there a wiki yet for this?

    Rod:

    Would Tailor allow one to create and mount /media/ext3fs on device and thereby enable the potentiality for complete OTA install of Ubuntu chroot?
    This space for rent or lease. Inquire within.

    +1 for renaming it Tailah, for consistency :-)

    Seriously, Rod, you're the man. This is ballah (lulz).

    I'm game for messing up my 32 WiFi, I've already managed to break my ubuntu chroot, and can't figure out what to do with my cm7 install beyond go "looks there's androids on my touchpad!"

    as soon as I have some time I'll def be giving this a try... What sort of feedback are you looking for rod?
    Palm Centro -> Palm Pre- -> HTC Evo 3D SPRINT
    iPhone 3G -> HP Veer Black -> HP Veer White AT&T
    Palm Pre 2 -> HP Veer Black -> HP Pre 3 (UK - Unlocked 8gb) AT&T
    HP Pre 3 (US - AT&T 16gb)
    HP TouchPad Black 1.2GHz 32GB
    HP TouchPad White 1.5GHz 64GB
    HP TouchPad Black 1.5GHz 32GB AT&T

    (You have no idea what I would do to get a TouchPad Go)

    Obviously I have a problem (see above). . .
    And it has nothing to do with more cowbell. . .

    I'm really looking forward to the beta release. I've been thinking about creating something like this myself but I was doubtful about my coding skills and linux knowledge. Thanks a lot for doing this Rod, it makes a lot easier for me to have ubuntu much easier

    Wow, with this tool, it would be easier to return back to the original partitions, let's say you installed Ubuntu or Android on it.

    Am I right? (serious question)

    Eventually, yes. Just need the app to be in beta feeds I guess, since it needs some advanced functionality like partition resizing without loss and all

    Yes. That is in fact the driving use case.

    At the moment, places where the UI flow doesn't make sense, or the built-in limiting is allowing things that should not be allowed and could cause filesystem corruption.

    Yes. It won't work properly (since the emulator does not have partitions), but I have added some dummy data for the Emulator case so you can get a feel for it there. That's how I test most of the UI.

    I'm pretty happy to use the command line to manage my logical volumes, but the real value of this is for all those people that want to install debian or ubuntu without a lot of linux commands or messing around with meta-doctor. Not to mention all the ones that get a touchpad and the next day they are following some instructions on some blog and install ubuntu or android. Then on the following day, they want to delete the extra logical volumes and get the space back in their USB drive.

    I'm going to take a look later... time for some backups I think.

    Beware, versions 0.0.7 and above now contain potentially destructive operations. Your data is at grave risk if you use this tool.

    Repair Filesystem and real (not simulated) Resize Filesystem support has been added.

    Testing version 0.08... warning about jails active is good.

    Help -> Wiki Page
    This takes you to the Impostah wiki page (and this application needs good instructions more than most).

    Reboot like it told me and start again.

    One thing a little bit counter intuitive...
    I umount partitions (e.g. /opt, /media/internal, /media/ext3fs).
    Run the files system check on the USB and then select a slightly smaller size (18432 MiB down to 18200).
    Then select enter ... nothing happens.

    It takes me a little while to figure out that the "Resize Filesystem" selection bar is under the keboard. So I resize (should it tell me to reboot at this point?) and it tells me the USB is resized. Can't remember, but seem to recall it said 18192 MiB.

    Then I reboot and start Tailor again and it tells me my USB is back to 18432 MiB - check with 'lvscan' and my /dev/store/media seems to be back the same size as before.

    Did I do something wrong or was it just pretending?

    *** Edit: I see there is now v0.0.9 - will try that later if I get a chance.

    Thanks for testing.

    Found the incorrect help link - will be fixed in next version.

    Enter does nothing - you have to click the button.

    0.0.9 should reveal the button - I'm working around a bug in Mojo there when the keyboard pops up and covers the input area.

    No need to reboot after resizing.

    Note that resizing filesystems is different from resizing LVM partitions. The former is not shown by lvdisplay, and the latter is not implemented yet.

    Check the USB filesystem, and you should see the smaller filesystem size within the unchanged partition size.
