Notes

  • Can only be done within TWRP Recovery either via built-in Terminal or over ADB
  • Ideal to do before a clean ROM flash, after an improper shutdown, and/or after configuring all apps/copying over all data

Quick-commands

  • This expects /data and /cache to be ext4
  • This expects /data to be encrypted
  • Boot TWRP, enter encryption password, and immediately run the following from a computer
adb shell "umount '/sdcard' && umount '/cache' && umount '/data' && e2fsck -y -f -v '/dev/block/mmcblk0p39' && e2fsck -y -f -v '/dev/block/mmcblk0p40' && e2fsck -y -f -v '/dev/block/mmcblk0p41' && e2fsck -y -f -v '/dev/block/dm-0' && mount '/system' && mount '/data' && mount '/cache' && mount '/vendor' && rm -Rf '/data/dalvik-cache' && fstrim -v '/system' && fstrim -v '/data' && fstrim -v '/cache' && fstrim -v '/vendor' && sync && umount '/system' && umount '/data' && umount '/cache' && umount '/vendor' && reboot"

Information

  • /dev/block/dm-0 is /data and /sdcard
  • /dev/block/mmcblk0p39 is /vendor
  • /dev/block/mmcblk0p40 is /cache
  • /dev/block/mmcblk0p41 is /system
  • All 5 partitions are ext4

Wipe Partitions

  • Do nothing else and immediately re-flash bootloader if it's wiped
fastboot erase bootloader
fastboot erase radio
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot erase boot
fastboot erase vendor
fastboot format vendor
fastboot -w

Unmount Partitions

umount '/sdcard'
umount '/data'
umount '/cache'
umount '/system'

ext4 Filesystem Maintenance

e2fsck -y -f -v '/dev/block/dm-0'
e2fsck -y -f -v '/dev/block/mmcblk0p39'
e2fsck -y -f -v '/dev/block/mmcblk0p40'
e2fsck -y -f -v '/dev/block/mmcblk0p41'

Mount Partitions

mount '/system'
mount '/data'
mount '/cache'
mount '/vendor'

Clear Dalvik/ART Cache

adb shell
mount '/data'
rm -Rf '/data/dalvik-cache'

fstrim

  • If done immediately after booting TWRP, /data and /cache are already mounted, but /system and /vendor aren't
adb shell
mount '/system' && mount '/vendor'
fstrim -v '/system' && fstrim -v '/data' && fstrim -v '/cache' && fstrim -v '/vendor' && sync

Quick-command

  • Run after booting into TWRP
adb shell "mount '/system' && mount '/vendor' && fstrim -v '/system' && fstrim -v '/data' && fstrim -v '/cache' && fstrim -v '/vendor' && sync"

Flash Base

  • Expects a factory image folder extracted to ~/Downloads starting with the name bullhead
  • Flashes bootloader and radio partitions
sudo fastboot flash 'bootloader' ~/'Downloads/bullhead-'*'/bootloader-bullhead-'*'.img' && sudo fastboot reboot-bootloader && sleep 5 && sudo fastboot flash 'radio' ~/'Downloads/bullhead-'*'/radio-bullhead-'*'.img' && sudo fastboot reboot-bootloader

Flash Other

  • Expects a factory image folder extracted to ~/Downloads starting with the name bullhead
  • Expects a image-bullhead zip archive in that factory image folder
  • Flashes boot and vendor partitions
unar -o  ~/'Downloads/bullhead-'* ~/'Downloads/bullhead-'*'/image-bullhead-'*'.zip' && sudo fastboot flash 'boot' ~/'Downloads/bullhead-'*'/image-bullhead-'*'/boot.img' && sudo fastboot flash 'vendor' ~/'Downloads/bullhead-'*'/image-bullhead-'*'/vendor.img' && sudo fastboot reboot-bootloader
