eMMC partitions

Postby andykirby » Tue Mar 17, 2015 11:04 am

On the MK80LE the eMMC flash is partitioned as shown in the image.

The root filesystem does not fill the entire flash.

You can access the remaining storage by formatting partition 1 (mmcblk0p1)

The easy way to do this is by installing gnome-disk-utility from a terminal:

sudo apt-get install gnome-disk-utility

Then run it:

gnome-disks

Then click on the last partition (the unknown one with the most space) and click on the icon with the two cogs below.

Select format from the menu

Select 'don't erase' and 'ext4 filesystem', enter a name for the partiton and hit format.

Once it's done, reboot the system and the new partition will be mounted.

I did the procedure.

There is a way to concatenate/merge the 2 partitions ??
In my case (PLUS version) the big partition is 26 GB... Why having all these partitions and not just one (5+26)GB for the user ?

There should be a way to join the partitions. This is allwinners wise idea I'm not quite sure why they created it this way.
