    Considering adb is still broken in the Centura recovery you wouldn't have much luck. There may still be another way of doing it tho. Of course you would need to adjust the correct partitions instead of the ones listed tho. Anyone want to donate a phone to try it on?

    will this work with the lgl34c?

    No you will brick your phone
    Why would this be the case? As long as the repartitioning process is not done incorrectly, I can't understand how that would affect the functioning of Android. Or do you just mean the prerequisite specific rooting procedure as referred to at the beginning of this procedure would not work?



    Try it and see.......
    Not likely since I do not have this phone.

    Presumably if you understand FDISK you do not need to follow these instructions blindly, no?

    I'm a newbie. Still trying to grasp all this. Can one of you guys that knows this stuff like the back of your hand pm me? I don't wanna waste anyone's time more than necessary to ask a few questions about rooting my phone and getting more "System Memory" as well as possibly adding more processing power(if possible.)

    one thing im still a little confused on is how this effect the phone. apart from getting more install space. for example, right after i factory reset and flashed the rom and checked the mem usage, the internal usage was higher than 160mb, it was like 500mb or so, so if that is the case , wouldnt the making of the internal to 160 have a negative impact, or how would it work? i guess im just trying to make sure it doesnt negativly impact it at all. hope for a fast reply and hope you understand what im getting at. lol thanks in advance

    I can't thank you enough for this guide. I followed it like 6 months ago and it worked like a charm. Thanks a lot mate, no more low space for me. This forum is the only place if you want something for this specific model.
    Cheers.

    Thanks for this!  This little hack makes a rooted $20 piece of junk into a pretty neat gadget.  I had to `adb reboot recovery` after fdisk opps as it complained about syncing disks and they wouldn't show in the partition table which seemed pretty normal to me for a Linux box but was/is not mentioned in the guide.  This would go nicely as a .bat/sh script combined with the one click root possibly with options to do what vampirefo does partitioning and mounting the sd as well/instead.  Anyway, thanks again.  I might have gotten around to puzzling it out myself but this was a very quick path to AWESOME!

    Edit:
    I got some more phones so in addition to making the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login Linux friendly I wrote an You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login that repartitions the phone exactly as in the OP.  I go about it a little different and had to work around some stuff but the end result is the same.  You could combine the scripts without much effort and if there is a smart windows user out there feel free to write a .bat for it.  It's all pretty simple except for the 'adb wait-for-device' hack which doesn't work when you 'adb reboot recovery' into cwm.

    Hi Folks.
    I picked up a spare LGL38c in case mine got busted - and now I need to put it into service...

    The 1st one had things just as shown in the directions:

     179       20    1048576 mmcblk0p20
     179       21     163840 mmcblk0p21
     179       22      16384 mmcblk0p22
     179       23       4096 mmcblk0p23

    But this 2nd one does not - it looks like this:

     179       20     170000 mmcblk0p20
     179       21    1042384 mmcblk0p21
     179       22      16384 mmcblk0p22
     179       23       4096 mmcblk0p23
     179       32    1927168 mmcblk1
     179       33     926757 mmcblk1p1
     179       34    1000410 mmcblk1p2

    Please help me to re-partition this one to get more space, if possible ??

    Thanks for any help !!

    I recalculated the START and END cylinders so I could keep 512MB for the internal SD partition

    Sent from my LG-L38C using Tapatalk 2

    Does anyone know, if 156017 in mmcblk0p21 (2 spaces up from bottom) is possible typo and should be 150017 or possibly150016 in mmcblkop20 (3 spaces from bottom) should be 156016?
    As I have no knowledge about calculating cylinders any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks a lot

    Nice catch skinnypops, don't know how I botched that, A.D.D. strikes again.
    Looking at the numbers again, the partitions should be configured as follows:
    Quote
    /dev/block/mmcblk0p20
    84481      150016
    /dev/block/mmcblk0p21
    150017      236033
    /dev/block/mmcblk0p22
    236034      238080
    /dev/block/mmcblk0p23
    238081      238592
    Hope that helps.

    I'd sure like to have 1GB for apps :)

    rjgee's primary post on this thread and the fallowing posts, sure reads out with grate promise.

    But in primary post step 1 "Root the phone and install CWM" has me stumped.

    I tried rooting my LGL38c using a zip file called oneckicklgl38c.zip  This rooting tool would do nothing until I updated my drivers.  But then once the rooting tool finished, my phone wouldn't shut off, would boot over and over going to a, all white screen, for a minute (no controls), before rebooting again.  In order to fix this I had to remove the battery, then roll back the phone to factory default by using the 3 button (First(down volume and front "Home" button) + Second(On/Off) Holding all 3 a minute).

    So how do I get a good root going on and where can I find the CWM?

    rerun it, sometimes takes 2 or 3 tries. CWM is included in one click.
    read forums under one click root (18 pages).
    ask your questions about root in that section and they will be answered.
    sorry, i don't have expertise to help you.

    I bet you guys could cut out a bit of cache in order to bump the data size some more. The device never gets OTAs anyways :P.

    Even 600MiB is more than enough for this phone, only used 300MiB and it took over 3 minutes to boot plus slow response time seemed like it froze. Not worth the effort if you ask me.

    This was tricky for me as I had zero experience cwm, adb, sd cards, etc. My advice to novices is pay attention to the bolded text (they are adb commands) and some of the follow up posts that provide more context and detail. Control C is a good trick to learn in adb. Learning cwm mount usb storage was critical for me as I got caught in a reboot loop (could only see LG logo) after my first attempt. Don't give up and you'll persevere (and learn a whole lot in the process).

    How do you get unstuck from the reboot loop?
    EDIT: Nevermind. Found a forum which *reminded me* that I have to hold down power, home and volume down until it flashes to get back into System Menu. From there I repeated the steps which went wonky and now I am restored with the proper partition sizes. Thanks for doing this. I am tickled pink!

    There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,

    As you can see, I am stuck at this point. I do step 6, i do as instructed to adb reboot recovery. I even tried to restore from the save i made as the instructions provided before step 1, this threw an error that went by too fast to read..

    What am I doing incorrectly? How can I fix this? Phone is stuck in bootloop. I can boot into CWM, but that is it. Any attempt to utilize adb after this point get ~ # instead of just #...

    edit: Well, reset to factory defaults, then restored a previous save to regain the proper stock partitions until i can get a reply.

      Android is King
    You need to install sdk/adb via terminal (linux OS) or on windows. Then try the steps again.

    Make sure you dl its proper usb driver as well via there official website.

    Before connecting into your pc usb port and device, make sure you have usb debugging enable in your device first.

    ** for android its reboot recovery without the adb...

    adb is if your doing it on your computer via terminal and have sdk/adb install in your linux distro.

    You can do it on windows but youll need sdk/adb for windows etc.

    Did you get the repartition working yet?

    I could not get it to repartition. Tried several times.

    Tried to recover from CWM this last time and now I get a E:format_volume: make_extf4fs failed on /dev/block/mmcblk0p21
    Error while formatting /data!

    I have no luck at all with this phone. Can this be fixed?

    Edit: Got this bad boy back to a stock rom. I may try again in the future. I believe the error for me lay somewhere in ADB and not the phone or the instructions in this guide. Again, Thanks for your help. :)
