Hi malcolmlewis, I apologise for the very late reply, I have looked at the sites you have supplied and found them useful.
In the meanwhile I found that Linux Deploy has some very useful options including logging and debug mode, so I now have a copy of standard install, start, etc, log file. And the same in debug mode.
Is there a currently recommended method I should use to make these large files available?
Steps should be straightforward, and you should double-check they’re followed before posting your data…
First, backup your existing Android based system.
Install a bootloader. I don’t know about Linux Deploy, but if it works, fine. Else, I would always recommend researching your device in the XDA Developers Forum for their recommendation. Their bootloader and instructions would normally install Cyanogenmod (A community version of Android) but can be used to backup and install any new image.
Research your device’s ARM CPU and device model. Once identified, it’s used to find the correct new image you wish to install.
Backup your current image (which is different than the Android based backup in the first step).
Install your new image.
And, that should be it!
If you need to post a large logfile, you can post at openSUSE’s paste or the general pastebin, then provide the URL of your paste in a post in these Forums
Hi tsu2, It is important to ensure you don’t loose data, but Linux Deploy, I think works differently to what you may expect.
This application is open source software for quick and easy installation of the operating system (OS) GNU/Linux on your Android device.
The application creates a disk image on a flash card, mounts it and installs an OS distribution. Applications of the new system are run in a chroot environment and working together with the Android platform. All changes made on the device are reversible, i.e. the application and components can be removed completely. Installation of a distribution is done by downloading files from official mirrors online over the internet. The application requires superuser rights (ROOT).
Any time you install a new image, it will wipe out and replace what exists in the device ROM, there is no way to get around this.
This is why the extreme importance creating backups of both types as I described. Additional backups won’t hurt, and may be desirable to migrate to your new running OS.
