plasma mobile anwers..

Wed Oct 04, 2017 7:54 am
hey guys,
I'm trying to install Plasma mobile on my nexus 5, but I'm not able to find much help online. There's a ton of unanswered questions, is the project discontinued? (nothing says so but nothing shows it's still going either.)
The error I keep getting is: "failed to create symbolic link 'pm-rootfs-latest.tar.gz': File exists".
I'm no developer nor a computer wiz..
help? anyone?

This project is very much active :-)

Can you try to remove the cache/pm-rootfs-latest.tar.gz file and retry?

Thanks

Hi, I also have problems installing plasma, sorry if i´m not in the proper post or past of the forum.

I tried install plasma on my nexus 5 "hammerhead" on linux mint following the instructions https://plasma-mobile.org/nexus-5/ but when i reach the step 2 (i didn't specify platform) on the phone and appears the TWRP Recovery with a slide option to modify (i tried sliding and not sliding) but the console always show the same:

Can you edit this line to have bs=4096 instead of bs=8192 and retry?

It worked, still getting the message
mount: mounting /dev/block/mmcblk0p27 on /cache failed: Device or resource busy
mount: mounting /dev/block/mmcblk0p28 on /data failed: Device or resource busy

But not the
unpacking rootfs tarball to system-image ... tar: write error: No space left on device

So now it is installed. Thank you very much

Hi! :)

There's a workaround for the mounting errors. They are provided by webwurli on github.

In short it's this: halfway the installation process, after the images files have been downloaded and the recovery image has been flashed to the phone, you will be asked for your password:
Code: Select all
Flashing recovery image ... + fastboot flash recovery cache/hammerhead/recovery.img
+ echo -n '[done]'
[done]+ fastboot boot cache/hammerhead/recovery.img
Downloading 'boot.img'                             OKAY [  0.689s]
booting                                            OKAY [  0.117s]
Finished. Total time: 0.817s
+ wait_for_device
++ adb shell echo 1
+ test -z ''
+ echo -n .
.+ sleep 3
++ adb shell echo 1
+ test -z ''
+ echo -n .
.+ sleep 3
++ adb shell echo 1
+ test -z ''
+ echo -n .
.+ sleep 3
++ adb shell echo 1
+ test -z $'1\r'
+ echo

++ readlink -f cache/pm-rootfs-latest.tar.gz
+ ./rootstock-touch-install /home/thomas/Downloads/pm-flashtool/cache/rootfs/pm-rootfs-20180524-110808.tar.gz cache/hammerhead/latest/system.img cache/hammerhead/latest/boot.img
[sudo] password for <your username>:


Don't enter your password here. You have to unmount the 'cache' and 'data' mount-points on your device first. On your phone, use the slider to enter TWRP and press the 'Mount' button. Then uncheck the 'Data' and 'Cache' checkboxes. That's it! On your computer you can now enter your user password and continue the setup process without the mounting errors.

However, there's another problem: the current plasma-mobile rootfs for the Nexus 5 (20180717-064515) is not working. Version 20180524-110808 is working though. You can install this by altering the 'pm-flash' script. Comment out line 50, and replace it with:
Code: Select all
ROOTFS_VERSION=20180524-110808


If you run the script with this alteration and unmount the cache and data points before the script starts flashing, you should be able to get Plasma Mobile up and running on your Nexus 5 :)

Many thanks to user webwurli for this!
