Convert your Oppo Find 7 and 7a to Cyanogenmod with 128gb storage!

In this tutorial we show you how to convert your Oppo Find 7 and 7a, I’ve done it on both devices.

Credit to XDA and original developers who created the method.

The problem

Probably you are feeling like me. This is a great device, but the storage layout is frustrating. Only 3GB for /data an 9GB for /sdcard !!!
– Just a few apps before the storage is full
– Google Music will not be able to download more than a few albums

The reason

Oppo decided to not have unified partition layout (/data and /sdcard do not share the same space as any other modern phone does). This is something my three years old Galaxy Nexus has!!!!


There are a few, but without Oppo’s support (meaning: repartitioning) all of them will be non standard and will limit ROM interoperability.
On this thread I will focus on three of the less dangerous solutions:

  • Option 1 : Use “sdcard0″ (9GB) as /data, “userdata” (3GB) as “sdcard1″ and the external sdcard as “sdcard0″
  • Option 2 : WIP : Create a volume group (LVM) using “userdata” and “sdcard0″ physical devices (totalling 13GB). Use this as /data and the external sdcard1 as sdcard0. This is based on an idea by Entropy512 and I take no credit at all
  • Option 3 : WIP : Same as 2 plus unified partition layout (/sdcard0 on top of data). Leave sdcard1 as sdcard1 if you have it.

What you will need

Options 1 and 2 require an external sdcard. Option 3 does not (although you can still use it)
You should have installed fastboot and adb in order to flash a new recovery and do backups.
You need to use my special TWRP builds only.

Option 1

This is the easiest (but less than ideal) solution. You will have 9GB in /data and use your external sdcard as /sdcard0 (as if it was internal). the remaining 3GB will be considered as an external /sdcard1.

Option 1 outcome

The trick is simple, just replace the partition table (fstab.qcom) with this one. Put it on device/oppo/find7/rootdir/etc/fstab.qcom and brunch find7. Additionally rebuild TWRP with a similarly modded twrp.fstab. Alternatively you might want to rebuild the boot.img ramdisk, build for another ROM (OMNI is a great option too) OR use the downloads below:

* CM11 with the new parition layout (source built on 20140626)
* TWRP with similar partition layout (although external_sd is still external_sd and internal_sd is sdcard0).

1) Use your existing standard TWRP to do a nandroid backup to your external sdcard
2) Reboot into your bootloader (adb reboot bootloader or hold on your vol up and power button)
3) Flash this special TWRP image (fastboot flash recovery twrp-find7a-swapped-data-sdcard.img)
4) Reboot into recovery (power off, hold vol down and power button)
5) Click on Wipe, Advanced Wipe. Check Dalvik Cache, System, Data, Cache, Internal_sd, Android Secure (pretty much everything EXCEPT external_sd)
7) Reboot
8) Profit

Last comment is right F it. If XDA doesn’t want me to link to them screw it we’ll do it here anyway. I’m assuming once I do this I won’t be posting there further as the admin will probably get mad or ban us but that’s OK. I’ll let you guys our viewers post for us.

HTC Nexus tablet and Moto X+1 leak at Google IO

Google really announced no hardware. Wearable yes, but no tablet, usually this is where the nexus 7 has been announced.
Google announced nothing on the hardware front, and further Motorola pulled back the moto 360 for undisclosed reasons.
But just because hardware didn’t get announced does not mean it wasn’t on display. Google had it right in front of you.
1st the new HTC nexus tablet was shown in an image at pocketnow that they were able to find via right on Google’s site for IO, 2nd we have the moto x+1 appearing in images with the moto 360 and this same frame image or while the guys at techno buffalo were getting footage also caught the device. (Accident? I’ll let you decide) remember we saw this with the nexus 5 as well. I like to call it a casual leak.

Some have said it’s a moto x held really low…… my only issue with that (and look the photo) there is no SIM card slot on that side of the phone exposed. If it’s a moto x there should be one right in the middle. But there is not….

But as always people will believe what by they want to believe.
I’ll say this again, remember when people said the HTC Duo camera was fake…… Yeah we all know how that turned out.

Check the images and let us know what you think.

Moto x+1 leaks to multiple sources (Update Malicious Fake)

***Update*** According to one reader or user this render/image is a fake. In fact they claim they created it just to see what would happen. We were sent the images along with others I’m sure. We have to ask what’s the motivation for doing that. Well the person has owned up to it here in the comments. Ask them why?
That said as we stated our developer unit does not have a front facing speaker, stay tuned as we hope to see this launched at IO today.

Looks like the final images of the X+1 the finished product are coming in. Is this a coincidence right before Google IO?

The images were sent to several outlets and have been posted on forums. Before you say that’s just the moto x pay close attention to the front which shows the front firing speaker at the bottom.

Looks like this is ready for launch.



Moto X+1 to debut at Google IO says source

With the recent leaks of the 64GB model of the x+1 by TK and @evleaks dropping what looks like the budget version of the phone. It makes what out source told us Friday that more plausible.
According to our source Motorola had an entire shipment go missing. Exact details are not known on what that means, only that several hundred of the phones may be out in circulation. Further according to the source Motorola plans to release the X+1 with the moto 360 smart watch at Google IO. This seems very likely with all of.the info coming out on this device.

Do you think Motorola’s hand has been forced by the lost shipment and leaks, or did they always plan to release the phone at Google IO let us know in the comments.

*****Update looks like other publications have pulled the image, some are stating it’s a GPE moto E, will be interesting to see what’s the story behind it, but as we stated before sources state a lesser memory and higher memory premium option, guess only time will tell. As other publications have pulled the story and images we won’t , we are leaving this here for context*****
