growpart not found

I just tried to resize the partition on my SD card using growpart, which didn't work because apt couldn't find the package. So I did the following: 1. install gparted 2. connect to the phone via ssh -X phablet@[ipadress] 3. starting gparted on my ubuntu machine via ssh with a GUI. In gparted it's very easy to resize a partition. now I have all the free space. :)

you might think about adding this to the manual? --Foxchild (talk) 16:07, 8 March 2020 (UTC)

seperate official and unofficial software releases ?

Is it a good idea to seperate the official and unofficial software releases ?

Yes when the number of releases grow even larger. Other categoration like open source or not may also be applied. A table with class="wikitable sortable" would help for those categorations. --RainSlide (talk) 19 Feb 2020

Firmware entries section, or new page?

Perhaps some mention of lower level software that can be updated, such as firmwares and bootloader? I've just encountered the crust page, and will link it where it's mentioned already. -- JerseyDevil (talk) 19:33, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

I don't see an added value in that, since this page is fully about OS releases (despite the title), like for all other device-specific pages too. And I would prefer if you stay on your other account dsimic, instead of using sockpuppets to make edits. --Fxc (talk) 08:52, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
