Question about system partiation size and system.img size

From the wiki, I seem to gather that if the system.img partition is set to 768 MiB, that I can put a full 768MiB in there.


Is that correct, or did I misinterpret anything? There is no need to leave any empty space at either end of the partition?

Yes, you can set it up to 768MB in Windows and use the full space.

In Linux, you can make it any size you want, eg. 1GB to have even more space.

Just remember to also change the parameter file to reflect the change in size of the partitions.

Of course.


I just wanted to make sure I didn't leave to any empty space at either end for anything reserved. I had already made an image of 1 GiB with the associated partition change in the parameter file, and it was working. I just wanted to not clobber anything in the next partition accidentally.


Thanks.

please make sure "offset + size = offset of next partition".

Oh, I'm good. I made a parameter.txt partition generator spreadsheet to avoid having to make silly calculation mistakes. Thanks for the concern though.
