Info on use of 18.104.22.168 on eMATIC XL Pro 2 (allwinner)
I found your post and decided to try it since the references to /dev/block/nand? were compatible with my few-day-old tablet.
The only difficulties I have with it for my application are:
The /sdcard should be the INTERNAL storage (/dev/block/nandj), and
sd-ext needs to be EXTERNAL, which on this is the /dev/block/mmcblk0, mmcblk0p1...
I would like to make this minor change myself, but I cannot determine how to 'unpack' the image. All the others Ive modified were CPIO-configured files with a u-boot 64-byte header...
I have, therefore, not attempted ANY SORT of formatting (and do not intend to unless I get 'desperate'), but otherwise it seems to work flawlessly on my Pro2.
It is the ONLY MAJOR flaw in this machine... the lack of FULL backup capability. Your CWMr will correct that and make me VERY happy!!
... once I can get the /SDCARD and SD-EXT thing fixed!
And THANK YOU VERY MUCH for doing this! This is the first tablet I have that uses this configuration and I am pleased to know that I will (soon) be able to protect the software in this way!
I did not get the VOL+ startup routine to work, but as I already have it rooted, I took the boot-recovery.sh file and put it in /system/bin... so whenever I wish to run it I need only open Terminal and call it. Nice & easy! I made 'copies' of /dev/block/nandg long ago, so I can always 'revert' to the original if/when necessary.

Would you be able to give me a step by step on what you did to make this work? I'm new to using the terminal emulator.
