I have a 64GB Sandisk Ultra MicroSD just gathering dust and I am very interested in swapping the MicroSD in my Organelle M with it. As the system files are hosted here and there is a boot partition, is there a step by step guide to transitioning to a new MicroSD card? The 64Gb should provide plenty of storage for patches. Please let me know if there is a process that is documented.
you can just put a new image on the 64b card,
and then you need to extend the partition used for the patches.
this is pretty easy, as the patches are on a separate partition (mounted as /sdcard) to the main OS (aka rootfs)
I’ll update my resizeSDcard patch in next few weeks,
but you can do it manually as described here:
note: the device partitions have changed between the organelle-1 and organelle-m, so you will need to change these when following the process - this is why the resizeSDCard won’t work, and would make you organelle-m unbootable (except ive made it so it won’t run on the M ) - this is what i need to update in the patch.
its trivial change - but the whole change, test, upload - ends up a taking a little more time that I have available at the moment.
I just get the organelle M and first spend my time reading this forum
i’m surprise, the manual say it is easy to paste patchs in the organelle, but don’t see a folder for patchs
as i read this forum, do i understand that i need to create a new partition for patchs on my s’ card ? ( a 32Go )
My english is not good
Do you on mac os if this partitionning sd card is easy ?
Hello @fabamarie ,
Not sure if you figured it out, but just in case: your mac won’t be able to display the /sdcard partition, as it’s formatted for linux and not natively viewable on mac or windows. Even if you don’t have a WiFi access, the organelle can generate its own network for you to access the patch manager. See the manual about this.
Hello Keith, and no problem, I’m happy to help if I can!
My comment above about the Organelle’s own network (AP mode) was for @fabamarie, as they were trying to copy new patches to the organelle but didn’t have WiFi.
You are trying to resize the SD card, correct?
GParted is a disk utility for linux, very convenient for editing and resizing disk partitions. (but you need a linux system to run it, either a computer or a virtual machine.)
You can do it manually as well, but that requires some terminal use. (see this post)
