SAMSUNG Galaxy S2 reformating – success

Samsung Galaxy S2 with the internal storage size visible
I’ve been having for some time problems with my Samsung Galaxy S2. The primary (DATAFS) partition is only 2GB large which is increasingly insufficient for apps and basic updates. I did a small search on the internet and found a few hints and tried them out. Not all of these were successful. In the end I succeeded, and here is what I did to get there:

  1. Backup

    So first of all I did a backup of all my data. A simple mounting as USB and copying all the data was basically sufficient. However one thing that needed special care (in my case) were SMS messages.
    I used Kies to back them up, however after installing CyanogenMod these got lost. Since backing up to Kies only allows to restore to a phone with original SAMSUNG OS and getting back the SAMSUNG OS after repartitioning failed in my case, I lost all my old SMS messages :(.

  2. Install ClockworkMod & flash a custom ROM

    This is unfortunately a must, since a bare repartitioning made my phone OS to crash (don’t ask me why). So I ended up flashing CyanogenMod. I propose also flashing this outstanding mod using this install guide. For details I would refer to this guide, since it also includes the installation of ClockworkMod.

  3. Create a Backup

    This was only a safety measure, since restoring a full backup of the previous phone state (original Samsung OS) doesn’t work. Doing a backup of a clean CyanogenMod flash seems unnecessary to me.

  4. Reformat the phone

    Then I basically went through this Guide from xda-developers. I succeeded with this variant, since this uses the Android/Linux reformatting commands and the are clearly described (you simple know what you are doing) and this is not the case for flashing a PIT file of unknown origin with Heimdall.

  5. Reflash CyanogenMod

    After repartitioning, I got into some problems with apps that have already been installed. So I reflashed the phone after repartiotioning once again and everything works fine now.
