I don't see the point in a recovery partition. My Pandora travels in a carry case with SD slots and a couple extra SD cards, one blank, one with android stuff, and one with SZ 1.71 on it. If my stuff gets jacked, just pop it in and reflash. I would bet most people have the same. --- Double Post Merged, Apr 4, 2016, Original Post Date: Apr 4, 2016 --- Guess you missed notaz post. The image is about 1gb. You will have plenty of space. You still haven't said why your backup can't be on a microsd seems like that would work perfectly for you. I mean cmon we will have the potential to have 1.5TB worth of space (with all SD slots filled at 512GB), but you can only have a backup on the emmc? You are really stretching now. Can't remember your key? Walk over to the modem, reset it and use the default password. Next up: "But swordfish, what if you are cooking with hot oil and can't walk over"
