I lost half of the space on the SD card after flashing


I used Etcher to flash the SD card with 0.3 but now if I go to Storage, it says that I only have 7.2GB in total (and 3.9 used).

What is the correct way to write in the SD card then? can I use dd (I’m on Linux). If dd can be used, what should be the correct way to do it?

sudo dd if=clockworkos_v0.3.img.bz2 of=/dev/sdX bs=4M ?

EDIT: and also, another question. Is it possible to see the remaining battery by percentage instead of the useless icon?


Afaik the filesystem needs to be expanded after being flashed to a sd card, since it still uses the original disk size when the image was created. This isn‘t related to dd.

I think i saw a post about expanding the filesystem the other day.


I took the SD car out again (for the next version I hope they put it on a more easily accessible place by the way) and use gnome-disk to extend the partition without a problem. Thank you.

I thought it was going to be like Lakka. There, you copy the img to the USB and then it expands automatically on the first boot.

I made a script to expand the file system, see my post here: GameShell won't recognize my 64gb card
