I'm currently using Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on an old Qualcomm, ARMv7 device, with a 2GB SD card.
I want to bootstrap Debian Wheezy onto the SD card, but FAT32 can't handle symlinks and attributes, so I need to format the card as an ext filesystem. My computer does not have microSD slots, so I'll need to unmount the sdcard and then use some tool to format it from Android.
The problem is that I don't have any "unmount" options in the settings. I tried to root the phone and use ADB to run
umount, but it fails on "Device or resource busy".
The phone isn't currently rooted, but I can easily do it in a few moments if needed.
I have a USB cable and ADB installed on my PC.
My PC has Gentoo Linux installed, and I have Debian Jessie available if needed.
I'm OK with using the command line.
May some Android comrade help me?
