On my Lenovo K3 Note, apart from Boot (16MB), System (2169MB), Data (5584MB) and Cache (0MB); I can see many more partitions (in TWRP) like:
- Logo (8MB)
- Nvram (5MB)
- Recovery (16MB)
- Uboot (0MB)
- Proinfo (3MB)
- Protect (0MB)
- Parametr (0MB)
- Secro (6MB)
- Tee (10MB)
- Frp (8MB)
I'm referring to this article: http://www.cyanogenmods.org/forums/topic/take-nandroid-backup-twrp-recovery/
Which talks about PDS partition that's supposed to
keep your IMEI, modem information and all which does not affected as part of a custom ROM flashing.
Looking at the list of partitions on my phone, I don't see
- Where does it store IMEI and other such details?
- If I flash a custom ROM (Lineage OS 14.1 @ https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=133902&sort_by=date&sort_dir=DESC) will it be able to access IMEI and other details?
- What all these (above mentioned) partitions do?
- Is there a way I can remove any of them (that are not needed - if any, which ones) and merge it into data partition?
Note: I've checked following questions, but couldn't really get any clarity regarding my questions.
