[help Wanted] Merge Partitions Without Losing Stock Mi Recovery On Linux Mint.

Nov 7, 2014

I have unmerged partitions [standard] layout on my Mi2s.
To have more system space, I want to setup my device with merged partitions.

I don't want TWRP on my device.

Currently I have Miui v7 - 5.9.2 multi language on my device.

How can I setup my device, so that unmerged partitions becomes merged partitions.
I see on the internet several solutions, but I want to know how to do this on Linux Mint.

Can some one give me a detailed explanation how to do this, because I don't want to brick my device.

Which partitions do you want to merge? System0 and system1 or data and sd-card?

You can try m1cha's scripts, but it installs TWRP. Now there is the problem: you can try to install miui with TWRP. If it works you have MiRecovery, Miui and merged partitions. If not you have to restore your phone (I don't know how to do this on linux)
