Title: [PATCH] Mount storage by UUID / Label
Post by: futeko.com on November 30, 2016, 02:11:37 PM
 This topic replaces the original (http://www.futeko.com/newforum/index.php?topic=1398.0 (http://www.futeko.com/newforum/index.php?topic=1398.0)) so opening post can always contain latest version and instructions.

Big thanks to qqq1971 and pcristi. It's all their work.

Compatible with all Android 5.1 and Android 7.0 firmwares.

This patch creates persistent mount locations according to UUID and drive label for attached local storage (internal SATA and USB). This location will stay the same on every boot, eliminating the problem where Q5/Q10 Pro can be inconsistent in where it mounts storage (sda1, sda2, sda3 etc) when multiple USB HDDs are attached.

Mount path:

/mnt/media_rw/disk-by-uuid/<uuid>
/mnt/media_rw/disk-by-label/<label>
/sdcard/media_rw/disk-by-uuid/<uuid>

Restrictions

* Only first 4 mounted disks will be linked
* For disk with multiple partions only first partition will be linked.
* If disks has identical labels only first disk will be linked.
* Wait about 2 min after boot. Master init script has delay before my script will be run.
* Be careful with deleting files from /sdcard/media_rw/ --> can lose your /video/movie/music/picture/etc...

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Porting my question over here - can this be evolved to bring back the DVD/BD-ROM support functionality we had with android 5 ?

Thank you !

I'm sure with little script correction. But i don't have external rom drive to check it.

General idia is include into list of discs  (sd*) list of rom drives - sr* and just mount it like discs. Additionaly check that sr* has UDF fs.

Code: [Select]
~> sudo blkid | grep sr
root's password:
/dev/sr0: UUID="48CB99C400A2640E" LABEL="BERLIOZ" TYPE="udf"

Box supports udf:

I have not understanding how to solve the problem of mounting discs with the andrioid version 7
the procedure will run throughout the player or you have to use a PC.
how do I communicate HIMEDIA q5 Pro with a PC and use the command prompt ???

Both the Q5 Pro and a Windows PC need to be on the same network.

You access Command Prompt on the Windows PC, navigate to the directory where the script is located and type 'RUN_ME'.

The script will ask you to input the IP address of the Q5 Pro. You can find this by, on Q5 Pro, going Home - Settings. IP address is shown with the Network icon.

Hello.
 With Mount_in_fix_point_and_sdcard_media_rw_1.0.4.1.rar  i can see my HDD on Sata on the q10 dlna server  with my TV Lg Smartshare . But i can not fast forward or backwards thru the video files, the Tv says  "Unsuported function in this file"
With  Mount_in_fix_point_and_sdcard_media_rw_1.0.5.rar i can not see my HDD on Sata on the q10 dlna server.

My q10 pro  has android version 5.1.1 kernel versoin 3.18.24 build number HMD-1.0.8 2016-10-12.193826

Is there a way to make it work , to fast forward or backwards inside the movie file , or should i wait for a next release or upcoming HMD 2.0.1 f/w ?

Title: Where are you finding the DVD/BD-ROM ?
Post by: afss on December 12, 2016, 10:53:45 AM
Before Android 7, I was going inside the File Explorer and the optical drive would show over there (whenever a disk was inside)

I can see the drive is being recognized when I boot my Q5 (same noises as before), but I cannot find it as before.

Please, any thoughts ?

Installed the script. Works partionally  for Label in combination with the Internal SATA HDD which shows up as empty. With UUID it works normally. For USB it works with some HDD only.

All HDD where Label does not work are physically accessed continually. Uninstalling the script stopped that undesired disk access.

What I am still missing is the translation to Media Center. I really expected the Labels or UUID to replace the pseudo random USBxxx identifications present there now also. Giving meaningful VL's per drive is feasible with 32 positions.

To answer a question Windows stores Volume Labels standard as UTF-16 (not UTF-8 as often presumed) allowing any value including spaces and 32 positions. Looked it up  8)

This will need HiMedia to update Media Center app, which I am sure they'll do when labels/UUID are implemented in next firmware.

Hello, I still have a problem after running the patch ( I chose standard installation)
My Q10 pro has firmware 1.0.8 2016-10-12.193826 .  It has an external usb 3 hard disk (3TB) and an internal sata hard disk 4 TB. Both work correctly and  I can access them both with the file explorer  and as samba windows share with my windows pc as well. 

After the install if I select  the disk by uuid  folder I see them both and I also see their content, while if I select the disk-by-label  I see both labels (volume for the usb one and store4tb for the internal) but   the internal hard disk is seen as empty (no folders and no files are displayed).

Thank you very much.
Best regards

Hello, the hard drive is still seen as empty if I browse it by label. I sent you,  as you asked me, the result of  the blkid adb shell command.
Should I, although the labels are ASCII  437 and unique  change the  current internal hard disk label (Store4TB). If I do it I should run again the path right?
Thank you very much.

I have 8 HDDs storage  attached to the player Himedia Q5 pro with Android 5.1. it work well and open all 8 disk everytime, sometimes  loses cover films only.
I  want to pass to android 7.
 about  the patch what means "Only first 4 mounted disks will be linked" ?
......that can be attached only 4 hard disks ,in all ? or 4  hard disk   for each host usb port ?
my problem is that I passed to Android 7 and  every boot, the 8 hard-disk  are not read all  . sometimes it opened  only 2 , another only 3
So,  I have applied the patch but not solve the problem for me.
I tried to mount the all 8 disk  using the folder " disk-by UUID" and another time by " disk by label " , but  at every boot it not opens  the 8 disk all,  and always lose the cover and films informations .
I went back to Android 5.1.with much regret, but at least so it opens all disks.

At the moment with Android 7 + patch the limit is 4 attached drives.

I expect there to be no limit with the official solution in firmware 2.0.1.

This patch doesn't change drive name for Samba server (as you see them through PC), only for drives when seen from Q5/Q10 Pro apps.

You can't change it manually. That is the problem that this patch addresses. I suggest installing this patch and changing your Kodi database so it points to the drive mounted according to label.

If you have an SD card, a USB stick inserted then the HDD would probably be seen as sdb1. I use 2 HDDs, an internal one and an external one. I feared that they would probably switch the order they are being detected, but I had zero issues on any firmware (but I only have one partition on any HDD). Unplug everything and make sure you only have the internal HDD connected. Connect anything after it boots. Or you can use this patch to have it mounted in the same folder everytime.

So i have to install this patch every time i update the firmware from now on?
I'd rather leave it as sd2, if that doesn't change again.

The internal HDD is all i have connected.

Yes, you have to install the patch every time you flash a new release. Does it have several partitions? It is strange that it is seen as sda2 right now.

Storage mounted by UUID was a part of a 2.0.1 private beta firmware that never made it into 2.0.1 final.

Hopefully HiMedia will add it to future firmware so the patch doesn't have to be reinstalled.

@tmihai20:

It's only one partition.
Took old hdd out of Q10 Pro, formatted new hdd in my pc, then booted up Q10 Pro with new hdd inside -> sda2.
I don't get it either, there must be some "file remains" of the old hdd somewhere  ???

@futeko.com:

That would be preferable indeed.
Right now there are too many manual patches created by users that could easily just be implemented.

Check via samba share if only  /mnt/media_rw/sda1/Android/data/com.google.android.youtube is there and if yes just remove sda1.

@DancesWithChickens: put in a PC and check if there is another hidden partition. I use dedicated software, not any of the Windows tools as they are known to do things their own way. If you created the partition yourself, then you did something wrong.

It worked, but I lost my bigger data. I installed via option 1 and it did not work. Then I installed it via option 2 directly (no uninstall). I can now read my HDD via the media player and via my network. All folders are intact, but my movies and Serie episodes are all gone. An srt file is the only file left on the hdd.

Are my files deleted or can't it be read by my network / media player? Before installing this patch I had no problem with the large files. I could browse through it and open them.

Post by: derkallevombau on March 11, 2017, 06:14:54 AM
First, I wish to thank the creators for this solution.

My HDD also has a hidden partition resulting in the actual partition being recognised as sda2. Parted revealed to me that there is a MSR partition, although I used Acronis Disc Director, no MS tool. ADD doesn't even show the MSR partition it created.

But that shouldn't be an issue, even multiple visible partitions should be mounted correctly, so I took a look at the script and observed that it tried to mount sda1 by the label of sda2, which gave an error, but the already created folder prevented it from mounting sda2 afterwards. Furthermore, it didn't handle labels with blanks correctly because of some path variables without quotes.

So I altered the part that uses ls to retrieve the devices. Now it uses blkid for that, so only partitions with a valid file system are even considered for mounting. I tested it with the internal HDD and some USB sticks, works perfectly for me so far. If anyone is interested, I'm going to attach it, but without any kind of warranty, and hopefully the creators won't be annoyed by me for messing up their work ;)

Hi,

I have a q10 pro and installed a 1tb HDD.. I have patched my android 7 system with futeko firmware so it can also be seen on upnp server.

It happened to me twice now that ALL my large files (movies & serie episodes) are deleted from the hard disk. The folders and srt files are still intact.

I watch the files using kodi. I went to my HDD using Asus file Manager. And I can really see the files getting deleted while I am doing nothing strange.

Can anyone tell me what is going on and how to prevent? ? I'm getting tired if downloading everything time by time again.

Maybe my expectation is wrong or just don't get it what to do, but does not work for me.

First what i expect with only an Internal HDD with VL "A10 DVDs" in A10:
- When connecting from my PC with Samba to see under: /Share/ "A10 DVDs" and not /share/sda/sda2
- When using the standard browser (=files with a10)  not HDD1 but "A10 DVDs"
Maybe that is already a wrong assumption but this is what Realtek RTD1295DD based players all do.

What i do:
- Unpack the "Mount_in_fix_point_and_sdcard_media_rw_1.0.7.rar" to my PC
- Run the batch and make a connection.
- Select option 2, wait it to reboot.
Look via Samba or the standard browser/poster system for a drive (hopefully indicated with the Volume label now)
Title: Re: [PATCH] Mount storage by UUID / Label
Post by: pcristi on March 29, 2017, 11:03:33 AM
/Share/ "A10 DVDs" and not /share/sda/sda2 --> this mange by vold, I don't have knowledge how to patch it.
To get little bit closer to your idea open fix_mount.sh with notepad++ and replace  /disk-by-label with empty string for 10 time and RUN_ME.bat with option 1 again.

After reboot will be like that.
(http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/22b7/mkt1qc8aa2uxj6jzg.jpg?size_id=4)

Realtek RTD1295DD use UUID for mount, and Zidoo Explorer/ZDMC(fork of SPMC)/Home Theater/etc apps converter to Volume label.
Normal Android Explorer like Es Explorer/Solid Explorer show UUID on my Zidoo X9s.
Samba Server still use sda/sdb/etc and share as Disk_sda1/Disk_sdb1/etc  because is power by openWRT, of course can use own samba template to get need things.

if HiMedia/Egreat want to change to Volume label they application like MediaCenter/EgreatTV can do by itself or wait HiSilicon to do they job and provide a binar(source) vold working proper on SDK with UUID.

That scope of  this script is only to make easy life for Kodi 16.1 user and HiSilicon DLNA users providing fix source for library.

I just experienced the same, it is Asus File Manager that deletes the files! I opened it for the first time after installing the patch, it showed a message on improvements in a new version while I could hear the HDD working, and the message couldn't be closed for several seconds. After that, several folders and subfolders were empty, while the folders itself were still there. Immediately before opening Asus File Manager, I had played some files in these folders to ensure that they had been transferred properly.

So steer clear of Asus File Manager when using this patch! Anyway, would be interesting to know what causes the app to act like this...

Post by: eccles on January 24, 2018, 10:35:21 AM
After adding a third external USB drive and screwing up the mount order again, I've finally got around to installing this patch (1.0.6). I remember someone mentioned that mounting by volume name saw the volumes showing as mounted but only one volume showed any content. This also appears to happen to me. I have four drives, one internal and three USB, labelled Media 1, Media 2, Media 3 and Media 4 respectively. Only the internal drive Media 1 shows any content. Did this problem with the previous user ever get resolved?

UUID mounts work fine so I am using this method to map my content. You can rename the mount name from the big string of numbers to whatever you want anyway so once set up it makes little difference.

Incidentally the patch gives the added advantage that the mounts will be correct even if some drives are not turned on.
Title: Re: [PATCH] Mount storage by UUID / Label
Post by: eccles on February 04, 2018, 07:28:23 PM
Further to my last post, I've worked out that when attempting to use the Volume mounts the volume that gets content shown is always the first volume that Android finds and mounts. It might be the internal drive or an external USB drive, whatever Android decides. Any further drives that get found and mounted do not show content by volume name. Content per UUID is recognised. One of my USB drives is a Seagate Hub backup which can act as a hub for two further drives. I attached two portable drives on this and they were recognised by the Q10 as additional volumes. Moreover, with the patch applied both UUIDs were listed in addition to those already attached making a total of SIX identified drives including the internal HDD. I could view the content of every one from within Kodi. The total number of volume names recognised was five, I.e. four of the five attached plus the internal HDD but again only one volume could be read from these mount points.
So, it seems that to accommodate more than four external drives, even if using the volume names work for you, mapping your library to the UUID mounts is the way to go. I got six total UUIDs seen and viewed but I have no idea what the limit is, if any.
Title: Re: [PATCH] Mount storage by UUID / Label
Post by: james1961 on February 05, 2018, 08:05:46 PM
you are wrong .
for me, the player after installing the patch, recognizes the hard disk volumes in two different ways :or with its own identifying name, or with its  serial name ( UUID or label ) the problem is another.
every time I turn on the player does not immediately recognize the connected hard disks but  I must  disconnect and the re-connect them  again.
after that the volumes are recognized well with  also the film covers
Title: Re: [PATCH] Mount storage by UUID / Label
Post by: eccles on February 06, 2018, 09:42:07 AM
Nope, not wrong James. I tried what you're suggesting, remounting the USB drives after switch-on. They were reacquired by Android but Kodi still couldn't see their content by volume label, only the label itself. Restarting Kodi had the same outcome. Viewing UUIDs I could see each drive's content. It seems that for some reason not everyone has the same result.
 
But whether or not volume labels work for you, for me at least the use of UUIDs to direct consistent access to content corrects a flaw in the use of Android on the Q10 that is a real pain, and P Cristi deserves a big thanks for writing the patch. An added bonus that I have discovered is that the four device limit can be exceeded by using UUIDs to identify and access external drives. I'd be interested to know what the actual limit is, if any.

Update: 1.07 seems to work for me with volume labels populated correctly. But since UUIDs work ok too I may as well continue using them.

Post by: eccles on September 22, 2019, 04:01:00 PM
You appear to have installed the patch correctly so I don't know why it didn't work. Once the patch reboots the box it should be installed. As well as sda1 and sdb1 you should also have disk-by-uuid and disk-by-label. You may have to wait for a minute for the box/patch to pick up the disks after booting.
I have remained on version 2.0.4 so I don't know if the patch still works on 2.1.4. The later firmware versions have all added more bugs than they resolved for me and I can do without Bluray menus.
There is a version 1.07 of the patch which might be worth trying.
BTW I presume you meant android version 7; version 10 isn't available for installation on the Q10.

If the drive is not auto mount by Android, how do I fix it?  Any advice?  Thanks in advance.

If it is showing as sdb1 it is mounted by android. I can only suggest that ES File explorer doesn't like it for some reason. Too large maybe? If it is a new drive you may need to format it in a PC as an NTFS drive before you can use it.

It's not showing sdb1.  The device is listed under /mnt/media_rw/

If it's listed there it has been mounted as sdb1. I have no idea why the q10 doesn't like it. I won't reply further to this thread because you have started another.

So, how does this work when using Linux OS (Linux Mint 19.1)?

I have a 3,5 inch SATA HDD (NTFS formatted) placed inside the Q10. At first it wouldn't show up in the box until I connected a USB 3 cable from the USB 3 slave port (on the left side of the box) to my PC running Linux.
I also have a USB 3 cable connected from the host usb 3 port at the back of the player to my PC. When I connect that however, the HDD disappears again inside the TVbox (under Media Center).
It does show up in my filemanager in Linux however (name/label is Xtreamer, as that was my old mediaplayer which also had a host usb 3 port and when connected to my PC, it would automatically be detected.) when I press on it under Devices in my Linux Filemanager it won't mount.
If I try it through a terminal with: sudo mount /dev/sdd1 (this is what it shows when I hover over it in the filemanager), it states it cannot find it in my fstab
Thing is, in my PC I also have a 2 TB HDD as a data backup disk. When I press that in my filemanager it just gets mounted.
If I try the same in a terminal with: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 (this is what it shows when I hover over it in the filemanager), it also states it cannot find it in my fstab. Which is correct, cuz it doesn't show in my fstab, but it does get mounted when I press on it in my Filemanger under devices.
So how come that HDD gets mounted without an issue, but I can't seem to be able to mount the HDD disk that is directly hooked up through a USB 3 cable to the tvbox' host usb 3 port?
I have identified the UUID of the HDD inside the TVbox and I know it's device sdd1, so how come I am not able to mount it?
