This is a collection of useful commands to have when accessing your Didj from the command prompt. Its meant as a quick reference guide, for more complex procedures look in the How To'ssection of the Didj Wiki main page.

First, make the root partition mountable.

In the /etc/rc.d folder, remove these files, or back them up to a different folder.

rm K50example

Mount on Host

usbctl -d mass_storage -a enable
usbctl -d mass_storage -a unlock

Mount on Didj

usbctl -d mass_storage -a disable
usbctl -d mass_storage -a lock

Normal Mount Command

Mount the /Didj file system

mount -t vfat -o async,noatime /dev/mtdblock9 /Didj
