Cleanrom 2.0. fixed it. So stoked.
I have already used flash tool to flash cleanrom 1.10 onto my device. So I am trying to use my brand new Micro SD (32gb) for backup purposes and to reflash roms without needing to use a pc (since I don't currently have ready access to a computer). Unfortunately, TWRP does not detect any storage other than the default internal (both when in recovery mode, through the TWRP app, and through twrp via root essentials). When going through the XD+'s settings menu and ES explorer; the card is detected and useable, but just not in TWRP. I have seen a few posts on this but none have resolved this for me so I will start with the steps I've taken to get those out of the way.
I have reformatted the SD card through the XD+'s settings, as alternately internal and external storage. This did not resolve.
I have attempted to use Aparted app to partition the card, unfortunately Aparted crashes immediately upon opening.
I have attempted to partition the card through TWRP in recovery mode, but since it does not detect the card, that is a pointless effort.
I have reformatted the SD card using windows 10 by right clicking the card and selecting format. I have tried to format it as FAT32 which did not resolve. I tried NTFS which did not resolve. I have tried exFat which did not resolve. I have gone into properties and renamed the card, did not resolve.
I had seen a post which mentions 'TWRP external SD Loading - Doesnt recognize SD Card' is a known issue.https://www.reddit.com/r/gpdxd/comments/a4u4y5/using_stock_or_cleanrom_is_there_any_bugs_that/
I cannot help but wonder if this is common. If so, why does XDrescue and other starter guides not mention this, when using an SD is so key to flashing and recovery?
I'm at my wit's end and I am begging for help. I'm stuck with a 200$ paperweight because I couldn't backup NVram/NVdata so my wifi is shot, nor can I reflash to the rev that doesn't have the sound glitch because I can't actually use TWRP. Has anyone found a consistent fix or workaround? Can anyone with Cleanrom 2.0 say whether this issue was addressed in the release? Any help would be massively appreciated.
*update* One moment the SD is accessible through the XD+ and randomly become corrupted without me even interacting with the interface or hardware whatsoever. Then after repairing and reformatting the card it will just randomly corrupt again. Has anyone else had this issue?
