When porting a custom recovery,  it's important you specify the correct mount points in recovery.fstab to avoid problems. You might also need the mount points to dump a partition via adb dd method

Requirements


Steps to get a Mediatek, Spreadtrum, Qualcomm etc Android phone's mount points


Follow the steps below to get an Android phone's mount points

See the video tutorial below or @ https://youtu.be/yvpus846WZU

  1. Install a root browser (e.g ROM Toolbox lite) and navigate to the dev/block/platform folder
  2. Open each folder in the platform folder till you find a folder named "by-name"
  3. Take note of the name folder in which the "by-name" folder is found (for this tutorial, lets call it parentfolder)
  4. Alternatively, you can use the cd command in command prompt to run this search
  5. Launch ADB and type the code below. Press Enter after each line

    Code:

    adb devices
    adb shell
    su
    ls -al /dev/block/platform/parentfolder/by-name

when porting images (boot or recovery) you're going to need to know the mount points of that particular device you wish to port the image to

* thats what this tutorial is for

Thanks

from the selection you made, "2". 2 is for manual input
type in the mount point of /system partition on your device.
Code:

e.g
/dev/block/platform/soc.0/7824900.sdhci/by-name

if you still have more queries based on this, then create a new thread so we'll focus on this
see https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-514.html for how to create a thread
