Default How to upgrade sd card

I am replacing my class 2 8gb card with a class 10 16gb. What is the best way to partition correctly and transfer files without flasing the rom again?

Edit: Maybe I should have continued this in the thread I started about Mik3D...

Try this:
old sd card in phone, transfer contents to computer.
Power down phone, remove old sd card, insert new sd card.
Boot into bootloader, then from there into recovery. Select partition sd card
Partition sd card to ext-3...set swap to 0, partition size 1028, the rest for fat32. While in recovery, plug phone into computer, use the usbms toggle to mount phone and move files back to new sd card...unmount phone, reboot.

hmm?
Under partition sdcard is
Partition sdcard
Repair sd:ext
SD:ext2 to ext3
SD:ext3 to ext4

I selected partition sdcard, set swap size to 0, partition size to 1024, remainder fat32. HOWEVER, i believe it wants to partition ext2. I didnt see an option for ext3

Select SD: ext2 to ext3
then you are done.
If you decide later to go from ext3 to ext4, no data loss will occur.

Got it. Had to partition sd first, then upgrade ext2 to ext3. Probably an Amon recovery thing being slightly different than CWM

Some of your app icons changed? For example, what apps? And they changed when? After partitioning?

Well I partitioned and used the function in the Mik3D rom to free up space by moving all aps to sd. So I am not sure when it happened, but I moved them as soon as I partitioned and transfered the files back to the card.

For example, the generic icon is on the following aps:
es file explorer, gas buddy, trapster, sound hound, pandora, netflix, camera ics, draw free, and TB.

Its not a major issue, but if there is an easy way to fix it, I'm game.

The reason I asked was, does Mik3d have DarkTremors baked into the rom?
If it does, then there is no need to physically move your apps to sd card. Darktremors will do that automatically and move them to the ext3 you created, thereby freeing up internal memory. DT creates a symbolic link from the phone to the ext3, tricking the phone into thinking the apps are still on the internal memory. If you are physically moving apps to sd card and DT is trying to do its thing, I think something will misbehave. Let me link this info for you....

sounds like you moved the apps to external sd storage, rather than the sd-ext, so this is probably why you got some issues.

A quote from the last link I linked

Quote:
What WILL happen if you use the FroYo native apps2sd or Sam Lu's APPS2SD/Pro in conjunction with Dark Tremors a2sd:
Like I said at the beginning of this post, DarkTremors a2sd automatically moves all user apps to the SDext3 partition you created & creates a symlink to the /data/app folder so that the OS *thinks* your apps are being run from internal storage. When they are in fact being run from the sdext3 partition. If you use the FroYo native apps2sd, or Sam Lu's APPS2SD application & move your apps to the .android_secure folder on the root of your sd card you will BREAK DarkTremors a2sd and create a very undesirable scenario that will likely result in a restore or wipe & re-flash!!!

Essentially you think you are moving all of your user apps normally stored on the /data partition, to the .android_secure folder on the root of your SD card, when they were in reality already on the ext3 partition, If you do this, you will hate yourself.

I have not run into this situation before.....I would assume that the rom is utilizing DTa2sd but I really do not know.... if it is, and you also moved apps to the sd card, and if your apps are not working quite right, it may be wise to reflash the rom after wiping all except sd card, and redownloading apps.
If Mik3d has DTa2sd....follow?

Ugh, just to get the icon right, its not worth reflashing and setting everything up again.

There are no more aps in internal memory for me to move, they all got moved to sd.

You could try moving them back to internal storage then clearing cache and dalvik in recovery.

You got Titanium backup? on the main screen where it lists your storage partitions, is there one for sd-ext?
Also if you got Terminal Emulator do the following:
type su then hit enter
type a2sd check

does it tell you a2sd is installed?

Shouldn't he just try "su" enter, then "a2sd install" and that will tell him if mik has dt baked in if it works right?

Yes but the possible problem being is, he already used some option in Mik to physically move his apps to sd card, which used in conjunction with DT is not a good thing. Whether DT has already done this or not, I am not sure.
So at this moment, he moved his apps to sd. If he issues that command, I think he will lose apps or something will go wonky (according to the link I provided for him to read).
I just wanted to know if DT is currently linking his apps to his sd-ext or not

Yeah just run a2sd check first.
If you got it installed but not running it will say that a2sd is flagged or something like that. If that's the case move the apps back to internal storage then execute the a2sd reinstall command I think would be better.

If it tells you its installed and running its probably best to uninstall the apps that have been moved, clear cache and dalvik and reinstall them. If you've used TiB this shouldn't be much of a problem.

As I stated in another thread Mik3D, MikG do not use Darktremors as the a2sd it's more a variation of cm a2sd where, if the sdcard is partitioned, the rom will automatically recognize the sdext if you're not partitioned, you will not see the sdext.

More times than not if anyone is familiar with DT's a2sd, your phone reboots 3 times before going to the splash screen. Mik3D and MikG does/will not do this even if your sdcard is partitioned

I then respectfully ask you this question, if he is on Mik3D, then why, when he runs the a2sd check in TE, does it come up DT a2sd as he posted? if, as you say, Mik run a cm variation of DT.

Ok, what do you need to know from the check?
It says DT apps2sd 2.7.5.2 status report and then the details

I guess the simplest way to check the differences between the 2 is go ahead and unpartition your sdcard. Flash Mik3D or MikG and see if the phone boots and it obviously will. Then try the rom you're on, reloaded, and at the end of aroma check a2sd(DT) and see where you get. I'll bet you'll be on the white htc evo4g screen forever because you're not partitioned and to run DT, you have to have a partitioned sdcard.

I guess my point is just because you're running a2sd check in TE doesn't mean that you're running DT. The cm a2sd variation allows any rom flasher the ability to boot the rom whether you're partitioned or not, but again, if you're sdcard is partitioned then you'll reap the benefits of the sdext.

So just to get it clear in my head...
Hypothetical scenario...
I have an unpartitioned sd card.
I flash Mikg which has the DT variation, cm, baked into it.
It will boot fine but will not send apps to ext (obviously.)
I say to myself, "I'm gonna flash Reloaded now"
I flash reloaded, and due to the fact my card is unpartitioned and Reloaded has DT baked in, it will take forever to boot.?

And why did his a2sd check command, spit out the DT screen if he's on MikG.

I'm not trying to argue with ya here just trying to learn a little more.

I run a version of dta2sd that doesn't reboot at all, just boots once and apps are moved but not dalvik cache, that's flagged.
Its likely Mik is running an older version of dta2sd like that in dsixda's kitchen, unless he flashed DT's after flashing the ROM.

@op i know this may not sound like this is something you want to do. but just to make it easier i would do a full wipe and start over. so basically:
1.nandroid, wipe and flash mik3d.
2.boot up and sign in.
3.download titanium backup and restore your apps w/ tb
4.check the main menu in tb, you should see sd-ext listed with how much is being used and how much free space you have left. if you do not see this then a2sd is not running, especially if you see that none of the apps that you restored were moved. it should show it being used. this is the easiest way in determining what is going on with a2sd. sure getting the a2sd check will also report it, but it is hard to read unless you know what you are looking for.

and since you are partitioned now, you should never use the apps2sd feature that is built into sense. it only moves part of the app and not the whole app. and like you have found out it will break a2sd.

mik3d has a2sd built in so it should move your apps automatically to the card without you having to do anything. just check tb's main screen.

Ya, I'll have to give that some thought before I decide if all this is worth a missing link to an app icon....LOL. However, I did create a nice little stream of comments in this thread.

Ok so I will run the command and try to post the results and report what what TB says

oh yeah you will need tohe pro key to see your sd ext. the free version is very limted. and to me it is money well spent. the devs for tb are awesome and i always like to support these guys. so if you do not go that route then you will need to do the a2sd check in TE.

ok so going by what you just posted you are partitioned and that a2sd is working. if you want a detailed explanation then check this post by one of AF's walking Android Bible akazabam:A2SD confusion....

ooops sorry i missed read your output. the part where it says "No Apps2sd flag file found". this means that you do not have the sym links for you apps.

so to move the apps to the sd card you will need to run a2sd reinstall. this will move your apps to the card fully. but before you do that i would move all of your apps back to the phone first using the built in apps2sd(if that makes sense).

If you got a root explorer, like es explorer, go to system/bin and check for that starta2sd file. If it's not there then let us know.

That's why it's not working. I'm running the same version as you so I will try and post a copy of the file for you. Give me a few.

edit: for some reason I couldn't add this as an attachment in doc or zip form.

starta2sd download here. Put on your sd card and move to the /system/bin/ directory.

change permission to 755 (owner = read, write, execute all checked. group and others = read and execute checked)

reboot to recovery clear cache and dalvik. then reboot phone.
make sure all apps are internal and then try the a2sd reinstall command.

If this doesn't work could have been a bad d/l of the Mik ROM so you'll have to download again and re-flash the rom most likely.

This version is DT, but its based off CM a2sd method so that's most likely why there is only a single boot.

well, I was able to get the file added to the directory, run the reinstall command and it said moving aps to sd. I had a bunch of force closes, but eventually it said rebooting....
THis is the TE now:
