First of all all the best for upgrading!!!
Yes you are right. (but be careful in recovery go to install zip from sdcard>choose zip from sdcard option and don't select apply update.zip option)
No you don't need to be rooted to flash cwm or cm7. cm7 comes pre rooted.
Wipe data and wipe cache partition both before and after flashing cm7 for better performance and to flash without errors...
Yes the steps are same to flash to froyo and gb. Just get a gb or froyo rom and flash in odin ( this will remove custom recovery also)
Though steps might be same the oc and other patches might be different..
For partitioning your sdcard, go to CWM recovery>advance options>Partition your sdcard . THe size depends of how much apps will you install but at any cost 500 mb should be enough unless you want your large games to be installed on sd-ext.

The link given at the 1st post of this thread http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-mini-s5570/412415-rom-cyanogenmod-7-1-0-samsung-galaxy-pop-mini-gts5570-2.html is the latest cm7!

If you have any questions go through the links in the first post of the above thread... It has got everything in details!!!

For more questions you can visit this CyanogenMOD7 and Andro - ID. ROM for Galaxy Mini. Questions and tutorials here.

Don't worry everything will go right just do it....

It your choice , parasmi rom is also better and more customized than stock rom. You can get OC from this link http://www.mediafire.com/?7shfs8938g3l3

You can find a complete info regarding parasmi rom at this thread [ROM] [Samsung GT-S5570] The ROM that has no name **Final Version** - xda-developers

ext1/ext2/ext3/ext4 all are the same formats but later ones are extended and improved versions of ext format. It is better to go with ext4 partition.

dont worry cwm doesnt ask for ext3/4 options. yes partition is done in advanced option.
by default it creates ext3 i believe and ext3 is good enough for everything.
but u can later convert ext3 to ext 4 if u need.

So, basically you can flash on any gingerbread ...

Yes, CM7 is completely working is probably free of most bugs found in previous versions. You can falsh it without fear. dta2sd works very well eith cm7. Just flash it the right way. Need help on installing dta2sd read this

ALso, to go back to gb, flash gb rom from samfirmware. Its the same procedure you followed while upgrading to gingerbread... (Wipe data and cache before flashing gb)

Use root explorer and click the button R/W at the top to change to read write mode...

Dt a2sd works automatically once you install it... (make sure your phone reboots again after you reboot your phone from recovery while flashing a2sd, its not abnormal.)

It won't be necessaey if you aren't a huge gamer. About 500mb is enough for normal users.

Your sd-ext seems mounted at boot .... So, can't figure whats going wrong.

Download this latest A2SD script and flash it: http://www.darktremor.info/files/a2sd/a2sd-2.7beta5-signed.zip

Backup your current rom and apps
Format sd-ext
mount it at boot and flash the script in CWM recovery
[It might take some time for your phone to restart once you reboot from recovery.. ]

Try again as above... It should work...
To check if apps are linked to /sd-ext go to /sd-ext/app and see if your app are there or not also at /data/app check the size at the top of RE to match the size of /sd-ext/app folder...

You can also type a2sd check at terminal and see for APPS - LInked to SDcard OR install A2SDGUI and see check to see APPS ARE ON SDCARD on A2SD settings....

Good Luck!!!... You are going to need one

Well in your first post the A2SD was running as user not as root. So he was printing you access denied. If everything is working your app files davik-cache and etc.. should be on sd-ext only a link is on /data. Now check how much storage space left you have on your phone memory trough Settings > Storage. On the botton there is free space for internal memory . Please post how much space you have left in you internal memory trough Settings

It seems A2SD is working on your phone...

You can install A2SDGUI from market and use it, its the GUI that provides you to manage the settings of the script. You can also check there to see whether apps are on sdcard or not... It will say APPS are on sd on the A2SD tab.

Try fixing Permissions in CWM recovery advance options.

You can install go launcher and set it as default launcher.. THemes can be found here

You will lose al your data on old sd-card if you partition right away. You will need to do this instead:

COpy all data of sd-card to computer or any other storage media.
Change your sd-card with 8 GB. or, [Partition your sd-card]
Again Copy all your data back to your new sd-card from your pc.

OR, you can mount both new and old sd-card to your pc with the help of card reader. Then copy data from old sdcard to new one. Now you can use new one that also has same data.

You can do either way...
The main thing is to copy all data from old to new one. And it doesn't matter how you do that.

You might connect one with usb storage, another with card reader and then copy from and to another. (Since FLash disk are slower, this method will cost you a huge time.)
Or,
connect old one with pc, copy its contents/data to pc and then connect new one and copy all data from pc.

Good Luck!!! (I will also need to change my memory card, 4 GB is not enough after partitioning,)

It seems to have flashed correctly... Did you reboot your device to recovery and saw any changes. make sure you connect your phone in download mode and then load the recovery in One package field and flash.

The same backup adn restore is the nadndroid backup every one talks about. it didn't do anything because CWM recovery can't backup stock roms (system being rfs partiton). It is mostly for custom roms that are ext based. It works fine on all custom rom.
