So I rooted my phone last night for the first time using FA19 Gingerbread Rooted Image with CWM5 by Koumajutsu and hroark13. Then I got my phone all setup, and as I was reading further into it, I decided I wanted to use A2SD. This was the one that seemed most highly recommended, and I went ahead and attempted to install it. Problem is, when I try to move stuff onto the SD card, it seems like it's going to move, but then everything goes back the way it was, and nothing is moved. I'm wondering if the root version I'm using is compatible with Darktremor's A2SD, or if I needed to take more steps.

Because I had just finished up rooting my phone, and gotten things setup as I liked, I was hoping to avoid starting ALL over again just to get A2SD working. For reference, I quoted the exact, and only steps I took during this process on my phone that was already rooted with what I listed above. So, did I do something wrong, or is there more to it in order to actually get this working?

Quote:
Install With CWM
1. Back up your entire sd card contents to a folder on your computer.
2. Place downloaded .zip on SD card
3. Turn off phone
4. Boot into recovery (hold vol up + power)

NOW'S A GOOD TIME TO MAKE ANOTHER BACKUP. OK, Let's Continue.

4. Select - Mounts and Storage > mount /system then mount /data. When done, press power button to return to main menu.
5. Select - Install zip from sdcard > Choose zip from sdcard > dt_a2sd_prevail.zip. When that finishes, press power button to return to main menu.
6. Select - Advanced > Partiton sd card > ext size (any) > swap size (0M). When finished, press power button to return to main menu.
7. Select - Reboot system now

First boot may take a few minutes while apps are moved.
To see if it worked check the a2sdGUI now in your app drawer
or open a terminal or adb shell with root privileges and type
Code:
a2sd check
You should get a status dialogue.
Thanks!

PS. I searched and searched, and after 2 hours of reading, I gave up, registered, and am posting this now.

If that will work, which version should I go with and do I just flash it over the existing kernel or do I have to go thru a complete wipe of the phone? Thanks
you should check the koumakernel thread. he keeps a changelog and all previous versions in the OP.

you don't need to "move" any apps once you flash this. they are all installed to your sdext automatically and immediately once you open the a2sdGUI and set "apps are on sd".

you can also "move and rebuild" dalvik-cache to sd to get the most internal storage savings possible with this method. again, moving apps with the Manage Applications menu or with Titanium Backup is unnecessary and redundant.

Looking through the instructions for the KoumaKernel 2.3, I would just need to run that installation on top of my already installed rooted Odin FA19 with CWM using the recovery panel, and THEN install the ROM you listed in that thread?

Or I'm wrong, and I need to re-root with the HalfAssRom and then install the KoumaKernel 2.3 using the recovery panel? Just hoping for some clarity. I'm sure once I do these things a bit more it will become much easier. I would like to root my wife's phone, but would prefer to get mine sorted first.

Thanks!

Will this wipe my current settings? Should I do a Titanium backup? I've already got the important stuff backed up on my SD card, as well as my calendar and contacts synced to my Gmail account. The apps, I'm not so concerned with since I can just download them again anyways, and I only have a few installed right now while I wait to get this sorted out.

Yes, flashing roms will wipe current settings. Its usually better to install apps fresh when updating roms, but restoring the apks with TB is usually okay. Restoring system data with titanium backup can cause issues.

And if you are using a Koumakernel-based apps to SD setup, formatting and/or partitioning will wipe the SD card, so back it up to your computer.

Ok. Well, I'm going to wait to get a larger SD card, because once I factor in music and photos, my 2GB card will be cutting it close. Not to mention not knowing what class of card it is.

Thanks for the help. I'll update when I get this done.

EDIT: I found a real cheap 8GB MicroSD card on Newegg. Only $3.99 after rebate. Thought I would share it with you guys. Rebate is only good until April 2, 2012. If it turns out to be a dud, I won't be too bent out of shape over only $4.

I found a Patriot class 10 16gb card on the same site . Bought it for 19.99 and got 10.00 rebate . It might not be the best in the world but by golly I'm happy with it .I'm getting 8-9 on write speeds 19-22 on read which is darn good . I'll probably end up getting a Sandisk class 10 16gb card when I get my new phone but this 1 works fine for now .

Default that's all folks.

put the final version of the app in to avoid the update notification. the developer of the app has stopped work on it.

it's still getting downloads so i'll leave it up but it most likely won't get updated again unless i figure out how to enable the app-data relocation option. moving on.

Nice work all around. I know this mod is sorta a thing of the past with kouma and the ssm but honestly I think every member here has ran A2SD at one time during their adventures with the prevail. I actually still have the zip on my SD card and on occasion I still use this when I revert to my CT 2 point versions. I love this app and I truly appreciate all you have done with it for our wonderful little engine that could (prevail) hats off to you and your work for all of us!!

Hmmm!
I see this thread has been updated?
What has changed with dark tremors apps to sd?
Hopefully it now supports cm 7 Because it's hard to know if s2e is doing the job.
Anyone?

Default error in CWM when running the a2sd zip

I am running the CM9 KANG 3.5 alpha only because I could not get A2SD to run in CM7 either.
I have a 2gb and 8gb sdcards from 2 diff makers and have used the 8gb before in a tablet. I have formatted both to EXT4 inside CWM and in Minitool Partition Wizard. When I install CM9 I get no errors in the process.
The rom itself works fine. The App2sd gui inside it does not let me move anything to the sdcard and my internal memory has on 81 of 160mb left.


I thought I woiuld possibly get it to work by downloading the zip and installing that way. But, that brings me full circle to the reason I put the Alpha on.
I have downloaded the dt_a2sd_prevail.zip file I don't know how many times and from as many locations as I can including the link on the top of this thread. I get an error: Mount Partition: SYSTEM mount() expects 3 args, got 4 E:Error in /sdcard/dt_as2sd_preva (Status 7)
Installation aborted.

Any help would be appreciated. I spent few hours working with understanding the roms and the rest of the weekend working on getting A2SD working. I have flashed tablets several times but this is my first phone.

The gui in CM9 goes back to apps on internal storage when I try to move to the external and I cannot move Dalvik either to external

Also, and tell me if I should post this in the CM9 thread, does anyone know if the EJ06 changes after flashing CM9 because mine is still on EJ06. I saw a comment in that thread that made me believe it changes.



Thanks guys

Install the cm9. Partition your card in cwm. Reboot. Try the a2sd app and let me know what happens.

I have to say that enabling swap on this rom is kinda cool. I gotta say my phone doesnt lagg in high cpu performance setting even though i have multiple apps running. Might wanna try it! Swapper formated the ext made a new one and enabled it... Something in the a2sd app does not work, or most likely , my noobness.. I would really like for you guys to try my little tweaked out cm9.. Its like it gives the phone a tune up... If anybody would like to try lemme know. Happy deving !

Thanks for replying. I have done that a few times now and after formatting the SD creating the partition.
Funny thing is I installed apps2sd free from the market and it moves some applications that can be moved to my sd.
I have flashed CM9 after doing all wipes and same results. The sd is 8gb and I have 1gb for the ext4 partition. I can see the ext4 in Minitools and like I said I can move apps with apps2sd free so my partition is good.

you don't need any other software to accomplish this. just use clockworkmod to create the partitions (1024 and 128 are suggested for cm9) and immediately boot into cm9. once booted, open the app and select 'apps on sd' and then 'move and rebuild' the dalvik allowing the phone to reboot. apps2sd from the market doesn't use the ext4 partition. it makes a folder on your vfat partition and puts parts in there.

the zip installer for dt_a2sd is broken, thanks for letting me know. i'll get it fixed.

enabling swap and changing swappiness will work straight away on cm9 without any additional apps as long as your partitions are correct. i tried to make sure all the buttons worked as intended before sending it out.

also, post your tweaked version. this is your second invitation to do so.

I just meant I even tried formatting the entire sd before creating the partition in CWM.

Ok, the installer is broken, I was hoping I was not doing something stupid with the dt_a2sd lol

But, if I am understanding everything the CM9 install should do an automatic creation of what dt_a2sd does, is that correct?
I was just trying to run it manually so I could see if it worked by itself.

Thanks for explaining the vfat partition I did not realize it worked that way.

NOW I did just as you said booted to CWM, created partition, size 1024 swap 128, rebooted to CM9, opened the app and it said apps were on internal, I clicked it and it brought up working message and went back to apps on internal, i clicked Dalvik and it said on internal, i clicked move and rebuild, it rebooted, then said Android is upgrading I think it said 61 apps, I then went into the app again, it still said on apps on internal and so does Dalvik. I went to setup and storage and it still says internal storage total space is 160mb apps 46.44 available 88.65 mb. This is what I always get

Any more idea? I hope LOL
Thanks for your time

I was just trying to run it manually so I could see if it worked by itself.

Thanks for explaining the vfat partition I did not realize it worked that way.

NOW I did just as you said booted to CWM, created partition, size 1024 swap 128, rebooted to CM9, opened the app and it said apps were on internal, I clicked it and it brought up working message and went back to apps on internal, i clicked Dalvik and it said on internal, i clicked move and rebuild, it rebooted, then said Android is upgrading I think it said 61 apps, I then went into the app again, it still said on apps on internal and so does Dalvik. I went to setup and storage and it still says internal storage total space is 160mb apps 46.44 available 88.65 mb. This is what I always get

Any more idea? I hope LOL
Thanks for your time
type mount in the terminal app and see if mmcblk0p2 shows up anywhere.
and/or
type a2sd check in the terminal app and let me know if there are any errors.
and/or
type df in the terminal app and post the response

sure.

adb pull /system c:/path-to-save

copy over folders in cm9 zip. rename. post.
i thought you said you only changed services.jar. you could simply post your changed files and testers could replace them manually if that's easier for you. be sure to post it to the cm9 thread where this discussion belongs. thanks.

do you get the same result with the other sd card?

from here i would delete the cm9 zip. download it fresh and try flashing again. seems the mount script isn't working properly for whatever reason. possibly a corrupt download.

Ok thank you. The 2gb seems to be able to use A2SD now after following your original instructions on partitioning. I had tried so many There must be a problem with the 8gb card. A2SD now states apps are on the sd, i moved and rebuilt the Dalvik but when it booted it still said it was on internal. I moved it and when it rebooted it said it was on the SD. The problem is I partitioned the card at 1024 with 128 swap. When I check the storage it still says there is only 160mb internal storage size but now only about 5.6mb are used. So although things appear for the most part to be ok the size did not increase from the true internal memory. If you have any other ideas I will try them to get it to recognize the full 1gb. In the meantime I will tinker with it more and if I find anything I will let you know.

Do you know when the dt_a2sd zip is ready? I would like to try it and possibly go to the CTMOD till CM9 is in beta I just wanted to get a look at the future.

Thank you sooo much for your help and your time.

the internal will report incorrectly since the phone believes the apps are on the internal storage, not the sd. use terminal command df to see the actual usage.

ctmod comes with koumakernel/koumamod which does basically the same thing as these scripts. the setup is slightly different, however, and there are more steps involved to move the dalvik-cache. clear instructions for that setup and all of its variables can be found in that thread.

glad you got it sorted out, though.

edit: installer in OP works again

Thank you
i actually had same problem as @Mr.Push with Permission denied
and there was an easy fix for it..
the very first time i typed su in terminal it asked for root Permissions,once i confirmed i typed a2sd reinstall and suddenly all was working..

but now hm ...after it finished phone rebooted it self following with a lot of "terminate" aplication errors,and now all of those app's are missing from phone :S


OK..
i installed a2sd gui,and checked first option,apps are on SD
it rebooted phone,and now most of apps are back,some widgets didn't..

AND my memory usage is still high as it was before all this?
..now i even did "you can also "move and rebuild" dalvik-cache to ext "

meh Go launcher ex does not like this procedure its crashing/restarting it self when ever i try to open something

launchers, in my opinion, should always be in system otherwise you may run into the trouble you have run into.

what rom are you using? how did you partition your card?

i was testing on "Fresh Zodiac Fruit v5-2 by Cedric" that's 2.1 update 2 rom
i did clean format of sd via clockwork <recovery_CWM_5.0.2.3_u8120> (SD 8gb kingston just bought today) :P

this port of darktremor a2sd is modified for the samsung prevail. you may have better luck with the original version at xda. your mount points probably differ from this device.

good luck.

Default a2sdGUI not showing up

I followed the instructions that were given in the first post and it just isn't working. a2sdGUI app is not showing up in the app drawer. I am using honeymod6 rom. I don't know why it isn't working for me.

I might add that it worked the first time I flashed this zip unintenionally skipping the step that has to do with partitioning the sd card via CWM. When I noticed I skipped this step I went back and partitioned the sd card and that's when the app disappeared along with all my back ups and everything.

As far as I know there is no version of Paranoid Android for the Prevail. What device are you running?

First problem is that A2sd is not needed with HoneyBread6 and no where in the directions does it say to use a2sd. In fact, it say that the kernel has INTEGRATED A2SD
.

Quote:
ROM Includes:
System, Cache, Data are formatted to Ext4
Deodex'd
Zipaligned
Root
Genocide 2.6.35.14 Kernel w/ Hroarks intergrated a2sd
Carrier IQ removed
Notification Widgets
Reboot Options
ICS Window Animations
Themed Swype Keyboard
Themed Some Of The Widgets
Sprint-HiddenMenu
Mounting SD-ext
Download Crutch
adb enabled on boot
Data Throttle Removed
Notitifcation transparency enabled
360 Launcher(english translate) provided by: melvinchng @ xda-developers w/ custom 187MoD ICS Theme by The-Skater-187
Boost Mobile text removed from lockscreen/notification
RAM Optimization script (by Juwe11)
A Few Other Performance Tweaks & Scripts Found at:
[TWEAKS][SCRIPTS] Collection of 'em all - build.prop; init.d; etc. - xda-developers

(Do Not Update Launcher! If you do it will go back to the Market Version, which is not in English)

187MoD-HoneyBread6:
-updated to 2.3.7/w some 2.3.6 & 2.3.5 parts
-Sprint HiddenMenu (working)
-Added Genocide-OverClock-Kernel w/ integrated a2sd
-Added Voltage Control
-Cleaned build.prop
-Removed a couple init.d scripts(caused kernel issues)
-SdCache set to 2048(better results with data2sd OC kernel)
-Updated Adreno Drivers
-New Boot Animation (
This one fits better with the theme)
-New Lockscreen Clock Font
-Changed System Font
-Included Some Of J6's theme
-Fixed some theme issues

Just wanna say thanks to Shabby, Bloodawn, Koumajutsu, Trenchkato, Transitoyspace, and Hroark13. Without your guys developments, time, and help, this Rom would not have been possible.

Also, I want to thank Android Forums for all the helpful threads and people.
I would also like to thank XDA-Developers, The Developers Of Ultimate, APKTool, Dsixda's Kitchen & Of Course Google.


To Install 187MoD-HoneyBread:
-Download your choice of HoneyBread to the root directory of your sdcard.
-Reboot into Recovery, Go to -Advanced>Wipe Dalvik Cache>yes
-Let the install script run.
-Once it has finished, reboot phone.
-ENJOY

Second problem is that when you partitioned you sdcard it formats the ENTIRE card. Therefore all data that is on the card is erased. Meaning that all of your apps, backups, pics, music, whatever else is long gone. Whenever partitioning a sdcard, back it up to your PC FIRST!
Then fully read the directions and if you still have questions ask.

Hi and welcome to the forums. This version of dta2sd has been modified to work with the Samsung galaxy prevail.(And is actually obsolete, since most of the Prevail's roms include a built in solution to low memory) It will likely cause problems on other devices. Which device are you using? I would be more than happy to point you towards the section for phone
