    Hey there,

    I have just installed LeeDroid with the A2SD+ option, following the instructions prior to loading the rom I formatted the SD Card with a 512mb Ext3 partition and 0mb swap. Installed the ROM and have been pleasantly surprised how small the internal memory usage was (about 15mb on boot). I've then gone and installed a couple of apps and checked the Managed Applications and found that they all have move to SD card greyed out, even though I was able to move some of those apps to SD in my previous OpenDesire ROM. Is there any way of checking if A2SD+ is actually working?

    I loaded a few more apps and checked my internal phone usage thinking that maybe the apps are all ready over on the SD card, but found my internal memory going up after 4-5 new apps.

    Any help is appreciated

    I'm running LeeDroid too. If you want to do a comparison with mine, you could try installing the full version of Angry Birds. I think it's around 14Mb. When installed, it should go to SD and will be listed as taking up 1.84Mb of your phone memory. The "Move to phone" button won't be greyed out if A2SD+ is working. That's what mine is showing in Manage apps.

    Download quick system info. It will tell you if a2SD is working and how much memory is used

    the ext partition is symlinked so the phone sees it as being phone storage and not sdcard storage.
    you will have some apps install to sdcard still as you have froyo but the apps that dont will be handled by a2sd+

    Thanks for the great reply. I used the app and saw it was using some of that EXT3 partition....though just read Leedroid 2.2d has been released with some sort of fix for A2SD+
