    After installing a few ROMs, apps are no longer installing on my ext-3 partition, how can I check if it's still working?

    See attached screenshot, that's what I get, but my internal memory is very small.
    I checked in root explorer and my apps appear in sd-ext\apps, but also in data\apps is that normal?

    Can't see screenshot but data app is symlinked to ext app so they contain the same

    its normal to see apps in data/app and sd-ext/app

    however your usage doesnt look right

    please go to settings>applications>manage applications> on Sdcard

    do you see anything there?

    iif you do then thats your problem, move them all to phone and reboot
    youll find youll have more space

    Just Aldiko and Root checker :/
    I can also confirm that I had around 109 MB free before I installed this new ROM (MIUI 1.1.28).

    you could try titanium backup > wipe > Titanium restore.

    you mention installing new rom!

    ok what rom did you come from?
    when upgrading did you clear cache and dalvic before installing the latest rom?
    have you run a2sd cachesd?

    If you have Dark termore apps2sd, download terminal emulator from market

    Type SU and press enter
    Type a2sd cachesd and press enter.

    No idea. Try it. If it doesn't recognise the command, you haven't got.it

    No. You dont reinstall anything. The command was supposed to be "A2sd cachesd" but you didn't type that, you just typed "a2sd" (no idea why) without the command after it, so its showing you what commands you could have put.

    Anyway, you hit a problem before that. Did terminal emulator prompt for Root access? When you type SU in the emulator, you are trying to get Super User access (same as root) but you got permission denied.

    What does it say in your superuser app next to Terminal emulator? Maybe you need to clear cache and data on the superuser app, if it is not working properly.

    Didn't see the "cachesd" :eek:
    First, I typed SU (upper case letters), and got denied without asking for permission, then I typed su (lower case) and Superuser asked and I accepted.

    I reread your post ( :eek: ) and typed a2sd cachesd and a bunch of text showed up and my phone rebooted.

    EDIT:
    I now have 105 MB free internal memory!
    All thanks to you guys.
    Seriously, you guys are my heroes, I can't imagine how I can thank you enough :D
