    Read the first post on kouma's thread. Instructions for setting it on kk2.2 are there.

    No offense to thomas above, but you want this instead...

    Here's the link to Kouma's thread. You need to read this:

    [Kernel][GB] KoumaKernel 2.2

    The procedure I used for my phone to move all of /data to the SD card:

    • BACK UP YOUR PHONE (e.g., using ClockWorkMod)
    • Formatted my SD card with GParted live CD to have a 2 GB ext4 partition.
    • Installed CTMod 3.3
    • Downloaded Root Explorer (since I already own a copy) to modify the file residing at /system/koumamod. This is a for-pay file explorer but you can find others that are free. Make sure this line: setprop koumakernelmount "SSM" has a hash # in front of it. Make sure this line: setprop koumakernelmount "data" does not have a hash in front of it. Make sure you set the file system to read-write in the file browser, modify the file, then set it back to read-only.
    • Reboot.
    • Check your storage in Settings.
    • Frighten your wife with your involuntary Daffy Duck impression.

    After I calmed down, I used GParted to repartition the ext4 partition to be 3 GB JUST BECAUSE

    Behold, a dark miracle...

    Nice instructions. But there is a script called sdparted that can be used by connecting to the phone with ADB while it's booted into CWM recovery that lets you partition and unpartition the sdcard too (though it is always destructive). I add this info because ADB is a quicker download than a liveCD :)

    Yep. But I wanted to keep my fat partition intact, I just got a sexy 19-in-1 card reader that I wanted to test and I had the live CD within reach so I took the path of least resistance (for me).

    Thanks again, Kouma. You really do make dreams come true (any suggestions for lottery numbers? PM me with these so I don't have to split my winnings).

    If you create and format an ext partition using CWM what kind of partition is going to be? Is it ext4? Does it matter?

    No, do not type that into recovery. that's for after you have set up the partition.

    1) Boot into Recovery
    2) ADB shell into the phone
    3) Run "sdparted -i"
    4) Pick a size for a swap partition (CWM doesn't give you many size options, most are probably too small)
    5) Pick a size for your EXT partition. Let the fat partiton have the rest.

    Do that part in recovery

    Caeadas is correct. Be sure to go to the first post int eh KoumaKernel Thread Here:

    and get the formatting utility for the sd-ext so that it makes the partitions ext4

    Edit: Here, so you don't have to hunt too hard for it:

    GParted (what I used) allows you to specify a file system type. I don't use CWM to partition, so I'm not sure what options are available.

    sdparted -po reports the partition I created using CWM as ext4 if anyone else is wondering.
