    which version ROM are you using?
    you can partition the card in ROM Manager (Ext 3, 512mb, 0mb swap)
    Then on your main screen you will see MODInstall icon. If its set to auto then all apps will save on your partition

    Try doing things in this order
    1. backup everything
    2. Install ROM manager and format your SD card using it
    3. Flash the new ROM and radio if needed
    4. Start it all up again and restore your backup (you will need to download mybackup or thatever you used first)

    Basically if you make sure you have the partitioning correct before you install the rom it will all happen automatically. I didn't realise this and repeated the sequence above.

    When you do the backup, it is creating a snapshot of your phone status including your accounts, mail, etc. This gets stored on your SD card. You then copy the whole contents of the SD card to computer. Then ROM manager creates the a2sd partition and in doing so, will format your SD card. Then flash whatever ROM you need and once back up again, install the backup programme, copy all the SD contents across and restore your sytstem. I have found that Titanium pro is better at this than mybackup. Hope that helps

    Hi,

    I would like to know where in ROM Manager I can choose Ext3 in partitioning the SD Card? I can see where you can choose the file ext and swap files which basically comes up after choosing to partition.

    Hope you can clarify, thanks!

    easiest way to go with sdcard backups is just copy everything on the card to a folder in your computer called sdcard or something. Then just copy everything back exactly where it came from.
