    OK so I have rooted, backed up data (MyBackup Pro) and Apps (AppMonster), made a backup in ROM Manager, updated the radio and installed LeeDroid 1.9a

    I restored all my data, then began restoring my apps. (Is there a better option other than AppMonster? You have to install each app separately.. I thought there would be a batch option)

    So while restoring my apps internal memory told me it was low. Time for A2SD+ ... I read it was bulit into LeeDroid 1.9a. Had a look through the apps and settings, couldn't see it. The LeeDroid thread said this:

    Partitioning your SD Card ready for A2SD+
    • Backup all data on you SD card (this will be wiped)
    • The card should be formatted with your standard FAT32 partition 1st followed by an EXT3 partition (I would reccoment 512mb)
    • Please note : EXT4 is not supported by the Stock Froyo Kernel and EXT2 Does not perform as well as EXT3
    • Linux users use GParted or a similar software.
    • For everyone else I would reccomend using Rom Manager
    • Once you have downloaded rom manager from the market, open the app and click partition SD Card, Select your EXT size and set 0mb for swap
    • Restore your data to your SD and the job is done.

    FrOyO A2SD
    • Moves apps to your Fat32 partition (SD)
    • No EXT3 is required
    • You Must use the "Mod Install Location" app (included) to change you default install location.

    Pushing with ADB (this assumes you are farmiliar with the tools available in the android SDK

    To push an app to you /system partition you need to reboot your device into recovery, connect via USB and open a CMD prompt from your SDK tools folder and enter the following commands

    adb shell mount /system

    adb push "name.apk" /system/app/

    adb reboot




    I assume the ADB instructions are for A2SD+ ?? I don't know... but if they are I don't kow how to do that. I searched the forums on how to use A2SD+ and couldn't find any information.

    Is there a tutorial for this?

    I feel like just restoring my old Nandroid backup from when the phone was just rooted with no custom ROM.

    OK in the process of restoring to when I first rooted the phone... going to flash LeeDroid 2.0 ...

    I will use AppMonster to see the list of apps i owned.. and install them via Market...

    I had a read through the LeeDroid 1.9 thread (hard since it had over 1000 pages!!) but am I right to assume apps installed fresh from the market will install to sd (via a2sd+) automatically on ROMs that have a2sd+ built in?

    So gonna post this as I think it's a brilliant post describing APP2SD that maybe handy to you or other people here.
    I set up APP2SD+ with the following steps:

    Backed up SDcard (copied contents to computer)
    Open ROM manager on phone, create partition (chose 512MB then 0MB for swap)
    Copy SDcard contents back
    Rebooted phone (Think this reboot took a while as the phone see's the ext partition and then incorporates it)
    DeFroSt detected and used the ext partition on it's own, didn't have to do anything else.

    Titanium Back up is a great way to backup your apps before hand incase. As far as your phone will be concerned once the ext partition is done, that area on your sd card is part of your phone memory, so it will install apps to that as long as the ROM is compatible with APP2SD+.

    did you install the A2SD+ version of the rom? as there is 2 versions. Froyo A2SD or A2SD+

    you need to use the + one. Partition your card with ROM manager 512mb 0mb swap

    Then install your apps

    Hey...
    I just flashed leedroid 2.2f
    I am not sure if it is the best ROM out there....but, after reading its specifications....i decided it was best for me.
    Apps2sd+ works like a charm. Its amazing.... cz about a week ago i was a real rookie in subjects like rooting and flashing. Things have certainly become unbelieveably simpler..
    Leedroid certainly takes a little longer to boot...but i think it is worth it... just because u get a whole bunch of features along... much better than cyanogenmod anyway.
    Please let me know about your doubts about rooting or ROMs or Radios ... and i will try and help u out.....

    The Bunch of apps of which you speak are all available for download from the market for any MOD! I prefer Cyanogen for almost the exact reasons you hate it.

    I am sure you are right Completely hatstand... but when I installed sunken I coolant see the market app. I had also learned from other posts that you need to install the market app and bunch of other appt seperately. Also, I learned that cyanogen 6.0.2[which is their latest stable ROM] does not support apps2sd+. Again there was app separate version available to download that had apps2sd+ included... I grew app little tired....and decided to flash steroid instead. The only bad poiny I have heard of steroid till noisy that it takes app little longer to boot. Also it has both the sense us and the other that was present in cyanogen. You can choose whichever you wanna use.
    In already told used that I am app rookie and might not know which ROM is technically better. In would simply suggest leeroid to those who wish to add app few extra features to their stock ROM wuileretaining the functionality of the stock ROM.

    Cyanogen does support a2sd! It just isn't supplied with the signed .zip so that you, the person that owns the phone can choose whether or not you want it. The same goes for the Google pack where you'll find the market app, it just means the you don't HAVE to shop at google, if you prefer Java for instance. Dowloading Market Enabler will allow you to shop across platforms.

    My only advice to you as a noob myself is; read, learn, read some more, do as you feel. Its your Android.

    Hey thanks Completely hatstans
    I am looking forward to trying all sorts of ROMs .
    Its just i am such a noob that the idea of doing a little bit extra seemed a little difficult to me.
    Anyway, can anyone tell me what else can i use as a ROM.
    U know... i want everything integrated. I want a ROM that provides the largest no. of possibilities.

    LeeDroid is also available in 2 versions - with or without A2SD+

    I like LeeDroid because (a) my only reason to root was to add A2SD+ and LeeDroid is a really simple way to set it up, and (b) the ROM has been proved to worked very well with my existing radio from the Orange 2.2 OTA update.

    The only issue I'm having is that my Exchange ActiveSync work email account no longer syncs Contacts or Calender, and mail needs to be synced manually (Push doesn't work any more). If I can find a ROM that supports A2SD+ and has the same support for Exchange ActiveSync that my old Orange 2.2 ROM had, I'd be flashing again.

    Thye reason I flashed from Leedroid was because its a ROM that does everything for you. As you gain confidence with flashing, or like me you just enjoy playing with the naughty bits of your phone, (you are after all now a hacker, all be it your own phone) you'll want to do more for yourself.

    Id love to think of us as hackers but if only I had the knowledge and intelligence to actually hack the phones myself.

    I wish I could develop but that's beyond me too :(

    Hackers use software and hardware to by pass security systems. Ring any bells?

    sense roms or vanilla roms do not stop you doing that
    you can do this on sense or without.

    its all about personal preference, i hate that alot of people cloud the issue about things being more advanced in certain builts etc etc.
    its not, fact of the matter is that each persons benefit is another persons demise.
    Roms are all about choice however arguably leedroid is more stable that aurax.

    as for boot times, i dont boot my phone that much. i have no need to unless im doing something major to it.

    if you want more controll over things get s-off and start modifying stuff on the fly.

    sense/nonsense does not give any further controll

    Not really. True hackers write software and scripts to bypass security. Everyone else are script kids. Run pre existing solutions to achieve the same. Often created by the hackers who paved the way initially


    I'm certainly the latter
