    I switched from Fresh 2.0d To DamageControl 2.0.7 today. Wiped the phone, Dalvik and ext beforehand. My question is this:

    I was using apps2sd with the last ROM, and I want to use it now. Does it automatically kick in when switching ROMs? If not, what do I need to do? I am absolutely stupid today and did not do a Titanium or nandroid backup before wiping, if that makes a difference.

    One other question: How do I see all of the apps I've downloaded from the Market? Only 1/16 are showing, if that.

    if the ROM supports apps2sd, then as long as the card is formatted properly (which it is if you've used it before), then it should automatically kick in on any new ROM that supports it. However, you will have to download all the apps again if you didn't ba ck them up

    well, after wiping, only your paid apps and apps you've already downloaded will show up, free apps won't show up until you re-download them. Even if you restore them using titanium backup or a similar program, the free ones won't show up in the downloads section of the market, until you re-download them. At least, that's how it always worked for me, and I'm not entirely positive on paid apps as I don't have any paid apps (WAY too poor and cheap for that lol)

    Seems to me that when I installed Fresh, I was able to see all of my market downloads from the past, but not now. Ah well. Live and learn! Thanks a ton.

    So question, If i wanna switch ROMs, what do I have to wipe before i flash the ROM? I think I wanna make the switch also, just to try it out.
