    i would guess you need to partition your card again like the 4gb and then use a backup app to backup your current sd card with apps etc and then restore to the new card

    just backup apps like you would if you didnt have apps2sd. Partition the new card. Restore the old apps as usual.

    Not to rain on that, but I just found that sometimes, it's just easier to reinstall them individually. It's so much easier to do that than try to run it, find it force closes before it opens, uninstall it and reinstall it. Blah.

    You could always go to Cyrket and open each app in a new window. Then use Barcode Scanner and read the barcode to bring you straight to the app (rather than using the small keyboard to search).

    Lekky, can't you just copy the apps directly after the memory card has been partioned?

    Thats what I said isn't it :p You can't manually copy the apps because you don't have visibility of the ext partition. Anyway the way i said above is the easiest way. Backup > restore :p

    What if you did it under Linux or such?. Because quite frankly I don't have much faint in many of the backup programs if what people are saying in the various threads about rooting that most of the stuff is either not backed up or restored right >_<

    If you back up the apps, it will literally give you the apk's in a folder on your pc. so you can see that they are backed up. Then to restore them you install them all again.
