    This is the recovery screen for clockwork mod. What do you want to do next?

    I'd recommend backup, take a nandroid backup then reboot.

    You use the trackball to select. (throws many noobs out)

    Will give that a try, is it normal for the new memory to say Unavailable as in zero memory on sd card


    edited to say that I have just started the back up ant it now says I have loads of memory although its still loading. My god this is stressful

    this isnt what rooting does, forcing apps can be done without root
    a2sd+ requires partitions

    im afraid your confusion on what to do is because you have not read our guides thoroughly and rushed into it

    im not being horrible by saying this but its very important you read them as it will answer nearly all of you questions

    Infact this is why they were created. Especially due to people thinking it moves apps to SD card.

    Rushed into it? if planning it for the past 3 months is rushing then guilty as charged. I followed the instructions to the letter and only at the very final stage did I encounter a problem. O'h well guess its not going to be any use for me.

    it will be, but if you waited 3 months and researched it you would/should have read our guides which explains what rooting does and what the differences between a2sd, froyo apps 2 sd and gingerbread apps 2 sd.

    the rooted solution is far better however its not as simple as just rooting, you have to create an ext partition as per our guides using gparted and then flashing a rom that supports an a2sd+ solution

    its all clearly documented

    dont be annoyed that we expect you to read the guides, weve spent alot of time tweaking them and SUroot is constantly updating them with the latest and most accurate information we find over time to make sure you get the best advise

    the point of these guides are to get you to understand what you are doing, if you dont understand what you are doing then problems become apparent and you wont know how youve caused them.

    :D hi guys.

    must admit i did some reading before i took the leap, but still forgot to do the
    gparted bit! doh! silly me :) but miui xj still good and space not too low. approx 30mb left internal. it was the gparted bit the confused me most before, so must have blocked it from my mind :D

    so sounds like the OP is in similar place to me. just need to do gparted and then push the apps to sd, id they dont auto move. think there is a script to force em

    cheers
    dan

    when you install apps they auto install to ext, it looks like internal memory. with miui it generally needs to be set up right before you put the apps on not after

    Cheers for the replies guys, I wasn't being stressy just that I may have bitten off more than I can chew. My desire is definitely rooted successfully so obviously need to investigate more to get it up to its optimum level whatever that is
