    Puts your entire /data partition.in sd card. It's a variation of data2sd which I use.

    Basically I have 1GB internal memory now

    They haven't yet increased the number of compatible roms. And I had stability issues with this even with the latest ver. I'm back to Sibere.

    I seem to have an issue with market updates, in that updates download and then never install themselves. Other than that its seems fine. I think the issue is the size of partition, 1024is recommended and anything above 2Gb has market issues. I'll try down sizing to 700Mb and ho what works.

    Unfortunately the complicated to do data2sd is still far superior to all its variations

    Just read this from droizone on Data to SD, and I have some silly questions to be answered. How do I check what class my card is? Even if I have a slow card wont the extra space be worth the effort? Or am I missing smething?

    Init.d couldn't find it in the tutorial, how do I know I've got it?

    More questions later, I'm in peacemeal mode.

    Well you have it if you don't have stock probably. Any apps2sd+ Rom is init.d

    Class should be stated on card.

    Data2sd, class 4 or below needs sync off but data integrity us,affected. Don't recommend for less than class 6. I had sync off. Any app that reboots phone you can't use
    As data can be lost.

    In an incomplete circle on the card I have the number 2, either that or my card is a class 166. :rolleyes:

    I think i'll stay with Data2Whatever and see how it pans as I'm happy with data speed. Now that I'm S-off I may try a few different kernels, because I can!

    Once again thank you Dan

    If you're not running out on internal memory, are there any advantages to this at all? (e.g. performance?)

    If you have a fast sd card, you will get better I/O performance

    And a slow card will give you slower performance. :)

    Yes. Sync off will make up for that but you increase risk of data loss massively

    I will never use Sync Off ever again! It crashed my rom on the very first reboot!

    By the way, did you try Sibere's new script? It works very well. thankfully, Nandroid backups are back to being normal sized! :D

    No I haven't. Whats the change? I already have it implemented so wouldn't want to have to start from scratch.

    Is it possible to just do a command or something to implement that? It still uses an ext2 loop device?
