    I just used easus partition manager to format my card to include a 2gb ext3 partition. my evo recognizes the new partition size of my main partition, and easus says it completed successfully and shows my new partition. how do I view if my phone will recognize it?

    Uh oh! CM7 isnt seeing my card at all now... after all seemed to have gone well, I tried flashing dt a2sd, got a bootloop. wiped data cache and dalvic, then reflashed cm7. Now it doesnt see the card at all. I can mount my card via cwm to see it on computer, and now easus shows it as a 'Super Floppy' Fat32 as the main partition and is missing my 2gb ext3 completely, and wont let me reformat to the full size of my card, uh oh...
