    Well this one doesn't involve flashign anything. Its just sending commands to files within the rom, so flashing a rom and formatting SD card is all thats needed to undo / recover.

    Well in THAT case.... ;)

    Although a Class 2 card is going to make the whole thing a bit pointless, eh?

    Class 6 - Go for it
    Class 4 - Remove "sync," from 01data then go for it
    Class 2 - Wait until Christmas

    its annoying me that i cant try this yet.
    my current class 6 is performing like a class 12 at the moment and its 8gig, however its nearly full with just a 512 partition.

    i need a 16gig

    Guys..Take a look..This is my Class 2 16Gb Kingston..

    [​IMG]

    EDIT: I got a lot of force closes with the Kingston 16Gb..
    I take back what I said..Class 2 does seem error prone.


    And one more thing..
    Data2SD is not more dangerous than rooting your Rom/S-OFF..In fact it is less dangerous than either, even though I pasted a sinister note of caution. ;)

    It's just like flashing a rom. And as Dan said, if something goes wrong, we can reverse by the same process we follow in case of corrupt Roms-Wipe data and Restore from Nandroid. Only in this case, we might need to format the partition which holds the ext.

    On an aside..I had a bootloop when I tried to install on a card which already held some data in the 1st FAT32 partn. If you format both FAT32 to start with, it works superbly..

    EDIT: It was working for some time, and then suddenly out of the blue, I got a lot of force closes on reboot.

    The difference is that this Quadrant score is after I removed both Sync-On and Swap..

    So in short, even a Class 2 card seems quite usable..It cant be just my card. I've stress-tested it and its actual speed is indeed around 2Mps or less.

    i wouldnt say its even that dangerous
    tbh its no more dangerous than a2sd+ its just that because its in its infancy you have to go the hard root to do it

    EDIT for DAN:

    hes getting 1828 and i think thats first pass and his cpu is not overclocked by the looks of things.

    Thats "Vork kernel" for AOSP roms, clocked at 998Mhz.

    Not the latest version, but the version before. Latest version is slower IMHO.

    Hmm..I would need one for Rosie..

    Started getting a couple of Lags and Reboots..After Setcpu..Doesnt Sense as such support Setcpu?

    Not sure whether it is the Class 2 card or the Overclocking..

    What are speed are you clocked at? Does it reboot when screen on or off?

    Lags could be class 2. reboots, probably clock.

    I just set it to performance mode with the max at 998 Mhz. It hung at calls, and rebooted when I tried to go to the home screen at the lag.
