    Is there a way to do it? I partitioned my SD card when I had it on my Huawei Ascend. But I want to do it again, for this phone. The way I did it before, was on Rom Manager while on CM7. I tried to do it again, but the phone isn't listed on the Clock Work recovery, thing. Steps on how/what to do? I have a 4gb SD card, btw.

    It wont work. I actually tried it the other night so I could run DT's. It wont mount the SD Card and when it does a media scan when you first boot up it says "Damaged Sd Card"

    If you partition an ext to the sd card you can run DarkTremors app2sd. Unlike the stock one and ones on the market the scripts automatically moves all apps, even ones that arent "moveable" to the sd card. It tricks them all to thinking they are still on the phones memory. Also when you do run it and it moves your apps on boot, ALL your widgets are still available. If you move apps with the stock a2sd or ones from the market you will lose the ability to use alot of your widgets because they arent suppose to run off the sd card. Also you can put all your Dalvik cache to rrun off the sd card which in all means more space which theoretically means a faster phone. And you can also partition a Linux swap on the sd card and have a swap partition for the ram.

    I remember reading on the rev forum someone partitioned the internal then for some other reason unpartiotioned it which will clean the whole internal flash card, which left it a nice cold brick.
    So once you partition internal you never go back ;)
