let me know. i have it installed and working. 120MB of free internal memory
What kind of sd card do you need to get this working at its full potential
im using the stock class 2 SDHC 8GB
the higher the class the better, but the stock one will work.
Well in that case I'll like to try it out. So what do I do first
back up your apps using astro or whatever program you use.
copy your SD card onto your computer and then delete everything off of it.
download this file and make sure its the only thing on your sd card
boot into recovery mode (volume up+power)
select partition SD card
select partition SD card again and wait for it to finish
choose ext 2 to ext 3 and wait for it to finish
hit volume down to take you back to the main menu
choose toggle usb
download and place this file in your sd card
disable usb toggle and use volume down to return to the menu
chooseflash from zip and choose the file that you left on the sd card
let that load and return to the main menu with volume down
select enable usb
open up your terminal program on your comupter
go to your sdk tools directory
run "adb shell"
run "/system/bin/a2sd install"
now your good
if your using a mac you will need to type "./" in front of the commands
do not type the "" for any of the commands.
do not type "run" in front of the commands either, just what is inside of the quotes
Awe man i was afraid you would say something with the computer. I won't have computer access for a couple of days.sorry for the bother.
well if you dont mind losing everything on your sd card, pictures etc, you can use a terminal emulator on your phone to run the commands.
Haha I'll wait
haha good idea.
i understand the point of free internal memory, but does this make the phone run any faster? i would think not since it has to pull it from the sd card and not internal.
makes it run much faster though. you know how much faster your phone runs after you clear the cache or kill a few apps? well that only frees up about 90 mb total. im running at 120mb of free internal memory
thanks for the info. downloading now.
i am having a problem. file was only thing left on sd card. booted into recovery. went to partition sd card, then partition sd card, confirmed with trackball, wants me to set swap size.. 32mb, wants me to set ext2 size..512mb, confirm to continue partitioning, then it partitions. waiting.... choosing SD ext2 to ext3, confirmed, upgrading ext2 to ext3, waiting... Ext upgrade complete. vol down to main menu, no option to apply sd card update.
and after your first reboot, dont worry if it takes a long time to start up. it can take upwards of 10 minutes. the phone has to search and link a bunch of shit. dont really understand all the specifics, but its normal
my bad. put the steps out of prder. when you partition the sd card it wipes it. just put it back on the sd card and start from the install from sd card step.
so i just reboot?
what swap-size do i use when partitioning the sd card?
tried again. get no option to apply sd card update. tried to flash zip from sd card. got no zip file found error
after following all the steps, yes. the "reboot" command will restart your phone for you
and set them all to the default that pops up
you have gmail chat or something i can talk to you on?
yes. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
anyone feel free to email or chat @ me.
Haven't looked into apps2SD too much but does this allow you to run apps when you flash new ROMs without having to install them again? The free space is nice but another plus is not having to reinstall apps. If you have to go thru this mess with each rom them forget it.

After this is done, do the new apps that are downloaded "know" to install on the SD card?
I don't have an "apply sdcard update." Should I select flash zip from sdcard?
