    Hello,
    With all the recent CM7 roms, I have noticed that when installing something it gives me the option to install to sd card. Do i even need to go through the hassle with link2sd? With link2sd I always have to format the ENTIRE sd card every time i try a new/updated ROM. It makes switching an all-night process. I am using titiamum backup to backup my apps.

    Link2sd lets you move more of the apps data to sd, as well as move apps that you normally couldn't move to sd.

    And with titanium backup, just use the batch restore all missing apps... If you do that after you install and set up link2sd it will also link all the apps too (if you set up autolink).

    No need to format every time with link2sd. When you want to flash a new Rom, boot into recovery and remove ur sd card before wiping data. When data wipe is complete, re insert ur sd card, do all ur other wipes then flash ur Rom, you won't have any problems. Your apps will still be linked.
