    I hope this is my last question for awhile. I'm ready to take the plunge and go apps to sd. I've done searches and seen that I need to partition my sd and am downloading ubuntu to be ready for that. (As I understand, ubuntu is a good tool to use for partitioning)

    When I partition, am I going to lose everything off the SD card?

    Should I save the contents of the sd card into a file on the computer and just reload after the partition?

    Ugh...I have seen about 3-4 different websites with different ways to go app to sd. Do any of these apply to Devolios 1.5 build, and to make a long story short, what the how the heck do I do it.

    yeah and just a word to the wise if you end up with anything less than class 6 don't move your cache as it can causing issues at slow speeds.......

    I agree with NoOneHereYet ... as I have some issues that may be related to my current SdCard which is a class 4 :(

    Ugh...No one in town carries class 6. I picked up an 8 gb class 4.

    Some notes to myself:

    Use the link provided.

    With class 4 sd, do not move cache.

    ok...this might sound really stupid, but what happened to all my apps? They are no longer accessible? If they are, how do I access them?

    Stooopid question time. How can you tell the class of your card? Other than the package, since I've had my card for months and have no idea what the package might have said...
