    I see this term alot and usually just brushed it off until I saw something about saving a boatload of internal memory soooooo can someone point me to a post or something or just give me a quick rundown (in laymens terms) of what it means .


    If i flash a rom and do this does that mean the rom is running off the sd?? how am i saving memory.

    quick run down

    1)roms are stored on your sdcard
    2)you flash the rom to your internal flash memory
    3)yes you can run android off a sdcard, but currently not our phones.
    4)partition is a designated space containing a filesystem(usually)
    5)a filesystem is a way of storing files

    so you can format(partition) your sdcard to contain two partitions, one with a ext3 file system and one with fat32 file system for the "sdcard" that you will see.

    your phone can then mount the ext3 partition as an extended apps folder. :)
