    Hi, I have a pretty ordinary g1. Htc dream, unlocked (ATT is my provider). Well, I installed cyanogenmod a few weeks ago and it worked out great. I also did the 10 MB RAM hack.

    Then I got greedy. I thought I'd partition the sd card and cyanogenmod would start installing apps to the sd card. This turned out to be a disaster. Probably I didn't do it right.

    Everything was fine for a few days, seemed faster, etc., until I installed a new app. It was the first app installation since partitioning. Suddenly, there were problems with ALL my apps. I then thought, well uninstall app x that you just installed, but alas, I couldn't, as it wasn't listed as installed.

    The phone would even spontaneously shut down from opening an app. In short, the phone became very scary and very unusable. After spontaneously shutting down, it would reboot into a frozen state, etc.

    So I reformmated the sdcard, and redid cyanogenmod. I thought that this would simply undo the partitioning that I'd done, and I'd be back to where I was with a pretty good g1.

    Well, cyanogenmod went okay, but there were still lots of problems. So I did a factory reset, and cyanogenmod again. This was slightly better, but it's still touch and go with my g1 now.

    Home process needs force close, reddit is fun will sometimes not work. Sipdroid, even Android market, when I click it, does nothing. Sometimes when I plug the phone in with a USB cable, I mount it from the phone and it will suddenly unmount itself. Wont stay mounted.

    Each of these problems will go away with rebooting, but now I've rebooted my phone maybe 30 times in the past two days. Not to mention uninstalling, reinstalling apps and rekeying in usernames and passwords, etc.

    The biggest thing is that I would like to understand how the phone works.
    I'm attaching two logcats. Can anyone help?

    Ok, well, when you format an sd card it just formats the primary partition, it doesn't erase all the partitions. Seems like I should know that. If you need to remove a partition, use this

    Only don't create the partitions at the end...

    After removing the partition, reformatting, re-cyanogenmodding, everything seems ok.
