    Hey All

    Just wanted some opinions, been on Data 2 EXT MIUI for ages. Bored of it and hated less than 1 day battery life so went S-Off (didn't change partitions) tried SENSE 3.0 Port.D2EXT based on RCMix. It is so laggy!

    I just want a fast Data 2 EXT (don't wanna go through re partitioning memory card again) with good battery life. I want to go to AOSP but there is no D2EXT option (not too interested in changing HBOOT because I want 1GB for my apps etc not just that little bit extra).

    Any suggestions? Willing to flash a ROM and then apply D2EXT script afterwards (again unsure which one).

    Thanks!

    the speed of your device if you are using data2 ext will largely depend on the speed of your card. What have you got in there?

    Data2ext generally is laggy from my experience.

    I used Leedroid for ages and fancied something new so I tried loads of the other roms including the data2sd ones. Like mentioined they are laggy and i have a class 6 card. To be honest, I think the sense 2.1/3.0 roms are probably too much for the desire to handle.

    I did want more space for apps and data so in the end I went for Oxygen ROM and used the R2 partition layout which gives 333Mb internal as well as your A2SD partition space so it's a happy medium for the storage and the speed is good. Most importantly the batter life is as good if not better than the leedroid roms and they were good.

    With the theme manager getting some good looks and some good widgets, it looks the business and performs very well.

    Its just Adam-G's Devnull Rom that some kid has run through the dsixda kitchen. If this is the rom you want, just get the proper one.

    No need to apologise. You weren't to know. It just annoys me when a developer creates a Rom

    Then a kid comes along, takes the developers Rom, runs it through a kitchen to add a few things, gets "recognized developer" status and takes donations for it.. yet still knows nothing about development. Dsixda kitchen is easy to use and anyone can do it. It's not fair to make profit from someone else's work like that

    Hmmm seems like a lot of effort to free some space! how come Data 2 EXT doesn't work as it's faster than the NAND? Seems like a logical step?!

    Might actually do this instead actually. Went back to MIUI D2EXT as Sense2.1 GB 2.3.3 with sense3.0 updates is i think stretching the capabilities too! Will have to repartition my memoty card again ang get rid of Swap partition and extra EXT partion then!
