    ok so i have been looking for wast to free up more and more internal memory i came across an app that lets you (so long your device is rooted ) to move the entire dalvik cache to the sd card. so i was thinking is it possible to buy a 16gb sd card and reserve 8gigs soley for user apps??? via a sd card partition??? and how would i begin to even do this??? thanks for your help:)

    In my experience 512mb partitioned on an sdcard is more than enough. I used mini tool partition wizard (free). If you're on stock ROM it supports up to ext3.

    8 gigs for apps lol how many apps you want on your phone, if it was a pc 8 gb would almost be enough to install windows lol

    but yes you could technically move most app things to sd with the use of a partition, but if i remember correctly i think some apps still prefer to be on the phone itself, i think gmail and some other google apps maybe a few of them, they still work, just a bit laggy sometimes and i dont seem to get any notifications if gmails on the card, but you may not even use those apps anyway

    well i do use alot of apps i but its mostly the reasurance of knowing i would have enough space i mean phone come with internal memory of up to 64gigs lol and yes i know some apps can and cant be moved to sd cards regardless of if you can force move or not.:rolleyes:

    im on cm7 reloded btw and im still not quite sure exactly how sd partitions work thats the main reson i made this post:)

    yes thats the ap i was talking about i just couldnt remeber the name also i know im about to sound a bit greddy but idc:p i am already able to move stuff to my sd card with root accses and force move but theres still the matter of the dalvik cache wich i dont want on my phones internal memory period thats why im asking eg i dont mind widgets being on the internal memory beacuse they need to be in order to function properly
