    Without wishing to sound insulting, why did you format it if you didn't want to wipe it?

    Then you should be good to go, simply go into the recovery and take a backup. If you formatted it through the phone it should be fine

    How about if you put it in the phone, and connect the phone to the PC? If you mount it, you should be able to format it there

    ok i think i got it. if i partition it from recovery. what should i set the values to be (tried doing a quick search but came up empty) i just did it with stting the values to 512 and 512 and it shows that i have 908MB free on it. is there a different value i can use to have more space for "personal" use yet still leave enough for the apps?

    edit: its the stock 2GB card btw

    I think defaults are 96mb for swap, 500mb for the ext partitions

    Yup, it's fairly simple from here on out, put the update zip on the base of you SD card an flash away!

    This forum is for asking questions, happy to help
