    Help understanding sd-ext parition and moving apps

    I formatted my sd-card with an ext2 parition. I installed the Apps 2 SD application from the market. How can I tell if the apps are being moved to the proper partition? When I move the app, only have the application size shows up in the Application setting with the option of Move to phone showing. Does the whole application get moved to the sd card or not? I'm currently running Simply Stunning 5.4.

    With any Rom based on Froyo or Gingerbread, you do NOT need to add the SD-EXT partition. That was only for Eclair ROMs as they didn't support apps2sd and needed a special partition.

    As for moving all the app, it only moves the bulk of the data, leaving a "stub" on the /data partition....sort of like a shortcut pointing to where the app was moved.
