    I may package up this modification into an easily-installable .zip file, or I may just see if it can get included in the next CM release.
    Let Cyanogen know, offer it to the TeamDouche repository, and maybe drop Koush a line. He seems much more interested in the X/2 nowadays, but that's where the new development is heading anyway since the Droid is EOL now.

    I would like to try your method if you don't mind posting the zip

    While looking through Firerat's script, I discovered that that he put a lot of work into making sure there isn't any data loss or other problems with the conversion from internal data to /sd-ext, so I've decided not to mess with it :-)

    Here's what you can do to try it out:

    1). Backup your SD card
    2). Format and re-partition your SD card (you can use ROM Manager to do this automatically)
    3). Reload stuff onto your SD card
    4). Make a nandroid backup!
    5). Install a kernel that can mount the second partition on the SD card as ext3. I know Slayher works, and P3Droid works if you make sure that the ext3 module loads. The default CM kernel does NOT work
    6). Delete /etc/init.d/05mountsd
    7). Run Firerat's script. It should install a new copy of 05mountsd and mount your SD card. If it doesn't mount your SD card, you'll want to just stop here and try other things like mounting it manually until you have a system that can mount it on boot.
    8). Once Firerat's script runs and moves your apps to the SD card, you should be able to reboot and it will still work. At this point, make a nandroid backup!

    IF you run into the problems I did (where a battery pull makes your /sd-ext partition not boot and all your apps appear to be missing) let me know! For all I know at this point, I'm the only one with this problem, and if that's the case, the extra steps I had to take aren't worth it.
    Cool CM Tricks
    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    Ive tried using the script twice every time I move my data/data folder everything seems to quit working and all my apps force close. It won't let me move anything back either. I don't know if re-partitioning my sd card would help at ll.

    What do you mean by re-partitioning? You already have it partitioned into at least 2 partitions (first as primary fat32, second as ext3), right?

    Does it properly mount /sd-ext on boot? Make sure that is working before proceeding

    Yes it is partitioned but does not seem to mount I am using slaythers kernel what steps should I try to get it to mount properly?
    I was using this command mount -o rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /sd-ext and it keeps saying it failed device or resource is busy.

    If you're already running slayhers kernel, what error do you get when you run Firerat's script?

    If you type "df", does it list /sd-ext as mounted?

    Do you see a device for /dev/block/mmcblk0p2?

    When you reboot, does /sd-ext come back up and mount automatically (check with df)?

    Ok, that looks like it's mounting /sd-ext fine, and the errors sound a lot like the errors I was seeing. I didn't get force-closes, but all the apps were missing.

    I'm attaching my fix to this post for you to try, if you want.

    1). Run firerat's script to install all your apps to /sd-ext
    2). Reboot into recovery and apply this update file (works in CWM, no idea about other recoveries)
    NOTE: Don't try to boot normally until you install this update, and don't run Firerat's script AFTER the update.
    3). Then cross your fingers and hope that your droid will boot up and have all your apps still.

    What this update will do is modify your ramdisk and install a copy of 05mountsd that I modified, overwriting the one that firerat installs. The ramdisk modification causes it to wait for a property cm.filesystem.ready to be 1 before it will start sysinit. The modification to 05mountsd waits for /sd-ext to mount, and when it is successfull it sets cm.filesystem.ready to be 1.

    Let me know if this works for you. Make sure you have a backup just in case you get stuck unable to boot up!
