Thank you for helping me get this to work, I did have a force close as I was moving the apps to ext but after i flashed the zip it seems to work smooth. Just a quick question I can use the apkmanager.sh script to move the apps if I am having problems with a app say lag or if I install a new app correct? Just don't run the sh /sdcard/fr-a2sd_1-35.sh.txt? I think this is what you meant buy don't run the script again I just wanted to make sure? If I install a new nightly I just need to run the apps2sdext_hack_new.zip again?
Yeah, running apkmanager.sh is fine, it's just the fr-a2sd script that will overwrite 05mountsd. If you DO decide to run that script, just make sure to apply my zip file again to revert the change back again.

I see i still have stuff in data/data can I just use root explorer to delete that or is there a better way? I saw on your post you seemed to have the same issue on the cm forum.

Are you SURE you have stuff in /data/data? Keep in mind that /sd-ext/data is mounted on /data/data, so when you look in /data/data, you're going to see that, and not the real contents of the data partition.

If you really want to check if you have anything in the real /data, try this:
then poke around in /mnt/data.real to see what is there. You should not see much in /data/app or /data/data since it's using /sd-ext instead. If you see anything in there, compare it to what you see in /sd-ext. If the same data is in both /sd-ext and /mnt/data.real, you can safely delete the copy in /mnt/data.real.
mount -o rw,remount /
mount /dev/block/mtdblock6 /mnt/data.real
thanks again that worked Im glad you figured this out cause I have no clue
hey guys thanks a lot this worked for me. im probably running the same setup as marty4short, MIUI v 6.
how will installing new apps work? automatically to sd-ext??
as a note to anyone following the above advice, do not delete data.real. LOL got a bootloop had to reinstall the rom and rerun the script, luckily all the apps were still there so good as new.! thanks again.
Indeed! Do not just delete the contents of data.real! You should be checking to make sure that the files in there are also in the new directories in sd-ext, and with the exception of /data/app and data/data, the contents of "data.real" are still being used, even when sd-ext is mounted.
