    So, I partitioned my DROID's SD Card. Now what?

    Uh. I'm still kinda' confused on this, but I need assistance. I partitioned my SD Card on my DROID, and yeah... I notice a definite speed boost. c: But yeah, all I want to do is install my apps to my SD card, I'll just do a quick rundown of what I did.

    Well, first, I backed up my entire card onto my hard drive, then proceeded to format my MicroSD card in FAT32. Then, using MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition, I created a FAT32, ext3, and Linux Swap partition on the msd card.
    I don't know what to do now.

    So, my questions are, one, How do I install my apps to the ext3 partition, and two, do I just restore my cards contents back into the FAT32 partition?

    Thank youuu~. c:

    Use the app link2sd from the market. You can put all of your apps, including those that have widgets. And everything will work just fine from there. When you load up the application it will ask you what partition you want to mount. Select the correct partition reboot and then everything should be good from there if you have any problems come back and just ask.

    Can you please walk me through this whole thing? Link2SD asks me about the partition, I select ext3, but it results in an error.
    I don't know if I even did the partitioning right.

    OK. What phone are you using? I should've asked that first. What kernel too please?

    So. I need to have an ext4 partition before I flash this? Just wanna make this clear.\

    EDIT: I formatted my card. No partitions. So first, I make an FAT32 thats about 12GB for my music, photo's, rom files, etc. And then the rest, I just allocate for an ext4 partition? After this is done, I just flash the file you sent me?
