    i just downloaded droidswap off a forum. i want to know some stuff about it before i use it. when i partition some of my sd card will it erase everything? and should i wait until my class 6 16gb sd card comes in before i do it? im using the droids stock sd card. thanks in advance!

    when i partition some of my sd card will it erase everything? yes, backup its contents before partitioning
    should i wait until my class 6 16gb sd card comes in before i do it? if you already ordered it, yes, you may as well wait... are you using the desire ROM? because no other roms need Swap

    also, are you using ROM Manager to partition?

    i think droid swap partitions it for you. i have a partition for apps2sd and i used rom manager for that. why is the desire rom the only rom? im using ud10 and helixlauncher 2 takes up a bunch of ram and i dont know why. doesnt making a swap partition free up some ram? therefore speeding up your phone?

    in theory yes, but it is also buggy... give it a try... and let us know if it makes your phone any faster
