    Was wondering if you have been able to get apps2ext working and if so, can you help me out with getting it going?

    I have my sd card partitioned from back when I did it on UD and used droid swap and had all my apps installed on the SD card

    Thanks in advance for any help bro

    Yes any instructions would be awesome. I have no idea how to do it and I know zero is very knowledgable. I would like to do it too.

    OK, to start you're going to have to push the 20userinit file I've attached (extract it first) to /system/etc/init.d/ and set permissions to 0750.

    adb remount
    adb push 20userinit /system/etc/init.d/
    adb shell chmod 0750 /system/etc/init.d/20userinit

    Then, you'll need to bypass e2fsck because it's not working correctly on this ROM. Easiest way to do this is changing it's permissions.

    adb shell chmod 644 /system/bin/e2fsck

    Then you'll need to go to Firerat's thread here and get the latest App2EXT script, the current one is 1.36c, download it and place it on the root of your SD card.

    Then, just run this command:

    adb shell
    sh /sdcard/fr-a2sd_1-36c.sh.txt

    You'll be prompted by an error saying it's assuming file system is ok because we're bypassing e2fsck; then you'll make the choice of binding /data/data/ to /sd-ext/data/. This is a personal choice for everyone; so please be sure to read Firerat's thread carefully so you can understand what you'll be getting yourself into. No worries though, whatever you choose here you can reverse easily.

    If you have any questions after reading Firerat's thread carefully, hit me up and I'll try and explain it to you in a more simplified way.

    I've been thinking about trying this too...what are the benefits to partitioning out the sd? Would you take the card and hook it up to your puter and use something like a partition manager to do it?
    I don't imagine the tools exist to do it while in the phone...

    I guess I'm typing slow tonight...must be the margaritas...

    I barely remember back to when I partitioned mine, I believe it was also done through adb

    Actually, you can do it from the phone, just have to download parted, push it to /system/bin/ and set correct permissions, but in all honesty, it's more trouble than it's worth. It's much easier to reboot into recovery, mount SD card mass storage, run gparted live CD or USB stick, and partition it like that while SD card is still in the phone (acting like a makeshift card reader).

    Once it's partitioned, you can just leave it like that. You'll make 512MB-1GB ext3, maybe a 32MB linux-swap and the rest fat32 (has to be in order though, fat32 #1, ext3 #2 and swap #3), so you don't lose very much room.
