Just was wondering if a2sd+ is compatible or if anyone has tried it yet? Currently running MIUI 9.16 (a2sd works perfect) and would love to come back to SS.

Thanks for posting. How do you have your sdcard set up?

SS and Primes kernel have native extra support. I have 1g ext3 partition no swap. SS allowed me to pick ext4 file system. I am using A2SDGUI (in market). Files and dalvic cache on sdcard. Oncce I picked ext4 filesystem a2sd install script ran with no issues.

I' ve had a2sd working on PE6.5, SS, Liquid, and CM7. I like it over link2sd.

Ahh OK. So I can just do a convert ext4 command then run the install command. Didn't know they had the scripts preinstalled. Good deal. Thanks for the info. That helps alot.

EDIT:

Upon attempting it on SS5.5, after installing DT's 2.7.3.5 Beta 4 I now had force close under Chevy's Tools and a2sd scripts would not work due to "no kernel support for ext filesystem". Anyone got a runthrough as to what exactly I should do to get a2sd functioning on any other rom other than MIUI.

What kernel are you using?
I am using Primes deprimed, he also has a pre-install script I had forgotten to mention. I will see if I can find it and get back to you...

Here is a link to the Link2sd-preinstall zip from Prime. I seem to remember I had to use this to get the ext partition to mount. If ext4 did not work try ext3 in SS file/systems. I had to flash back to SS to see exactly what I did. I do not recall having to jump through any hoops for it to work. The only rom I had any issues getting it to work was PE6.5 as there is not native support.

Hope it helps.

On miui/cm7, the stock audicken@hera. On SS5.5, tried the stock 1Ghz LV.

If I remember correctly the stock kernel does not have the .ko module for ext

Hmm...

So if I nandroid my current MIUI and try ss again but with an advanced restore of boot from Miui.us that should work. Be back and will continue testing.

Will be completely honest, I have had not good luck with deprimed in the past. Will try it again though. I haven't ventured further with it.
