Hello all, long time lurker here.

I am trying to bring new life to my old OG Motorola Droid for my Son to use.

Basically we run out of the usable space every 3 to 6 months even with very app that can be moved to the SD moved to the SD.

I came across info about how app2sd or S2E S2E (simple2ext) | Krikun.Ru or link2SD could help me virtually move my apps to an ext3 partition on my SD card thus giving us more space.

I am running the latest CyanogenMod 7 nightly on OG Moto Droid
I am running Peter Alfonso's LV_V0.1 kernel (says it has ext3 support)
I have formatted my SD card to have a primary Fat32 partition (15gb) and a Ext3 primary partition (1gb) that is listed second, did that in easus paritioner and did apply the partitions, I can see a second partition in Win7 Computer Management.
I have installe S2E, App2SD and Link2SD
I see the ext3.ko in the system/lib on the device

I can get the apps to open but they won't see the ext3 partition and I am out of my league on trying to figure out how to make them see it. I have spent about 10 hours testing things, trying different kernels, formatting and reformatting the card without any real success.


Thanks in advance for your help and reading,
