Is that something others would be interested in? typically it's mounted via /sd-ext if you want access to the external card and the internal is on /sdcard.

I thought /sd-ext typically contains second partition (usually non-FAT) on the external sdcard. Give me please an example of a ROM where internal sdcard is mounted via /sd-ext?

Internal is never really mounted as sd-ext. Are you asking to make /sdcard point to your external card instead of having it use the internal? I can make a version like that for you but it would be a one-off build, I don't think that's a great idea for the general masses.

add /sdcard/external_sd /sd-ext to fstab
Thanks, but not needed. I swapped my internal/external storage and this recovery now perfectly fits for me - my .android_secure is backed up by backup tool now - that's only why I asked.

How about adding
Code:
/dev/block/mmcblk1p1 /sdcard/external_sd vfat rw
/dev/block/mmcblk1p2 /sd-ext ext4 rw
to the fstab ?

sd-ext backup
Would be nice to have sd-ext (mmcblk1p2) backup too.
I can see this is implemented, but partition is not being mounted for backup.

My phone has a USB problem, is there any known way to flash this recovery without the use of a computer? I found an app called recovery manager in the market that is compatible with the galaxy s and the captivate i827. Hoping it would work for the glide!

Hm, I don't think so
If you had cwm maybe you could download the zip but for installing cwm you're gonna need it on the computer. What kind of USB problem? Mine actted weird for a while too

I think a power spike during a rain storm did something. I called AT&T, they warrantied the phone. I just got the replacement today!
