Yes it is advice which is what I'm giving. I think you mis-understood my point. It only applies when your using a ext partition for your apps. If your not using a ext partition your apps are not restoring to the sdcard. I made apps2ext for froyo and gingerbread ever since CM no longer supported it after cm5

Default Instructions?

You say these are the instructions for someone not familiar with the process. But you do not address some issues, like how does one do a "Nandroid" backup, how does one wipe/format, etc. Would someone please write a complete set of instructions, naming programs to use, procedures to follow, etc, for the NOOB like me. Not trying to be rude, crude or socially unacceptable, but I have read numerous threads, followed several sets of instructions, without success. It is frustrating to read 500 pages of a thread and not find complete instructions. I realize this is the "developers" forums, but us NOOBs have to start somewhere. Once upon a time, you (all of you) were NOOBs.

Search for "How to use a custom recovery" or something of that nature. That's where all of this is located... in recovery. If you don't know what recovery is, you aren't rooted and this won't help you.

Search for an unroot method this guide shows you exactly how to wipe your device...I know because I helped with it, but if this guide is to confusing your gonna mess **** up dude.

Never did we imply this was the total newb guide and all your problems would go away, and as some of you youngsters are coming here complaining let me remind you this is all done in OUR free time, if you feel like we owe you anything you are SADLY mistaken, its more so the other way around, YOU owe us thanks for GIVING you OUR free time....next time instead of looking like an ass donate to someones project rather than complain

I'm still relatively new too, what i did was bring this guide up on pc, and then poke around the reovery menus. Don't select anything until you are sure of whats going on(it asks if you are sure first).

Thank you for your input. But I never stated it was for newbs. If I might suggest something. I have another thread that is linked in my signature, if your on a PC. It has links for those who are just starting out. Also it is never a bad idea to Google things .
