- Backup all SD card content to PC
- Boot into recovery (CWM188.8.131.52)
- From recovery, create sd-ext partition
- From recovery, format the new partition
- From recovery, mount usb device, restore all SD card content from PC.
- Reboot device, installed link2sd and managed to link applications to sd.
Now link2sd seems to work fine- I tried linking quite a few applications and all of them work fine, no complaints. It only gave me an error with some apps which I have previously *moved* to SD using Titanium backup, but upon moving them to internal storage link2sd picked them okay.
However, I noticed that using file explorer, root explorer etc- they all show the sd-ext partition as empty, with size of 0 bytes??
Then, I booted into recovery and tried to mount the sd-ext partition, but I get an error message... (all other partitions I can mount/unmount just fine).
To be sure, after each reboot it looks like all the applications linked2sd work appropiately, so everything looks fine.
However, now I am concerned whether I can create (and restore, of course) nandroid backups- what will happen with all these apps linked to sd? Am I right that CWM may not be able to backup (and therefore restore) anything that is on this partition?
Am I going to lose all these apps and data? Does TiB backup these apps+data and be able to restore them fine to sd-ext? I'm asking about TiB as a mediocre workaround of restoring applications that were in sd-ext (and thus omitted by CWM backup). That is, after restoring nand backup- doing an additional restore from TiB??
Any help/insight is welcome
Ah, yes, some more info:
