I am having little problem here. I partitioned my sdcard with cwm with 1gb ext4 partition and 256mb of swap partition. it said done succesfully.but when i crosschecked in minitool partition wizard it showd partition as ext3. now when link2sd asks me which partition it is then what should i do. i want to use as ext4 bcz i read that it is the best among ext2 3 4 (tell me if its not). also pls tell is swap space useful for xperia neo?are there any imrovements of performance with this swap partition? kind of confused here..

Just use mini tool partition wizard to create the partition.
Not sure which is the "best" to use.
I use ext 2 because thats all the x10 kernels was able to handle and i have never had any problems.

I have never used swap, but from what i have read its not a good idea...

default ext4 have journaling feature and it will shorten the life of the sdcard will die more quickly but datas become more safety

ext4 without journaling feature better than ext2
