Default Changing SD cards, how to transfer ext data?

I am on Slip CM9 using sd2ext+ on a 2gb memory card with a 512mb ext partition.

I just got an 8gb kingston card, gonna make a 1gb ext partition on it. Need to know how I can transfer all Apps and data from one card to the other? I DONT HAVE A CARD READER!!! And the backups made via recovery is for some reason not backing up ext, can't I somehow backup whole ROM and ext stuff, then insert 8gb card make the new partition and restore everything? Another option is titanium backup obviously.

Anyway, just give me different options? How to transfer Apps and data from ext, keeping in mind that I dont have a card reader.

Easyest way is Titanium, Flash new rom, then transfer titanium's backup folder and you'll be fine. Another way is some kind of driver for windows which allow's you to read and write ext file systems and just copy paste, but with this I'm pretty sure that most of the app's won't work.

Oh thanks, On Sony Ericsson x10 mp, when I made nandroid backup via cwm, it automatically backed up ext folder as well, I was hoping that might be possible here as well with some recovery. Anyhow, titanium it is then, it just takes a hell lot of time backing up and then restoring.

Can't get you properly but I guess titanium backup solves it
