More importantly how did you partition your sdcard?

Should be done only with 4EXT recovery or gparted, not clockworkmod or minitool

hmm strange you created it using the right recovery.

The ext partition won't show up in your internal memory (i.e. it won't read 217MB + 512MB) but the sd-ext should store your apps and dalvik if you activated with A2SD with Y N Y

However, 512MB is very small, if you have enough apps it will fill up quite quickly. I'd recommend:

- backup sd card
- repartition with maximum 2GB ext4 partition, no swap (1.5GB is enough normally)
- full wipe and reinstall ROM, activate A2SD
- restore apps

Check your partition is filling up with an app like 'DiskUsage'

Try mount2sd and then verify it is enabled by checking overview in titanium backup.

Mounts2SD doesn't work with 4.2.2. I tried it.. or maybe I didn't do it right.
It only worked on GB for me..
but instead of the
a2sd install y>n>y
I did
a2sd xdata
Works like a charm
