You don't need swap but some people like it. Usual size is 256Mb.
I think you should use your pc to move your second sd-ext to the left so that it becomes the third partition. Then either delete or expand your linux swap partition. Make sure all partitions are primary. And (re)install rom.
I recommend formatting both ext partitions to ext4 using recovery (4ext recovery if your recovery doesn't support second ext partition), since there may be problems with the rom booting if just formatted by minitool on pc. There is an sd version of 4ext recovery if you dont want to flash it to nand.
thanks for your feedback above. The fact is, CWM always creates a Linux Swap partition, if you start to create a new system partition.
mine right now is the 31MB. The "unallocated" one is from MiniTool software. I tried to remove it, but it wont go away.
Seems that there went something wrong during the resize process. I dont know and honestly dont care, because there is no problem with ROM installation at all.
Thank you for the info about the SWAP size, will try to install KK without Swap.
Regarding the partition sizes and amounts, please see below:
- 1st Partition 1,91GB ext3 format, primary, 32KB cluster size
- 2nd Partition 2,00GB ext4 format, primary, default cluster size
- Linux Swap 31,00 MB (created automatically during partitioning SD card from CWM)
- The rest is FAT32 format with default cluster size.
1 am using a 16GB MicroSDHC (Class 4, will purchase a new 32 or 64GB class 6 or maybe class 10, because i own an HD2 EUR Version and always prefer the install method DataOnExt). The reasone i posted these question is cos i will try KK installation shortly.
