Default [TOOL] 11/Nov r2: BackToEXT3 - for converting your device, er, back to EXT3

If you have been using a EXT4 ROM and you want to restore a stock ROM that only has EXT3 support, it's a bit of a faff. Introducing BackToEXT3.

This ClockworkMod update zip simply converts your /system, /data and cache partitions back to EXT3. It wipes them both in the process, so you need to have an existing backup / ROM to restore to.

After installing FR12 custom ROM Vanilla Edition on my phone, I wanted to get back to stock so I installed - back to ext3 zip. Then when I tried to restore the stoc ROM, I got the error MD5 mismatch!

I want to specify that I tried a custom ROM before but with ext3, and I had no problem to return to the stock ROM.
