Setting up a swap partition
This guide will walk through how to set up a SD card swap. SD card swap allows your SD card to become a place where your physical memory can become virtual memory thus helping free up more physical memory . This is most likely needed in 512 mb devices running Virtuous Unity. This guide has in mind that you have knowledge of ADB. If not you may follow the alternate way, but I have not personally tried that way. If you would like to know more about ADB and how to set it up please go to ]this guide by theunlockr.com: http://theunlockr.com/2009/10/06/how...droid-devices/.
Warning - Using swap will reduce the life of your sdcard. Sdcards only have a finite number of R/W cycles and using swap means that the sdcard is written to a lot more than it would under normal use. I recommend doing regular backups of your sdcard as we will accept no responsibility for damaged cards or lost data.

*Please back up everything on your SD card before going forward, Iím not responsible if you do not follow this step and loose everything on your SD card or if your phone is killed in anyway.

* Please Upgrade to Clockworkmod to 3.0.2.6 or newer before making the partition

1) Please boot into Clockworkmod Recovery (CWM, CWM Recovery). Once there go to Advanced-->Partition SD card-->Ext and Swap partition sizes. You will want to pick 128 mb for ext and 256 mb for swap partition.

2) Reboot into your ROM and place this http://dl.dropbox.com/u/32936737/swap_enabler.sh script into the root (not with in any folder) of your SD card.

Once there you can go two directions. Direction A is through ADB, Direction B is through the terminal emulator.

3a) Type these commands in the command prompt:


Code:
adb shell
chmod 755 /mnt/sdcard/swap_enabler.sh
sh /mnt/sdcard/swap_enabler.sh
3b) Type these commands in the terminal emulator (You can find this on the market)


Code:
su
chmod 755 /mnt/sdcard/swap_enabler.sh
sh /mnt/sdcard/swap_enabler.sh
Please reboot your phone after the script is done

4) Verifying that it works. Please choose 4a if you used ADB and 4b if you chose terminal emulator.

4a) If youíre using ADB type these lines in the command prompt


Code:
adb shell
free
4b) If youíre using terminal emulator type these lines in the emulator:


Code:
su
free
If you did not get a bunch of 0s that means it is working, Congratulations.
__________________________________________________ ________________________________


The following code will not update partition tables on sd card, it will just switch off the swap in the system

If you want to do this enter these lines in the command prompt (If using ADB)

Code:
adb shell (skip if you're already in adb shell)
sh /mnt/sdcard/swap_enabler.sh disable
If you want to undo using the terminal emulator do
su
sh /mnt/sdcard/swap_enabler.sh disable[CODE]


Credits: Give a giant thanks to nv- for writing the swap_enabler script and original walk through,
Pato for the CWM tip
Cimer for the original tutorial http://forums.virtuousrom.com/index.php/topic,58.0.html
