1) When backing up the whole SDCard's data, will current Apps2SD data also be backed up? (I read certain times, to perform full backup of SDCard, it's better to use card reader than USB Storage through phone.. Will I be needing Card Reader here?)
2) I often reboot my phone in applying these twicks. The thing that irritates me most is, "Slow Boot Time". It takes at least 3 minutes which feels like 3 hours and I find it hard to stand it. What do you do to improve boot time?
Thanks again for this tutorial.
(PS: I certainly do understand stupidity of some questions which gets peeved us. I'll try to ask much less as I could. We all much appreciate your work here.)
The current one, being? It depends which one you're using. If you're using the stock one, then it won't work. It doesn't free up as much memory as what I did in the guide does. This method completely frees up your internal memory, other than the widgets you need installed internally in order for them to work.
You don't need an SD card reader, you can just connect your phone via usb, and copy everything in the SD to a folder in your pc. Doing that, I believe will also copy the app data that the phone was already using by storing to the sd which also will be moved automatically when you apply this guide.
Hehe, that booting time my friend, depends on everything you have installed on your phone. A perfect example is, if you have EVERYTHING installed internally, your phone will automatically boot as soon as you turn it back on. But since the phone takes time scanning the SD card before booting and everything is installed in the SD, you can already know that logically, will result in a longer scanning (booting) time. That's why every time you reboot, the icons look weird. That's because the phone hasn't scanned them and determined whether they're installed or not. So either way, that "slow boot" is a must every time you reboot your phone otherwise it will not work with everything in the sd card.
Any more questions?
