- (root needed) Use the app Rootexplorer or ES File Explorer and browse to the places (/system/sd) if you see directories app, app-private and any-other directories a2sd is working. you can check which app has been moved to ext partition in app directory. If you do not see directories follow bellow steps.
I am not be held responsible for any lost data or turning your phone into a brick.
partitioning your SD card will format it and you will lose all data on the card. Please do yourself a favor and backup all contents of your SD card to your PC!
Typically it’s best to have a2sd setup before you flash a ROM
Back up all your data from the SD card to your PC
Clockwork -?creates ext3 partitions by default, if you are using latest ClockworkMod Recovery v18.104.22.168 port for the HTC Chacha by adlx.xda's, I believe it creates ext4 partitions by default & limited size choices. I believe the options are 512, 1024, 2048, respectively
Boot into recovery.
Main menu in recovery scroll down to advanced press the enter button.
Now in the advanced menu scroll down to the Partition SD card option and press the enter button
When asked for the ext size, I recommend using 512mb or 1GB. There can be stability issues going over 1.5GB
When asked for the swap size 0mb, 128mb or 250mb, its your choice if you want to use swap otherwise select 0mb. (This Rom support swap)
Time to flash ROM.
To view the help of a2sd you need to have terminal emulator for android, Evey time you run terminal emulator you will need to type this command “su” (without the ” ) hit enter this gives terminal super user access.
Type a2sd check and hit enter again, It will display the settings for apps, private apps, dalvik, swap, zipalign, & low memory killer settings, it will also display suggested commands for each parameter. You can also type a2sd help for a list of all supported commands. It is very easy to use.
If you had already installed Rom, you may need to issue this command in Terminal Emulator in order to enable it
Moves all current and future non-system apps to the sd card & performs a full reboot
