Updating CM9 when using Link2SD without wiping anything.

We don't need those. Camcorder has already been fixed, it's temporarily out of usage. The hardware has OMX problems, not the software.

Using also link2sd.

Using Link2SD, you need to clear all caches from the app. Then reboot into recovery, install the ROM, install Gapps, then boot. Open Link2SD and menu > more > recreate mount scripts
When it boots, you might get a lot/a few force closes, why? Because the apps cannot find their .dex elements and therefore don't respond on boot. You need to go back into Link2SD, wait a minute, and press menu > more > link dalvik-cache files
. Should take a while. When it's done, wait a minute. Reboot. (will take a long time as the .dex files link up again)
Do the same again, open Link2SD, menu > more > link dalvik-cache files
Keep doing this until all of them are linked, or until it says 0.00B linked. Then press menu > more > Relink all Application files
, then press Clean up the Second Partition
. Then Reboot.
You're done! Enjoy you're new nightly.
