Hi guys! Since I'm always seeing a post about Amarullz and other A2SD scripts having problems like random force closes, bootloops, slow read/write and not working on Stock and CM9/10 Roms. I'm going to share with you an awesome alternative to those A2SD scripts like Link2SD, Amarullz, S2E, and DarkTremor's A2SD. I'm just sharing this so if you don't wanna use it leave it. I'm just giving you guys alternatives. Try to read the Notes first before posting violent reactions.

Original Thread by croniccorey
All Credits goes to him.

Notes
*Please try to read the whole thread to avoid problems especially the Prerequisites.
*Please do a nandroid backup first if you're not coming from a fresh install of ROM so that we can avoid problems.
*I am advicing you to flash this after a fresh install of ROM.
*Please check your ROM's zip if it has a2sd scripts and remove it before flashing the ROM.
*If you have any other installation methods kindly post it here.
*The INT2EXT+ is the most advicable out of those scripts as it is the one used by the creator.
*Moving /data/data to /sd-ext might slow down the performance of the phone.
*If you choose a d2ext/int2ext script then remove the "06mountdl" or "06BindCache" in init.d folder if they exist as the script will do this from now on.

(Taken from the thread)

About:

CronMod INT2EXT scripts are the first universal INT2EXT method released

Hi, I'm using INT2EXT4+. Works great and speed is awesome, but there's only on problem: if I wipe dalvik cache the device doesn't boot.
Looking at the logcat I noticed that it doesn't find davik anymore, there's a bunch of NOT FOUND errors. Is this normal? If not, is it possible to fix it?
Thanks in advance!

Hi to all!

Sorry for my bad english...

Do these scripts work on a stock Rom, like GINGERBREAD 2.3.6 with version of kernel: 2.6.35.7 dpi@DELL145 #1?
Or should i flash the phone to another Rom?

I have been using INT2EXT+ for about a week and I am pretty happy with the results, only thing I have noticed is that whenever any app is installed or any read/write operation is performed the phone freezes momentarily and system force closes, I just hit wait, let it do its thing and it comes up good after a few minutes, I guess it's the lag of writing to the SD instead of internal memory, but is this normal? does it happen to you guys using the script?
