Default How do I not run out of internal memory on a custom rom?

Safestrap will only allow 3gb of memory to be allocated internally. General consensus is that there is no way to save apps or photos to the sd card instead of internally, resulting in a memory warning after a few days of use in a custom rom.

SD card works fine for me but what rom are you running?

All of them

I have batakang/CM 10.1/vitreous on various slots. I was planning on using Bata as a daily driver but it lasted less than a day after titanium backup restore of my app data which easily took up the 3gb limit. As far as I know there's no way to circumvent saving app data to internal storage.

The 3GB is for data, app storage. Your pictures should have no effect on the 3GB. I have well over 900 pics while on Fuzion and have no warnings whatsoever

The 3gb isn't being taken up by pictures. It's being taken up by apps and their data. That's the issue.

Try rom toolbox by jrummy. It will enable apps2sd, but it might be for rooted phones only.

I'm pretty sure that does not work on the Razr HD or the Razr Maxx HD.

Just moved some small apps to sd, like real calculator and imdb.
It works fine.

That's what I get for believing everything I read!

How did you move them? By uninstall/reinstall?
I don't get the 'move to sd card' option.
