furthermore, when I unzip it its not an apk but a few files and a few folders:
AndroidManifest.xml
classes.dex
META-INF (folder)
res (folder)
resources.arsc

Please help
Don't unzip it... just rename it toAppstoSD2.apk

Default these are the best folders to move for optimal space and speed

This is the old school way but the exact order to do it in maybe scripts can be modded.

cp -a /system/app system/sd/app
mv /system/sd/app /system/sd/appsys

<<<hero only>>> cp -a /system/app_s /system/sd

cp -a /data/app /system/sd
cp -a /data/app-private /system/sd
cp -a /data/dalvik-cache /system/sd

reboot in recovery
mount system

rm -rf /system/app
<<hero>> rm -rf /system/app_s

ln -s /system/sd/appsys /system/app
ln -s /system/sd/app_s /system/app_s

mount data

rm -rf /data/app
rm -rf /data/app-private
rm -rf /data/dalvik-cache

ln -s /system/sd/app /data/app
ln -s /system/sd/app-private /data/app-private
ln -s /system/sd/dalvik-cache /data/dalvik-cache

There's definitely seems to be some performance issues with unionfs.

I can get my g1 to lock up if I'm running unionfs with apps/app-private/dalvik-cache on the sd card by doing the following:

1. Play IMEEM in the background
2. Go to this website


http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2009...beautiful.html

If I do the same thing with everything in internal flash or using symlink a2sd method, I don't get the same lockup.

I'm sticking with symlinks for now.

I also see more menu lagging with unionfs. Meaning if I press "menu", it takes a split second to come up, while using symlinks its faster.

I always thought the stuttering was just something I was doing.

AUFS seems to be reported as better. Any chance of switching to that other than using cyanogen's build?
