apps2sd is not necessary. when you flash android (to sd or nand) you can decide to put all data on an sd partition.

I explained how to install the following.

1. FLASH THE ANDROID OS LOADER TO NAND.
2. Copy this androidinstall.tar under a folder named andboot at the top level of your SD Card.
3. When you're done flashing, your device will boot.
4. to start the Android Installer.
5. I selected System on NAND, Data on SDCard.

prompt displayed "unmounted invalid data argrument"

you must create a ext3 data partition on your sd card so ad this to your how-to

0. create 2 partition on sd:
1 -> Fat32
2-> ext3

and then continue with your list...

Are you sure of that ?
this method doesn't work for me with last dzo kernel and incubus RLS5
doest ext3 has to be logical or primary ?

Yes, i'm sure, format your sd card with 2 primary partition. The former will contain the installation files (Fat32) the latter will br you data partition (ext3)
