[MOD] A2EXT Froyo
ATTENTION: Cyanogenmod version 6.1.0 has A2EXT support built into the rom so an edited boot.img is no longer needed just flash the add-on to enable it and also you must do the commands to move dalvik-cache to the EXT partition as well...
Thank You for reading this if you actually took the time to!
Ok so i decided to post some things on here. Let me explain why I did things the way I did first of all. I decided to only edit the boot.img in each of the froyo roms that we all use and post those here along with a flashable .zip file that allows you to activate apps2ext on froyo roms. I did it this way to show respect to the developers of the roms by not stealing there downloads with my own. Doing it this way means that you have to download the actual rom from them which I hope makes things better for them.
You will need to already have an EXT partition setup already to be able to do this.
To any Dev if you do not like me doing this to your rom then by all means PM me and i will remove it ASAP.
To any downloader/user if there is a rom that you want me to include that isn't or a rom that isn't Froyo let me know and i will try to get that for you ASAP.
Credit for this goes to the Dev's of each rom and the darktremor a2sd method maker:
Cyanogen and teamdouche
XDA of course!! :D
Everyone that uses my edits
If i didn't mention you then PM me i will add you.
Now on to the Goods:
All of these are just boot.img from each rom. This is not an one for all boot.img type thing because each rom could have done something to the boot.img that may cause a bootloop if added to a different rom.
Rename each to boot.img and place into your rom.
After that you don't actually have to do any resigning since we all are using clockwork recovery just make sure its setup to allow flashing without signatures.
This only supports EXT2 or EXT3 which is pretty much all slide users have considering its nothing new.
Download the a2sd.zip and flash it at any time after you get your base rom flashed.
I will try to keep these updated to the latest versions if there is enough demand for them. Also i will try to keep the latest 3 nightlies up-to-date.
Boot Images Here
A2sd Enabling package
OK as stated above these are only boot.img.
You need to rename each to just boot.img and place them inside the rom you like.
Make sure you wipe everything and do a fresh install it helps a lot to do everything fresh. (if your worried about apps use titanium backup or some other backup app)
Flash the a2sd add-on
Once the add-on has been flashed and there aren't any problems there are a few ways to enable actual a2ext.
You can either use adb or a terminal app on your phone.
If using adb phone can be turned on or in recover with system mounted.
once you pick a way here are the commands:
(if using a terminal app skip steps 1, 2, 5, 6)
1. ./adb remount (windows: adb remount)
2. ./adb shell (windows: adb shell)
Su will be needed for terminal app and may be needed for adb method(just do it in case its needed)
3. cd /system/bin/
4. sh a2sd reinstall
some things will popup and phone should reboot
5. once rebooted ./adb remount
6. ./adb shell
7. cd /system/bin/
8. sh a2sd cachesd
more things will popup and phone should reboot. The last reboot can take 5 minutes or longer especially if you already had apps downloaded. I know on a fresh install it can take what seems like ages.
