Default (Q) Alien Rom V5 Link2SD

I have just installed Alien Rom V5 on my ST26. The app looks great and is very fast.

Can anyone tell me if I can link apps to an ext4 partition on my SD card using Link2SD?

I have tried doing this, but apps keep closing.

as i know in this AlienRom, the SD card (external) is swapped into internal SD card so you dont have to link coz all install apps go to external which is now read by the system as internal.....(correct me if im wrong )

I'm aware of the external SD / internal SD swap, but I think apps are still being installed to the internal memory (not the internal SD).

Before switching to AlienRom I was using gavster's AVD Rom and Link2SD installed every app to the ext4 partition on my external SD.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to prevent apps installing to the phone memory? I have a number of phone only apps which have filled the phone memory and are preventing some app updates and the installation of larger new apps.

Link2SD with an ext4 partition worked so well on the AVD Dark Moon Rom.

I thought vold.fstab only switches between external SD and internal SD. The Rom already does this.

Can vold.fstab be edited to prevent apps saving to the phone memory?
