ext4 partition can be made from windows using minitool partition wizard home edition http://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html
I assume FAT32 partition should be first and ext4 partition second.

What size partition should I create?
I usually use partitions of 1 or 2 GB on 16 or 32 GB cards

hi..
my phone's hardware button (green button) is not working.. so i can not make any changes to magldr..
currently, my boot folder is set to ICS..

I was just wondering if its possible to edit the initrd.gz as mentioned in post 3 in such a way that it would reflect my folder (ICS) instead of NativeSD?

should i just replace all places which have NativeSD with my folder that is ICS? or is it just some specific places?

I did not consider this case... let me think how to solve it.

Yes sir, or use recovery for partitioning your sdcard.. I recommend 4EXT recovery for the job.

Depends on how many roms you are going to install...

I think 2 GB is a nice start.. especially when apps will be shared in future updates you won't have to install all apps over and over again.

Great work guys, have installed on a class 6, speed seems fine (personally I haven't found there to be any noticeable lag with SD builds).
Have just run some benchmarks; would attach if i could find a screenshot button. And will see how it performs for a day or two and report back before messing with it.

Just a suggestion, but with future builds are you considering adding an option to choose which ext to install to? So that you can have multiple sd-ext builds and/or a NAND build with a sd-ext and a separate sdext rom.

Likin' the installer as well, haven't used aroma too often, but you've customised this one and made it your own.

Nice Work.


Can't find screenshot, so. Using a class 6 card in:
Code:
System Test = 3398 ; SD card read/write = 13.6/8.0 MB/s
PassMark Performance = 816 ; Internal Storage read/write = 14.7/13.1 MB/s External Storage r/w = 15.1/8.27 MB/s
AnTuTu = 2741 (typical SDROM score) SD card r/w = 9.7/7.4 MB/s

So besides changing the folder are you actually able to enter recovery without a working green key?

You'll need that 2

Couldn't he copy the files into the partition on the desktop? Using ubuntu for example, or while in a running nand build? Or would that be likely to cause issues?

well to b honest when i read on the first post that wm6.5 users and magldr users using wp7 in nand are also to be supported in the future, i never considered that recovery was a must.. guess i was wrong

every time you install a new ROM to SD/ext4 you should copy the /sdcard/NativeSD/* to your /sdcard/ICS/

for the multi-boot part you only need to change the NativeSD to ICS in the switch script.

but I don't know how can you enter CWM and install the ROM?
