How to set up A2SD
Requirements: 512MB EXT4 Partition ( 1024MB Recommended )
Do you have an EXT3 partition? download the fix from the attachments and flash it before you do this! Else it will not work!
1. Do all the steps from the installation, if you've done all that, please don't install apps.
2. open app scroller, and open terminal emulator
3. type su and hit enter ( accept if Superuser prompts up )
4. Click the menu button on your device, and click show keyboard.
5. type a2sd install and hit enter
6. type y , type n , type y ( When it asks for it )
7. Auto reboot!
8. At the first boot it will be really slow ; can take up to 15 minutes.
9. After that, don't be afraid, all the apps have to load 1/2 minutes. ( that's why they don't show up in the app drawer.)
10. Done!




Please look through the thread before asking questions, Thanks.

HBOOT
This is a custom HBOOT made for WindowsPhoneMod


for Version: 1.7.5/2.9.7

Q. What does a HBOOT do?
A. A phone has 3 partitions. A system partition, cache partition, and a Data partition. On the system partition are all the system files installed. on the cache partition, well, that speaks for itself. Temorary files will be placed here. On the data partition, all the apps will be installed. The stock HBOOT you'll get with the Desire, has 250MB on system, 40MB on cache, and 147MB on Data. Since this ROM only uses 160MB on system, and 5MB on cache, This is a huge waste of space. So i created a HBOOT with a 165MB system partition, 5MB cache, and 267MB on Data. The 267MB will be your internal memory for apps.

Q. How do i use/flash this?
A. There are 2 ways. i only will describe the simple way, for other ways look here. Download the PB99IMG_WindowsPhoneModv2 from the attachments. Rename it to PB99IMG. Place it on the root (First folder) of your SD card. Then load into the bootloader, ( hold Volume down, menu, power ) and it should ask you to update, press volume up to accept. Most of the time nothing gets touched, but sometimes ROM are gone weird. Please reflash WindowsPhoneMod after changing HBOOT.
