For those of you unaware, the "rootme" rom provided during the rooting procedure ( is slightly modified.

It contains a slew of applications in /xbin that were previously not available. I also added busybox (type "adb shell busybox" to see what commands are available).

Apps2SD is also set to go for you guys.

All you have to do is create an ext2 partition on your sd card (browse the dream forum to learn how to do this) then type:

adb shell cp -r /data/app /system/sd/app
adb shell cp -r /data/app-private /system/sd/app-private
adb shell rm -r /data/app
adb shell ln -s /system/sd/app /data/app
adb shell rm - /data/app-private
adb shell ln -s /system/sd/app-private /data/app-private

enjoy ;)

Has anybody successfully got their Apps running from a SD card using the method in Post 1 or the wiki?

I have tried the procedure in the Apps2SD Wiki from Step 5.0.1 onwards, but when I reboot my phone it stays on the "Android" flash screen indefinately :confused:

I used GParted to create primary Fat32 and primary EXT2 partitions.

Does anyone have some advice please?
