Root Miui UK Apps 2 SD problem

Can you access the memory card for pictures etc? how about plugging the phone into the PC. can you use it?

Just to check if the card is buggered.

Hi mate,

Yeah, I can access it for everything else, the phone says it has 3gb of memory left on it. It just seems that its not recognising the Apps2SD partition that I created before!!

"a2sd check" should produce a diagnostic log, which might give some clues.

Is this the first ROM you've used the partition with, or was it working previously? If this is the first, can you describe how the card is partitioned? There should be just 2 partitions, first one fat32, second ext, both primary.

The partition was set up with gparted in the way described in the 'how ti's guides.

How do I find out the types?

GParted can show you information about the partitions.

If you are using 4Ext Touch recovery the "Info" feature there shows the partition sizes and formats, and Tools->File System Check can check for errors, but it won't confirm whether the partitions are both primary.

Since dGB doesn't use the ext partition I can't poke around and see what it should look like so easily :(. The command "df" typed in the terminal emulator should show you the available file systems, which would let you see whether the sd-ext is mounted, but since it's the a2sd script which will mount it I think we probably know the answer to that one.

Were you using the partition with your previous ROM? If so we can assume it was set up correctly.

As far as I'm aware it was working... :)

When I ran redux, I didn't have issues with memory...

Then unless the partition has been corrupted it should be OK. I suppose you could take a nandroid of your current ROM, restore your Redux nandroid, and check that it still works with Redux. That would definitively identify the problem as in the ROM, but is a hassle for probably just confirming what we suspect.

Did a2sd check tell you anything?

You could try "a2sd repair" I suppose.
