    So, in linux MINT, I used GPARTED to reduce the fat32 partition and added on an ext4 partition of 512MB.
    I factory resetted the phone from the recovery. After installing BobZhome's latest, and gapps, it does not use the ext4 partition.
    In case I did something wrong, I went back and used the minitool partition app instead of linux, and redid the ext4 partition on the SD card. Went back and manually did the partitions on the device in recovery. Reinstalled latest Bobz, and gapps. Still, it does not want to put anything on the ext4 partition on the SD card.
    I am fairly fluent in the ways of Linux and partitions.

    Am I doing something wrong on the install side?
    You need to backup the contents of your sdcard to a pc and use your recovery to partition it

    Edit: It's under the advanced menu I think.

    You want me to partition the SD fat32 and ext4 partitions via recovery?


    NOTE: Hang on, I think I found it. BRB.

    I went through many reinstallations, used recovery for advanced/format partitions, reboots, etc. Used partition minitool, etc.
    Went in to Linux and the partitions are there, they are formatted correctly (if I use recovery, the ext partition is formatted to ext3 instead of ext4). However, when I install fresh, nothing is put on the ext partition as far as the file manager can see. In Linux, I only see a 'lost&found' directory on the ext3 partition.
    So, I have around a 1.3GB fat32 partition, a 488MB ext3 partition, and a 32MB Linux swap partition.
    Can anyone tell me the exact process they used to get BobzHome's to use the ext partition for dalvik cache, apps, etc? Thanks, Dylan

    You do not need swap, and depending on the script you us to move data to the ext partition out may only use the swap position.

    I'm not using 'any' script, this is about BobZhome's automatic use of ext partition.

    For me it's a non process. I already had my card partitioned and bobz rom just picked right up on it

    I am sort of new to flashing and messing around with my Optimus V, But I must stop to say Thank You for the volumes of knowledge you have shared openly with myself and the Android community. I have a phone that works and looks Great and I have learned so much in the process.Thanks seems to be quite insufficient, but I will say [HL]thanks to JerryScript, and also all the others who give of there time and knowledge, with all the gratitude I can share[/HL] via this posting method.

    Is your entire card formatted to ext4 ?

    There is a script involved that is ran at boot up, the script may be only using the swap partition.

    OK, removed the swap partition, deleted and repartitioned again to ext3, factory reset and reinstalled.
    Still no joy on anything using the sd-ext folder which is supposed to be on the ext3 partition.

    Bobz, are you aware of any lag/delay that occurs on your current build when the phone detects internal storage space? It seems that the installing apps causes the low warning to stay even after space is cleared until the phone is restarted.

    @mrg666: Installed MiRaGe 05/27 last night and everything has been smooth so far. No extensive testing yet.

    One comment: subjectively this one feels a tad snappier than 05/22. Did you do anything that could explain that? Otherwise it's probably just me or my phone. And I'm not complaining in any case

    Thank you - all - as always.

    I didn't do anything specifically for performance in this build. I think it feels snappier since you just flashed it after wiping cache/dalvik-cache. Actually, I am glad the Cyanbread_light theme didn't make it more sluggish assuming you are using it.Thanks for the feedback

    Are there any brave users that can help with testing a new kernel? I have backported all of the mmc, fat, ext2, ext3, ext4, and yaffs2 updates from 2.6.32.59 kernel to the IHO kernel. You can see the changes here and download here. I would appreciate any feedback with the file system performance and reliability. I have tested on my phone briefly and it seems to be safe. I added these updates since my second partition got corrupted the second time and while I was getting the ext4 updates I included the others as well. Thanks in advance.

    Yes, I am on the Cyanbread_light theme (default). If you didn't add any new performance sauce, I'm sure it's just me imagining it. I clear my caches often - and deliberately repopulate them on first boot by giving most apps a whirl, before I turn on OC. In my experience the phone is actually a bit slower until everything is cached again.

    Sure, I'll give that kernel a try. But since it has file system changes, I'll need to get to my PC first for a full sdcard backup. It may not be till later this week.

    Thanks again

    I look forward to this when testing ends and it's added to your ROM. I would join in testing but I can't "flash on the fly" or go back to a backup with out screencasting. So I'll wait patiently.

    Downloaded and installed your new kernel yesterday. I ran a few tests with calls, texts, wifi, 3g, and a couple benchmarks. I also checked overclock performance all the way to 806(normally run at 787). Played a few graphics intensive games and some web surfing. I can't find any problems here, everything seems to be rock solid.

    So, I'm on BACKside 0502 CM7.2 with ICS 4.0 theme. Brilliant. The only issue is in the notifications dropdown area, the notification box is black and the text of the notification is black as well, so I can't read the notification I get and all I see is a black box. This happens on all the ICS themes I've tried from online downloads and from the Market. Trying to figure out how to fix this, and any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks again.

    Switched over to your newest build and installed the new kernel last night and phone has been running great. Smooth and responsive with not a bit of lag. No problems found as of yet!

    Sorry Mrg666, it didn't work. It never happened before starting to use Link2SD. Possibly related to that? Other than that its solid and smooth.

    I believe you have to go into to setting a change that yourself. Personally I was annoyed by that and many other tweaks in backside and went back to Mirage by Mrg666.
