    ??? I'm wanting to try out this rom I'm currently on quattrimus the question I am wondering is just to try it out do I have to format my SD ext? Cause if so that would be a bummer. Any info on this. If I do decide to switch permanently I would erase my SD ext but don't want to just to try it out. Thanks.

    You could do a nandroid first and give it a shot without formatting sd-ext. As long as it's an ext3 partition, and there's a good chunk of room still available, you might be ok. I have a feeling you're not gonna want to go back to quattrimus after playing with this rom, so I'd just back it up and format it.

    Fantastic build Bob!

    So is there a way for us who are using the official a2sd++ to be able to update, and not have to wipe our phones? could someone simply right a script to move all of the apps-private and apps-data back to the internal memory? Or could you use the official version of a2sd++?

    Until either of those happen, another work around should be to flash your ROM, and then delete your a2sd++ script, and flash the official version over it, right?

    Thanks for all your hard work bob!
    Easiest way to get rid of those folders is to format your sd-ext, but the sucks because then you have to re-install everything. Another way is to put sdcard in PC and remove those folders. Also a file manager maybe able to delete those folders...I'm not sure since they are mounted. Another idea is to do an advance restore of your sd-ext before you flashed a2sd++.

    If you did partition your SD card, is there a specific method when wiping and flashing a new rom? I did it once, but I lost all my titanium backup data.+

    I currently have a partition and run CM9 and when I updated to Beta2 or trying JB, I lose all backup data for titanium.

    You can either do a manual backup of your sd-ext partition by mounting your sd-card in a PC, or through an advanced nandroid in CWM Recovery.

    but what do those two folders include? are they important data files for the apps that include settings etc?

    From what I'm reading on here, it seems that some people haven't had any data problems, at least since the 8/31 build, but others still do. My Optimus V still disconnects occasionally. Sometimes I can get it back on by toggling Airplane Mode and/or mobile data, but other times a reboot is necessary. Has anybody had data problems but got them resolved? If so, what was done to fix it? Is there something else I can try? I don't believe the problem is my device, because I flashed back to Bob's ICS ROM and it worked fine. I'm on the ZV9 baseband, FWIW. Thanks in advance for any and all advice!

    I am a habitual user of Swiftkey 3 as my keyboard of choice. I didn't try it on the last build, but it doesn't want to stick on this build. I can get it set as the default input, but it always seems to switch back. I'll do some more testing to see if I can find the trigger. Anyone else having trouble with a third party keyboard?

    So do I then just drag and drop the back up of the partition after flashing?

    The contents of the partition, not the partition itself.

    I did a search through Root Explorer, from the root directory, and I can't seem to find where Swiftkey is installed. No .apk's show up in the search results.

    Try using titanium to convert to system app. That worked for me.

    So I made an application that generates a logcat without root access for my own development purposes (its on Google play anyway), and it works perfectly fine on ICS. It does not work on jellybean.... it generates a completely empty file. It's not like I need to fix it, but in my usual lazy fashion it's easier to tap an icon than to fire up terminal... any ideas Bob?

    To be more descriptive, my app asks for permission to read logs and then executes the command logcat -d > /sdcard/time logcat was generated (application checks time before generating) as a sub-process of log. The -d tag pulls the entire log file so that the app doesn't continue to run trying to endlessly generate the log. The log is empty... but the same command in terminal does the job.

    Here's what I've got in sd-ext/app/


    No sign of it. But it shows up in the app drawer.


    So I guess maybe it's a bad install?
