    Could someone please explain to me exactly how link 2 sd or app2sd thing works? I have tried several ROMS and the one I have settled on is Gingersnap 2.2 Finale because I want to use my phone for gaming, music with beats, and a super fast ROM. I love the ROM but my issue is space so I created a 2GB ext3 partition on my 32gb SD card so I can move the Davlik cache over onto it so I can have a lot of apps. I used Dark Tremors GUI from the market and have flashed the zip in CW recovery and have successfully moved the davlik cahe but every time I do my brightness settings and volume settings wont stay. Example: The screen orientation always stays or during night I turn the brightness down so i'm not blinded by the back light but when the power button is pushed or it goes to sleep the brightness stays full, and vise versa during the day. It ONLY stays if I change them to the setting I want and reboot. I've tried re flashing the ROM after moving the dalvik cache but then all my apps are gone. Could anyone offer some sort of incite or advice to my situation at all?

    Since GS is a port using Mirage as the base take a look at the following link

    Hope this helps.

    OM-Mandylion uses the same script for the sd-ext partition, but you well have to edit this part of the script so that the sdcard is not burned out.

    #-- SDCard Speed Fix
    if [ -e /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb ]
      /system/xbin/echo "8192" > /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb;
    Change to:

    #-- SDCard Speed Fix
    if [ -e /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb ]
      /system/xbin/echo "2048" > /sys/devices/virtual/bdi/179:0/read_ahead_kb;
