I am trying to figure out how much space roms (for optimus s) uses or which rom takes up the least amount of space unless they are all about the same?

From my experience flashing back and forth between new roms and some old ones, they all generally tend to be the same. Only fluxuating about ?5mb or so

ok, thanks for your quick reply!
I was gonna go with the one that takes up the least space on the phone.
I feel like a kid in a candy store with too many choices even tho i keep telling myself I can flash as many as I want if I really wanted to. :confused:

If you haven't already made the leap, a microSD card upgrade is a solid investment. Go for at least a Class 4 from a decent manufacturer. If you distro/ROM hop, the backups tend to add up. ;)

Yeah they do. I have an 8g card but keep my backups on the computer

With any decent ROM you will gain about 50 megs of internal storage over stock ROM. My gROM for example has about 157 Megs of internal storage while the stock it is based from has about 107 Megs of internal storage.

I checked out the data2ext link and it said something about the sd class. I looked at my sd card and it doesn't say anything about class on it so I don't even know what class it is but I bought the cheapest off brand sd card that I could find at Micro Center so I am sure it's not what was recommended in the post has anyone else had a cheapy sd card when using data2ext? will it create errors or lagging...??

One more thing, I am wondering if I am getting the data2ext, it sounds like it makes an extra partition on your sd card so that stuff (?maybe cache or temp files?) that normally is used on internal memory can be used on the sd card so that way we have more space in phone?

You have a class 2 card. It may or may not lag. Give it a try. Mine doesn't with class 4...

You got the right idea! :)
