No need to be rooted. You can even root/unroot your phone directly from the recovery menu :(

For those who are on an 1.6 android and would like to use app2sd, here is an update that was made by Lickon and that mount the needed partition on boot. I can't test it as I am on 2.1 rom but I used it before on 1.0.4 emea. Might not work on 2.0.16. Tell me and I would rebuild another specific one. Moreover it may downgrade your busybox version to 1.15.

I don't have time to update its content now.

Original post was here http://android.modaco.com/content/acer-liq...custom-rom-0-3/

http://rapidshare.com/files/358851463/app2sd_update.zip

md5sum :

f7162a4dae4b967e00a2cb53697115b0 app2sd_update.zip

Installation instructions :

boot in recovery mode

make a nandroid backup (to have you current boot image and system on stock)

copy your backup to your computer

place app2sd_update.zip on your sd card root

reboot in recovery mode (adb reboot recovery)

choose install any zip file on sdcard and then app2sd_update.zip

when phone is booted, adb shell mount.

You should see something like

/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /system/sd/ (rw)

make a backup of your sd card content

then you can reboot in recovery, choose "Split sd for apps 2 sd" (all data on sd card will be lost) and launch "app2sd" to move your apps to the sd card.

Reboot

if phone does not boot after flashing, simply restore your nandroid backup in recovery mode (adb reboot recovery is the easier way but you can use buttons too)

Does MalezRecovery v0.21 support the use of ext3?

I prefer to use a journaling version of the ext file system. Perhaps very slightly slower, but more robust.

IMHO ext3 is a bad choice on such storage device as liquid microsd.. writing on a (class 2) sd is already extremely slow!

Journaling moreover is meant to avoid dataloss and filesystem unconsistency risk (which can be related to writing operations went wrong after an incorrect unmount), but app2sd partition is used just to store installed apps (ie: the partition is used just for reading @99%), I really can't see how it can be useful here..

Just my 2 cents :(

# mount ext2 /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /system/sd/ rw

mount ext2 /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /system/sd/ rw

BusyBox v1.15.1 (2009-09-24 15:48:43 CEST) multi-call binary

Usage: mount [flags] DEVICE NODE [-o OPT,OPT]

Mount a filesystem. Filesystem autodetection requires /proc be mounted.

EDIT: cannot read /etc/fstab: No such file or directory

EDIT 2: i found that after reboot the app2sd line from init.rc disappears!

The ONE change I'd like to see is a menu item allowing the selection of a Nandroid backup from a list....as on AMON_RA's recovery ROM for the G1/Magic.

Is it possible to get the source for the recovery? I might have a go at making just this one change.

If you read carrefully, It's written that the initrd modification could be done in the boot.img image. Ramdisk is reloaded on each boot, so changes you have made were lost. That's why I have told you to reboot your phone. I knew knew there was something wrong.

Which rom version are you using ? If I find time, I will try to provide different boot images for test (Currently on LCR so I can't test for 1.6 roms ?)

I you want to help me, that's whith pleasure. PM me

What flags are you using to make the boot image using mkbootimg (or repack-bootimg)? What's the kernel base and board kernel command line?

What's you goal. Make a paid recovery ? From what I can read about you, you are trying to make money and ask others to test.

Are you not able to test by yourself ? Do you have a liquid (at least) ?

In my oppinion, and that's what I apply for my recovery, every fonction I propose is fully tested by me, and my recovery will always remain free !

So if you want some impovement, please ask me and I will try to include them.

Currently rebuilding my menu.

If you want to help me, please provide me you key mapping for liquid. I can find it by myself but i would gain some time.

My recovery is free, AND open source. Yours is not. Mine runs on multiple devices. Yours does not. I am trying to help out the Liquid community, instead you are just being immature about it to stroke your internet ego.

Anyways, thanks for the lack of help. I'll ask elsewhere.

I have given you informations by PM but you have not read them. I don't permit you to say i am immature. I have never refused to help anyone. I have just asked you why you where not able to test your recovery by yourself. Instead of giving me an answer, you just agress me. My recovery could work on any devices too. I just have to the kernel and rebuild the img file. I just hope it helps people. All I do is for community no for my "internet ego" as you have written.

If you appreciate my work and wait to support me, please no donation, just tell it, that's all.

Good luck in you work.

That's what I did, telling Koush what was the base address for liquid as he was requesting. Strange reaction.

For public information, base address is 0x2000000.

Good luck in his work.
