    Cheers for the reply man. Yeah hopefully i'll be able to avoid dealing with them online if they take the phone of my hands in their shop. I'll keep it the way it is and just see if they accept it!

    Selling blade to CeX...what do i need to do?
    Hi folks, as i'm selling my beloved blade to CeX should i put the original stock rom back on the blade or does it not matter? this leads to my second question, i've currently got a 16gb sd card in there that i'd like to keep, is this possible given that i've flashed a few roms over the last while?

    messed up partitioning sd card, advice required please
    Hi folks was following the instruction as below....


    A A2SD vs. App2SD/MOVE2SD:

    (root needed or a Custom ROM with A2SD support)

    Highly recommended.

    If you want to use A2SD, check if your ROM supports it (in the ROM comparison table there is a column for it). A2SD is also possible if your ROM doesn't support it, however it will be more difficult.

    To install A2SD you need to partition your SD card. To do this:
    1. Backup the content of your SD card to your PC (using your PC file manager while usb connected to PC)
    2. partition your SD card using clockworkmod recovery (on boot press Volume Down + Power Button, then in clockworkmod menu choose partition sd card - choose ext2 or ext3 (I recommend ext2, here is some discussion on ext2 vs. ext3) - then choose size of ext2: I recommend between 512 MB and 1024 MB - choose size of swap: 0MB, as swap isn't needed)
    Caution! You should use Clockworkmod 2.5.1.8 or higher, as the previous versions didn't partition correctly.

    And of instead of going on to step 3 (below) i stupidly just rebooted the phone on clockwork mod and then it got stuck on the android logo. i'm assuming that theres nothing on my sd card that's why its getting stuck. apologies for having you take good time out of your day to reply because of my carelessness but where should i go from here? i'm on swedish spring rls5



    3. if necessary: copy your backup back to your sd card

    quick question about o2 internet on blade
    hi guys, i've got an o2 simplicity sim (contract) and have just added a 500MB UK Data bolt one. the bolt on is now active so i turned off my wifi and can go on the internet without having to mess around with any apn settings or anything! seems to good to be true after seeing the hassle that some blade users had with getting internet sorted on their simplicity sim. there is a H with two arrows at the top of my screen. so is this my phone now working on 3g and using my bolt on?

    was following ztedd's guide on how to free space up for apps -

    A A2SD vs. App2SD/MOVE2SD:

    Explanation of the terms here. Also have a look at this explanating post.

    To install A2SD you need to partition your SD card. To do this:
    1. Backup the content of your SD card to your PC
    2. partition your SD card using clockworkmod recovery (on boot press Volume Down + Power Button, then in clockworkmod menu choose partition sd card - then choose size of ext2: 512 or 1024 MB - choose size of swap: 0MB, as swap isn't needed)
    3. copy your backup back to your sd card
    4. either your ROM should support A2SD or you have to install it manually. For that you would need an init.d boot script that (a.) mounts the ext2 partition on your sd card to /system/sd and (b.) moves your /data/app folder to /system/sd, creating a symlink (symbolic link) from /data/app to /system/sd/app.
    Where to get that boot script? - Perhaps someone has a link. If it's needed, we can upload such a script taken from a custom ROM.


    you can see if A2SD is working if you browse to /system/sd folder and check if there is something inside. /system/sd is the ext2 partition on your sd card.

    i can't find this /system bit at all. do i do this through my phone/computer/clockwork?
