Hi Max-Greece, Can you please guide me how did you do the APP2SD on your Optimus (I am on 2.1 Android version), I am new to Android, I have tried severaaaaaal ways to do this on my Optimus but couldn't succeed, seems everything fine with me but now once I tried to download ANYTHING from app-store all the time it says ""Download unsuccessful"".
According to my judgment APP2SD installation process has moved the download cache folder to the SD-card as well that is why phone can not download because there is no cache folder on the phone memory.
I am confused please please help me.
Right - first off I have little to no idea what I am doing and I just follow instructions.
Having said that when I first tried the installation of Apps2sd the thing failed and I ended up reinstalling the operating system which replaced the apps2sd and reset everything to use the internal memory. Obviously I lost all my data doing this but restoring contacts from google is easy and I had taken a backup of all my apps using Astro.
For me the problem appears to have been that I did not set Ext 2 partition to be primary as well as the main partition. When I reconfigured the card I removed the cache partition completely and formatted the card with just 2 partitions - the main one and the Ext 2 partition which I set at 1 Gb. Again - both partitions have to be set to be primary it seems.
I then rooted the phone according to the instructions in the "root your phone with one click" thread and reinstalled the apps2sd application.
Reinstalling the apps from that point on worked. Sadly if your problem is something else I can't help. What I know about Linux you can write on the back of a postage stamp.
Second time around it worked like a charm for me. No my biggest problem is where to store all the program icons so I can find them again.
