Update: PartitionSwap is now available in MoDaCo Custom ROM! :) See this post for details!

Just an idea... Internal sdcard = 2GB, Internal /data = ~750MB - maybe we should swap them around to give more space for apps on /data? Thoughts?

Not especially (I could package it up), it does involve a wipe though.

Coming from a blade. I'm spoilt for storage capacity already. I guess you can never have enough storage, or options though. On the blade I was always juggling apps and moving stuff to the SD card, but I've not had to do this so far. Is it even possible to fill up 1.8gb with apps ?

How do you do this?? Sounds good. And i have bought a 16gb micro sd card, not really sure why. Hadn't noticed there was an internal 2gb sd. What would you advise on storage of apps. Stick to the internal storage, swap them like you did now or move all the apps to my 16gb micro sd which is still in its package. This is my first smart phone so kind of a newbie at the moment.

I don't see deep enough into Android, but I do know Linux well enough. It should work, fstab shouldn't be device specific thing... it says where do you want to mount your partitions. It has little bit different semantics than fstab on GNU/Linux but it looks basically the same.

Is there any option for a fix-update some sort instead of cooking thru kitchen ?

It is accessible only to premium members anyway.
