Hi,

I always have this problem with LiquidParts : when I click on "Swap" to enable it, I have a little message from SuperSu (permissions allowed to LiquidParts etc...) but the "Swap" box is unchecked. I partitionned my SD card with GParted (linux software) and I have ~1.6Gb for FAT32 and 256Mb for swap.

Please, help ! :(

I'm so sorry for my bad English : i'm French.

No i never had this problem on CM7.
on cm9 box was not changing, but on cm7 i can enable and disable swap.

You can try partitioning using TWRP recovery.

Also try typing "free" on terminal emulator and see if swap is listed(for checking swap is working or not).

You can also try LiquidParts app from a different rom.

---------------
One question do you have a ext partition? i think its needed in the partition layout.
You can buy a bigger sdcard like 4 gb or 8 gb.

I had the same problem with every ROM...

I guess you're right, maybe I need an ext partition. But I read an ext partition will make the ROM slow if my SD card is > class 4 or 6...
I think a need a new SD card. :)

When I type "free" in Terminal Emulator, swap has 0 and 0.

swap 0 and 0 means its not working.

You need a ext partition, you can make a small ext partition, so you won't need to buy new card.
ext partition never slows the ROM(i use it), its only for moving application to a new sdcard partition and its optional(you can keep the applications on internal memory without using the ext, so rom wont be slow).

I have a class 4 sdcard, but class 6 and greater are more fast.

TWRP uses new ext4 partition that is really fast.
