Anyway, I've tried flashing the userinitmount.zip in recovery, I've tried both the script and .zip flash versions of the app2ext, and the further I can get is to have all the apk's on the ext3 partition and also in the froyo2fat folder, but I cannot access the sd-ext folder (or mmcblk0p2) while the phone is booted up. I've tried mounting the partition manually with "mount -o rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 /sd-ext" both with and without an existing sd-ext folder. I've tried manually editing the permissions of mmcblk0p2 and sd-ext to no avail. I always get the same error- Invalid Argument- when trying to mount manually.
As far as I can see, all topics on FireRat's method is for the G1/Dream, but it says in his thread that this should work for any device and any rom that uses init.d and userinit, am I wrong to assume this should work for my droid?
I'm running CM6.0.0 with p3droid LV 250-1250 kernel with ext2/3/4 support overclocked to 1100, have the Watermark'd theme and have tried wiping with a fresh install of all of the above, or just doing it from an existing install, all with the same results.
Most of the time when running the script (both from adb or from terminal emulator) it has a bunch of error messages like cannot create /sd-ext/app and folder does not exist, or it just exits with one big error message about mounting sd-ext.
I believe the only way I could get the script to work without error messages is booting the phone into recovery and using adb, but under recovery the apps are inaccessible through FireRat's script.
Sorry for the long post, but I'd like a push in the right direction here. I'm sick of the Apps2FAT method, and would like to go back to the ext method since I run linux and have no problem with an ext partition (except my phone not mounting it, Grr)
Also- I tried a script that I found on theme forums for using the cm4 method of apps2ext (creating symlinks for the folders themselves, not the individual apk's, I remember this method working for me once upon a time) but after flashing the .zip it just bootlooped to the motorola logo. I flashed the zip right after wiping and reflashing the ROM, kernel, and theme with no reboot inbetween.
HELP please and thank you!
p.s.- just remembered there was some discussion about the memory card class (mine is a class 2 which came with my droid from verizon) but this shouldn't have to do with simply getting the partition to mount into cm6, amirite?
