I never seen that error. did you install the recovery correctly? you should have alot more available options. look at http://android-simplicity.blogspot.com/2009/08/how-to-7-how-to-update-your-recovery.html for recovery flashing
I've been reading up partitioning the sd card. Does it require a rooted phone for it to be of any use?
you can install apps to sd without root but other then that you would need root.force install app to sd by doing below: you would need usb driver and adb knowledge.cd\cd AndroidSDK\tools\adb devicesadb shellpm setInstallLocation 2
Thanks but I had already done that. I read about the partitioning and I know a bit about linux swap and what not so I was wondering if it would improve the performance on an unrooted phone. Also, even after the adb, though the application can be moved to the sd card, it doesn't move it completely. Can that be possibly changed?
The performance increase is questionable and depends on how much memory your phone have. Linux swaps is the virtual memory and is only used when youve run out of it, which I doubt you will for newer phones. It doesn't move completely but moves the larger portion.
I find the RAM to be less than half in use most of the time so I guess the a swap wouldn't make much difference. Thanks for your help. Just one last question if you don't mind ;)Supposing I do decide to take the plunge and root my phone (I checked the one click root apps, not compatible with my phone) and then perform this mod, will it move the apps completely to the sd or will there be some remnant part left as is now. Most apps move a lot of the data but some like swype still leave over 3mb left on the phone (The original was 10mb).
Pleaseyour are talking about sdcard (internal) but never about external sd card which is onlu usuable with fat32. when we can use external sd card with ext4 partition ?
@enthalpieIts external sdcard only... You wouldn't want to mess around with the internal memory setup anyways, unless if you know what your doing.
