Android scans your sd card. When it finds an MP3 playlist (m3u file) it looks for media files in the same path, if it does not find any, it deletes the playlist because it thinks it is empty. To stop this from happening create a file in the folder with the m3u file called .nomedia. This will tell the media scanner to ignore the content in the folder.

If you think that after a long time, the battery percentage is not correctly reported, you can force Android to recreate the stats file with some root utilities available ...

Quite a few people dual boot Nook Colors (internal vs sd card). Take a look at this xda thread on running CM7 on the sd card (for the Nook Color) and this thread about booting from sd card performance. In short, it really depends on the read/write abilities of the sd card you use. A crappy sd card is going to give crappy performance. (Sorry for the ...

According to this article there's a dev over at XDA by the name of DarkStone1337 who built a custom ROM built on Android 2.2 which is designed to run entirely from a HTC HD2's RAM. They claim it's super fast. I know it's not precisely what you're looking for, but I'd read into that and give it a shot if you're so inclined.

I have run android from nand and from the sd card. In general performance was better running from nand. However I was recently using American Android on sd and performance was fine. Sense based roms still seem to drag running from sd but non sense roms now seem ok. You can test it out without blowing away your current install. Just download a magldr ...

Seems due to a limitation in the OS (Android I mean) that hides (why the hell??!?!?) ad hoc networks like HD2 creates. Solution is posted on http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1060909 and is now working!

I installed NexusHD yesterday on my HD2 with DataToExt and must say, it is not slower but at least a bit faster than before, when I installed it only on NAND (internal space). But the performance depends on the class of the SD card. If you have an SDcard greater than class 6 you're good to go, beneath there, you should buy a better one (8gb class 10 is ...
