I have a rooted HTC Desire with the AOKP VJ 4.2.2 Jelly Bean v2.1 ROM from here:


I have successfully installed the ROM but am confused as to what solution to use for Apps2SD/A2SD. I'm a real beginner on that stuff!

I have tried 40ad2sdx-a2 installed as in recovery from a zip file, and also installed through adb push, but the phone won't boot. Have formatted the SD card with 2 primary partitions (FAT32 14gb and then EXT4 2gb).

Basically, I just want a Jelly Bean ROM with plenty of space for apps..! Can anyone give me a recommendation of an A2SD method that works and step-by-step instructions how to install?

  • Yeah I see that - I just don't understand what "Stock A2SD" is or how to enable it...

Create an ext4 partition with 1Gb space (for example). Then, the first time you enter the ROM, type in terminal emulator:

a2sd xdata  

Now, you have 1Gb internal memory.

  • What is y? is that a command?

  • probably 'y' is meant as keyboard input for confirmation (when a2sd executes).

I have cm10 4.1.2 on my desire

to get more space I partitioned the sd card (using rom manager I think)

After struggling for some time to get a2sd working with no luck I downloaded mount2sd from google play - this app was great it just seemed to sort everything out with virtually no input from me.

I dont understand it but I assume its a script that analyses the phones memory and then sends commands to a2sd to make it work best with the card - great for someone like me who likes things simple.

Might be worth a try
