Android CM7 Apps2sd Script – Simple2Ext
Thanks to XDA member OlegKrikun, CM7 users now have a great script to move apps to their devices SD Ext3 Partition. This allows for no loss of app data when switching between ROMs, most of the time when you flash a ROM you have to wipe data, which loses app settings and data. With this script for CM7 users, you can now save all content and load the latest nightly builds. The usage is pretty simple as shown in this excerpt from the OP:
1. Create ext3 partition on sdcard (via Recovery or Rom Manager).
2. Install S2E and configure it.
The app/script is free to use along with the source available via OlegKrikun’s GIT Repo. We encourage you to try this out and leave feedback in the discussion thread. Don’t forget to leave your comments below!
