    Hello all

    Ive been working on getting the ext partition to work on MIUI but with no luck.

    Phone: ___HTC Desire GSM
    OS:______MIUI 2.1.13
    SD Card:__16 Gb Class 2 card

    Ive formatted the SD Card following all the instructions ive come across + some own ideas but I cant get the phone to recognize the card afterwards.
    [14.5Gb FAT32] [512Mb Ext2] Has been my most used setup for the card.
    Ive used "Disk Manager", "Minitool Partition Wizard", "Gparted" (Installed ubuntu aswell) etc etc

    I managed to get the phone to recognize the Ext partition once, but then it wouldnt let me use the Fat32 partition.
    Which wont do me any good :)

    Any superior heads out there who has some thoughts about this issue?
    I will appreciate every answer.

    Now it wont recognize the SD Card anymore and its "broken"...
    Only way back now is to mount the card in my Bada phone and format it there to then format it again on my Desire.

    I am blank on ideas

    Im using a version of Xavierjohn MIUI ROM but i dont know if your card could run it...Im running this ROM with class 10 SD Card...Anyway...The ROM Version D2EXT X-PART you can find it here

    In order to format your SD Cards partitions use this urdate.zip

    Boot your phone into recovery and then install zip from your SD Card.Then go to Wipe|Format and format everything...After this go to Advanced and partition your sd from scratch and remember to leave a Swap partition of 512MB...

    Finaly reboot into recovery and install your ROM...

    Hope i help you...
