List Of Files/Directories base on Storage Location - RC Version
NOTE: /data and /sd-ext is reversed
SD-EXT/SDCARD - MOUNTED on "/data"
  • /data/data - Non System Applications Data ( not ROM apps, example: Installed from market, or manually install the zip ) - Like Saved Games data. It may grown so big depend on how much data did the app you installed saved something in app data.
  • /data/dalvik-cache - Non System Application Dalvik-Cache - All applications (apk) which stored in /data/app will store the dalvik cache in this Non System Application Dalvik-Cache.
  • /data/app - Non System Application Package.
REAL INTERNAL MEMORY - MOUNTED on "/sd-ext"
  • /sd-ext/data_s - System Applications Data. System applications come from the ROM. the data will saved on internal storage. ( HTC Sense, Browser, Camera, Phone, Messaging... And many more ). It will grown and shrink, but It never grown bigger that internal storage size, so no problem with low disk space.
  • /sd-ext/dalvik-cache - System Application Dalvik-Cache - All applications (apk) which stored in /data/app_s will store the dalvik cacge in this System Application Dalvik-Cache.
OTHERS DATA
Others Data like app_s, framework_s, lib_s, etc depended on the ROM. This rom place all app_s, framework_s, lib_s on sd-ext. so AD2SDX will obey what the ROM want.

It said "OK MASTER"

 

 

 

 

 

RC VERSION INFO
WHAT'S NEW IN RC VERSION?
  • Script are rewrited from scratch
  • New Data Handling & Efficiency script. Now Faster
  • So So Much Better Dalvik Cache Handling. No need to reboot after installing so so many applications .
  • New Flashable Zip Script
  • Add version check for future updating ( not work for version before 1.00-RC01 ). So it will safe to update the script.
  • You can do dalvik wipe anytime now without error
  • YES, No More Corrupt filesystem ( previously there is corrupt fs in /data/ad2sdx/dalvik-cache-app when doing ls )
RC01 TECHNICAL INFO
  • New Dalvik Waiter. Run only at first boot or after dalvik wiped. No need to reboot your phone after install/restore many applications.
  • Real Dalvik-cache now in SDExt (swapped to data). the system dalvik cache was symlinked from Internal Memory. Same performance, better handling.
  • You can found "When your last time did the dalvik wipe" in /data/ad2sdx/dalvik-last-wipe.log
  • Not Used /data/ad2sdx/dalvik-cache-app, but directly /data/dalvik-cache, the system dalvik cache now in /sd-ext/dalvik-cache
RC01 UPDATE WARNING
Update from BETAXX to RC01 was not possible ( sorry ), you should full wipe your phone, flash ROM, then flash new RC01. Next version I promise to create compatible update from previous version (prior RC01) because now it support version check

 

 

What IS AD2SDX?


BACKGROUND
After many time I stressful with Low Disk Space when Installing many Applications, or Slow Performance when Installing Data2sd or dalvik-cache to SD. I came up with some simple Idea to make my phone have big Internal Memory Storage, yet still robust in performance.
WHAT IS IT?
This mod will move all Internal Memory (data) into sd-ext, "but not like data2ext", this mod will maintain the performance, because it still place dalvik-cache and system application data in Internal Memory.
