Ok, so I reformatted my SD card with a ext4 partition so I can store more apps.  I noticed the apps hadn't moved so I went to reflash the dalvik2sd zip and for some reason when I recovery I cannot see zip files when I choose "install zip from sd"
I can see the zips via es or astro and USB.
Tried deleting are reloading them. Also tried downloading direct on the phone. No joy.
I'm now stumped!

Try restoring the partition back to RFS. Then, if you still want an ext4 partition, have another go. I can't recall where I read this but I believe that ext2 is a more compatible file system. Perhaps that wil sove both issues...

HTH.




Galaxy S has gone to its new owner. HTC Sensation has gone to its new
owner. Galaxy S3 has gone to its new owner. Now using Galaxy Note 3. Skipping Note 4 I think...

Ok so I wiped the card and reformatted in ext4 again and same thing.
So did it again in EXT3 and can see zips again.
Very weird.

Now I just have to remember what method I had used to send apps and dalvik to sd!
