    I am so confused as to how to do this with a sd card that isn't new. I read the post about how to almost never run out of internal memory but in a later post was said that with area rom 2.3 i didn't need link2sd. So with that said do i just skip the rest as it deals with link2sd? So the way it gets done is go into cwm, partition the sd card, connect phone to computer, transfer over area rom files, reflash rom, factory reset, then transfer everything back to sd card after the phone boots into area rom 2.3? Sorry for being so irratiting about this, but as you can tell I don't know what I'm doing Thanks so much for your help.

    OK so you want to run area rom

    so what you need to do is

    a. make a backup of the sd card on your computer.
    b. boot into clockwork mod.
    c. partition sd card. (use whatever size u want, i like 2-4gb or 2048-4096mb with 0mb buffer or whatever it was, sorry its been years)
    d. wipe data factory reset
    e. wipe data factory reset
    f. wipe data factory reset
    g. wipe cache 3 times as well
    h. go to advanced and wipe dalvik cache 3 times as well

    now connect the phone to computer and mount the sd card in usb mounts and storage
    this is all in cwm by the way.

    copy arearom to your card and then unmount and go back and flash the rom (follow all flashing instructions)

    boom done dealeyo man

    now wait for your phone to boot up and copy your pics n stuff back to ur card.



    If you need more detailed instuctions on how to flash this phone please refer to my super how to guide for cm7
