So i'm trying to get CM7 on the latest stable cm7 7.1.0 . I'm already formatted and have run a2sd on a prev rom that had a2sd integrated. All I understand that I'm supposed to do is flash the a2sd and that's it but here is what i get when I do a2sd check

<br />
C:\adb\platform-tools>adb shell<br />
# su<br />
su<br />
# a2sd check<br />

Not sure what you used to make the partition but if I had to guess without seeing you disk layout, your partition is in a non-standard location. Best rule of thumb on the E4G is a solid recovery that can partition your sd for you. I know for a fact any of the AmonRA or RA style recoveries will do this properly. My personal recommendation is drellisdee's AmonRA style recovery recovery-ra-supersonic-3.11-gnm.img which is the most solid recovery on the E4G right now.

All that said, not sure what kernel is in that particular rom, but may not support ext4 so avoid going with ext4 unless you know for a fact that your kernel supports it.

CM includes its own a2sd. There's no need to flash the DT version (in fact, it won't work, as you've seen). CM a2sd moves apps to the sd ext partition automatically. Just open Titanium Backup and confirm.
