@vyom I remember you had earlier suggested something called ext partition which is used in case you want apps to be used even if we move the apps to SD Card using some app? Can you help me in this regard?
Thanks for the suggestion for my earlier query on the data moving from 2 GB to 16 GB.

^^ Whoa man! That is some complex guide I have ever seen to do a simple thing such as partition you card!!! :p
Manually partitioning is luring, but is not recommended because of obvious risks.

Anyway... here's the easy way:

1. Install a good recovery like AmonRa.
2. Reboot to recovery
3. You will get an option, "Partition SD Card" for ext2.
4. Select appropriate size for the ext2 partition. If you have 16 GB card, you can select 1GB.
5. You can select 0 MB as swap size. (Works for me).
Your card will now be formatted (wiped out) and there will be a 1 GB ext2 partition.
7. Now select the option to convert this ext2 partition to ext3 format.
8. Now just reboot, and start Link2SD app.
9. Select "ext3" as partition format. And reboot again.
10. Now, you can setup the Link2SD card to let it link all the apps you install automatically.
(or you can manually link the apps to card's partition after you install any app).

PS: It's easy then what it seems. :p

Guys any good suggestions on a good app for playing music. Tried the built in music player and Winamp not happy as I'm having tough time creating Play Lists.

Are you getting delta updates or is it the old way in which the whole app is downloaded when you try to update any installed apps?.For me,the whole app is getting downloaded.

For me, the market downloads the whole app rather then just the "update part". And IIRC it has always been the case!

same for me. this is an new feature but it depends on the developers to support it or not. maybe the tested apps don't have this feature yet.
