    I bought the Ideos S7 recently, and I was very satisfied. The only letdown was the shortage of app storage space. I've been researching ways of moving apps to the SD card in Android 2.1, and I've found a few reliable results.

    ___________________________________________________________________________________

    All of the following threads have similar methods of moving apps to the SD card on Android 2.1, however, they all require a custom ROM.

    1. [Script][A2SD] Darktremor Apps2SD version 2.7 Update 3r1 (2010-06-26) - xda-developers
    2. xda-developers - View Single Post - [Script][A2SD] Darktremor Apps2SD 2.7.5.2 (10/03/2010)
    3. [Script][A2SD] Darktremor Apps2SD 2.7.5 Preview Fix 2 (07-02-2010) - PPCGeeks
    4. Darktremor Apps2SD - CyanogenMod Forum

    ___________________________________________________________________________________

    I really like the Ideos S7 stock ROM's appearance. So I have a few questions before I go about trying to increase the storage space for apps...

    1. Will Cyanogen Mod work on the Ideos S7?
      • If so, what phone model ROM should I chose? (List can be found here)
      • If not, what ROMs (if any) are compatible with the S7?
    2. Will a custom ROM alter the appearance of the S7?
    3. Is it possible to restore to the factory default ROM?
    4. Is it a risk to partition the internal SD card?
      • If so, should I risk partitioning the internal SD card for app space?

    ___________________________________________________________________________________

    Answers to any of these questions will be GREATLY appreciated,
    -Andrew

    PS : I know, another thread! Oh well, at least it's another legit question that I can't seem to find the answer too. If you didn't notice, I placed all my questions in this one thread this time rather than making different threads for each. ;)

    1) Someone has to adapt the ROM to it. It's hard work too. To get an idea, look here: CyanogenMod Source (cmsrc) on Twitter
    2) It can.
    3) Yes.
    4) For you (and also me), yes.
    4.1) If you figure out how to do it properly, yes.

    Thank you for putting all your questions in your thread. We don't get a lot of that here, if you noticed already :D

    Apps2SD is probably doable, but not straightforward.

    Interesting, are there any ROMs that are compatible with the S7 or "Universal" to all Android devices?

    Cyanogenmod does have a variant that is compatible with a few devices, but this is possible because of the similarities between the devices. Each device needs its own ROM in most cases, and ships with the minimum amount drivers to make the target device functional.

    The big question is are there enough people that care about the s7 to work on a 2.2/2.3/3.0 rom or will everyone ditch the s7 due to lack of updates when the plethora of new gingerbread/honeycomb tablets are released 2011 and the prices start to drop.

    I just got the s7 3 days ago so I will be here for a while. I have been developing android roms for a while and I plan to get something going as soon as I figure everything out and we get the recovery up and running.
