I have just bought a Sandisk mobile Ultra 8GB . ( C8151033340SX )
Looks like I have the problem on resume.

I copied (on my laptop, via 'cp ...') the installs I had on the 512MB one :
1 4gb FAT partition with the uImage.bin (one for each other partition)
1 512mb ext3 partition with qtopia (0808 release from
1 512mb ext3 partition with 2008.8 rootfs

But I have now more partitions.... (and these 2 ext3 ones are logical
ones now, and recognized as mmcblk0p5 and mmcblk0p6 instead of
mmcblk0p2 and mmcblk0p3 before -can I change that ?-, so I had to
change uboot menu...)

My installs still work ok, except that when the phone suspends, I
cannot resume at all.
So yes the card is probably not remounted correctly.

I will try with from my NAND installed 2007.2, if  after resume, it works....
