You can always go into settings => SD card & phone storage settings => unmount SD card => Format SD card. Just think it through first...

You don't need those pictures? Is there a stock recovery backup there you might want to keep?

You could always backup the sd card to your computer before you format it

Yea thats what i did, thanks, n can i ask a few more things?..
1.) For apex, is there a way to change lcd density, cuz when i did it, for some reason i couldnt open my dialer because when i pressed it, it droppd signal kinda like goin into airplane mode..for 1.4.1

2.) For apex as well, is there a way to do the sysctl modifications?

3.) Can u tell me every blur, or bloat app i can freeze on Apex that wont have a negative effect, like crashin, fc's, make other things not work? Ex. DLNA, Visual VMail, My Accnts, Social Networkin, Gallery, GMail, Music, which are all the ones safe to freeze n that u would recommend freezing? Thanks in advance

I can only answer 1. But if you change the lcd density then the stock dialer app will not open. But dialer one from the market will

No problems using it. just replaces the stock dialer. And the apks should already be zipaligned in apex.

RE#3 I have not read of anyone "freezing " the listed apps. I really don't think its necessary just use "apextoolbox" and set as needed for your requirement.
If your not using an app it just sits on the bench waiting to be called to the playing field and DOES not use any space.
I had a Window phone and some old habits were hard to kick.
