Default Increasing phone memory without rooting

Hello.

I was wondering whether the phone memory can be increased (by creating an EXT partition on the SD card) without rooting. So, can this be done?

Not to my knowledge, although if anyone does know a way, I'll happily stand corrected.

You can force apps to install directly to the SD Card by default though, would that be an option?

Try this: How to move apps to sd card on an unrooted device: A noobs guide. **Updated 09/02/11**

Works for all phones, not just the desire.

error: cannot connect to daemon

Have installed Google's USB drivers from the SDK rather than that of HTC. Can that be a problem?

The same technique worked in 2.2.

Thanks in advance.

Try downloading the Mini SDK here: http://androidforums.com/faqs/443072-adb-guide-updated-12-05-2011-a.html

See if that works.

Your phone isn't mounted as a disk drive is it? It needs to be in Charge Only mode.

No, it isn't.

Updating the LG Drivers too didn't work.
