    after all the hype and the drama over 2.1 its finally here and yeah its smoother to use and nicer to look at but has it really had an impact on the phone?

    The reason i wanted it was for apps2sd which i have now found is not supported until 2.2 (gutted) as anyone found a way around this issue?

    because the internal phone memory is lame!

    Yes. Root it, install Apps2SD, Bob's your uncle.

    So how do you root the gt540 on 2.1 the Enable Root Permission , appears to be missing, and it was their on 1.6

    - Turn on the device and click the icon to open the phone dialler
    - Enter the code '3845#*540#'
    - Select the option 'Module Test', then 'Stability Test' then 'Enable Root Permission'
    - You will now be prompted for a password - enter :SWIFT::GT540:
    - A toast message will briefly appear saying 'OK' - your root access is now enabled!
    - Reboot your device, and now when you connect via ADB, you'll see you have a root prompt (#).

    I ran apptosd after rooting the gt540 , apptosd says my sd card needs partitioning , so i split it 50/50, and press apply , apptosd says done and reboots my gt540 , but when i run apptosd again it still says my sd card needs partitioning :confused:

    sorry to hear you having trouble...a guy from modaco called joestone posted the following on the same forum ive put above..

    "App2sd copies all application from the device to the sd card. I use 3GB for apps, but 750 MB should be enogh.To get app2sd working you have to download gscript from market.You have to download mini partition tool home edition from here :
    http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html
    You need a card reader connected to your pc.
    Put the sd card to the reader .
    Start the mini partition tool.
    Resize the fat partition from the end and leave for example 750MB free after the fat.
    apply changes
    create an ext2 fs on the free space .
    apply changes
    eject the card from windows.
    put back the sd to the phone.
    start gscript on the phone
    pressing the menu on your gt540 list a possibility to load script.
    Load the app2sd script from the sdcard.
    select save.
    on the blue screen you will see app2sd.
    start it by pressing it.
    restart the phone after it finished."


    try following that tut and see how it goes im aout to give it a try myself so ill keep you posted o how it goes!
