    Okay, I have a lot of questions here. My phone is as follows:

    1. TTG 1.5
    2. Gumbo Kernal
    3. 8 gig SDHC


    I have been rooted for about 1.5 months. At first i had Fresh 1.1. Then I switched to TTG. I like both ROMs. Never had a problem with them. Then I installed Gumbo Kernal. Great, everything works with amazing speed. I then installed the setcpu (or whatever it is called) app and since then my battery has gone down the drain. I did have the "ondemand" set but still didn't do any good. So I deleted that app. Well, that hasn't done any good. My battery is still in the crapper.

    Also, my internal memory is getting clogged up. I did put a new SD card in and did not format it. I know, my bad. is there a way I can format and do apps2sd? I don't want to lose the apps I currently have on my phone. My internal memory is now 102 out of 159. How can i free that up? I have tried to move all the cache to the sd but that doesn't free it up.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    I assume you rebooted teh phone after installing Gumbo?? some people haven't had good luck with SetCPU but the Overclock Widget in teh market (free) works great for them.

    as far as Apps2SD.. I don't know if the ROM you're running has that support built in or not. if it does and if you run the 1.5.2 recovery, there's a format option in recovery. it allows you to format it for apps2sd (ext2 or something like that). after formatting, if you uninstall and reinstall your apps they'll be on the SD card. if the ROM doesn't have the support built in.. then I suggest searching XDA for info on installing it.

    Just be aware of the possible side effects of running Apps2SD. If the SD card is pulled with the phone powered up, or the phone booted with no SD card or if the SD card fails for any reason... you may be left with a phone that is useless until you RUU it. if it's a simple card pull while powered, you MIGHT be able to insert it and then reboot the phone..

    Thanks for the help. I also have my stock 2 gig card. That would be okay wouldn't it if I had problems with my sd card?

    yep.. it'd be fine... but still won't fix the need to RUU it if the other car fails.. that's the biggest thing that keeps me from using apps2sd.. even though the chances are slim that a problem would occur.. it still could happen and with my luck, it will...

    My phone is a freakin mess. I have no idea what is going on.

    1. Market will not connect
    2. Youtube will not display video's
    3. Battery's gone down the drain.

    The market issue is really starting to piss me off.

    Are you logged in to GTalk? It has been mentioned many times that the market and Gtalk are related somehow.

    Youtube is a mess with the App, try the mobile site m.youtube.com <y YouTube app only works well when I am using wifi.

    My battery life sucks too after Gumbo Kernel with and without setCPU, just a drawback to the faster CPU you get.

    It sounds like you should restore back to a standard ROM or RUU and start over.
