    First of all I know there is loads of threads kicking about addressing this very subject, but after reading these threads I am very confused. Can somebody please lead me through rooting my 2.1 optimus so I can install apps2sd, as well as the installing of apps2sd (or a link to a CLEAR step by step guide) All help appreciated, thanks, Craig

    I've tried using that but I can't get it working. The cmd window says device not found, any ideas? am i missing something?

    Yes I did, just this second managed to get it working, just started for some reason! think it was successful, I have some foreign looking app icons in my drawer. does that sound right? How do I go about installing apps2sd after I've partitioned my sd card??

    I think I've done it, I've had a few problems along the way. Will test fully tomorrow, as it's now half 1 and god knows what time my son will have me up in the morning!

    z4root just roots your device... It doesn't install Apps2SD... If you are running 2.1, there's a way but it's a little risky as it can damage your SD or Your device can get messed up...

    There's no 2nd way to install Apps2SD in 2.1... I didn't do it & don't recommened it... If you want to do it, here's the Instructions: 1click app2sd now includes 1 click root - Android @ MoDaCo

    Now, another way for GT540 is to update to 2.2... dudeman1996 has posted a nice & perfect guide on how to install 2.2 in GT540, in this forum... No one explained clearly about it like he did... This is the thread: http://androidforums.com/lg-optimus-gt540/251202-cyanogenmod-6-1-android-2-2-here-gt540.html Don't forget to thank him! :D
