    Before you even think about Apps2SD, you need to root.

    Once you're rooted then A2SD is available with certain(maybe most now)roms.

    Yes, you can un-root. Here's the gold-standard thread regarding this, imho (by erisuser1) (probably telling you more than you want to know ;)): http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/86620-fyi-root-re-root-root-unroot-ota-root-all.html

    Here is another (shorter) thread re. unrooting:

    http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/86185-2-1-root-1-5-downgrade-ota.html

    which references Full Downgrade from 2.1root (any) to 1.5 stock - FULLY WORKING - xda-developers

    erisuser1, no big deal (saw your original post in my email and I was like, "huh?" :thinking:...lol -- I do wish you had been able to help darthanubis...still can't understand what was going on there...); thank you for all of your help to everyone, just reading your posts is very helpful and educational.

    cheers! :D
