    Phone is rooted.

    System is backed up.

    Link2SD is installed.
    I've been able to delete programs that came with phone, delete some programs and reinstall to SD card... ( I still can't move things to SD card without removing and installing again, maybe there is a way?) I'm getting more internal space..YAY !

    Still haven't done the partition, I did see that option in clockworkmod... waiting till I know for sure what to do there... i'm probably making that harder than it is, but I don't touch anything until i'm sure :)

    I hope this thread has helped others as much as it helped me.
    Again, Ty to all of you who jumped in and helped.

    Congrats on a job well done, as for moving things to the sd you simply click on them with link2sd and move them to sd card. Pretty simple, however there is a few you may have to uninstall and reinstall for this to work.

    You can also delete defaul ringtones and notifications to free internal space. If you feel up to it i can walk you through when i get off work tonight.

    I notice on the Link2SD, if it's a program I have installed it will let me move to SD ...but a no go on apps that came on phone...(which is fine, I can delete and install any of those i'd like to keep)

    I also looked at the list of apps you could remove safely in this thread you posted
    http://androidforums.com/avail-all-things-root/594225-no-need-new-rom-space-performance.html
    I notice they have music2.apk listed as ok to remove, isn't that one of the music things I was told not to delete in this thread? So, i'm being very careful with this list.

    Yes, I would love your help in removing ring tones and such :)

    If you're still using Rom Toolbox then it'll be pretty simple to remove these default sounds / ringtones.

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. 1. Run ROM Toolbox.
    3. 2. Select "Root Explorer"
    4. 3. Scroll down and select "system"
    5. 4. Scroll down and select "media"
    6. 5. Now select "audio"
    7. 6. Select "ringtones"
    8.  
    All the default ringtones can be deleted.
    You can repeat this same process for deleting default "notification". However, For the notification sounds I suggest you leave the following on your phone.:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. F1_MissedCall.ogg
    3. F1_New_MMS.ogg
    4. F1_New_SMS.ogg
    5.  
    To my knowledge you can't change the first two, so removing them will leave you without notifications when you get MMS's and Missed Calls. I also left New_SMS because I personally use it for my default SMS. However, It can be removed if you don't use the default sms sound.

    If you'd like to remove the annoying StaightTalk music when you first turn on your phone, follow these steps:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. 1. Run ROM Toolbox.
    3. 2. Select "Root Explorer"
    4. 3. Scroll down and select "system"
    5. 4. Scroll down and select "media"
    6. 5. Now select "audio"
    7. 6. Select "ui"
    8.  
    The file you want to delete (or rename, I simply renamed mine and left it on the phone.) Bootsound.mp3. I renamed mine to Bootsound.mp3.bak

    As for Music2.apk leave it. Some say it breaks certain things, Though I had mine removed for days and didn't notice anything broke. I recently restored it back on my phone just in case.

    You dont need too. Any file manager with root access will do. I recremend rom toolbox for the simple fact that its a ton of root tools all in one.

    Rom Manager will BRICK your phone. Hope I wasn't too late, just saw your previous ^^^ post.

    To partition you use CWM, BUT...it WIPES THE SD. There is a thread to partition the SD with CWM that should be read through before starting as there are settings you need in it. Ill bump the thread up.

    CWM will work for 4g maybe bigger but I can't get the cards to work in my PC after that. I have yet to get the free tools that everyone else uses to partition for me. I've done it on hard drives & SD cards for years but I can't get it on the micros. I think link2SD will do it tho. You really need it partitioned to get full use out of this app. If you don't the app is just a waste of space.
