    I've just rooted my Hero, and now want to move apps to my sd card but can't figure out how.

    I downloaded the app Titanium and backed up CoPilot Live to my sd card, but I don't get what that's actually done and if as a result I can now delete copilot off my phone and use it from my sd card, which is what I want to do.

    Any guidance on what exactly I need to do to move apps to the sd card?

    Thanks

    Are you running android 2.2 or 2.1?

    Which 2.1 ROM, stock or a third-party custom ROM?

    p.s. 2.2 is available thanks to several ROM developers. :)

    Ok omidb1, I see you're considering Froyd 1.6 (a 2.2 ROM :)), but you don't know how to install it.

    Here's a step by step I wrote.

    If you rooted your phone's current firmware, then you can just skip to the 'putting a custom ROM on' bit. If you've already switched to custom firmware it's the same process as last time but with the froyd files :)

    Since you'd switching to 2.2, which supports moving apps to the sdcard, it's a very easy process and can be done in a few steps.

    I'm trying to follow your step by step guide, but I'm stuck. I'm just booing up my phone in recovery mode and it's stuck at the Hero logo with "fastboot usb" written in the top corner. Is that normal?

    Also, in the step where i have to flash clockwork in RM, i do it and it seems to have completed but then gets stuck and force closes.
