    Like the title, I have a HTC Desire with root access (done using unrEVOked), and now I want to do my App2SD+, BUT I don't want to use a custom ROM, unless it is absolutely necessary/benefits outweigh the potential cataclysm that might follow.

    Any ideas? Or do I really need a custom ROM?

    You already have a custom ROM because you've rooted. You can go for a stock rooted ROM, which is more or less identical to what you have now.

    Not really necessary. You can put your phone into recovery mode, mount r/w /system and copy the a2sd script to /system/etc/init.d/.
    Of course, you have to do the right partition on the card.
    At first boot after that, all your apps from /data/app and /data/apps-private (if exists) will be moved to ext partition on the card.
    In attach is the file to be copied. After copy, you must set permissions: 644, root.root.

    Why? Can you explain?
    I think yes, it's what happens in a custom rom.

    It won't work unless a ROM had been adjusted in a certain way. It definitely won't work on a plain rooted ROM.

    a2sd script is a simple script who move some data from here to there.
    I still think it will work.

    Ok. Maybe because ext module for kernel is missing. I will try.
