    Which Rom are you using ? Are you on 2.2 ?

    You can't do this unless you are on 2.2 I'm afraid.

    If you are, download 'apps2sd' from market and it'll take you through the steps it itself.

    nope.. i'm on 2.1, 2.1.A.0.435.. so, anything that i can be done to free my internal memory space? :(

    interested in Eminence, is it available for my baseband?

    No, Eminence is only for the .204 ROM (2.1.49 baseband, I think). You could just install ResMods 1.8 and it would look/function pretty much the same as the Eminence ROM.

    i would like to try out X10 Res Mods v1.8! :) but i counldn't get to download the file.. neither xda nor android forum.. is it updating? or do u mind to guide me to the link? one question, is it come with jit? oh ya..one more thing, can i move apps from internal memory to sd card in Res Mods v1.8? (as this is my main concern rooting my X10):p

    To download 1.8 go here:

    [2.1 THEME] X10 Res Mods v1.8| xRecovery | 2.1.A.0.435 | Update 1/02/11 - Page 100 - xda-developers

    and look at post 993 for the download links. Just follow the instructions on the first page of the ResMods thread for how to install (you need to use xRecovery to do so).

    It doesn't come with JIT but you can install JIT easily enough yourself using xRecovery. Download it and follow the instructions from here:

    JIT Enabler v2 | Optimized | ~33k Linpack score | for xRecovery - xda-developers

    There is a way to get Apps2SD to work on 2.1 but I'm not sure of the procedure. It is a function of 2.2 though. You should be able to find a guide on how to get it working on XDA though.

    Anyway, ResMods is a theme for your ROM it doesn't add any functionality that isn't present in the ROM you are using (other than adding a Reboot option in the Power menu).

    Hope this helps!

    If you made a backup with xRecovery before installing JIT, restore that and then try installing it again. If you didn't make a backup, then you might have to repair with SEUS and start again from scratch.

    can i delete those zip file which i had done installation on sd card?

    by the way, the Res Mods 1.8 I downloaded cant work.. when i installed it using xRecovery, it stated [installation aborted]..

    [edit] how to change theme? or how to uninstall the theme so that i can get back to the SE original blue theme?

    Yes, you can delete the zip files from the SD card but you may want to keep them on there if you want to reinstall anything. It's up to you.

    I would suggest trying to reinstall ResMods 1.8 again (possibly from a fresh download of the zip file). It installed fine for me the first time around.

    To change/uninstall a theme, you can either just install over it or restore the backup you made before trying to install that theme. If you didn't make a backup, you will have to reflash your firmware and start from scratch again.

    Making backups before installing ANYTHING using xRecovery is essential and will really make all of this stuff less of a headache since you won't have to start from scratch every time you want to go back to a previous setting.

    so what's the difference of installing theme using xRecovery and Chewitt's installer?

    p/s: A million thanks to JDwan especially for your fast reply! I'm a new android user who started from zero.. and you're like JIT that compiled what i have been reading up these few days and make me 'run faster'! :D Lol.. Thanks again for your help! And also big thanks to you there who reply to my doubts!

    You're welcome! And that is hilarious!!

    Anyway, in the end there is no real difference because the end result is the same, it's just that xRecovery is a MUCH easier and more convenient way of installing themes since you just need to select Install custom zip in the menu and it does the rest.

    With Chewitt's installer, there was a bit more......user interaction in the installation process, which is fine but it requires you to have a bit of an understanding of Linux coding (not much but a little) to follow the instructions and circumvent any issues you may encounter. It was still pretty easy but just required a bit more of the user (not a bad thing, just not as easy as xRecovery).

    I'm sure I didn't explain the difference very well but that's basically what it boils down to. Hope this helps with your question. If you require further clarification, I'll try to do so but I'm sure there are other people on here that are better suited to do so as I'm sort of new to this stuff myself.

    With this
    , move the applications on the microSD, but you do not need root explorer nor Froyo. It works well with Eclair.
    It is no longer the case, but if someone had the same intention to free up memory without making major changes may download this application from market. Still need root permissions!
    I apologize in advance for any "off topic"and the English translated with google translater :p

    Problem solved! To those who are on eclair, Link2SD is the best app if u want to move ur apps to SD card! Please refer to the link below for detail information.
