    Awesome. It's called ModInstallLocation.
    When you turn it on and set install location to external, it allows you to move your installed apps to sdcard. (what dir though?)
    Also, it will then install to sdcard.
    I have it set to auto bec I don't know what dir it installs to or anything, but I verified by installing bettercut, and in the manage app for it, it showed "move to phone"

    So far so good. Only app that it didnt give a option to move was adw launcher. Wonder if its because im using now? Launcher pro moved so i assume thats it. But yea it works ,everything except what i stated moved to the card easily. Now have to wait and see how it holds up over a day or two or if any glitches pop up along the way.
    But so far i cant complain, it does what it says its supposed to do.

    "Edit" Well that didnt take long. All items moved to the card have disappeared from my app menu. All icons on homescreen have turned generic. Beautiful small home has stopped working. Was worth a try i guess but everything goes back to the phone till the full release of froyo comes out. Hopefully its just a bug but hopefully more will comment and something can be resolved.

    I don't think apps with widgets will work off of the sdcard.

    This is true.

    Widgets won't work off the sdcard.
