How many apps can you have installed?
Without modifications, you have about ~70MB of application space when you first get your phone. There's no specific number that it will stop at, but when your space is full you're maxed out - unless you root your G1, and move the Applications to the MSD/MSDHC card.
That brings me to my next questions
1)how could i download then install to my SD card
2)If I figure out how to download/install them to my SD card and lets say reset my phone how would i readd them if there on my card?
Get the program astro, it does both. It copies a backup to your sd card (which you should backup to your PC regularly) and can restore from the sd card if you wipe your phone.
Keep in mind it only does the .apk file, NOT all the settings as far as I know.
Remember that you can not run apps from your SD card at this time.
Right you would need to re-add Astro first and then restore.
Uhm, yes you can. All you need is root. Easily done.
For thoose of us that dont want to take the chance of screwing up our phones there is no way to safely run apps from an sd card.
I will wait for a safe way to run apps from the sd card.
Well, if you updated your phone from RC29 to RC30 (ota) you did the same thing (flashing) that you would be doing yourself. The way you get root is a leaked nbh from HTC - unless HTC is in the business of bricking their own devices, I'd almost go as far as to say that you would have to try pretty damn hard to make it brick your phone. I've not seen a single report of anyone bricking their phone, but to each their own.
