    Hi I have just rooted my desire to group 2.2 with sense. But what's the business with this apps2sd thing? I want to save files on to memory card instead of it going to internal. As my internal is less now thanks to group lol. What do I need to get and what i is the difference between apps2sd and + etc. Thanks

    Edit: see last posts for links to rom and radio which solves this prob and thankyou to everyone that helped me, im now helping others.

    but if you were lost like me read through this whole post.

    enjoy

    a2sd is froyo implementation. a2sd+ is the rooted version. The latter is better IMO as it moves more data to SD and it does not rely on the developer to build in this functionality.

    If group=froyo, go menu>settings>applications>mange applications

    select an application you installed. there should be an option within it to move t6o SD card,.

    Yes I meant group lol. When I try that it only has that option on some, and those that does have that it says unable to move. I have downloaded an app called apps2sd I'm going to try

    so what you trying to say is if you partition it before and then install froyo it will let me save to card? i have the biggest headache now lol, im soo stressed. no one explains how to do it, all i hear is apps to sd, but that dont work, everytime you click it, it says unable to copy to card or sometimes the button is darken and you cant click it :'(

    I'm not certain as I only use a2sd+ which you HAVE to format/partition the SD card on, but maybe you have to with Froyo too?

    Try it.

    Install ROM manager and use that to partition your SD card if that fails, use Lekky's guide below.... If using rom manager, use the same settings as Lekky's Guide


    You will need to have downloaded:
    pushfiles_windows.zip


    • Remember to have backed up your normal sdcard before proceeding, as the next step will wipe all data from it.

    1. Turn on your phone while holding the volume down button.
    2. You will see HBOOT on the screen.
    3. Use the volume buttons to move up and down and power button to select the RECOVERY option.
    4. You will now see a red triangle on the screen, at this point plug your phone into your PC via your microUSB cable.
    5. Double click on recovery-windows.bat inside the pushfiles_windows.zipfolder you unzipped as part of the root process.
    6. Using the optical trackpad select Partition sdcard > Partition SD
    7. Select SWAP=0, EXT2=512 and allow the rest to be FAT32.
    8. Select the SD:ext2 to ext3 option in this menu.
    9. Go back to the Recovery Console main menu and select Reboot system now. While rebooting, unplug the Desire from the USB port.

    Almost mate, If you format a partition on your card then install Leedroid rom (froyo)it will install a2sd+ for you.

    I used Rom manager to partition my sd card, then installed the Modoca rom which comes with a2sd+.

    All works perfectly.

    Just remember though if you partition your SD Card, it will wipe everything off it, so remember to back up if you need what is on there.

    I have not tried any other Roms as this one suited my needs and has been so far excellent, but the method I used was the same as Saint_Viper (post above)

    Dunno if I'm doing this wrong. I partitioned the SD card from ROM manager then re-installed the froyo sense 1.0c ROM but still can't transfer to SD card. Any clues?

    The Rom you install must support a2sd+ steyboy.Then apps will automatically be installed on the sd card.
