    Hey guys, hoping you could shed a little light on this...
    I've rooted my desire and installed the Defrost 2.5a rom and have had it working well, great rom.
    Today I decided to set up apps2sd+ or legacy, not the standard froyo one, through rom manager. Did everything right and even downloaded quick system info to check it if worked! It did!

    However here is were the problem is..... I downloaded a couple of apps, gbaoid and psx4droid, and when i go into manage apps and check both of them out, the option to move to sd card is live.... As in its letting me click it to move either one of them to the sd card....

    I was under the impression if i partitioned my sd card with rom manager and had a rom that used the apps2sd method it would automatically install the apps to the sd card.

    How come I am getting this option?

    The separate legacy apps2sd+ requires the ext be renamed to ext3.
    The roms with built in apps2sd+ have support for ext2, ext3, & ext4
    Does your internal memory drop by much when you install an app?

    you partitioned the sdcard via rom manager?

    It does automatically install them to the sdcard, but remember, this is the old a2sd method. To your phone, all apps appear to be installed internally, thus it still gives you the option to install apps to the sdcard in the froyo way.


    - your apps are installed on sdcard partition i assume you made
    - your phone thinks they are internally stored (old a2sd+ method)
    - so it gives you the option to use froyo a2sd
    - but don't use it.

    Yeah I partitioned with the ROM Manager, and it doesn't seem like the internal memory is going down much at all. I mean I've still got 122mb free in internal storage.....

    So in that case I'm guessing its just what lekky has explained, which would make sense! I just wanted to make sure that the method I used worked :D

    Thank you to both of you!! :p
