    I'm using apps to sd, and have been noticing my internal memory slowly dropping. If I remember correctly, this is due to apps storing their cache there. Any way to direct it to the sd card?

    I don't *think* you can. Download Quick app cache cleaner from the market if you do not have it. It has a root clear all option.

    In the adb shell, the command to move the Dalvik-cache to sd is:

    Code (Text):
    1. a2sd cachesd
    You'll see this and it will reboot:

    Code (Text):
    1. a2sd cachesd
    2. [ ] Apps2SD is launching...
    3. [ ] Starting Darktremor Apps2SD
    4.     Version 2.7.5 Preview Fix 4a
    5. [ ] Starting Darktremor Apps2SD in cachesd mode
    6. [ ] Running Apps2SD Setup Program.
    7. [ ] Checking ext mount.
    8. [ ] Creating Dalvik Cache on SD flag file.
    9. [ ] Rebooting Phone.
