    I rooted primarily to get rid of bloatware. The instructions indicated that I should create a folder called app.disabled, and them move the bloatware and unwanted widgets, etc. to that file in case I wanted them later. Can that folder be moved to the SD card somehow, and if so, how?

    I am not at home right now, so I would prefer a handset only solution, but I can probably wait till I get home if the only solution requires a computer...

    I would use adb shell but you could probably use root explorer although I don't use that program so I am not 100% sure. By using adb shell it'll put you in the system and assuming your folder is /system/app.disabled/ you want to type the following:

    Code (Text):
    1. ~# rm -r /system/app.disabled
    To verify you deleted the folder just go into system and check the file/folder list by typing:

    Code (Text):
    1. ~# cd /system/
    2. ~# ls
    3.  
    4.  
    If all is well that ends well you shouldn't see app.disabled anymore.
