    Well i've had fresh 1.1 for about 3 weeks, and recently partitioned
    my sd card. But i'm not sure if i did it right, because even thou
    that I read in a couple of places how to do it, still when i check in
    or under sd and internal memory it shows as if they're still being installed
    like before(not app2sd). So what gives? what if anything am I doing
    wrong. And if so how could I check if apps are in fact being installed
    on my sd. Also I read something about cache being moved to sd, and
    something about changing ext 2 to ext3 or something like that. I
    know this may in fact sound like simple or even STUPID questions but
    I AM A NOOB.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR THE HELP!

    I'm pretty sure if you did it correctly you would have to uninstall some apps and reinstall them. Also try removing your SD card and see if the phone loses its mind

    you have to reinstall the apps if you partitioned correctly.. now.. if you did.. do NOT remove the SD card while powered up.. doing that can result in bricking the phone..requiring a RUU reset...oh yeah... hope the SD card never fails on you....

    Sorry, bad advice. I should have said take it out BEFORE booting, although I guess that isn't a good idea either. I took mine out and nothing would load, but I certainly didn't have to do more than a hard reset to get it back to normal o_O

    Soooo. What does it mean if I haven't had to re-install any apps thus far after rooting my phone?? Does it mean I didn't do it right?? What can I do to fix this? Because i've also noticed that I am missing some apps/ programs that supposedly come with the flash root. I know that I got the wireless tether app, the es file explorer, the recovery flasher,and the super user permissions. But I don't see the apps2sd app, or busybox?? What gives?

    apps2sd and busybox aren't "apps", they're components of the ROM (sort of).

    Apps2sd is more of an "ability" than anything, and busybox is included in all ROM's that I know of, whether it says it or not. Busybox is...well, I honestly don't know what it is lol, but it's not an app, so it won't show up on your phone.

    busy box is more of a set of Linux commands that were not included with stock Android but are needed to fully use root access
