    OK . so I just rooted my phone (easier than I thought)

    now I have a few apps on my computer that I want to put on my phone that i have downloaded

    it was my understanding that I could just do a "drag and drop" to the phone when "mounted like a disk drive" and reboot the phone?

    or is there some type of program that I need to be working with here ..

    thanks in advanced
    Mike
