    Hello.

    I was wondering whether the phone memory can be increased (by creating an EXT partition on the SD card) without rooting. So, can this be done? :)

    Not to my knowledge, although if anyone does know a way, I'll happily stand corrected.

    You can force apps to install directly to the SD Card by default though, would that be an option?

    Thanks for the link. :)

    However, when I type adb devices (or adb shell), the following appears :

    * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    ADB server didn't ACK
    * failed to start daemon *
    error: cannot connect to daemon

    Have installed Google's USB drivers from the SDK rather than that of HTC. Can that be a problem?

    The same technique worked in 2.2.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Your phone isn't mounted as a disk drive is it? It needs to be in Charge Only mode.

    No, it isn't. :)

    Updating the LG Drivers too didn't work. :)
