    I couldn't find where this has been asked, and if there is a better place for it, please move it. I was curious if there is anything out there that will let a user pick where something is saved to once it's downloaded. I found myself in the position the other day with no apps and no market, so the ROM's that I downloaded to the phone where useless considering they where in a download folder. Also, it would be nice to automatically save pictures and things to a specified folder, I've noticed that the Mob Decor app has it's own folder, but the Eris doesn't seem to recognize it as a picture folder. I posted over here assuming that anything like this would need root access. Thanks!

    My guess is no. Especially since we are always reminded to make sure the rom is on the root of the card... that tells me that it has to be done manually.
    No way to direct it there.

    In your situation, if I understood it correctly, why couldn't you just move the rom out of the download folder?

    That was just an instance of me being impatient. I was away from the computer and trying to get a2sd to work. I mistakenly repartitioned my card and lost the market, so I had no way to transfer the file to the root of the card. I was fianlly able to find a copy of andexplorer online and get it done, but it brought up the above question...Come to think of it, don't think I ever got app2sd to work properly....
